    • Evolution and structure of the Chinese bond market
    • Relative performance of Chinese bonds versus other markets
    • Correlation of returns with other major markets
    • Impact of introduction into global bond indexes
    • Risks to the Chinese bond market

    Kristopher Riley, Head of Platforms at Paystand; Eduardo Lopez, Webinar Host Recorded: Jul 30 2020 40 mins

Many experts estimate credit card processors may increase fees by 5 to 10 basis points.

  • How can Financial Analytics Provide a Springboard to Insight?
    How can Financial Analytics Provide a Springboard to Insight?
    Gary Simon, Chief Executive Officer of FSN Aug 17 2020 2:00 pm UTC 31 mins
    FSN’s newly released research, “The Future of Analytics in The Finance Function,” finds that only 14% of analytic effort is insightful.

    More than 50% of companies are simply reliant on cyclical reporting from ERP systems, with very few CFOs having the capability to go the extra mile. And while standard reporting can provide a robust foundation for analytics, rapidly changing circumstances such as Covid-19, or an aggressive acquisition strategy, bring home the need for a more agile response.

    So, the obvious question is, why are so few companies able to deliver insightful analytics and how can CFOs better prepare to answer any financial question sent their way?

    In this 30-minute webinar, Gary Simon, Chief Executive Officer of FSN, and Henry Schumann, Director of Finance at insightsoftware, discuss the crucial information that can be driven from financial and operational data in the quest for better insights and decision-making.

    Speakers:

    Gary Simon is the Chief Executive Officer of FSN and Leader of the Modern Finance Forum for CFOs. He is a graduate of London University, a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales, and a Fellow of the British Computer Society. Gary has more than 30 years’ experience of implementing management and financial reporting systems. He is the author of four books and a popular independent speaker on market developments.

    Henry Schumann is Director of Finance at insightsoftware. With more than 30 years of experience in the finance sector, Henry has an extensive career spanning multiple industries and using various software packages to maximize financial functions such as forecasting, budgeting, process improvement and documentation, variance analysis, NPV, IRR, ROI, capital planning, credit analysis, transfer pricing, ERP implementation, and financial reporting to executives and boards.

  • Webinar – Redefining IR best practices during ongoing uncertainty
    Webinar – Redefining IR best practices during ongoing uncertainty
    IR Magazine & Q4 Aug 20 2020 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Six months ago, the reality of the Covid-19 pandemic was beginning to dawn on us all, as the number of cases rose and countries began to enter lockdown. Since then, nearly half of IR teams have either had their budget cut or expect it to be cut this year, according to IR Magazine research. Some companies have watched their stock price plummet and then bounce back again, while others have not been so fortunate. The last few months have been challenging for IROs and, as the uncertainty continues, IR programs need to evolve and adapt to be successful in this environment.

    In this webinar we will look at how the nature of IR has changed and discuss best practices for how companies can navigate this new terrain – from investor targeting and use of management time for virtual investor meetings to budgeting and earnings prep.

    Join our panel of leading IR professionals and advisers who will discuss:

    •What has and hasn’t worked from an IR perspective over the last six months
    •Targeting best practices in a virtual environment
    •Using management time efficiently
    •Taking a fresh look at your IR website
    •Doing more with less: How to be efficient with a smaller budget

  • What you can't see can cost you
    What you can't see can cost you
    Jonah Kim, Senior Product Marketing Manager Aug 27 2020 3:00 am UTC 46 mins
    Are the blind spots in your employee spending accounted for? You know, the “hidden” travel and entertainment expenses like flights that are booked out-of-system, taxes you don’t realize, or itemized meal expenses submitted incorrectly, or even fraudulently.

    While most systems track clear-cut expenses, the reality is that some costs will slip through traditional methods – a result of insufficiently documented expense policies, cumbersome tools, or simply, varying employee working styles.

    To truly manage spending, you must know what to look for and where to look.

    Join us to hear more from our Senior Product Marketing Manager, Jonah Kim as he discusses:
    - The costs you don’t see, including out-of-system bookings
    - The danger of not knowing these costs, such as not knowing where employees are travelling
    - 5 steps to revealing hidden costs, including what you should know about passive spending
    - The benefits of automated T&E, such as reducing errors and fraud
    If your system can’t capture spending wherever or whenever it happens, you’re not managing all your spending.
  • Taking Finance into the Future
    Taking Finance into the Future
    Peter Simons | Nina Baikoro Aug 27 2020 9:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Operating as a highly effective CFO requires a more business-wide leadership role.

    In addition to maintaining a set of basic habits that make them and their organisations far more adaptable to the pace of digital disruption, the CFO must also add new tools to their belt. Fortunately, none of these habits are too far outside their traditional area of expertise. Rather, they extend and contemporise existing competencies and talents which all effective CFOs should already share.

    We will answer in this webinar:
    - What are the most common habits of highly effective CFOs
    - What role-defining trends are shaping the future of the finance function
    - How you can leverage digital technology to improve your effectiveness as a CFO

    - Peter Simons, Associate Director Research, CIMA

  • The future of client engagement
    The future of client engagement
    Steven Carroll (Refinitiv), Sebastian Enberg (Asian Private Banker) Sep 3 2020 7:00 am UTC 75 mins
    Within the private wealth management sector, the inability for physical client engagement over the past six months has led private banks to focus their efforts on their digital and analytics infrastructure to enable them to serve their clients effectively. Beyond virtual meetings, the overarching challenge is how to understand and communicate – both internally and externally – changes to how banks now have to conduct business, and how new systems, analytics and data mechanisms can have as positive impact on performance. As private banks in Asia continue to grapple with the impact of forced change in how they operate – from being unable to travel to see clients, to reviewing portfolios remotely – how are they maximising all the relevant tools available to them, and galvanizing their front line staff in preparedness for a ‘new normal’ in client engagement.

    In this talk, Asian Private Banker will bring you insights into how banks have adapted to the changes forced upon them over the past six months, where opportunities have arisen from adopting a more client-centric approach, and where technology has made the difference and become front and centre of banks’ business strategy.

    Fintechs – How Open Banking Has Come of Age
    Seema Desai, COO, Iwoca; Sam O’Connor, CEO, Coconut Sep 29 2020 8:00 am UTC 90 mins
    Open Banking usage has been accelerated by Covid-19, with its use now expected to double to 40 million by 2021, according to a recent Juniper Research report, with existing hindrances and fears of sharing data being fast tracked as necessary change.

    Fintechs offering the ability to aggregate financial accounts, access to funds from multiple banks on the same platform and to provide insight into financial health, have proved invaluable for SMEs and consumers alike.

    In this session we’ll explore how open banking has become a table stake for providing financial services post Covid, and just how prevalent it will become in all our lives. From payment providers to funding platforms and credit providers, hear about the innovative services that are in-store to further improve service experience and custom solutions, and how open APIs are ensuring banks can still compete with those more digitally enabled.
