  • Using factor analysis in manager selection
    Using factor analysis in manager selection
    Nick Samuels, Redington; Bernie Nelson, Style Analytics; Nick Fitzpatrick, Funds Europe Recorded: Feb 6 2019 46 mins
    For Asset Owners, the ability to compare equity fund managers for hiring, firing, and allocation decisions lies at the heart of the investment decision making process. With the rise of both factor investing and smart beta products adding to the spectrum of equity funds available to investors, the decision to choose a new manager has become increasingly difficult.

    On the investment manager side, the current fee conscious environment and growing trend to move to lower cost index solution, is putting a strain on active managers. Now more than ever managers need to prove their skill and differentiate themselves from their increasing competition.

    During this webinar we will cover:

    • Different approaches to factor analysis
    • The importance of using factor analysis in the manager selection process
    • How factor attribution can isolate an investment manager’s skill
  • Comprehend, Comply, Compete
    Comprehend, Comply, Compete
    Gerard Walsh, Head of Business Development, Institutional Brokerage, Northern Trust Capital Markets Recorded: Oct 9 2018 44 mins
    The implementation of MiFID II at the beginning of this year brought dramatic changes to the way financial market participants work together. The unbundling of investment research fees from trade execution costs was cited as a strategic priority.
    Ten months on, are the European regulators achieving what they set out to do – transparency for end clients? Was the downside overstated in the run up to MiFID II? What opportunities has the regulation brought to sell-side and buy-side firms? How will all this play out?
    Join our webinar on October 9 with Gerard Walsh, Head of Business Development, Institutional Brokerage, Northern Trust Capital Markets to hear about the story so far and what lies ahead for firms in their Comprehend, Comply and Compete journey.
    The event will be hosted and moderated by Funds Europe’s editor-in-chief Nick Fitzpatrick.
