    IR Magazine Webinar - Understanding ETFs and indexes: What do you need to know?
    IR Magazine and Bloomberg Recorded: Dec 13 2018 41 mins
    Are exchange-traded funds (ETFs) a danger to the stock market? Or a natural progression driven by the needs and wants of institutional investors and their clients? One thing is certainly true: inflows into ETFs, index funds and similar products are increasing month on month. In April 2018 alone, passive US equity funds took $18.2 bn of inflows, while active funds suffered $11.4 bn in outflows.

    In a bid to understand this investment discipline, this IR Magazine Webinar, held in association with Blooomberg, will aim to find answers to these questions and more with the aid of our panel of expert speakers.

    This webinar will look at:
    •What ETFs are, how they work and why inflows are increasing
    •Understanding index investor behavior, and whether the term ‘passive’ is accurate
    •The role of ESG and other themes for passive fund managers
    •The tools you can use to examine the investment decisions made by passive funds

    Short, sharp and packed with expert insight, this webinar will get you up to speed on these critical issues in just 30 minutes. Sign up to view this essential briefing and be informed of future webinars produced by IR Magazine.

  • ‘Nudge for Good’ to Build Brand Trust
    ‘Nudge for Good’ to Build Brand Trust
    Maria Borstnar, Consumer Psychologist, Engagement Adviser, Nudge2Engage Recorded: Dec 13 2018 28 mins
    Nudge: Improving Decisions about Health, Wealth, and Happiness, the ground-breaking behavioural economics work, is now 10 years old. The ‘nudge’ approach is already widely used in financial services marketing but it can still do more - as a positive brand engagement strategy.

    Financial services can build brand trust by adopting a ‘nudge for good’ approach - not only delivering marketing responses but making a positive difference to their customers’ lives at the same time.

    Because social media is already outing brands employing marketing nudges that trick customers into actions not in their best interests, #sludge, - does it mean that 2019 calls for more coherent corporate ‘nudge’ policies?

    We present ideas on using ‘nudging’ tactically and strategically to positively engage people with financial services products and brands.

    People Risk
    Grant Kennedy & Dr Aarti Anhal Recorded: Dec 11 2018 61 mins
    People are the single most important asset in any organisation, yet they can often be the most vulnerable. The opportunities and threats people present to the operations and strategic objectives of their organisations constitute “people risk” – an area of risk often ignored because of the perceived complexities involved in managing it effectively.

Th webinar will introduce the diagnostic tools that can be used by organisations to evaluate the “risk intelligence” of staff, whether in the operational 1st Line, the 2nd line’s risk and compliance functions or senior management.

    The account opening experience delivers a critical first impression for customers. With widespread digital disruption and fraud, it’s more important than ever that banks and financial institutions ensure they have control over customer experience.

    In this live webinar, we will discuss how banks and FIs should approach key steps in the account opening process in order to optimize the application process across channels and devices, while mitigating risk and fraud exposure.

    Mark Elwood Recorded: Nov 22 2018 46 mins
    Just 29% of UK employees work for firms that operate flexible working policies for all employees according to recent research commissioned by TeleWare.

    This highlights the stark differences in how firms are creating workforces who can work flexibly in an increasingly mobile environment. One thing is certain, tools that enable employees to work wherever and whenever they want to are here to stay, but how firms deploy them could be the difference between success or failure.

    Join us in the latest webinar in our mobility and productivity programme where we will share exclusive insight into mobile and flexible working practices.

    Join our panel of experts to find out:
    •The impact on businesses who fail to deliver changing flexible working expectations
    •The technological advancements that are helping firms operate flexibly
    •The benefits and the pitfalls of a more mobility enabled workforce
    •The barriers to successful adoption and how you can overcome them.

  • Securities Services and Fintech: Embracing Disruption
    Securities Services and Fintech: Embracing Disruption
    Matthew Thomas, Asia Bureau Chief, Euromoney Institutional Investor Recorded: Nov 22 2018 71 mins
    Agenda:

    Just the beginning: How much room is there for disruption in securities services?
    Securities services and post-trade settlement should be ripe for disruption, but there are high barriers to entry for fintech start-ups. How much room is there for disruption in the post-trade lifecycle? Where will innovation come from? What are the best examples in securities services?

