  • The Critical Importance of Security and Compliance in the Digital Payments World
    The Critical Importance of Security and Compliance in the Digital Payments World
    Haris Sethi, Senior Systems Engineer, Utimaco Recorded: May 23 2019 45 mins
    In today’s world where cashless payments are surpassing cash transactions, organizations are under pressure to make payment and data security their number one priority. Sensitive transactional payment data is a hot commodity on the dark web and hackers are always on the lookout for vulnerabilities that serve as easy targets for cyber attacks. Compromised data means compromised trust, which is why data security is so critical to business success.

    Today, organizations are faced with the challenge of not just protecting customer data, but also adhering to strict data security regulations and compliance standards. Regulatory and standards bodies, along with governments are regularly publishing new requirements compelling organizations to step up their efforts in securing sensitive data. A recent example of this would be the new “key bundling” requirement released by the PCI Security Council requiring organizations to increase security for encrypted keys. Many organizations in the payments ecosystem understand that security and compliance should go hand in hand, but struggle to address both in an effective and cost-efficient way.

    Register for this Utimaco webinar to learn about:

    •The threats and challenges associated with payment data security
    •Legacy vs New Payment use cases and the associated security implications
    •Evolving payment data security regulations (laws) and standard – PCI DSS, PCI HSM, PCI Keyblocks, PSD2
    •How to be secure while meeting compliance

    Responsible Investor Recorded: Apr 30 2019 64 mins
    Blended finance and the SDGs: examining how public and private capital can work together for positive societal and financial outcomes

    The OECD defines blended finance as “the strategic use of development finance for the mobilization of additional finance towards the SDGs in developing countries.”
    This RI webinar will drill down into key areas of the blended finance discussion.
    If achieving the SDGs requires a massive infrastructure build-out to provide clean water and sanitation (SDG6), affordable and clean energy (SDG7), and health centres and hospitals in urban and rural areas (SDG3), how can the blended finance of public and private money actually do this, and through what structures/terms?
    Expert speakers will present case studies on the integration of blended finance structures into existing investment strategies and explain how it can yield a positive return both for investors and communities.

Our fuel cards enable over 50,000 UK businesses to keep their 1.5 million drivers on the road: making deliveries, taking orders, meeting clients and colleagues, giving presentations, and all the other activities that are essential to the success of every business.

    Every time one of our fuel cards is used, it gives our customers valuable information about each journey. And it gives us information that is unattainable elsewhere about fleets and fuel prices, outside influencing factors, journeys and driver behaviour. In short, it helps us to know the fuel market inside out. This focus has given us an unparalleled knowledge, which you could be using in your own business.

  • IR Magazine & Corporate Secretary Webinar – ESG for investor relations officers
    IR Magazine & Corporate Secretary Webinar – ESG for investor relations officers
    IR Magazine, Corporate Secretary and S&P Global Recorded: Apr 23 2019 56 mins
    Investor interest in ESG issues continues to grow. Evidence is mounting that environmental and social issues can be financially material to business performance. Companies are responding to these market signals, with more than 85 percent of S&P 500 companies now reporting on their ESG and sustainability performance in some form.

    Although climate risk and diversity continue to be top issues of interest to investors, there are hundreds of ESG metrics that companies are being scored on. While ESG roadshows may be the norm in Europe, they are just starting to gain traction with US companies. How should investor relations officers (IROs) prepare for this new wave of investor appetite?

    •Why do IROs need to create a compelling narrative on ESG performance that is aligned with the business strategy, and what should that narrative include?
    •Why should IROs prioritize and focus on the most material ESG issues to the business, and how do you determine what those are?
    •What are some best practice examples of strategies and tactics that leading companies are using to build capacity within IR and corporate governance departments to communicate with investors on ESG issues?
    •How are companies engaging with investors on ESG issues to competitively differentiate business performance on ESG risk management and governance

    Digital, Data and Disintermediation: Modern Banking
    Information Builders and FinTech Futures Recorded: Apr 16 2019 46 mins
    Technology and increasing competition have rendered the financial services sector very much under pressure. Banking is not what it used to be, and it’s becoming clear that new players are appearing by the minute, who will take a seemingly marginal share.

    However, these changes are not as bad as they seem. If we focus on the potential of Fintech disintermediation, digital transformation, data proliferation, it’s easy to see that the industry is ripe for disruption.

    Future growth and success belong to those institutions who align on strategy to marshal these forces to build and retain market share through superior products, service and customer outcomes.

