    Driving post-trade efficiencies
    Experts from The Realization Group, EuroCCP, and BT Radianz Recorded: Feb 25 2020 27 mins
    Although the post-trade ecosystem is seen as the ‘plumbing’ of financial services, mainly hidden but crucial, its role in ensuring the industry’s health made it key to global post-crisis regulatory reforms. Firms have now had to deal with over a decade of rapid regulatory changes and the huge operational costs these incur. At the same time, they’ve also been coming to terms with the realities of shrinking margins and the need to both increase efficiencies and work towards a more sustainable business model across the board.

    In this webinar, our experts discuss the key challenges facing the industry specifically focusing on data, regulation and technology and how firms are responding to these pressures and investing in technology to help drive their post-trade transformation.

    Pandemic Planning for Business Resiliency
    Stephen Head, CPA, CBCP, CISSP, Director, IT Risk Advisory Services & Jeffrey Butler, Director, Risk Advisory Services Recorded: Feb 19 2020 63 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.

    Contract Compliance: An Untapped Opportunity
    Shveta Agarwal, Contract Compliance Senior Audit Manager, US | Rob Brown, Director Supplier Services, The Coca-Cola Company Mar 12 2020 6:30 pm UTC 38 mins

    Financial Services, Fraud and the Future of Digital Onboarding
    Parker Crockford, Director of Policy & Strategic Accounts, Onfido Mar 17 2020 4:00 pm UTC 38 mins
    Identity theft is the fastest growing crime in the US. Globally, 1 in 60 online transactions are fraudulent. And if you don’t know who your customers are, you can’t onboard them to your platform.

    Though businesses are moving online, their identity verification and KYC processes haven’t. Instead, the old processes are being shoehorned into the digital age. So how can you update your onboarding for the digital age?

    Join this webinar with Onfido’s Parker Crockford to learn:

    What new CDD and KYC regulation means for user onboarding
    Why the SSN is no longer reliable – and what’s going to replace it
    How new technology like biometrics, AI and blockchain can help
  • The right climate for fixed income sustainability
    The right climate for fixed income sustainability
    Responsible Investor In partnership with FTSE Russell Mar 18 2020 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The sovereign debt market is one of the largest asset classes in the world, yet fixed income markets have typically lagged other asset classes in relation to ESG integration. As a result, sovereign debt investors are exposed to a range of climate change risks that are typically not well understood or incorporated into the investment process. Part of the challenge has been the lack of sustainable investment products and viable climate data across a number of areas. This unique webinar will address a number of issues for investors seeking to better integrate sustainability and climate risk considerations into their fixed income strategies:

    • Global emissions reduction trajectories by sector and country

    • The macroeconomic implications of climate change

    • How the FTSE World Government Bond Index (WGBI) is adjusted for climate risk

    • Updates on performance of the WGBI and the FTSE Climate Risk-Adjusted World Government Bond Index
  • Why should investors care about ocean health?
    Why should investors care about ocean health?
    Responsible Investor in partnership with Credit Suisse Mar 24 2020 12:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The ocean - or blue - economy is expected to grow at twice the rate of the mainstream economy by 2030, and the economic value of global ocean assets is estimated to already be at over US$ 24 trillion, making the Blue Economy the seventh-largest economy by GDP globally. However, with ocean health and impacts tightly linked to the threats of climate change and other anthropogenic threats, such as over-fishing, habitat destruction and pollution, a large amount of capital is at risk. Are the world's investors aware of ocean-related risks to their portfolios, and are they acting on the opportunities provided by this emerging investment topic?

    Discussing the findings of RI and Credit Suisse’s market-first research study “Investors and the Blue Economy”, this webinar investigates whether the conditions exist for private capital to flow towards a sustainable use of the ocean. And if not, what needs to change.

    FICO Webinar - What have been the IFRS9 learnings on models and operations?
    Bruce Curry, VP, EMEA Collections and Recovery, FICO & Daniel Hensel, Principal Consultant, FICO Analytic Consulting Mar 24 2020 2:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    IFRS 9 does not allow any tolerance for those not totally on top of avoidable losses. Whether true loss or through impairment, organisations need to really push their data science teams to address the customer in the round and provide those in collections and recovery with forensic-level insight on how customers arriving in collections need to be managed and what the outcomes are likely to be. Anything less and organisations face a risk of haemorrhaging customers and losses.
    Those organisations where Finance, Risk, IT and Operations are collaboratively joining the dots of multiple challenges, and working through how to put the required solutions into production, will soon see a clear competitive advantage.

    If you’re not there yet, it’s time to move faster. Merger and acquisition activity will increase over the next couple of years, and organisations need to decide if they want to be an acquirer or an attractive target.

    With the UN Secretary General’s ‘Decade of Action’ on the SDGs now underway, this webinar will consider approaches to leverage the stability and availability of Islamic finance to achieve more. The Islamic finance sector is booming. From a market of just US$200 billion in 2003, the sector is expected to grow to over US$4 trillion in assets by 2030. Much of these funds originate in the majority Islamic countries in the Arab region, yet the investments are global in scope and impact.

    As Islamic finance scales up through the next decade across regions, this unique webinar will assess opportunities to develop new ESG and SDG-aligned Islamic finance products across asset classes. Join us to hear from experts on Islamic finance and ESG investing across markets.

    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
