    Corporate to Bank Integration: Keeping Pace with Today’s Demanding Requirements
    Patricia Hines, Senior Analyst, Corporate Banking, Celent & Brian Leibforth, Regional VP, Financial Services, Opentext Recorded: Nov 15 2018 54 mins
    Corporate to bank channel connectivity is a critical enabler for digital businesses of all sizes and industries. Corporate channels act as the digital backbone and flexible integration layer between banks and corporates — delivering operational improvements, improving visibility, and enabling new services. With new payment formats, standards, industry bodies, and the need of today’s business to track payments in real time, this landscape is becoming increasingly complex and difficult for both banks and corporate IT to keep pace with.


    To cope with the increasingly hybrid world of corporate to bank integration, banks must offer a full range of attended and unattended digital channels, tailored to a corporate’s specific business processes. It is also vital that banks deliver an omnichannel digital experience for business clients; one that meets each client’s unique business and technology requirements.


    Join this session to uncover the latest trends in corporate to bank integration, its challenges, and the benefits of a hybrid approach. Learn how a top multinational bank leveraged a managed services approach to hybrid integration and rapid onboarding, turning a barrier into a competitive advantage.

  • How are Pension Funds seeking new cost efficiencies?
    How are Pension Funds seeking new cost efficiencies?
    Armit Bhambra, Head of UK Retirement, iShares by BlackRock; Maya Beyhan, Investment Strategist, Kempen; Brendan Maton, IPE Recorded: Nov 15 2018 47 mins
    Since 2009, ETF assets have increased from c.$1trn to above $4trn today*. As AUM has increased, so too has the volume traded over exchanges, which has the direct impact of reducing transaction costs versus trading in the primary markets. This changing landscape requires a more holistic view of costs.

    In this webinar, we focus on ETFs and when and why it maybe more cost efficient to use an ETF instead of an alternative wrapper. We will look at the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) framework and how it can help drive cost efficiencies for your Pension Fund, for both ETFs and IMFs. It also enables you to evaluate the most cost-efficient vehicle and gives you a better reflection of true costs.

    We will discuss how you can make cost efficiencies for your pension fund and address the following key questions:

    · What are the cost benefits of ETFs?
    · How will it fit within our current pension fund portfolio?
    · What is the Total Cost Ownership (TCO) framework?
    · How does TCO differ to the traditional cost analysis model for mutual funds?
    · Should I consider ETFs as a key investment strategy for our pension fund?
    · ETFs have been on the rise for the last few decades, will the trend continue?
    · What is the key strategy to achieving a strong return and cost-efficiencies?

    Creating Motivating and Personalized Sales Incentive Plans
    Steve Marley, principal at ZS Associates Nov 20 2018 9:00 am UTC 49 mins
    Discover the changing world of incentive compensation. Would a psychologist agree with how we design incentive plans?

    Sales compensation plans are traditionally designed around sales roles, and they assume every individual has the same motivations—which psychologists would disagree with. One of the great visions for sales compensation is to provide a level of personalization to sales comp plans to maximize the motivation of individual sales representatives. As a result, more and more companies are tailoring their incentive plans to increase motivation in their sales reps and encourage desired sales behaviors.

    Join Steve Marley, co-author of The Future of Sales Compensation, in this webinar as he discusses how companies are enabling personalized incentives to benefit both the individual and the company.

    Navigating a challenging year for fixed income with a flexible approach
    Andrew Mulliner & Ryan Myerberg Nov 20 2018 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    2018, so far, has been a fairly turbulent environment for fixed income markets, marked by sporadic shocks, which investors have largely treated as being driven by one off or transitory events. However, the list of such transitory episodes continues to grow and the cumulative impact on the fixed income universe poses significant challenges to investors. Thus, the flexibility to seek out the best opportunities and protect against the worst case scenarios without any constraints has never been more important, given the continued presence of historically low yields in the developed world at a time of declining global liquidity.

    In this webcast, Andrew Mulliner and Ryan Myerberg, Portfolio Managers of the Janus Henderson Horizon Total Return Bond Fund share their thoughts on the markets and the prospects for bond investors in the near future. The webcast session will also include a review of the performance of the fund and summary of current positioning.

    Funds Showcase: Emerging Markets
    Oren Kaplan | Austen Robilliard | Karl Safft | D'Arcy Nov 21 2018 11:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Emerging Markets will be the recipients of the most asset flows of any asset class by Institutional Investors, according to JPMorgan Asset Management.

    In Asia, investors are trying to find opportunity not just in china, but in other Asian countries that will benefit from a growing Chinese economy.

