    Data and Machine Learning in Financial Fraud Prevention
    Kayla Hartman, Data Analyst, Alloy Recorded: Jul 18 2019 35 mins
    According to Capgemini’s World Payments Report 2017, global digital payments are expected to rise to roughly 726 billion transactions in 2020. The growth of digital financial services offers innumerable opportunities, expanding access to financial services products and allowing for essentially instantaneous feedback loops. With these opportunities, however, also come risks, including fraud. The threat of fraud requires financial services organizations to act proactively to minimize losses due to fraud. Analysis of data surrounding their customers and transactions is an essential effort to ensure the benefits of the digital payments space continue to outweigh the risks.

    In this webinar, Kayla Hartman will discuss the various ways data is used in fraud prevention. As a Data Analyst at Alloy, a fintech company that provides identity verification APIs for clients’ KYC (know your customer) and AML (anti-money laundering), she has firsthand experience in enhancing fraud prevention efforts through data analysis. She will dive into the ways the use of data is currently advantageous to fraud prevention, as well as the challenges that are presented in this quickly changing space.

    How Financial Services are using Big Data and Analytics to Change the Game
    Ash Seddeek, YamaPay | Melanie Turek, Frost & Sullivan | Brad van Leeuwen, Railsbank Recorded: Jul 18 2019 49 mins
    Like many of today’s leading-edge businesses, financial services companies are using big data and analytics to improve their own outcomes, and those of their clients. By leveraging both proprietary and public information, banks and insurance companies are better able to create personalized offers and service for each client, based on that customer’s specific needs and value to the business. They are also leveraging advanced analytics to identify key trends in the industry, shape future products and services and manage increasingly complex compliance requirements and regulations across the world. Leading-edge organizations are even starting to use artificial intelligence and machine learning tools to automate routine processes, increase employee productivity and deliver fast, customized customer experiences on the fly.

    Join us for an in-depth look at what you need to do to get started, as well as how to prepare to compete in an increasingly data-driven marketplace today and well into the future.

    This panel discussion will address:

    - Why financial service companies are doing this now
    - Tools involved
    - Is this just about the customer experience? What other areas of the business can benefit?
    - Highlights for both banking and insurance
    - Top challenges to success

Opportunities abound in China’s “new economy,” and the China has one of the largest, most liquid, and fastest-growing equity markets in the world.

  • Accelerating the Productivity of Financial Advisors with Digital Assistants
    Accelerating the Productivity of Financial Advisors with Digital Assistants
    Sindhu Joseph, Founder and Rajesh Sharma, Head of Customer Experience, CogniCor Jul 22 2019 9:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    According to McKinsey, AI will trigger an estimated $13 trillion of GDP growth between now and 2030. How can the wealth management industry capitalize on the latest artificial intelligence advancements to stay ahead of the technological curve, thereby both driving down long term costs and increasing overall productivity?

    Through the use of CogniCor’s CIRA platform, wealth management firms can create and maintain their own virtual assistants (VAs) which through the use of workflows can automate complex tasks for both financial advisors and their customers. Through the rapid ingestion of vast amounts of data, the virtual assistant allows financial advisors to interact more on a personal level with their clients, thereby helping them to reach their wealth management goals more effectively.

    The time that an advisor spends should be focused on working with their clients. By automating standard operations, advisors can focus on improving their clients’ portfolios, understanding their goals, and ultimately maximizing their short, medium and long term potential for growth.

    Many financial advisors and wealth management firms are still unaware of how technology enhances financial advisors’ performance. CogniCor is poised to be a leader in the industry, and look forward to bringing our experience with enterprise leaders to the rest of the industry players, be they small, medium or enterprise firms.

    Why financial and professional services firms must get flexible working right
    Kirsty Leighton Jul 23 2019 10:00 am UTC 60 mins

    Alongside the importance of employee satisfaction, the UK is also facing a productivity challenge, on average the UK is 31% less productive than France.

    Peak Passive or Still Early Days?
    Derek Fulton, CEO, First Trust Global Portfolios Jul 25 2019 1:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    We often hear debates about whether we have reached peak passive and how much further can the ETF industry grow.

    • Trace the evolution of ETFs from passive market capitalisation index tracking through smart beta to actively managed strategies
