    Dr. Anne Lewis, Head of Product Development, Vaultex Recorded: Mar 19 2019 40 mins
    What determines how people pay for their goods and services? How might using cash instead of a debit card reflect your personality? Are you a utilitarian or hedonistic shopper?

  • Stress Testing in Practice
    Stress Testing in Practice
    Christoph V. Schon, Executive Director of Applied Research Recorded: Mar 18 2019 57 mins
    A good stress test needs two ingredients. First, one needs to decide which variable(s) to stress and by how much. Second, comes the identification of a suitable calibration period for the covariance matrix used to estimate the other pricing factors. The latter can often be the more difficult, in particular if one does not want to simply rely on recent correlations to hold. In this webinar, Christoph V. Schon, Executive Director of Applied Research, will talk about the challenges he and his colleagues face (e.g. looking for relevant precedents or dealing with a lack of historical data) and how they deal with them, drawing from a number of recent studies conducted by the team.

  • How ETF Investors Can Find Hidden Value from Chinese Internet Exposure
    How ETF Investors Can Find Hidden Value from Chinese Internet Exposure
    Brendan Ahern, Chief Investment Officer & Dr. Xiaolin Chen, Head of International Mar 21 2019 12:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    Chinese equities are back in focus as the US and China close in on a trade deal. We believe that simply moving into a general, broad-based China or emerging market fund may not be the most optimal approach.

    Broad-based China or emerging market indexes often have greater weights to sectors such as financials and commodities while underweighting growth sectors, such as consumer technology.

    Despite the recent expansion of technology and e-commerce in emerging markets, the largest sector by weight of the top 5 US-listed emerging market ETFs is financials with a median weight of 25%.

    Discerning investors may consider adding KWEB to their current China or emerging market allocation in order to achieve the optimal sector exposure to match their specific risk/growth appetite.
  • Navigating a smooth course
    Navigating a smooth course
    Nick Maroutsos Mar 21 2019 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Date: 21 March 2019 | Time: 2pm (GMT)

    Markets have been volatile over the past year as deteriorating economic data, trade tensions and shifting central bank rhetoric have caused asset prices and yields to fluctuate. Following the launch of two new funds that pursue the Janus Henderson Absolute Return Strategy, portfolio manager Nick Maroutsos looks at how investors can navigate this environment and chart a potentially less volatile path with their fixed income investments. Areas covered include:

    •An assessment of the macroeconomic environment for fixed income

  • Exposed to Nonsense? Spurious Factors in Popular Investment Tools
    Exposed to Nonsense? Spurious Factors in Popular Investment Tools
    Felix Goltz, Research Director, Scientific Beta, and Head of Applied Research at EDHEC-Risk Institute; Brendan Maton, IPE Mar 21 2019 3:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Factor investing offers a big promise. By identifying the persistent drivers of long-term returns in their portfolios, investors can understand which risks they are exposed to, and make explicit choices about these exposures.

    When it comes to information about factors, providers offer analytic toolkits to identify the factor exposures of an investor's portfolio. However, these analytic tools do not employ academically grounded factors and their factor finding process maximises the risk of ending up with false factors. These non-standard factors also lead to mismeasurement of exposures and may capture exposure to redundant factors. In the end, analytic tools for investors do not deliver on the promise of factor investing and they also lack transparency.

    This webinar will contrast factor definitions used in analytic tools offered to investors and compare them with the standard academic factors. We will also outline why the methodologies used in popular tools pose a high risk of ending up with irrelevant factors.

  • Panel Discussion: 3 Game-Changing Innovation Models in Financial Services Today
    Panel Discussion: 3 Game-Changing Innovation Models in Financial Services Today
    Pat Patel, Money20/20 | Drew Graham, Standard Chartered Bank | Megan Caywood, Starling Bank Apr 4 2019 1:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Innovation has quickly become an overused and distorted word. At Money20/20 Europe expect to cut through the hype, explore what measurements we can use to benchmark innovation and get to the heart of sustainable and commercial step change. A key question which has moved back up the C-Level agenda of established; banks, tech companies and payments companies is:

    "How can incumbents deliver meaningful game-changing innovation?"

    There are three options available for incumbents, and at Money20/20 Europe we’ll be developing deeper into each one:

    1. Can organisations transform their cultures to execute true innovation internally within their organisations? (cultural transformation)

    2. Perhaps tech transformation is the way forward, partnering or acquisitions to do so?

    3. Or do they need to achieve business model transformation by building something entirely new outside of the organisation?


    These options are being heavily debated in boardrooms throughout Europe, with a number of high profile banks recently announcing plans to build brand new subsidiaries. Some of the traditional banks, payments and tech companies are pursuing a few or all of the options while others are sitting on the fence. Which is most effective and why? What are the dynamics at play that determine success for different types of companies? Hear from the leading companies in our industry as they share their incisive insight on the successes but also the failures and the lessons learned.