    Trade and industry developments such as TPP and the Asia Region Funds Passport promise to galvanise investment across all of APAC. In South America, a commonly over-looked area, reforms in currency, pension, education and trade present investment opportunities as well. Africa is heavily invested in by China, and Africa’s collective GDP is expanding faster than the world’s average, and it is forecast to accelerate over the next five years to become the world’s second-fastest-growing region once again.

    This webinar will cover:
    - What will be the impacts of a strong US dollar on markets?
    - How will trade agreements, and disagreements, will shape markets in the next 6 months?
    - What industries will see the most and least activity from investors?
    - Which emerging markets funds are seeing inflows and outflows, and why?

  • Costs and Competition in the non-domestic Energy Sector
    Costs and Competition in the non-domestic Energy Sector
    Arjan Geveke (BEIS) and Tony Glover (ENA) hosted by Georgina Penfold (icon) Nov 21 2018 1:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Following an announcement by BEIS on what government have done since the publication of the Helm Review, join us to hear from BEIS themselves on current policy thinking around the Cost of Energy.

    What is government doing to tackle energy costs in the non-domestic sector?

    Are we really supporting British business, when rising costs of production impacts our global competitiveness?

    Most of the cost rises are coming from non-commodity charges. Is this an essential spend, delivering critical infrastructure with the costs applied fairly to all users, or are the networks reaping benefits at the expense of the consumer?

    And how can we ensure we get the best price when we go to market?
  • Global equities update
    Global equities update
    Peter Rutter Nov 21 2018 2:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Peter Rutter, Head of Global Equities will be focusing on the factors that influence how RLAM’s Global Equity funds perform and how these fit with clients’ wider portfolios. In previous webinars Peter has introduced the differentiated and proven investment process employed by the RLAM Global Equity fund managers. This process leads to differentiated portfolios with performance driven by stock selection and some clear and consistent style and factor characteristics. In particular the funds have tended to perform best when valuation factors are outperforming and there is a risk-off environment in equities. Peter will explain why this is consistent with the investment process and consequently how the portfolios might fit a strong complement to managers with more global growth and larger cap exposures in global equities.
  • The Power of IPOs & Spin-Offs - New US Opportunities
    The Power of IPOs & Spin-Offs - New US Opportunities
    Greg Guerin, Senior Product Specialist Nov 21 2018 2:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    It’s no secret that the thematic offering of IPOs and Spin-Offs constitute a significant part of equity capital markets activity and are seen as drivers of innovation and growth.

    According to Bloomberg, from 2002 through September 2018, U.S. IPOs have raised over $529.49 billion USD in market cap.

    The key is to find the right investments and the right solution for you!
    The primary motivation for many investors regarding IPOs is to receive a short-term surge in price, regardless of a stock’s longer-term potential for success or failure.

    At First Trust, we take a different approach. Through our disciplined and rules-based approach, we seek to capture asset allocation benefits of strong performing U.S. companies as they transfer from a private to a publicly traded company post-IPO.

    This webinar aims to help enhance your understanding how IPOs and Spin-Offs work and how the IPOX®-100 U.S. Index technology can help investors get exposure to unique factors, not possible with conventional benchmarks.

    Webinar Highlights:
    •What are IPOs and Spin-Offs
    •Thematic approach: The market data and investment rationale
    •Why long-term asset allocation capture is behind FPX
    •Discuss the specialist FPX rules based and diversified ETF wrapper

    IR Magazine Webinar – Getting roadshows right in a changing landscape
    IR Magazine and Q4 Nov 21 2018 4:00 pm UTC 60 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.
    • The realities of Mifid II with respect to NDRs – What can be worked around and what needs to be addressed?

    Modern Strategies for Investing in Global Emerging Markets
    Andre Junqueira, Spinnaker Capital | Ryan Ross, BrightTALK Nov 21 2018 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Emerging markets are in a paradox right now. They are seeing tremendous growth yet have debt denominated In a strong dollar, which threatens to halter their growth and thus ability to pay back their debts. They have more ways than ever to trade, yet are suffering from trade wards. Their economies are not yet developed, but some are on the brink of adopting more technologically advanced currencies than the developed countries.

    What are good strategies to take advantage of this situation?

    This panel will join leading emerging market participants to discuss:

    - Which emerging markets will benefit from the potential political & economic outcomes of the next 18 months
    - How to think about where opportunities lie in chaos.
    - which securities are seeing the most flows and why?
    - Which industries will be most affected by trade wars, a strong US dollar, and elections around the world
