  • TB Saracen UK Income Fund: Light At The End Of The Tunnel
    TB Saracen UK Income Fund: Light At The End Of The Tunnel
    Scott McKenzie & David Clark Jan 22 2020 10:30 am UTC 45 mins
    The UK Equity Income sector has been the foundation of many UK investor portfolios for many years and has hosted a number of our most celebrated fund managers.

    However, the traditional approach to generating income from a UK equity portfolio has increasingly come under threat with a number of the large income-generating sectors becoming ex-growth.

    Too often UK income investors find themselves reliant on a small number of high yielding businesses whose best days are behind them and where dividend payments look fragile.

    All of this has come during a time when investors have prized growth over value and UK equities have been shunned in the light of the Brexit chaos.

    Post the recent election the political outlook has become more stable and the path to Brexit should become clearer. Is there now light at the end of the tunnel ?

    When we launched the TB Saracen UK Income fund in April 2015 we were determined to take a different approach in the light of these challenges.

    We strongly believe that valuations matter and that equity income funds should provide investors with a high and growing income.

    In this webcast we review the performance of the TB Saracen UK Income fund and outline why we feel the Fund is well positioned to meet the needs of income investors.

    Some of the key themes we will address include:

    - Why value strategies are still relevant in a changing world
    - The importance of a focussed, ‘multicap’ approach
    - The risks to UK dividends going forward

    2020 Trends in Emerging Market Fintech: A Venture Capital Perspective
    Alexander Piskunov, Partner, Ruvento Ventures Jan 23 2020 11:00 am UTC 30 mins
    This will discuss the two major trends increasingly relevant for the development of Fintech ecosystems across developing countries from the perspective of a Venture Capital Partner.

    In this webinar, Alexander Piskunov, a partner of a San-Francisco based VC fund Ruvento Ventures, will explore:
    - The potential of Digital Banking to innovate the stale customer experience in metropolitan regions and reach the previously unbanked population of rural regions in underdeveloped economies. An example of this is DoPay — a British cloud-based Fintech startup offering payroll services to the populations of India, Africa, and Asia.

    - The benefits of Cryptocurrencies as a more stable alternative to currencies, especially in countries with unsophisticated financial regulations. An example of this will be Ripio — a startup helping the Latin American merchants to process international transactions.

    - Why the accurate identification of customer niche, regulatory compliance, and a customer-centric approach to solution development are crucial for the long-term success of a Fintech startup.

    - How a fintech startup founder can identify the smartest money, outlining the cases of Y-Combinator, Fintech Innovation Lab, and Plug-and-Play as early-stage acceleration options.

    This webinar will be interesting for venture capital firms across the US and Europe who are interested in expanding their portfolio to encompass Fintech from the developing countries in Latin America, Africa, and South-East Asia.

    Alexander Piskunov is a partner of a San-Francisco based VC fund Ruvento Ventures (http://www.ruvento.com), specialising on AI, robotics and mobility investments and being responsible for portfolio development and fundraising from corporations. Previously, Alexander has studied finance at Cambridge, worked in tech-focused IB and cross-border PE funds in Europe and Russia

    With sensitive data residing everywhere, organizations becoming more mobile, and the breach epidemic growing, the need for advanced data privacy and security solutions has become even more critical. French regulators cited GDPR in fining Google $57 million and the U.K.'s Information Commissioner's Office is seeking a $230 million fine against British Airways and seeking $124 million from Marriott. Facebook is setting aside $3 billion to cover the costs of a privacy investigation launched by US regulators.

    This session will take a practical approach to address guidance and standards from the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC), EU GDPR, California CCPA, NIST Risk Management Framework, COBIT and the ISO 31000 Risk management Principles and Guidelines.

    Learn how new data privacy and security techniques can help with compliance and data breaches, on-premises, and in public and private clouds.
