  • The Bitcoin Fork: What you need to know (Live Q&A)
    The Bitcoin Fork: What you need to know (Live Q&A) Ina Yulo (BrightTALK), Dr. Craig Wright (nChain), David Siegel (20|30). Jameson Lopp (BitGo) Recorded: Aug 16 2017 64 mins
    On August 1, news of a bitcoin "hard fork" broke the cryptocurrency world. Traders were flung into uncertainty and many started wondering about the new Bitcoin Cash and what it means for the market.

    Should you invest in Bitcoin Cash? Why fork Bitcoin rather than just using a pre-existing cryptocurrency? Will there be more drastic price changes in the different cryptocurrencies? Will the value of bitcoin be diluted? What comes next?

    Join this session where an expert panel of bitcoin investors, engineers and entrepreneurs will discuss what you need to know about the bitcoin fork, the current situation of the market, the impacts of the hard fork, and their predictions for the future.

    They will also take audience questions live so make sure to tune in and have your questions ready.

    Moderator: Ina Yulo, Senior Content Strategy Manager at BrightTALK

    Panelists:
    David Siegel, Blockchain and decentralization expert at 20|30

  • Data Analytics in Financial Services: Identifying obstacles and key issues
    Data Analytics in Financial Services: Identifying obstacles and key issues Alex Kwiatkowski (Finastra), Peter Jackson (Southern Water), Jessica Holzbach (Penta) Recorded: Jul 20 2017 61 mins
    In an increasingly digitalised world, the value of information grows ever higher. Winning organisations – whether in financial services or any other vertical sector – will be those who can harness the power of data analytics to develop microscopic levels of insight and foresight into customer behaviours and operational activities in order to make progressive improvements on a continuous basis. Product development informed by factual evidence rather than educated guesswork, or real-time risk management based on a hyper-accurate picture of exposures, bring significant internal and external benefits.

    However, while banks want to get closer to their customers, is the feeling mutual? Data privacy is a very sensitive issue, and the perception of what constitutes intrusion will likely vary between individuals. Institutions, therefore, need to walk a fine line between what’s genuinely useful and what’s genuinely creepy.

    During this webinar, a panel of respected subject matter experts will discuss and dissect the key issues related to the widespread use of data analytics in financial services, identifying the obstacles which need to be overcome and the enablers that will drive FS forward successfully.

  • Post-Modern Porfolio Theory with David Siegel
    Post-Modern Porfolio Theory with David Siegel David Siegel Recorded: Jul 12 2017 49 mins
    A smart portfolio can mean the difference between a comfortable life and a constant struggle. Most people make poor, emotionally based investment decisions with many biases. Even investing professionals who studied Modern Portfolio Theory did not help their clients in the Global Financial Crisis.

    In fact, when I ask professional investment advisors if they would hire themselves if they had $100 million in the bank, they all say of course not. Most pundits, from celebrity investment gurus to leading academics, have simply been wrong about markets and their predictability.

    We are entering a new era of machine trading, where the average person has no chance to systematically outperform the markets. Learn about post-modern portfolio theory with David Siegel and start building a smart portfolio today.

  • The Value of Value investing!
    The Value of Value investing! Derek Bradley, Panacea Adviser, Stephen Hunter & David Thomas, Seneca Investment Managers Recorded: Jul 12 2017 31 mins
    Panacea Adviser has teamed up with BrightTalk and Seneca Investment Managers for a free webcast to support and educate Financial Advisers.

    You could argue that investing in unappreciated companies with quality balance sheets and benefitting from good yield and growth as the stock value returns should never be out of style.

    Why though should a value approach only be applied to equity and not across a whole range of invested assets?

    Value investing by its very nature should mean never buying at the top of the market and constantly researching to find the value in companies and assets that other investors may not yet see.

    There are a number of equity “value” investment approaches in the market but few offering a Multi-Asset Value approach…

    In this 30 minute Webinar, Stephen Hunter and Peter Elston of Seneca Investment Managers discuss why you shouldn’t restrict good thinking to just one asset class!

    This in-depth, thought provoking session will be of real value to you and your firm and not one to be missed!
