  • How will the EU’s sustainable finance 'taxonomy' really work?
    How will the EU’s sustainable finance 'taxonomy' really work? RI and PRI Recorded: Oct 11 2018 75 mins
    One of the most significant recommendations being pursued in the EU’s Action Plan is ‘to introduce a common sustainable finance taxonomy to ensure market consistency and clarity’.

    - In what way would it work?

    - How can such a taxonomy be both flexible and have integrity for identifying activities, assets and revenue segments that deliver on key sustainability goals?

    - How could the EU and its Member States apply relevant rules, and who would regulate them?

    - What would that mean outside of the EU?

    This webinar will answer these issues and many more, and let you pose your own questions on the Taxonomy.

    Speakers:

    Martin Spolc, Head of Unit, Capital Markets Union, DG Financial Stability, Financial Services and Capital Markets Union at the European Commission (EC),

    Nathan Fabian, Chief Responsible Investment Officer, Rapporteur of the Taxonomy Group, PRI

  • Overpromised & Underdelivered: Common Misconceptions About AI for Banking
    Overpromised & Underdelivered: Common Misconceptions About AI for Banking Finn AI & FinTech Futures Recorded: Oct 9 2018 58 mins
    Connecting with your customers using conversational AI can be a game-changer for your bank. Customer satisfaction scores will skyrocket, brand loyalty will increase, and people will take control of their money and empower themselves financially like never before.

    So where are all the success stories?

    You’d be surprised how often banks get it wrong. Not because of the technology, but because their expectations are unrealistic and often the reason they fail.

    Join Dan Latimore, Senior VP at Celent and Ben Terrill, VP of Customer Success at Finn AI, on Tuesday October 9th to learn the truth behind conversational AI for banking. These experts will examine the most common misconceptions that could tank your bot deployment. Avoid these pitfalls and write your own AI success story.

    • Slow and steady wins the race – why quick wins aren't long term successes
    • You can’t set it and forget it – understanding that AI isn't self-sufficient
    • Bots are NOT Conversational Assistants - knowing the difference can make all the difference
    • A good relationship needs to be cultivated – how to optimize customer adoption and interaction post- launch
    • Cross-bot integration is hard – when to consolidate multiple deployments
  • Accelerate Open Banking with APIs, Strong Authentication and Risk-Based Security
    Accelerate Open Banking with APIs, Strong Authentication and Risk-Based Security From CA Technologies: Sanjay Tailor, Mehdi Medjaoui, Robert Lindberg, David Chui Recorded: Oct 9 2018 61 mins
    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

    All registrants will also benefit from a complimentary copy of our Banking APIs: State of the Market report.

  • Nation States - Threat Source
    Nation States - Threat Source Donald E. Hester & Robert De Roeck Recorded: Oct 4 2018 60 mins
    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 Stocktake on Emerging ESG Stewardship Themes: Spotlight on Climate Change
    A Stocktake on Emerging ESG Stewardship Themes: Spotlight on Climate Change Responsible Investor and ISS Recorded: Oct 4 2018 60 mins
    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+?

  • Assessing Cyber Risk - Challenges and Solutions
    Assessing Cyber Risk - Challenges and Solutions Stephen Head, CISSP, CISM, CISA - Director, IT Risk Advisary Services, Experis Finance Recorded: Sep 12 2018 60 mins
    Managing cyber risk in today’s digital environment is extremely challenging, whether your organization is public, private or governmental. In response to the growing frequency and severity of cyber-attacks, many organizations have decided it’s time to focus more of their efforts on cyber risk, starting with a cyber risk assessment. This approach to proactively dealing with the risk 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 assessing cyber risk and explore the following:

    •Threats and root causes of breaches
    •The changing regulatory landscape
    •Security frameworks and tools
    •Practical ways to assess your risk and organizational exposure
    •Key elements of a successful cyber risk management program

    Whether or not you have embraced a formal cyber risk management program, this session will provide practical advice on the evolving nature of cyber risk management, how to develop and incorporate an assessment process into your organization’s overall risk management efforts, and how cyber risk management can improve your organization’s ability to withstand a cyber-attack.

    Regulating financial benchmarks for European transactions Jeremy Jennings-Mares, partner and Peter Green, senior of counsel, Morrison & Foerster Nov 7 2018 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The EU Benchmark Regulation came into force in June 2016 and most of its provisions came into effect at the start of 2018.

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:

    · 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?

    3 Year Anniversary of the SDGs: How Investors Are Measuring Impact Responsible Investor and ISS Nov 14 2018 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    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?
  • GDPR Compliance - Getting it right now, and in the future
    GDPR Compliance - Getting it right now, and in the future Nathalie Semmes, KPMG and Guy Mettrick, Appian Nov 15 2018 2:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Webinar presented by Appian and KPMG - 15 November 2018 2pm GMT.

    Following the GDPR deadline on the 25th May, organisations are still very unprepared for GDPR compliance, some have gone as far as to do a data cleanse and conduct consent campaigns, but very little has been done to operationalise GDPR compliance for the long term.

    Appian and KPMG have simplified the ability to comply with GDPR with a solution built to address the current state of GDPR and adapt to future requirements. Appian and KPMG provide the power and peace of mind enterprises require to ensure compliance, protect customer data - as well as reputations - in order to stay competitive and win.

    Appian’s digital transformation platform has been used by KPMG to create five GDPR compliance privacy modules that are marketed and sold as an out-of-the-box solution. Existing and future Appian customers thus have the choice between using the proven Appian capabilities to deliver their own GDPR technology enablement or to license the KPMG solution.

    The campaign is designed to increase Appian brand awareness in Financial Services & Insurance and drive ABM inbound leads. Whilst the majority of content will be directed more so in the direction of financial services and insurance, there is still significant relevance for broad market customers due the encompassing nature of GDPR.
