    The Analytics and AI Approach to the Customer Experience
    Melanie Turek VP of Research and Fellow, Connected Work, Frost & Sullivan Jun 9 2020 1:00 am UTC 35 mins
    With the rise of mobile and social technologies, customers are more knowledgeable and empowered than ever before. Their ability to access and share information gives them enormous control—and they know it.

    As a result, they expect data-driven, personalized interactions at every stage of the customer experience. Frost & Sullivan research shows that one of the clearest trends in customer engagement is the shift from traditional to digital interactions. Buyers like self-service, automated channels because they want easy access to information, on their time line, from anywhere. At the same time, agents want to discard the routine tasks that lower job satisfaction and lead to boredom and churn.

    AI and ML help companies leverage real-time and historical information to deliver a contextual, relevant and highly personal customer experience while improving agent morale. This webinar will show you how.
  • Data and Machine Learning in Financial Fraud Prevention
    Data and Machine Learning in Financial Fraud Prevention
    Kayla Hartman, Data Analyst, Alloy Jun 9 2020 3:00 am UTC 34 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.

    SDG Credits - winning by not losing?
    Guido Moret, Head of Sustainability Integration Credits & Erik Keller, Client Portfolio Manager Global Credits Jun 9 2020 8:00 am UTC 45 mins
    A unique screening approach developed by Robeco in 2018 enables us to invest in the credits of companies that can contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Last year, our analysis showed that sectors that were positively aligned with the SDGs had a lower credit risk. Furthermore, sectors with a positive or neutral SDG rating over a five-year period had a superior risk/return relationship compared to those with negative SDG scores.
    In our latest webinar, Guido Moret, Head of ESG Integration for Credits, and Erik Keller, Senior Client Portfolio Manager for Global SDG Credits, will outline the contribution that this SDG measurement framework has made to performance, especially in the wake of the Covid-19 sell-off. They will discuss whether any sector biases have emerged compared to mainstream strategies, and what can we expect going forward in terms of returns.
    Our interactive live webinar format allows you to connect with the presenters, along with their presentations, and ask questions afterwards. We focus on one topic – in this case, SDG Credits – with a full Q&A. So, don't miss your chance to get the inside story and expert view on how credits investing is really playing out during a crisis!