    Banking and Financial Services Industry leaders must now look to push the boundaries of innovation even further and question exactly how the implementation of emerging technology enablers can help them to truly redefine the customer experience.

    In this webinar, Jon Deutsch, from Information Builders; and Dave Birch, Global Ambassador at Consult Hyperion, will tackle these issues in-depth to provide a technology insight into the what these changes entail, and how the business models are changing.
  • TB Saracen UK Income Fund: Value in a Changing World
    TB Saracen UK Income Fund: Value in a Changing World
    Scott McKenzie May 28 2019 9:00 am UTC 45 mins
    For decades the UK Equity Income sector has been the foundation of many UK investor portfolios 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 at a time when investors have prized growth over value and are shunning UK equities in the light of the chaos that is Brexit.

    When we launched the TB Saracen UK Income fund in April 2015 we were determined to take a different approach in the light of such challenges.
    We believe that valuation still matters and that equity income funds should provide investors with a high and growing income.

    In this webcast we shall introduce the TB Saracen UK Income fund to a wider audience 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:
    - The outlook for UK dividend growth
    - Why value strategies are still relevant in a changing world
    - The importance of a focussed, ‘multicap’ approach

    Corporate Secretary and Nasdaq May 30 2019 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    One of a board’s key responsibilities is communicating to management and the company as a whole about strategy and where the organization is headed. It is also essential that members of the board – CEO, chair, committee heads and other directors – learn to communicate between themselves effectively.

    Governance teams spend a lot of time and effort helping deliver information to boards and keeping directors up to date on emerging risks, compliance requirements and other developments affecting the company. They also need to help ensure communications from and within the board are tailored properly and are delivered to the right people at the right time and in the right way.

    Our panel of experts will discuss issues including:

    •In what areas should the board focus its communications to management?
    •How can the board best frame and deliver its messages on strategy and other topics?
    •How can governance teams best manage and guide board communications?
    •What are best practices for communications within the board?
    •What mistakes should boards avoid making in delivering information to employees?

  • Reconciling Low Carbon and Multifactor Investment
    Reconciling Low Carbon and Multifactor Investment
    Responsible Investor Jun 17 2019 1:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Low-carbon and multifactor investing have registered rapid growth in recent years but their combination in a single strategy represents a challenge as popular factors tilt portfolios towards carbon-related assets and carbon-intensive activities. This webinar introduces a portfolio construction that is consistent with the support of the transition to a low carbon economy, materially reduces exposure to transition risks and protects scientifically validated sources of financial performance.

    - One ESG incorporation philosophy protecting against greenwashing and datamining
    - Two decarbonisation approaches incentivising the transition and reducing asset stranding and carbon intensity risks
    - Three construction steps delivering Low Carbon multi-smart factor indices with high resilience to transition risks and outperformance relative to market indices

    Who is it for:
    - Ethical and socially responsible investors who wish to dissociate from companies incompatible with the transition to a low carbon economy and further promote the transition by reorienting their investments towards less carbon-intensive activities and companies
    - Any investor wishing to combine the benefits of multifactor investment strategies with ambitious mitigation of Climate Change risks.

    How will investors respond to green fiscal policy and a new wave of central bank action on climate targets? Join us to find out.

    Following the G20 Osaka Summit, RI is bringing together global central banking leaders and investment banking macroeconomists to consider how ESG and climate risk integration into central banking and monetary policy across G20 member states could influence the investment decision-making of global investors.

    As fiscal policy makers and macroprudential regulators within the Network for Greening the Financial System get down to business, investors are waking up to the potential for climate-aligned monetary policy that could nudge economies towards alignment with the 2 degree targets agreed upon in the Paris Agreement.

    From the integration of climate risk management into the work of supervisory authorities to the incorporation of sustainability criteria into central banks’ portfolio management functions for the world’s largest treasuries, many G20 central banks are moving faster than the investment community?

    Turning the risk of system collapse into an investable opportunity

    Join us on this webinar to find out how investors are assessing ocean risks like acidification, biodiversity loss, and plastics pollution, and how leaders plan to align their portfolios with principles for a sustainable blue economy. Ahead of G20 and G7 meetings this summer, it is an important time for investors to discuss tools for mobilising private capital to support a sustainable, climate-secure Blue Economy.

    The transition from a conventional, extraction-focused ocean economy to a sustainable, climate-secure Blue Economy is a tremendous economic and investment opportunity for all investors. This unique webinar will bring together leading investors to debate the risks and opportunities for profiting from ocean resources in a sustainable manner while unlocking long-term value into the future.
