  • Pandemic Planning for Business Resiliency
    Pandemic Planning for Business Resiliency
    Stephen Head, CPA, CBCP, CISSP, Director, IT Risk Advisory Services & Jeffrey Butler, Director, Risk Advisory Services Feb 19 2020 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Managing operational resilience in today’s digital environment is extremely challenging. But what happens when the threat is not a computer virus, but a biological one causing much of your workforce to call in sick, either because they are infected or because they are afraid to come in to work. In response to the potential for a widespread pandemic, many organizations are working to create a plan for how essential business processes can be sustained in the face of a pandemic. Proactively dealing with the potential threat of a pandemic increases the organization’s awareness of the potential impacts and costs, and enables them to take actions that reduce the overall risk, minimize the impact of a pandemic on essential operations, and ensure the continuity of essential services.
    This webinar will provide a high-level overview of the impact of a pandemic and explore the following:
    •How past pandemics provide us with a baseline for understanding the potential impact on an organization
    •Which elements of business continuity planning are most applicable to pandemic planning
    •Which elements of pandemic planning differ from traditional business continuity planning
    •Estimating the impact of a pandemic on your supply chain and service providers
    •How to determine your organization's readiness to continue essential operations during a pandemic
    •Ways to assess your current and future organizational exposure under different scenarios
    •Who should be involved (internal and external) in pandemic planning
    •What are some practical steps to begin implementing pandemic planning in your organization
    Whether or not you have a formal pandemic plan, this session will provide practical advice on what is involved in pandemic planning, how to incorporate it in your organization’s overall business continuity management efforts, and how pandemic planning can improve your organization’s ability to continue to operate during such a crisis.

  • Growth Bubble - Is It 2000 All Over Again?
    Growth Bubble - Is It 2000 All Over Again?
    David Keir and Graham Campbell Recorded: Feb 11 2020 25 mins
    "We have spoken at length over the past 12 months on valuation anomalies, where share prices appeared to diverge from the underlying prospects for a business.  We highlighted the ratings of the so-called quality shares or the “bond proxies” which appeared at odds with company fundamentals.  The other major anomaly, in our view has been the outperformance of the US market pre-dominantly led by the FAANG shares – Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix and Google.  The scale of relative outperformance has reached levels that appear to us as being within ‘bubble territory’.
     
    It is noteworthy that the bubble is being inflated by the largest shares in the biggest and most liquid stock market in the world.  We have seen this movie before, and it didn’t end well.  
     
    The fund, which is made up of well-known global leading businesses, remains very cheap – indeed we consider many of our holdings to be materially undervalued.  The underlying portfolio trades on 11.3X Year 1 PER and yields 4.8%.  The low valuation combined with underlying dividend growth on a high starting yield should deliver good performance over time."

    Challenging and new data areas the “S” and the “G”: ESG Data Part 3
    Responsible Investor Recorded: Jan 23 2020 73 mins
    The third webinar in this series will focus on how corporate data collection metrics, inclusions and exclusions, affect the weighting of governance and social indicators used by investors in determining the market value of a company.

    Questions for discussion may include:

    How are companies “S” and “G” data determined by investors when specific metrics are not available, comparable or consistent? What role can investors play in ensuring transparency through their engagement strategies?

    What are the challenges companies face generally and particularly in responding to new legislation requiring them to update their data identification and collection processes?

    How can companies improve the communication of their corporate governance structures, policies, and business practices to investor audiences?

  • 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 Recorded: Jan 22 2020 33 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

    You Bought into Cyber & Robotics – Now is the Time to Invest in the Cloud
    HANetf and Anthony Ginsberg, Founder, GinsGlobal Investment Management Feb 26 2020 4:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    The growth in reliance on the Cloud, is one of the biggest megatrends that is going to define our lives in the next 20 years. The cloud computing industry continues to expand rapidly as more businesses continue to shift their physical, on-premise infrastructure over to the Cloud to reap the many benefits, and while it is not a new technology, businesses are redistributing existing IT expenditures over to the Cloud. What’s more Cloud revenues are predicted to grow at 16% annually outperforming both the Robotics and Cybersecurity sectors.

