    How ETF Investors Can Find Hidden Value from Chinese Internet Exposure
    Brendan Ahern, Chief Investment Officer & Dr. Xiaolin Chen, Head of International Mar 21 2019 12:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    Chinese equities are back in focus as the US and China close in on a trade deal. We believe that simply moving into a general, broad-based China or emerging market fund may not be the most optimal approach.

    Broad-based China or emerging market indexes often have greater weights to sectors such as financials and commodities while underweighting growth sectors, such as consumer technology.

    Despite the recent expansion of technology and e-commerce in emerging markets, the largest sector by weight of the top 5 US-listed emerging market ETFs is financials with a median weight of 25%.

    Discerning investors may consider adding KWEB to their current China or emerging market allocation in order to achieve the optimal sector exposure to match their specific risk/growth appetite.

    Exposed to Nonsense? Spurious Factors in Popular Investment Tools
    Felix Goltz, Research Director, Scientific Beta, and Head of Applied Research at EDHEC-Risk Institute; Brendan Maton, IPE Mar 21 2019 3:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Factor investing offers a big promise. By identifying the persistent drivers of long-term returns in their portfolios, investors can understand which risks they are exposed to, and make explicit choices about these exposures.

    When it comes to information about factors, providers offer analytic toolkits to identify the factor exposures of an investor's portfolio. However, these analytic tools do not employ academically grounded factors and their factor finding process maximises the risk of ending up with false factors. These non-standard factors also lead to mismeasurement of exposures and may capture exposure to redundant factors. In the end, analytic tools for investors do not deliver on the promise of factor investing and they also lack transparency.

    This webinar will contrast factor definitions used in analytic tools offered to investors and compare them with the standard academic factors. We will also outline why the methodologies used in popular tools pose a high risk of ending up with irrelevant factors.

    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.
