  • Win and Wow Customers – 6 Best Practices for Onboarding in Banking and Insurance
    Win and Wow Customers – 6 Best Practices for Onboarding in Banking and Insurance Sheryl Kingstone-451 Research, Jim Marous-Financial Brand, and Sarah Johnson-Kofax Recorded: Sep 21 2017 59 mins
    Banks, credit unions and insurance companies may have differing business models, but they all have a common goal: better conversion and retention rates.

    Fortunately, better customer onboarding usually translates to better conversion and retention. For this reason, organizations continue to invest in digital technologies to streamline operations and eliminate time-consuming online interactions in areas such as new account opening, loan origination and policy applications.

    Those first information-intensive interactions, of course, are the most critical: you usually only get once chance to win a new customer’s business. But winning is only part of the equation. What if you could win—and wow—customers from those first moments and keep them engaged throughout the onboarding process?

    Mark your calendars for this upcoming webinar, where industry experts will share six best practices to help your organization win and wow customers:

    • Easy—Enable instant image and data capture via web and mobile technology
    • Accurate—Extract data from pictures of physical documents without error-prone manual entry
    • Automated—Invest in workflow tools to automate and track completion of process steps
    • Visible—Empower staff and customers with process transparency and timely communication
    • Consistent—Ensure data is complete and integrated across internal systems
    • Efficient—Meet expectations for speed, while effectively managing regulatory risks

    Speakers will include:
    •Sheryl Kingstone, Director, 451 Research
    •Sarah Johnson, Industry Solutions Architect, Kofax
    •Jim Marous, Owner and Publisher, Digital Banking Report

  • Money Talks: Can banks switch to profiting from good financial behaviour?

    Digital transformation is a promise that many have been skeptical of. Join this panel where industry experts will tackle all the tough questions and provide new and thought-provoking insights.

    Among others, they will discuss:

    -Can the banks switch to making money from enabling customers’ healthy financial behaviour, rather than from continuing to exploit ongoing financial self-harm?

    -Traditional banking is on the verge of major disruption, so digital transformation had better deliver *actual* transformation. Tinkering is expensively pointless

    -Continuing to exploit inertia-driven customer behaviour – and thus coining excess profits - will be seriously challenged by Open Banking

    Moderator: Dr. Louise Beaumont, Head of Open Bank at Publicis.Sapient

  • Unlocking Value in Japan Smaller Companies
    Unlocking Value in Japan Smaller Companies Max Godwin Recorded: Sep 21 2017 25 mins
    To outperform the market you need to do things differently to the market. Japan's smaller companies universe is prime territory for valuation driven stock pickers. There are plenty of unexpected opportunities if you are willing to avoid the herd, let cheap share prices lead you to ideas, diligently confirm that value exists and if necessary patiently wait for value to be realised.

    Portfolio Manager, Max Godwin, will introduce Eastspring’s team based approach and describe how it captures the most mispriced opportunities. Max will focus on Eastspring’s investment edge which is informed by our valuation driven philosophy and exploits significant price opportunities that result from behavioural influences on the market. Max will also address the key reasons why Japan Smaller Companies is an attractive investment universe today.

    •Japan is attractively valued compared to other major markets
    •Japan's improving trend fundamentals are not yet priced by the market
    •Japan Smaller Companies wide investment universe has ample mispriced and undiscovered opportunities to exploit
    •Our differentiated approach focuses on what matters most - our discipline around price and valuation enables us to identify the best investment opportunities
    •The team's long term strong performance track record is our proof statement

  • EMD: Navigating Uncertainty
    EMD: Navigating Uncertainty Vinayak Potti, Scott Davis, Amanda LaMarca Recorded: Sep 20 2017 47 mins
    Join HSBC's Senior EMD Portfolio Manager, Vinayak Potti and EMD Trader, Scott Davis, as they discuss our approach to navigating the current Emerging Markets Debt (EMD) landscape. Amanda LaMarca, Senior EMD Product Specialist, will moderate the discussion.

    We believe that EMD valuations have now outpaced an improvement in fundamentals, leading to reduced risk premiums. This has occurred as policy uncertainty in developed markets and political risks in EM have increased. In this environment, we think relative value trades will be a key driver in delivering alpha.

    Topics include:
    •Potential pick-up in US Treasury volatility and its impact on EMD spreads
    •EMD premiums are not compensating for global political risks
    •Relative value trades are key: opportunities and examples

  • Banks - Winning Brands or Dumb Pipes
    Banks - Winning Brands or Dumb Pipes Duena Blomstrom (Chief Growth Officer Marketplace, Temenos), Ed Cooper (Revolut), Moven Recorded: Sep 20 2017 59 mins
    Is it too late for incumbent banks to try and still win at the Relationship game, wow the consumer with addictive experience and become beloved brands? If we believe only new players will be able to do the above and many banks will become pipes - do they have a back-up business plan in place for that alternative?

    Attend this panel debate where the speakers will discuss all this and more:

    - What will banking look like in a post-PSD2 Europe and once Open banking models start to emerge? When will that be?
    - Is banking culture one of the inhibitors of change and what can we do to change that?
    - Define what "Invisible Banking" means to you and the consumer
    - What role will Platforms play in this new world over the next few years?
