  • Balancing the Risks of  Today with an Eye on the Risks of Tomorrow
    Balancing the Risks of Today with an Eye on the Risks of Tomorrow
    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
    •Managing expectations of the board and audit committee

    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?

  • ‘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.

    Master today's regulations and be prepared for tomorrow’s: OFAC includes bitcoin
    Moderator: Jose Caldera, Chief of Product and Marketing, IdentityMind Recorded: Dec 12 2018 60 mins
    The Office of Foreign Assets and Control (OFAC) included, for the first time, virtual currency addresses as part of the description of individuals in the SDN list. This is the first time any regulatory body has added specific virtual currency addresses to any sanctions list. This will represent a challenge to financial institutions, FinTECH, and every organization having to screen for OFAC lists, as a result of the inherent properties of virtual currencies and the broad reach of OFAC.

    In this webinar, David Murray, VP of Products and Services at FIN, an expert in sanctions screening and virtual currencies, and IdentityMind’s product team leadership will discuss the background behind this decision, what it means for regulated institutions, what we can expect in the future, and more importantly how to ensure that your program is up to date for compliance.

    In many organizations, sales metrics are typically driven by a sales-only view that can diverge from the company’s overall business plan at the detail level. This is the result of legacy approaches that have limited integration between sales and business operations metrics.In today’s hyper-competitive landscape, successful digital businesses can no longer afford to operate this way.

    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?

    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.

  • IR Magazine webinar – Putting the ‘S’ in ESG
    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.
