iRoadshow Insight: Where does your roadshow provider host your data?


Trust is a vital element when investors and deal managers choose to engage through an electronic online roadshow. On a global scale where physical meetings may not always be viable, clients need reassurance that their confidential data is being safely hosted.

With the EU now no longer supporting US data hosting, after deeming its protection as unacceptable, the whereabouts of data storage is of utmost importance to those in the financial industry. 

In 2015, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) ruled that the US-EU Safe Harbor framework and subsequent ‘EU Privacy Shield’ are no longer recognized as providing adequate protection. With ongoing deliberations on EU data protection regulations, the subject of data storage remains under scrutiny.

Black&Callow’s iRoadshow servers are based in Jersey and Guernsey, which are both ISO 9001 and ISO27001 accredited. Both jurisdictions are specifically recognised by the European Commission as having a sufficient level of protection, so iRoadshow is not subject to US data collection uncertainty.

iRoadshow is built on Safelink VDR technology and is provided as a fully managed service within the Calligo IaaS platform. Our servers use high-level, end-to-end encryption which protects sensitive information from unauthorised viewers. This is further enhanced by the prevention of unauthorised content extraction including printing, saving and copying, while Dynamic Watermarking deters print-screen or photo capture. Clients can rest assured that their personal data has the most robust protection through iRoadshow.

Chris Callow, Joint Managing Director of Black&Callow, comments “When bringing iRoadshow to the market, every element was designed with the client in mind. Our clients are under constant pressures, and we wanted to ensure that data protection is one consideration that they do not have to worry about. With our iRoadshow servers close by in Jersey and Guernsey, compliant to the most up-to-date regulations, we offer our clients the safest hosting possible.”
