  • Employee Fraud: Understanding the Threat from Within
    Employee Fraud: Understanding the Threat from Within
    John Hawkin, Verafin Recorded: Nov 27 2020 42 mins
    Presented by Verafin

    In order to protect themselves from evolving external threats, financial institutions continue to strengthen their fraud controls by deploying fraud detection solutions across a variety of channels. However, it is imperative that financial institutions do not overlook the threat from within.

    Financial institutions are especially vulnerable to employee fraud, as fraudsters within the organization have access to large amounts of personal identification information and financial transactional data, along with access to customer accounts. While these schemes can add up to significant fraud losses for financial institutions and their customers, they can also enable other illicit activity and pose significant compliance concerns.

    Join us for this insightful presentation, as we discuss the financial and reputational risks, as well as the potential compliance concerns of employee fraud. Learn the tactics used by internal bad actors and best practices to mitigate losses, including how appropriate monitoring of both employee access logs and transactional activity can alert institutions to fraudulent activity by employees.

    In this educational presentation, you will learn:
    - The scale of the crime of employee fraud, including the potential for losses and compliance considerations
    - Review tactics internal bad actors use to commit fraud against financial institutions
    - Best practices to mitigate losses and protect your institution from internal threats, - including appropriate monitoring and fraud controls

    The Cost-to-Income Ratio Conundrum. Do Wealth Managers Have it Under Control?
    Lucy Heavens, Marketing Director, Wealth Dynamix Recorded: Nov 26 2020 46 mins
    With average cost-to-income ratios (CIR) at 70% and a wide variations ranging from 40% to 115% the race is on for wealth managers to find new revenue sources, and better control costs, in order to grow profit margins and remain competitive. In addition to CIR, Chief Executives are troubled by the threats to business continuity posed by COVID, the ever-increasing service expectations of clients and how to keep their advisors happy.

    In reality, how many wealth management CEOs have all of these factors under control? What are their challenges? And what are the successful minority doing to boost revenues and increase productivity, at a faster rate than their costs are rising?

    These are some of the questions tackled in the recent Orbium/Accenture survey “Survive and Thrive to 2025: Insights from the Wealth Management C-Level”.

    Join our webinar to hear the key findings of the survey debated by:

    Ian Woodhouse, Head of Strategy and Change, Orbium
    Gary Linieres, CEO and Co-founder, Wealth Dynamix.
    Tara Palmer, Group COO, Kleinwort Hambros
    David Pallister, Client Needs & Advice Journey Owner, Coutts

    Questions that will be discussed include:

    - Is remote client/advisor interaction driving faster adoption of more digitised processes?
    - How can you transition to less manual and costly forms of communication, given that 57% of wealth managers still see a need for paper-based correspondence?
    - Where are the quick wins? Which processes should wealth managers look to automate first?
    - Given that the survey shows 32% attrition typically follows an inter-generational succession, how can wealth managers avoid AuM leaving their firm?
    - How can you attract and retain the right talent, best able to beat revenue targets in the future?
    - Why are advisors and clients from different regions adopting new technologies and embracing intelligent automation at different rates?

  • Beneficial Ownership – Is Europe connecting the dots?
    Beneficial Ownership – Is Europe connecting the dots?
    Neil Isherwood - Due Diligence Subject Matter Expert, Dun & Bradstreet Recorded: Nov 24 2020 34 mins
    Understanding Ultimate Beneficial Owners (UBOs) is a fundamental regulatory requirement in EU Money Laundering Directives. To support this drive, the EU Commission has been tasked to connect the various UBO registers at EU level by 10th March, 2021, to provide a consistent and transparent pool of information on UBOs across the region.

    However, as with all of the EU Money Laundering Directives, each member state has, or will, implement directives in the way that best suits their unique frameworks and political needs. When it comes to aligning the registers, this presents some challenges.
    Some states are still in the process of setting up their register, while registration isn’t required in others. Some require payment for access to the data, while others don’t currently make the data publicly available at all. Data also differs between regions, for example whether legitimate interest is required.

    During this webinar, we take a look at:
    •the landscape of the EU Money Laundering Directives with a focus on Beneficial Ownership
    •the approaches being used
    •how the future connection of registers may work

    Following IFLR’s publication of A Deep Dive into Capital Raising Alternatives, this webinar will discuss the new dynamics in the US capital markets. Despite the pandemic, the US IPO market in 2020 has been quite active, exceeding 2019 in the number of IPOs completed in the US, and bringing to market many well-known tech names.

    Aftermarket IPO performance has been strong, reinforcing the strength and receptiveness of the market to new IPOs. That said, there is more activity – and more enthusiasm – for alternatives to the traditional IPO model. For example, direct listings are gaining in popularity.

    This year has been called by many the year of the SPAC [special purpose acquisition company], given the significant increase in SPAC IPOs and high-profile mergers of unicorns with SPACs. M&A-based solutions remain an attractive alternative to an IPO.

    During this webinar, we will discuss:

    •The US IPO market in 2020 and what to expect in the coming months;
    •US IPO dynamics, aftermarket performance, and IPO trends;
    •Foreign private issuers, and potential actions affecting PRC-based companies;
    •How direct listings work, and which types of issuers should consider a direct listing;
    •SPAC IPOs and what’s driving the trend;
    •How merging with a SPAC to become a public company works; and
    •SEC developments that may facilitate capital formation.

    Failure to implement solutions that are fully integrated and allow data re-use across the entire client lifecycle has added to the disjointed data silo challenge that wealth managers have grappled with for many years.

    When technology infrastructures cannot support streamlined workflows, task automation and cross-function data sharing, efficiency, cost-to-income ratios and client experience can rapidly deteriorate.

    Join this webinar to hear Wealth Dynamix and ERI discuss:

    • The true cost of maintaining disjointed systems that lack integration
    • The impact on client experience, and how best practice integration can increase client satisfaction
    • How harnessing data to drive operational efficiency can reduce costs and compliance risks
    • How to build a business case for unifying technology across the entire client lifecycle

  • Evolve: Ensuring Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in AI (VB Live)
    Evolve: Ensuring Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in AI (VB Live)
    VentureBeat Dec 8 2020 4:00 pm UTC 90 mins
    Evolve is a 90-minute event focused on best practices on how to ensure racial fairness and equity while building products, teams, and companies with AI, ML, and large data.

    Evolve bridges two of the most significant trends in the corporate world in 2020.

    First, the events of the past few months have reawakened the world to continued racial injustice. The corporate sector, in particular the technology industry, has historically been perceived as slow in efforts to promote equality and affirmative action in the workforce. But recent events have spurred them into action, and there are signs that real change could come about.

    At the same time, machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) are arguably the most powerful enterprise technologies today, and hundreds of large companies are pushing AI/ML product development to get an edge on their competitors. But they are doing so at a time when many, if not most, of the decision-makers, do not reflect the diversity of the general population. And many companies have been careless in making sure their data used in AI decision-making is not reflecting prejudice and bias that can perpetuate inequality for years to come.
