    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.
  • Digital Economy
    Digital Economy
    Jeremy Gleeson, Portfolio Manager, AXA Investment Managers; Nick Fitzpatrick, Group Editor, Funds Europe Recorded: Sep 20 2018 48 mins
    The rise of smartphones has given consumers globally unprecedented access and choice when it comes to shopping. Digital-native millennials are also reaching their peak spending years, while older, wealthier generations are also increasingly connected and comfortable shopping online.
    In light of these trends, traditional businesses are reaching a crunch point where they must adapt to the digital age or be disrupted by more digitally-savvy firms. Retailers are rapidly adapting to the needs of these connected consumers to make shopping quicker, easier and more personalised. We believe this represents a significant structural opportunity for investors seeking long-term growth.
    Against this backdrop, the AXA Framlington Digital Economy strategy seeks to invest in global growth companies that contribute to the overall value chain of the digital economy, across the discovery, decision-making and delivery of goods and services. The strategy will also invest in companies which act as ‘enablers’ for traditional businesses looking to transition to the digital economy.
    Join Jeremy Gleeson, Portfolio Manager, AXA Investment Managers on September, 20, 2018 to uncover the investment opportunities of the digital economy.
