Sean McKessy and Vincente Martinez are the heads of the newly-established Whistleblower Offices at the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, respectively. At their agencies, McKessy and Martinez lead critical, high-profile programs established under Dodd-Frank that are designed to pay awards to individuals who voluntarily provide original information about violations of the securities laws.

The new whistleblower rules have generated a huge number of questions for individuals and companies as to how the rules will be implemented and how they may impact existing compliance programs. In this webcast, the two men who are responsible for running these Whistleblower Offices will explain how the programs work, and how the new whistleblower rules may affect the role of compliance professionals and the internal reporting process. Topics will include:

•How the rules incentivize whistleblowers to report internally;
•How the rules affect the ability of compliance personnel to become whistleblowers;
•How the rules vary depending on the strength of an entity’s compliance and control environment;
•How the rules can serve as the incentive to build more robust compliance programs; and
•McKessy’s assessment of the progress of the SEC’s Whistleblower Office as he completes his first year as Chief of the Office.

Please join Sean McKessy, Chief, Office of the Whistleblower; and Vincente Martinez, Director, Whistleblower Office, U. S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission, as they address these issues and your questions in a one-hour webcast.

    • a practical overview of the Cayman LLC regime;
    • a useful comparison to the current Delaware LLC law; and

  • Climate Risk Reporting Climate Risk Reporting Daniel Brooksbank, Editor, Responsible-Investor.com Recorded: May 12 2016 58 mins
    The battle of the resolutions – focus on ExxonMobil:
    • Can an informal alliance of global investors achieve their aim of establishing a new set of norms around climate risk reporting and disclosure?
    • With European investors and corporations broadly backing calls for improved climate risk reporting and disclosure, is this the moment we will see North America come on board?
    • Will this resolution end the apparent inconsistency by asset owners and asset managers who vote for climate risk resolutions when supported by management but not when companies resist?

    Speakers:
    • Patrick Doherty, Director of Corporate Governance, NYS Office of the State Comptroller (USA)
    • Edward Mason, Head of Responsible Investment, Church Commissioners (UK)
    • Anne Simpson, Investment Director, Global Governance, CalPERS (USA)
    • Helen Wildsmith, Stewardship Director - Climate Change, CCLA Investment Management (UK)•
    • Shanna Cleveland, Senior Manager - Carbon Asset Risk Initiative, Ceres

    Overview:
    Stockholder Proposal Regarding Report on Climate Change Impact Assessment is Item No 12 on the ballot at ExxonMobil’s AGM on 25 May. It has been co-filed by England’s Church Commissioners and the New York State Common Retirement Fund in the US. This transatlantic partnership is a first for the Church Commissioners.

    The resolution asks ExxonMobil to improve its annual reporting on climate risk and to disclose to investors how resilient the company’s portfolio would be if efforts to restrict warming to 2° were successful. In an article written by Edward Mason for Responsible Investor link, he explains that their resolution doesn’t ask ExxonMobil to change its house view that the 2° target will be overshot. It simply asks them to report on how the business would fare were the Paris Agreement to be implemented. It is the same request for reporting on portfolio resilience that the “Aiming for A” shareholder resolutions made of BP and Shell in 2015.

  • Retail Payments: Stay Ahead of the Curve Retail Payments: Stay Ahead of the Curve Kevin Johnson - Key Account Manager, IR | Jim Knudsen - Payments Solutions Engineer, IR Recorded: Apr 7 2016 48 mins
    Many retailers have chosen to own and run their own payment systems. Having control of this critical infrastructure is key to their long-term success. However, the rapid acceptance of mobile and other alternative payment types means that retail payment systems are becoming increasingly complex and expensive to manage and maintain.

    The good news is that there is a wealth of transaction data coming from these systems that can be used to help manage your business. Using intuitive dashboards to display the most relevant information about system performance and transaction trends, retailers can significantly enhance their ability to prevent system problems, identify and address transaction related issues, improve customer service and have a positive impact on the bottom line.

    In this webinar, the IR team will look at how retailers are using their system and transaction data to manage their operations more effectively and make better business decisions.

    Specific areas to be explored include:
    •Preventing system outages before they happen
    •Tracking response times by BIN, Issuer, Response Code, Route, Store
    •Managing an EMV rollout, including fallbacks (by store)
    •Monitoring and managing Service Level Agreements
    •Uncovering real-time and historical transaction trends
