  • Now is the Time for Munis
    Now is the Time for Munis Clark Wagner, CIO and Portfolio Manager, First Investors Funds Recorded: May 24 2017 28 mins
    With President Trump's push to slash tax rates on both corporations and high-income individuals, many of your clients may think they don’t need municipal bonds in their investment portfolios anymore. But such thinking belies an understanding of why tax-exempt municipal bonds make sense in any environment.

    Reading past the headlines shows that the tax reforms outlined by the administration so far will likely have little impact on securities issued by state and local governments. The proposal to phase out most deductions might actually boost demand for tax-free munis in states with high taxes. And even if the top rate is cut to 35%, clients can still benefit from reducing their overall tax bill.

    Join Clark Wagner, CIO and Portfolio Manager, in understanding what’s going on in the municipal bond market and why the tax advantages they offer remain valuable, particularly for high-net-worth clients.

    During the webcast, Mr. Wagner, will discuss:

    • Macroeconomic issues and its effects on tax-exempt municipal bonds
    • The state of the municipal bond market
    • How the Tax Exempt Income Fund may benefit portfolios in the current environment
  • Protect your Portfolio Against Volatility

    Market volatility is inevitable. Over the long-term however, you can help weather market swings by investing in funds that may help provide a measure of certainty in an uncertain world.

    Join, Wiley D. Angell, Senior Portfolio Manager, to discuss an opportunity to reduce volatility while providing more stable returns over time with the First Investors Covered Call Strategy Fund.

    During the webcast, Mr. Angell, will discuss:
    •The new post-election market paradigm
    •Why active management matters in a Covered Call Strategy
    •How a Covered Call Strategy may benefit portfolios against the new paradigm


    Presenter: Wiley D. Angell

Angell is responsible for the management of the FAMCO Group and directs the Group’s macroeconomic research.

  • Privilege: Shifting Sands, Protecting Information in Cross-Border Investigations
    Privilege: Shifting Sands, Protecting Information in Cross-Border Investigations Matt Axelrod (Partner, D.C.) Satindar Dogra (Partner, London) and Adam Lurie (Partner, D.C.), Linklaters LLP Recorded: May 3 2017 61 mins
    With cross-border enforcement on the rise, companies must consider what information, if any, to provide to various regulators. But that’s only the start of the challenge. Having decided to provide information, companies must carefully consider how to protect their privileged and otherwise protected information, including information subject to data protection law.

    This GIR Live webinar will break down these challenges as well as looking at various strategies that companies can take to protect that which is privileged or protected when interacting with regulators around the world.

    In the GIR Live style, the webinar will aim to be highly conversational and will include time for a question and answer session with the presenters.

    Issues to be addressed include:
    •How to protect privilege and data privacy during an internal investigation in response to a regulator.
    •How to interact with regulators while preserving privilege and data protection rules.
    • How do legal privileges and data privacy protections vary between key jurisdictions?
    •How does increasing cross-jurisdictional cooperation between regulators impact these considerations?
    •What recent developments should practitioners should be aware of?
  • Social media in financial services: opportunity or regulatory nightmare?

    There is no doubt that social media is a valuable engagement platform for any business. So why have financial services firms been so slow to engage with customers via this channel?

    In this webinar we will discuss:
    * What is the truth about social media in financial services: do customers really want it, and if so, what for?

    * How are banks and other financial institutions reacting?

    * Is the use of social media for two-way communication in financial services a reality today?

    * What are the compliance and risk challenges associated with social media usage; how can they be mitigated?

    * Which financial institutions are leading the way?

    * Should banks build their own social platforms to avoid compliance and control issues?
