  • Who should setup access in the ERP (Financial Application)?
    Who should setup access in the ERP (Financial Application)?
    Donald E. Hester; Robert DeRoeck; Ron Puccinelli Recorded: May 16 2019 63 mins
    As an IT auditor for local governments, one of the most often asked I get during audits is who should setup user access in the financial application. There is a debate of whether it should be IT or finance staff that create accounts and setup access. As with any professional my answer is it depends. It depends upon other controls that might be in place. What I like to do with clients is walk them through the needs and risks to help them design and understand the process they come up with. Let’s walk thought the logic and see what might be the best answer for your organization. Plus, we will answer a question from a listener on hacking Instagram accounts.

  • Why data quality is integral to Pensions Dashboard success
    Why data quality is integral to Pensions Dashboard success
    Experian's: Mike Sheridan, Client Director, Wealth, Life & Pensions, and Mark Pearce, Strategic Business Development Director Recorded: May 15 2019 33 mins
    The introduction of the Pensions Dashboard presents a transformative opportunity for the pensions industry, driving greater public engagement and boosting long-term savings.



    To ensure success, it’s vital that from the outset users can easily validate themselves and only the correct data is shown to the correct person. Inaccurate data going into the dashboard will result in a poor outcome for customers, potential penalties for the providers, and customers will be unlikely to return to the dashboard as a result.



    Experian’s work with Pension Providers has shown data quality to be challenge for the industry. It’s essential Pension Providers tackle this challenge and focus on improving the quality of their customer data for the dashboard to be a success, and providers to reap the benefits.



    Join this webinar to hear from Experian pension specialists as they discuss:

    · Key takeaways from the DWP’s Feasibility Report

    · Data challenges facing pension organisations

    · Why data quality is key to Pension Dashboard success

    · What steps you can take to begin to address your data quality challenges

    Blended finance and the SDGs: examining how public and private capital can work together for positive societal and financial outcomes

    The OECD defines blended finance as “the strategic use of development finance for the mobilization of additional finance towards the SDGs in developing countries.”

    If achieving the SDGs requires a massive infrastructure build-out to provide clean water and sanitation (SDG6), affordable and clean energy (SDG7), and health centres and hospitals in urban and rural areas (SDG3), how can the blended finance of public and private money actually do this, and through what structures/terms?
    Expert speakers will present case studies on the integration of blended finance structures into existing investment strategies and explain how it can yield a positive return both for investors and communities.

    Digital, Data and Disintermediation: Modern Banking

    Technology and increasing competition have rendered the financial services sector very much under pressure. Banking is not what it used to be, and it’s becoming clear that new players are appearing by the minute, who will take a seemingly marginal share.

    However, these changes are not as bad as they seem. If we focus on the potential of Fintech disintermediation, digital transformation, data proliferation, it’s easy to see that the industry is ripe for disruption.

    Future growth and success belong to those institutions who align on strategy to marshal these forces to build and retain market share through superior products, service and customer outcomes.

    Banking and Financial Services Industry leaders must now look to push the boundaries of innovation even further and question exactly how the implementation of emerging technology enablers can help them to truly redefine the customer experience.

    In this webinar, Jon Deutsch, from Information Builders; and Dave Birch, Global Ambassador at Consult Hyperion, will tackle these issues in-depth to provide a technology insight into the what these changes entail, and how the business models are changing.

    The decision to keep the reporting in house versus delegation will depend on various factors like, type of the firm, size of the firm, number of SFTs traded and firm’s view towards data security. Risk concerns will play an important role considering the sensitive information that is required to be transmitted in a delegation scenario.

    In this webinar, we'll be discussing some of the key factors, challenges and critical issues as well as 'pros and cons' around delegated reporting.

    Reconciling Low Carbon and Multifactor Investment
    Responsible Investor Jun 17 2019 1:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Low-carbon and multifactor investing have registered rapid growth in recent years but their combination in a single strategy represents a challenge as popular factors tilt portfolios towards carbon-related assets and carbon-intensive activities. This webinar introduces a portfolio construction that is consistent with the support of the transition to a low carbon economy, materially reduces exposure to transition risks and protects scientifically validated sources of financial performance.

    - One ESG incorporation philosophy protecting against greenwashing and datamining
    - Two decarbonisation approaches incentivising the transition and reducing asset stranding and carbon intensity risks
    - Three construction steps delivering Low Carbon multi-smart factor indices with high resilience to transition risks and outperformance relative to market indices

    Who is it for:
    - Ethical and socially responsible investors who wish to dissociate from companies incompatible with the transition to a low carbon economy and further promote the transition by reorienting their investments towards less carbon-intensive activities and companies
    - Any investor wishing to combine the benefits of multifactor investment strategies with ambitious mitigation of Climate Change risks.

    SFTR Data Preparation, Enrichment and Interoperability

    Given the very manual nature of workflows used for security financing transactions in general and security lending transaction and given the level of detail being required to be reported under SFTR many firms will struggle to obtain the data points needed for reporting. Service providers are offering data enrichment services to help clients navigate the reportable data points?

    In recent times, AI has earned reputation of a superhero that can solve business problems that cannot be addressed by traditional technologies. However, according to an MIT SLOAN and BCG report, on the ground only 1 in 20 companies have been able to extensively utilize AI in their business. The huge gap between the expectation and actual delivery is due to a wide variety of challenges and concerns that enterprises face before a model can be deployed into production.

    In this webinar, Ashish Khandelwal from EdgeVerve, an Infosys product subsidiary, and Nate Spiegel from Citizens Bank share their thoughts on the need for a Machine Learning based debt collection strategy and practical solutions to problems around auditability of a Machine Learning models, time to value, complex skill requirements and continuous monitoring of value delivered after the model is successfully deployed.

    How will investors respond to green fiscal policy and a new wave of central bank action on climate targets? Join us to find out.

    Following the G20 Osaka Summit, RI is bringing together global central banking leaders and investment banking macroeconomists to consider how ESG and climate risk integration into central banking and monetary policy across G20 member states could influence the investment decision-making of global investors.

    As fiscal policy makers and macroprudential regulators within the Network for Greening the Financial System get down to business, investors are waking up to the potential for climate-aligned monetary policy that could nudge economies towards alignment with the 2 degree targets agreed upon in the Paris Agreement.

    From the integration of climate risk management into the work of supervisory authorities to the incorporation of sustainability criteria into central banks’ portfolio management functions for the world’s largest treasuries, many G20 central banks are moving faster than the investment community?

    Turning the risk of system collapse into an investable opportunity

    Join us on this webinar to find out how investors are assessing ocean risks like acidification, biodiversity loss, and plastics pollution, and how leaders plan to align their portfolios with principles for a sustainable blue economy. Ahead of G20 and G7 meetings this summer, it is an important time for investors to discuss tools for mobilising private capital to support a sustainable, climate-secure Blue Economy. Speakers will also consider approaches to modelling the investment implications of the phase-out of fossil fuel-based plastics and other unsustainable activities.

    The transition from a conventional, extraction-focused ocean economy to a sustainable, climate-secure Blue Economy is a tremendous economic and investment opportunity for all investors. This unique webinar will bring together leading investors to debate the risks and opportunities for profiting from ocean resources in a sustainable manner while unlocking long-term value into the future.