    More than cryptos: What is the role of blockchain in securities services?
    Blockchain is a secure and efficient ledger technology – but it is too often identified entirely with the boom and bust of cryptocurrencies. What role can blockchain play in the securities services business? What specific advantages can blockchain offer in the securities services business? Can private blockchains offer the same advantages as public chains to banks and their customers? Are there risks with this approach?

    Embracing change: How can firms pull off the cultural shift?
    It is now commonplace for banks, funds and other firms to talk about the importance of innovation and disruption, but to what extent does innovation remain a sideshow for the real decision makers? Do many employees still fear disruption? Should they? How can firms pull off the cultural shift needed to ensure that everyone — from the bottom to the top of an organisation — embraces innovation?

    Corporate to Bank Integration: Keeping Pace with Today’s Demanding Requirements
    Patricia Hines, Senior Analyst, Corporate Banking, Celent & Brian Leibforth, Regional VP, Financial Services, Opentext Recorded: Nov 15 2018 54 mins
    Corporate to bank channel connectivity is a critical enabler for digital businesses of all sizes and industries. Corporate channels act as the digital backbone and flexible integration layer between banks and corporates — delivering operational improvements, improving visibility, and enabling new services. With new payment formats, standards, industry bodies, and the need of today’s business to track payments in real time, this landscape is becoming increasingly complex and difficult for both banks and corporate IT to keep pace with.


    To cope with the increasingly hybrid world of corporate to bank integration, banks must offer a full range of attended and unattended digital channels, tailored to a corporate’s specific business processes. It is also vital that banks deliver an omnichannel digital experience for business clients; one that meets each client’s unique business and technology requirements.


    Join this session to uncover the latest trends in corporate to bank integration, its challenges, and the benefits of a hybrid approach. Learn how a top multinational bank leveraged a managed services approach to hybrid integration and rapid onboarding, turning a barrier into a competitive advantage.

  • Risk Reporting
    Risk Reporting
    Dr Simon Ashby Jan 7 2019 11:00 am UTC 75 mins
    Are you looking at implementing a new risk reporting framework or update one that you have already? In this webinar we will explore some of the options that are available. Learn how to get the most from tools such as risk registers, risk and control indicators and risk matrices. Consider the options available when designing reports and identify the limitations of common risk reporting practices.

    Risk reporting is an important output from the risk management process and should be a key input into both strategic and operational decision making. But if the wrong tools are used or reports are poorly designed then reporting can do more harm than good. Are your reporting arrangements adding value to management decision making and promoting intelligent conversations about risk tasking and control or are they little more than a procedural exercise?

    Jim Wieser, Senior Strategic Manager, Opentext Jan 8 2019 4:00 pm UTC 19 mins
    Meeting the ever-changing requirements of regulations is an increasing and costly challenge for all organizations in the Financial Services sector.

Learn how a hybrid fax deployment, combining integrated on-premises fax software with the cloud for fast and scalable transmissions, decreases compliance risk, reduces transaction times and improves customer satisfaction – all in a single solution.

    In the wake of the global financial crisis, the Financial Stability Board (FSB), with the support of the G20 nations, launched its Shadow Banking initiative, to monitor non-banks that perform bank-like activities. This was in response to findings that certain non-banks exacerbated the build-up of excessive leverage and effected substantial maturity transformation, leading to financial stability concerns.
    One of the key recommendations emerging from the FSB initiative was the collation and monitoring by financial stability authorities of data on securities financing transactions. Following the FSB initiative, the Securities Financing Transactions Regulation (SFTR) was introduced in the EU in 2016, but is not yet fully operational.

    This presentation will cover:
    •the scope of the SFTR (which entities and which types of transactions are included);
    •disclosure of SFTs;
    •transparency of SFTs to fund investors;
    •restrictions on reuse of collateral;
    •sanctions;
    •third country issues; and
    •effects of Brexit.

    Let’s face it… selling isn't easy. Sometimes it seems easier to lure a ravenous lion with a lettuce leaf than hit your monthly sales target. Even the best, most seasoned salespeople will feel pressurized from time to time and result in them not hitting the target. It’s this pressure that spawns excuses – excuses that detract attention away from a salesperson’s performance (or lack of it).

    I hate hearing excuses; it feels like people are trying to blame others rather than accepting their own failings. But what are the top excuses you’ll hear from a salesperson?
