The EU Benchmark Regulation came into force in June 2016 and most of its provisions came into effect at the start of 2018. It establishes a new regime for the authorisation and supervision of administrators (including non-EU administrators) of financial benchmarks that are used in the EU. We will consider the likely impact of the Regulation in the EU financial markets and look in detail at certain issues raised by market participants including:
· Timetable for benchmark administrators to be authorised under the regulation and the extent to which administrators of pre-existing benchmarks can rely on 'grandfathering' relief up until 2020.
· What indices are within the scope of the Regulation and when will an index be regarded as 'available to the public'?
· What is meant by 'use' of a benchmark in the EU?
· Are there any regulatory obligations on entities that contribute benchmark data?
· What is the impact of Brexit on UK benchmark administrators?
Lending books are arguably where the rubber hits the road for originating sustainable projects, but how do banks and other lenders identify ESG risks in loan books, and stimulate opportunities to lend to sustainable projects?

Whether driven by PSD2 compliance, market demand for mobile apps, or fintech competition, open banking is becoming a top priority for financial businesses. Through exclusive research and customer successes, we determined that building a modern application architecture with APIs, microservices and strong authentication is a key success factor in this space. In fact, our latest report shows that fully digital banks enjoy an estimated 25% cost-to-income ratio, versus 60% for traditional institutions.
For this webcast, we assembled a panel that includes Mehdi Medjaoui, author of Banking APIs: State of the Market, along with experts in API and security capabilities, to introduce the elements of modern application architecture that all digital banking business leaders should know about – API management, microservices, strong authentication and risk-based security. You’ll learn about:
* The current state of open banking, and what your peers are doing
* How to invest in modern application architecture to improve your open banking projects
* How to align better with IT to accelerate your time-to-market

SWIFT remains a mission critical channel for all financial institutions. But the cost and complexity of operating SWIFT for top-tier banks has increased substantially since the introduction of SWIFT’s CSP programme. As payments and connectivity become increasingly commoditised for all financial institutions, banks are re-thinking how best to maintain secure, reliable and compliant SWIFT operations and back-office applications at the lowest cost.
To respond to our customers’ needs, equensWorldline has launched a new fully managed service to meet the needs of tier-1 banks that can no longer afford to invest in ageing infrastructure or meet increasingly stringent regulations and market practices.
Now, for the first time, outsourcing of SWIFT and other financial messaging channels is a realistic and attractive option for tier-1 banks that previously operated their SWIFT infrastructures in-house.
Commerzbank AG, a top SWIFT user, recognised the benefits and adopted the Next Generation Financial Messaging service from Worldline, an Atos Group Company. The service uses the BOX Messaging Hub from Intercope.
The webinar will give an overview of the:
Fundamental changes to SWIFT operations impacting Tier-1 banks
Changes to the regulatory environment including SWIFT’s CSP programme
The key financial benefits of using this managed service
Key benefits of a modern and high performance platform
Flexible customization to customer needs
Ease of integration to back-end applications

There has been a rise in the Nation State sponsored, backed, or directed cyber-attacks if not at least an awareness of such attacks. Whether it is a rise in the Nation State cyber-attacks or just the awareness of it, I think it is time to take a look at Nation States as a serious threat actor and start to look at what we know about them. Their motivation and capabilities differ from the traditional hackers and cybercriminals and as such may require a different response in mitigating threats.

A successful ESG stewardship strategy requires investors to proactively address ESG risks in their portfolios. Over the last three years, climate change has become a top ESG shareholder proposal issue. Many shareholder proponents encourage companies to align their reporting with the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures, set GHG emission reduction targets, conduct 2°C scenario analyses and disclose on climate impact. However, the percentage of companies providing such disclosures remains generally very low.
This webinar gives an overview of emerging climate change topics from the 2018 proxy season and how investors can proactively identify climate-related risks and opportunities in their portfolios.
- What are the takeaways from the 2018 proxy season and Climate Week NYC 2018?
- Are we any closer to meaningful scenario analysis?
- How is data developing to help investors capture physical climate risk?
- Where are we at with TCFD reporting?
- How important is collaboration on these issues, through things like ClimateAction100+?

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

Increasingly, financial services companies and retail banks are going digital -- not necessarily by choice -- but as a result of new competitive threats that include new challenger (digital) banks, upstart fintech companies, and even the likes of Amazon and Google.
Recent research suggests that retail banks now lose as many as 52% of potential customers at the on-boarding stage, an increase of 35% in the last two years. Much of this abandonment occurs during the identity verification process -- presumably because the enrollment process is too time-consuming, complicated, and taxing.
In this webinar, you'll discover some clever tips and tricks and best practices from Jumio, the global leader in online identity verification, including:
The importance of offering multiple channels for ID capture
The subtle art of messaging & its impact on conversions
The critical need to reduce the number of screens
Why you need a "yes" or a "no" verification decision....and not a "maybe"

Three years ago, the United Nations adopted the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a global call to action for positive change. Ever since, the global investment community has become increasingly eager to achieve some kind of “SDG alignment”.
Near the anniversary of the establishment of the SDGs, this RI/ISS-ESG webinar provides an overview of how impact investing connects to the SDGs, and how investors are measuring effectiveness.
- What drives investors to choose the SDGs as a framework for investing and how are they approaching this?
- What tools are available to identify and measure companies’ contributing to the SDGs? Should SDG investments be focusing on products & services or on companies’ operations?
- What are the challenges to investing in the SDGs? Are the SDG even investable in mainstream investment, given the fact that many of the SDGs and targeting problems in emerging markets that are probably rather solved by modest projects rather than large listed corporates?
- Is there a risk of SDG-washing and sticking SDG labels on existing mainstream investments? How can this be prevented?
Just 29% of UK employees work for firms that operate flexible working policies for all employees according to recent research commissioned by TeleWare.
This highlights the stark differences in how firms are creating workforces who can work flexibly in an increasingly mobile environment. One thing is certain, tools that enable employees to work wherever and whenever they want to are here to stay, but how firms deploy them could be the difference between success or failure.
Join us in the latest webinar in our mobility and productivity programme where we will share exclusive insight into mobile and flexible working practices.
Join our panel of experts to find out:
•The impact on businesses who fail to deliver changing flexible working expectations
•The technological advancements that are helping firms operate flexibly
•The benefits and the pitfalls of a more mobility enabled workforce
•The barriers to successful adoption and how you can overcome them.
