Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

As the Dust Settles after the Election

Steve Bee is a prominent pensions strategist. Aside from his role at a major life company, he contributes columns and cartoons for a number of industry publications. Steve is well known for his campaign to simplify the jargon that surrounds the world of pensions. In the same entertaining down-to-earth way, his presentations tackle head on what many seem to be ignoring. Half the workforce has no occupational pension. Even if we do make provision, there's no guarantee that it's safe. What of the employers that have changed their payouts from final salary to defined contributions? What of the 300,000 stakeholder pension schemes, which hardly anyone has joined? Steve Bee was named in Money Marketing's list of the most influential names in UK financial services. He tells audiences how it is, and how he sees the future.

  • The Four Pillars of Behavioral Finance: What Freud Could Teach Buffett Nov 6 2017 4:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Dr. Daniel Crosby, President at Nocturne Capital
    Although it is typically discussed in reference to managing client behavior, behavioral finance can also inform the way that we manage money and construct portfolios. By understanding the most common behavioral errors, we can begin to design investment processes that are robust to these errors. They are:

    Ego - the human tendency toward overconfidence
    Attention - our conflation of the lurid with the probable
    Emotion - our proneness to let affect drive risk perception
    Conservation - our asymmetric preferences for the status quo and gains relative to change and loss
  • The Most Important Year-End Questions for Investors Oct 19 2017 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Jeffrey A. Miller, PhD, President and Portfolio Manager, NewArc Investments, Inc.
    Analyzing the Combined Effects of the Business Cycle and the Policy Agenda

    The purpose of this BrightTALK webinar is to examine the two biggest issues facing investors in the remainder of 2017. While the analysis cannot escape some consideration of politics, it is not partisan. I am interested in policy effects on the market, not which leaders win or lose.

    Biggest Risk
    The biggest risk for the market is almost always a business cycle peak, the official definition of the start of a recession. What kind of notice will we have? What are the best indicators to watch?

    Some historical data will provide background. I will review the strengths and weaknesses of some popular indicators.

    Biggest Upside Chance
    A market-friendly policy environment would provide a healthy foundation for stocks, with plenty of upside. This should include the following:
    1. Resolution of the debt limit issue
    2. Key government funding decisions
    3. Tax reform
    4. Infrastructure improvements

    These need not be specific Trump Administration policies. Market-friendly probably requires bipartisan cooperation.

    Measuring the result
    Bot risks and rewards will be reflected in expected corporate earnings.

  • Emerging Markets - Time to Invest? Oct 19 2017 1:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Salman Ahmed, Chief Investment Strategist of Lombard Odier IM & Pav Sharma, Associate Director at ETF Securities
    Emerging Market (EM) debt currently represents a compelling opportunity for investors within the fixed income universe. Strengthening economies in many EM countries, rising growth forecasts and attractive prices puts EM investing on a much firmer footing for future growth.

    As emerging markets are a collection of very diverse economies, it follows that the impact of various risk scenarios will vary significantly from country to country. For investors considering EM exposure in their portfolio, doing so based on the quality of fundamentals is the intelligent choice.

    Join our webinar as we examine:

    - the latest emerging market trends
    - why risk-mitigation should be central when assessing each emerging market

  • How to tackle the challenges of a low return world Oct 18 2017 11:00 am UTC 45 mins
    James Hutton, Fund Manager, Sarasin
    The global growth rate has been slowing for some time, with demographics and productivity levels suggesting that this is likely to continue.

    · How phenomena like Brexit, recent natural disasters, and the North Korean tensions are effecting markets

    · The outlook for valuations and returns in the current investment environment

  • 2017 Q4 Market Update: Past Performance & Future Results Oct 17 2017 2:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Igor Tsukerman (President & Chief Investment Officer, Passed Pawn Advisors)
    The strong 2017 market performance year-to-date has caught most market observers and experts by surprise. Even as the volatility started to come back in Q3, the uptrend remains unbroken. Yet many questions remain. The Central Banks' "easy money", the geopolitical risks, the Trump economic agenda, the Brexit outcome -- and many others will likely shape the markets into Q4.

