  • IR Magazine Webinar – Why cannabis firms could be the next big thing
    IR Magazine Webinar – Why cannabis firms could be the next big thing
    IR Magazine and Bloomberg Recorded: Mar 14 2019 46 mins
    The growing tide of support behind the legalization of cannabis – whether for medical or recreational use – is already transforming the face of the capital markets in North America. Where the drug was once bought and sold on street corners, lawmakers are now waking up to the potential benefits of marijuana – and the lucrative market the plant is steadily creating.

    Once the preserve of small ‘mom-and-pop’ operations, cannabis is rapidly becoming a multi-billion dollar industry, with both its own players – the likes of Canopy Growth Corp, Tilray and Aurora Cannabis – and a growing trend of large consolidating brands moving into the space. In fact, the industry could be worth $100 bn within 10 years, according to recent estimations.

    In this IR Magazine Webinar, held in association with Bloomberg, expert panelists will dive into the trends that define the cannabis industry, the wave of state approvals that could lead the way to federal legalization, and the implications the blooming industry has for the future role of IR.

    Alec Arons, National Practice Leader Advisory Services, Experis Finance Recorded: Feb 19 2019 61 mins
    Experis Finance is pleased to continue our Hot Topics webinar series in 2019. Our goal is to provide you with a series of webinars that provide practical insights on topics of interest to internal audit, information security, and compliance professionals.

    Our upcoming session covers Balancing the Risks of Today with an Eye on the Risks for Tomorrow.

    For the internal audit function to add value when assessing and evaluating risks it is important to look at the risks that matter most today with an eye on the risks that will matter tomorrow. All functions are expected to provide assurance relative to compliance, cyber and financial reporting risks. A forward-thinking department needs to have a deeper understanding of organizational strategy, technology trends, and disruptive business trends that will impact risk in the future. Corporate audit has the data and knowledge of the business to evaluate organization maturity and agility to take on new initiatives and the related risks.

    •Defining the balance between high-focus areas - cyber, compliance, and financial reporting - against disruptive trends and technology
    •Assessing organizational readiness for disruption and emerging trends

    IR Magazine Webinar - Getting roadshows right in a changing landscape
    IR Magazine and Q4 Recorded: Jan 24 2019 52 mins
    Much has been made in recent months of the way Mifid II is likely to place barriers in the way of successfully setting up non-deal roadshows (NDRs), or roadshow meetings, with investors. The expectation is that roadshows will not only involve more figurative legwork to get up and running but also more physical legwork – involving longer periods of travel time as sell-side assistance with scheduling meetings becomes rarer.

    In this webinar, speakers are invited to discuss in detail how to use what IROs already know and combine it with the new tools and services filling the space left by the sell side to ensure a sufficient number of meaningful interactions still take place. Speakers will explain best practices for drafting target client lists and outsourcing to the best alternative brokerages in the market. The aim of the discussion will ultimately be to unpack how IROs can embrace and own their newly center-stage role in the current environment without becoming overwhelmed and overburdened.

    Assessing the impact of the Securities Financing Transactions Regulation
    Jeremy Jennings-Mares, partner; Peter Green, senior of counsel and; Yiulia Makarova, of counsel - Morrison & Foerster Recorded: Jan 16 2019 64 mins
    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.

    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?

    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.

  • ‘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.

    IR Magazine webinar – Putting the ‘S’ in ESG
    IR Magazine, Corporate Secretary and Intelligize Mar 21 2019 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    How your business operates within a broad societal context is core to the longevity of your business. Larry Fink’s 2019 letter to CEOs highlights that profits and purpose are inextricably linked. When looking at ESG issues, social impacts are often lumped in with environmental and governance issues – but investors are increasingly seeking deeper information about a company’s social impacts as a stand-alone consideration.

    A new generation of retail investors is increasingly concerned about topics like executive remuneration, board diversity or social and human rights issues throughout a company’s supply chain. New index products have appeared that screen for firms with good practices. Furthermore, the pool of institutional investors that integrate ESG factors into their investment and voting decisions is rapidly growing, as is the expectation for companies to incorporate a social narrative into their equity story, and disclose information on social factors – something that is notoriously hard to quantify.

    Danielle Dahlstrom, Anaplan | Omar Aguilar, Deloitte | Michael Puleo, Deloitte | Ed Majors, Deloitte | Ron Dimon, Deloitte Apr 2 2019 9:00 am UTC 62 mins
    Zero-based budgeting is an approach to achieving sustainable cost management by developing a bottom-up budget directly aligned with the organization’s strategic objectives.

    IR Magazine Webinar – Rise of passive investing
    IR Magazine and Q4 Apr 4 2019 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The rise of passive investing has been one of the defining themes of asset management over the past decade. While this significant shift from active to passive investment has sparked wide-ranging research and commentary about its effects on the wider economy, it is time to assess how IR teams globally can have any impact on the decision-making process of a passive investor.
    We will explore how these index-based investors make decisions, how they perceive a company’s equity story and how an IR team can stand out in an increasingly data-driven world.
    We will explore the need for greater disclosure around corporate governance policy, board structure and sustainability policy in order to be included in indexes.
    • Understanding passive investment behavior: The decision-making process and impact on your stock
    • Importance of ESG: Engaging passive funds through governance channels to drive shareholder value and prevent activist situations
    • Resource check: Evaluating return on time invested in proactively targeting passive investors. How does this change how you work with active fund managers?
    • Stock up your toolkit: What skill-set should you be looking to add to your team to get proactive with passive?
    • Understanding the original thesis behind an index and understanding why your stock is, or isn’t, included in it

  • IR Magazine & Corporate Secretary Webinar – ESG for investor relations officers
    IR Magazine & Corporate Secretary Webinar – ESG for investor relations officers
    IR Magazine, Corporate Secretary and S&P Global Apr 23 2019 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Investor interest in ESG issues continues to grow. Evidence is mounting that environmental and social issues can be financially material to business performance. Companies are responding to these market signals, with more than 85 percent of S&P 500 companies now reporting on their ESG and sustainability performance in some form.

    Although climate risk and diversity continue to be top issues of interest to investors, there are hundreds of ESG metrics that companies are being scored on. While ESG roadshows may be the norm in Europe, they are just starting to gain traction with US companies. How should investor relations officers (IROs) prepare for this new wave of investor appetite?

    •Why do IROs need to create a compelling narrative on ESG performance that is aligned with the business strategy, and what should that narrative include?
    •Why should IROs prioritize and focus on the most material ESG issues to the business, and how do you determine what those are?
    •What are some best practice examples of strategies and tactics that leading companies are using to build capacity within IR and corporate governance departments to communicate with investors on ESG issues?
    •How are companies engaging with investors on ESG issues to competitively differentiate business performance on ESG risk management and governance
