  • Why investors should consider an active quality growth approach to US equities
    Why investors should consider an active quality growth approach to US equities Matt Benkendorf, CIO and Lead Portfolio Manager Nov 29 2017 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    The U.S. equity market is in its ninth year of a bull run and some investors are concerned that a correction is looming. While market conditions are generally favorable, there are some fundamental pressures that could impact volatility over the short term, such as rising rates in the U.S. We believe the best way to navigate a potentially tricky market is to take a bottom-up approach and invest in “quality” companies with consistent and resilient earnings growth.

    In this interactive webinar, Matthew Benkendorf, Chief Investment Officer and Lead Portfolio Manager, discusses why an active, high quality approach to US equities can lead to competitive returns with lower risk than the index over a full market cycle.

  • Managing Security and Risk for Digital Transformation in Financial Services
    Managing Security and Risk for Digital Transformation in Financial Services Nicholle Lindner, Industry Director; Leon Manson, Lead Cybersecurity Architect; Ian Selbie, Solution Director, Unisys Nov 30 2017 3:00 am UTC 75 mins
    Consumers are enjoying a rapidly expanding choice of how, when and where they bank. However, banks must now manage the extra responsibilities and risks these new channels bring.

    In APAC, the Unisys Security Index™ revealed consumers are more concerned about bankcard fraud, ID theft and cyber security than about physical threats like the threat of war/terrorism and natural disasters.

    So how can banks balance the need to digitally transform, maintain privacy and security but still provide a seamless, personalized and trustworthy customer experience?

    We will cover:
     The 10 steps banks need to take to get digital transformation right, and how to improve customer experience and trust during this journey.

     How the CISO’s office can be part of the digital transformation journey, embedding security as part of the development lifecycle from the start as a value added component and not a burden as an afterthought.

     Innovative technologies like predictive analytics and biometrics can help provide a seamless, frictionless experience for customers. But how can they be applied without seeming invasive?

    Speakers:
    Nicholle is an experienced senior financial services executive with almost 20 yrs experience working in financial institutions and corporates. She has extensive knowledge across financial services, payments, consumer and business banking, IT, analytics, marketing and strategy. 

    Leon Manson, Lead Cybersecurity Architect for Unisys APAC, is responsible for the range of real-time protection solutions delivered through Unisys Managed Security Services. Leon has over 25 years IT security industry experience in consulting and systems engineering for startups, tier-one vendors, and as a business owner.

Join David Harvey, Senior Principal, Banking Practice, NTT Data Services, and guest speaker Richard Price, Sales Director – FSI UK & Ireland, TIBCO.

  • Getting Your Message Across:  Best Practice for Private and Public Companies
    Getting Your Message Across: Best Practice for Private and Public Companies Scott Lesmes, Anna Pinedo and James Tanenbaum of Morrison & Foerster Dec 4 2017 5:00 pm UTC 90 mins
    With companies remaining private longer, their stockholder base often becomes more widely dispersed. More and more privately held companies are facing interesting challenges in communicating effectively with various stakeholders, without violating securities laws. Companies contemplating or undertaking an initial public offering face particularly acute issues as they try to establish effective communications approaches. Finally, public companies face Regulation FD and other regulatory requirements that may require that they map out a careful communications approach. During this session, we will address the following:

    Trends and developments in capital markets communications;
    New modes of communication and engagement (e.g., social, digital);
    Non-GAAP financial measures;
    Navigating disclosure risks and requirements, including Regulation FD;
    Assessing materiality and whether there is an obligation to disclose (and when);
    Forward-looking statements, financial guidance and communicating with investment professionals, including analysts and rating agencies;
    Competitive benchmarking and key metrics;
    Optimizing value in an exit strategy, whether it is an IPO or an M&A exit; and
    Best practices in public debt communications (as a private company).
  • Is Now the Time to Increase Exposure to International Equities?
    Is Now the Time to Increase Exposure to International Equities? Kevin Mahn, President & CIO, Hennion & Walsh Asset Mgmnt; John Lewis, CMT, Sr. Portfolio Mgr, Nasdaq Dorsey Wright Dec 4 2017 6:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Could now be the time to add or increase allocations to international stocks? Consider the following: Historical performance over the past nearly five decades shows that domestic and international stocks have moved in a cycle of alternating outperformance. While past performance is no guarantee of future performance, this suggests that the cycle of domestic stock outperformance may be trending downward. While international stocks beat U.S. stocks by a wide margin for most of the 2003-2007 period, U.S. stocks have generally outperformed international stocks since then, in one of the longest winning streaks for U.S. stocks since 1970. We'll provide an overview of our view of asset allocation using a technical lens. Join us to see how using momentum-based strategies might be a fit for your clients' goals.