    Using ETFs as proxies, we will review what worked in Q3 and where to look for opportunities in Q4.
  • Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT): Emerging Trends and Real-world Cases Recorded: Oct 12 2017 64 mins
    Scott Riley, Tim Swanson, Sunny Aggarwal, Min Kim, Matthew Britton
    DLT has been heralded as the next great technology. But a ledger is a noun. It doesn't do anything. Libraries are full of books, but what makes a best seller? So too with DLT, the news wires are full of news on how DLT will change or markets but where are we now in terms of adoption and which use cases will get traction? Is DLT a supply chain innovation, a bit of enabling technology for cryptocurrencies or a revolution in payments and securities processing. What does it mean to Capital Markets?

    Presenters: Scott Riley (Kynetix), Tim Swanson (Post Oak Labs), Sunny Aggarwal (UBerkeley), Min Kim (DAYLI), Matthew Britton (BCS Consulting)

  • How Smart Contracts & Blockchain can co-exist with current legal concepts Recorded: Oct 11 2017 63 mins
    Lee Bacon, Nigel Brooke (Clyde & Co), Kevin Hobbs (Etherparty), Jimmy Nguyen (nChain(
    The title smart contracts is used to refer to a number of arrangements in which relationships are governed by a pre-determined digitalised arrangement, so that coded instructions execute on the occurrence of an event.

    These often use Blockchain or distributed ledger technology to record and execute transactions. In their purest sense, the code – once agreed – becomes self-executing and self-governing and thus (it is argued) replaces the need for a wider contract or checks and balances.

    Whilst their common name is arguably a misnomer (they are not necessarily contracts in the traditional legal sense), their implementation can enable transparency in supply chains and the reduction of frictional and intermediary costs.

    This panel will examine how the concepts of smart contracts, utilising blockchain technology, can co-exist with existing legal concepts to include a review of:

    · The distinction between traditional legal prose/code and programming code.

    · Application of traditional principles (to include the three f-words: frustration, fraud and force majeure)

    · The allocation of responsibility and liability.

    · Practical steps and perspectives on the future.
  • Is code the new law? Regulation, Legality and Smart Contracts Recorded: Oct 11 2017 61 mins
    Ravikant Agrawal (Cognizant), Laurence Kirk (Extropy), Arnab Naskar (Innovationsforum), Jonathan Galea (Bitmalta)
    Regulation has been considered an obstacle when it comes to the adoption of blockchain technology. But many have taken on the challenge and have actively started to take blockchain and DLT as both a challenge and an opportunity.

    Join this panel where we will discuss:

    -ICOs, Self regulation of ICO, status of tokens in an ICO
    -How blockchain will affect existing market regulations
    -Which new regulations can we expect to respond to the ecosystem that blockchain has created?
    -How would the governance structure be determined?
    -How can the obstacle of a cross-border environment be tackled?
  • Mattereum - Pragmatic Smart Ledgers Without The Lawyers Recorded: Oct 11 2017 52 mins
    Professor Michael Mainelli, Co-founder of Z/Yen
    Much has been written about the power and scope of Smart Ledgers and Mutual Distributed Ledgers (MDLs, aka blockchains). Amidst the rush to find new applications for this versatile, ‘trustless’ technology, people overlook the challenge of governing Smart Ledger networks. Governance provides the mechanisms required to balance accountability of the governing body and its duty of meeting the specific objectives of the organisation.

    Effective governance of Smart Ledgers should answer four critical questions - How are rules created for the ledger and who oversees their application? What happens in the case of dispute? Who is allowed to change the software application and the data? How are security, risk and performance managed and reported?

    One approach is to embed these questions in existing legal structures, another to try to remain outside, but a third is to explore the appropriate role of arbitration, mediation, and expert determination, as far as possible avoiding enmeshing novel identity, document, and agreement exchanges within traditional legal structures.

    In this webinar, Professor Michael Mainelli will share research from the Mattereum initiative as well as Long Finance research sponsored by the Cardano Foundation. He will conclude that, while there is nothing new under the sun, Smart Ledgers may need to shift the balance of power from law, to code, to human wisdom.
