This market, which has seen incredibly robust activity this past year, has continued to attract issuers across a myriad of industries and from multiple worldwide jurisdictions.

In this webinar, speakers will discuss:

•Documentation requirements for traditional and structured transactions;
•Financial covenants, MFLs and model form provisions;
•New issuers using the market (social housing trusts, universities, investment trusts, etc);

Banks, credit unions and insurance companies may have differing business models, but they all have a common goal: better conversion and retention rates.
Fortunately, better customer onboarding usually translates to better conversion and retention. For this reason, organizations continue to invest in digital technologies to streamline operations and eliminate time-consuming online interactions in areas such as new account opening, loan origination and policy applications.
Those first information-intensive interactions, of course, are the most critical: you usually only get once chance to win a new customer’s business. But winning is only part of the equation. What if you could win—and wow—customers from those first moments and keep them engaged throughout the onboarding process?
Mark your calendars for this upcoming webinar, where industry experts will share six best practices to help your organization win and wow customers:
• Easy—Enable instant image and data capture via web and mobile technology
• Accurate—Extract data from pictures of physical documents without error-prone manual entry
• Automated—Invest in workflow tools to automate and track completion of process steps
• Visible—Empower staff and customers with process transparency and timely communication
• Consistent—Ensure data is complete and integrated across internal systems
• Efficient—Meet expectations for speed, while effectively managing regulatory risks
Speakers will include:
•Sheryl Kingstone, Director, 451 Research
•Sarah Johnson, Industry Solutions Architect, Kofax
•Jim Marous, Owner and Publisher, Digital Banking Report

Managing operational resilience in today’s digital environment is extremely challenging, whether your organization is public, private or governmental. In response to the continued growth of cyber-attacks, many organizations have decided it’s time to focus more of their efforts on cyber resiliency. This approach to proactively dealing with the potential outcome of cyber-attacks increases the organization’s awareness of the potential impacts and costs, and enables them to take actions that reduce the overall risk to the organization, minimize the impact of cyber-attacks, and more predictably ensure the continuity of essential services.
This webinar will provide a high-level overview of cyber resiliency and explore the following aspects of cyber resiliency:
• Where cyber resiliency differs from traditional business continuity management

• What are some practice steps to begin implementing a cyber resiliency program
Whether or not you have embraced a formal cyber resiliency program, this session will provide some practical advice on what cyber resiliency is, how to incorporate it in your organization’s overall business continuity management efforts, and what cyber resiliency can mean to improving your organization’s ability to withstand a cyber attack.

Forget Oracle, IBM or any of the other big-name, publicly traded acquirers that – until now --have always set the tone in the tech M&A market.

This is the first time in the history of the multibillion-dollar tech M&A market that financial acquirers have been busier than these strategic acquirers. To understand how the ever-growing influence of buyout shops is reshaping the tech industry, join 451 Research for an hour-long webinar on Thursday, Sept. 7 2017.

The heightened expectations of today’s consumers are forcing retailers to revamp their supply chains to make them more efficient, deliver greater demand responsiveness and ensure the optimal placement of inventory in the supply chain. An optimized supply chain brings multiple benefits in terms of improved customer service and logistics cost, greater flexibility in matching demand and supply, and it enables retailers to improve the accuracy of their forecasts.
In this webinar we explain how to optimize retail supply chains to better satisfy customer demands and boost business efficiency while reducing costs. We look in particular at the example of India, where the recent introduction of Goods and Sales Tax will bring major changes in the way procurement, warehousing and transportation are carried out. We describe and demonstrate some of the advanced supply chain management capabilities Openbravo has added to its product suite to help retailers revamp their supply chains and so improve competitiveness.

IT planners have far more options as to where to run their workloads than ever before. On-premises data centers, co-location facilities and managed services providers are now joined by hybrid multi-clouds – a combination of Software-, Infrastructure- and Platform-as-a-Service (SaaS, IaaS, and PaaS) execution venues. All have unique operational, performance and economic characteristics that need to be considered when deploying workloads.

•The market and technology trends that influence workload, data center and cloud strategy
•How to evaluate the characteristics of various workloads and execution venues
•How to manage workloads across on-premises and off-premises ecosystems
Attendees will learn how to formulate an IT strategy that can be used to guide the decision criteria needed for placing workloads on their best execution venues, and enable the migration and ongoing management of workloads across a hybrid multi-cloud enterprise architecture.

Join our guest, Dr. Ted Marra as he introduces his new leadership course in Global Risk Academy.
During the webinar we will cover:
How does a truly strategic organization think? What is strategic thinking versus strategic planning? What are the vital few factors that will determine your organisation’s long-term success or failure and are they on your radar screen?
Who should attend.
People with 10 years management experience minimum up to and including C-Level in all disciplines responsible for strategic decisions or large scale operational issues - so they have large budget and many people reporting to them.
Managers and senior management from all areas of the organisation having responsibility for planning and achievement of key business objectives.
Why you should attend.
- Reflect on how you got where you are as an organisation;
- What factors were critical to your success? What factors were the basis for your success?
- What held you back – prevented you from being even more successful?
- What could you have done differently
Understand what are the most critical factors that will better ensure your organisation is a “winner” in the future (e.g., next 3-5 years).
Find out which ones you may be missing and what to do about it before it’s too late and you become just an “average or good” organisation when, with a little effort and the right strategic thinking and creativity, you could take the organisation to the next level of performance and move toward “greatness”.
How to build exceptional stakeholder relationships and why doing this is critical in especially in turbulent times.
The latest EU Anti-Money Laundering directive will significantly increase the frequency with which financial service providers need to conduct ‘Know Your Customer’ (KYC) checks. To maximise the effectiveness of digital transformation initiatives, financial services and other regulated industries must find effective digital identity verification solutions.
Current methods for identity verification checks place an enormous cost burden on banks, payments processors, and lenders, as most methods rely heavily on manual processes. Furthermore, these processes are cumbersome for users, driving away potential customers.
Figuring out how to balance the competing needs of compliance and costs against the expectations of today’s digital native users is key to any financial service provider looking to win and retain new customers.
