  • Webinar – Making transparency a success in troubled times
    Webinar – Making transparency a success in troubled times
    Corporate Secretary, IR Magazine & Labrador Recorded: Nov 19 2020 52 mins
    The importance of corporate transparency and efforts to promote it have grown beyond mere tick-the-box exercises to become major initiatives incorporating investor relations (IR) teams, their governance colleagues and outside parties.

    During a period such as this, with a major pandemic and major economic distress, transparency is an essential means of ensuring investors feel reassured that they know what’s happening at a company, where it is going – and also what the company may not know yet. The proxy statement, Form 10K, the corporate code of conduct and IR website are all key tools for sharing the company’s message and helping maintain successful relationships with shareholders.

    Our panel of experts will discuss issues such as:
    • What challenges the Covid-19 pandemic has created for IR and governance teams in their work on transparency, and how they have adapted
    • How companies are ensuring their proxy statement, Form 10K and IR website are effective and offer accurate, accessible, comparable and timely information
    • How investors’ appetites for transparency have been affected by the crisis and economic uncertainty

    Veronica Alava, Raphaël Feillet (equensWorldline), Christopher Schmitz-EMEIA FinTech Leader (EY) Recorded: Nov 19 2020 67 mins
    Today's customers are banking on the go. We have entered an era in which trust is not the primary factor anymore in choosing a bank, it is implied and expected. Thus, the new deciding factor is customer experience.

    COVID-19 is accelerating the adoption of digital services, making almost all bank-customer interactions remote. That’s why customer experience needs to be taken to the next level: multichannel, convenient and engaging customer journeys are already a must.
    On top of these trends, banks are now investing in seamless omnichannel experiences based on personal needs, integrated banking services, and proximity through remote advice.

    What we also know, is that bank customers are happy to have a conversation from the comfort of their own homes if services are convenient and relevant. However, still the amount of consumers who receive remote advice and satisfying digital personalized services can be improved with the right digital tools.

    So how can banks deliver the required experience within digital journeys when addressing their core customer needs in the midst of COVID 19?

    Come join us to learn how banks can ensure a seamless customer experience that is simple, fast and intuitive. We will analyze together three digital customer journeys: Instant loans, Personalized payment services and complex financial advice.

    Agenda:
    • From Online Banking to Connected Banking
    • How to adapt the customer interface within three customer journeys
    • Key customer services : instant loans, payment services and complex financial advice
    • Future ready digital banks (demonstration)

  • Employee Fraud: Understanding the Threat from Within
    Employee Fraud: Understanding the Threat from Within
    John Hawkin, Verafin Nov 27 2020 7:00 pm UTC 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

  • Webinar – Making entity management and M&A a success amid Covid-19
    Webinar – Making entity management and M&A a success amid Covid-19
    Corporate Secretary & Diligent Nov 30 2020 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The Covid-19 pandemic initially led many boards to pause their pursuit of M&A activity amid economic uncertainty and the need to focus on keeping their own companies afloat. But that activity has been returning in recent months. CNN recently cited data from Refinitiv showing that 37 deals worth $5 billion or more, totaling $496 billion, were announced between July and September, making it the busiest third quarter since records began in the 1970s.

    As transactions have returned, so has the need for legal and compliance teams to complete their work on deals in unprecedented circumstances. Companies are also looking at organic growth. Our panel of experts will look at how professionals can pursue due diligence, entity management and other efforts successfully amid a pandemic.

    Topics for discussion will include:

    • What are the challenges and risks of conducting pre-deal due diligence while team members work remotely and face travel restrictions?
    • How can technology and best practices address these challenges?
    • During a potentially busy period for M&A but with limited resources, how can technology help with entity management?
    • How have laws and regulations changed globally as a result of the pandemic that teams need to be aware of while conducting M&A?

    Webinar – Building meaningful relationships with retail investors
    IR Magazine & Tiicker Dec 1 2020 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The number of new and first-time retail investors has increased dramatically during the last year – following brokerage accounts switching to a commission-free model and a significant uptick in investing since the Covid-19 outbreak. It’s incumbent on IR teams to find new ways to engage with these new and existing retail investors to build meaningful relationships that can be rewarding for both parties.

    But retail IR is as much about marketing and communications as it is about traditional investor engagement. This requires cross-functional collaboration and an understanding of how to attract and retain retail investors. In this webinar, you will hear how a number of different companies are reassessing their retail IR strategy, and how companies can use perks to attract and reward an investor group that is long-term-focused and typically votes with management.