    In this webinar, we discuss the following:

    • The fundamentals behind Cloud and why analysts are upbeat on the future growth potential of the Cloud

    • The megatrends driving the demand and growth of the Cloud

    • Cloud Computing vs Robotics and Cyber Security – a comparison

    • The companies that are dominating the Cloud space?

    • How can European investors gain exposure to this generationally important theme?

The gold ETC will become The Royal Mint’s first listed financial product and will launch via HANetf’s unique white-label platform.

    In this webinar, we will cover the reasons The Royal Mint is moving into this market and how this milestone moment is reinventing what it means to be a Mint in the modern age. We will also introduce The Royal Mint Physical Gold Securities ETC (RMAU), and hone in on its unique characteristic of storing all physical gold in The Royal Mint’s vault – one of the UK’s most secure sites.

    Seit über einem Jahrtausend steht der Name The Royal Mint für Edelmetalle und Edelmetallbarren. Das Unternehmen war der offizielle Anbieter von Münzen für Großbritannien und hat sich zur weltweit größten Export-Münzstätte entwickelt. The Royal Mint blickt auf eine lange Geschichte aus Tradition und Fachkenntnissen im Bereich Münzen zurück und wird in Zusammenarbeit mit HANetf die erste souveräne Münzstätte in Europa sein, die einen börsengehandelten, physisch hinterlegten Gold ETC auf den Markt bringt. Dadurch möchten wir sicherheitsbewussten Gold-Anlegern eine neue, innovative Alternative anbieten zu bestehenden Produkten. Der ETC ist das erste börsengelistete Finanzprodukt von The Royal Mint und wird emittiert durch HANetfs neue White-Label ETC Plattform.

    In diesem Webinar werden wir die Gründe erläutern, warum The Royal Mint in diesen Markt eintritt und wie dieser Meilenstein die Bedeutung einer Münzstätte im 21. Jahrhundert neu definieren kann. Wir gehen außerdem auf den Royal Mint Physical Gold ETC (RMAU) ein und seine einzigartige Eigenschaft, das gesamte physische Gold im Tresor von The Royal Mint zu lagern - einer der sichersten Standorte Großbritanniens.

    Corporate Secretary Webinar – Ensuring efficient global entity management
    Corporate Secretary and CT Corporation Mar 11 2020 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    In-house legal teams are being asked to do increasingly more for their companies – often without additional resources. These growing workloads are in many cases a result of boards increasingly turning to general counsel for guidance and insight on risk mitigation and strategy. They in turn must find the most efficient and cost-effective ways of tackling the demands they face.

    Global entity management is a prime example of an important area where general counsel and their teams need to – and can – find ways to ensure maximum efficiency while also ensuring their companies are complying with an increasingly complex set of global regulations.

    Boosting the value delivered from your Contract Audit Program

    Traditionally, supplier contract audits have principally focused on finding past billings errors and working to recover those overbillings. However, as organizations gain a more sophisticated appreciation for the deep intelligence gained through contract audits, they are now demanding new strategies that are designed to locate errors sooner and prevent the same mistakes from being repeated. Historical recoveries, while still a desired outcome where they exist, are seen as a byproduct of the central objective, fixing problems that return even more significant value through recurring future cost savings.

    In this webinar, PRGX contract audit experts Jon Daniells and Sara Clark will recommend strategies for enhancing the value of your organization’s supplier audit program, while outlining the steps to help you recover lost profits sooner. Key takeaways from this webinar include:

    - Pathway to prevention: Learn the broad spectrum of where overpayment problems originate and how best to identify and fix the root causes

    - Supercharging your results: How evolving the maturity of your contract audit program will exponentially expand value to your company

    - From reactive to proactive: Key steps to building a program which identifies issues quicker, leading to immediate and sustained cost savings
