  • How are Pension Funds seeking new cost efficiencies?
    How are Pension Funds seeking new cost efficiencies?
    Armit Bhambra, Head of UK Retirement, iShares by BlackRock; Maya Beyhan, Investment Strategist, Kempen; Brendan Maton, IPE Recorded: Nov 15 2018 47 mins
    Since 2009, ETF assets have increased from c.$1trn to above $4trn today*. As AUM has increased, so too has the volume traded over exchanges, which has the direct impact of reducing transaction costs versus trading in the primary markets. This changing landscape requires a more holistic view of costs.

    In this webinar, we focus on ETFs and when and why it maybe more cost efficient to use an ETF instead of an alternative wrapper. We will look at the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) framework and how it can help drive cost efficiencies for your Pension Fund, for both ETFs and IMFs. It also enables you to evaluate the most cost-efficient vehicle and gives you a better reflection of true costs.

    We will discuss how you can make cost efficiencies for your pension fund and address the following key questions:

    · What are the cost benefits of ETFs?
    · How will it fit within our current pension fund portfolio?
    · What is the Total Cost Ownership (TCO) framework?
    · How does TCO differ to the traditional cost analysis model for mutual funds?
    · Should I consider ETFs as a key investment strategy for our pension fund?
    · ETFs have been on the rise for the last few decades, will the trend continue?
    · What is the key strategy to achieving a strong return and cost-efficiencies?

    Are ‘LPs’ becoming ‘GPs’? Drivers and challenges for alternatives investing
    Mark Austin and Stuart Lawson, Northern Trust; James Alexander, Accenture; Brendan Maton, IPE Recorded: Nov 14 2018 70 mins
    As institutional investors /pension schemes boost their exposure to alternative assets at transformational levels, they are exploring a variety of ways to access the investments. An evolving approach is to venture beyond the investor role by entering the realm of the asset manager and establishing their own investment vehicles.

    The webcast will:

    • Examine the drivers and challenges for investment in alternative assets
    • Explore the changing relationship between ‘LPs’ and ‘GPs’
    • Outline key considerations for direct investment

    China has rapidly gone through a wave of consumption upgrade over the past few years. Amid the rising uncertainties in China’s economic growth, many wonder if Chinese consumers still have more room / budget to upgrade.

  • Navigating a challenging year for fixed income with a flexible approach
    Navigating a challenging year for fixed income with a flexible approach
    Andrew Mulliner & Ryan Myerberg Nov 20 2018 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    2018, so far, has been a fairly turbulent environment for fixed income markets, marked by sporadic shocks, which investors have largely treated as being driven by one off or transitory events. However, the list of such transitory episodes continues to grow and the cumulative impact on the fixed income universe poses significant challenges to investors. Thus, the flexibility to seek out the best opportunities and protect against the worst case scenarios without any constraints has never been more important, given the continued presence of historically low yields in the developed world at a time of declining global liquidity.

    In this webcast, Andrew Mulliner and Ryan Myerberg, Portfolio Managers of the Janus Henderson Horizon Total Return Bond Fund share their thoughts on the markets and the prospects for bond investors in the near future. The webcast session will also include a review of the performance of the fund and summary of current positioning.

    Global equities update
    Peter Rutter Nov 21 2018 2:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Peter Rutter, Head of Global Equities will be focusing on the factors that influence how RLAM’s Global Equity funds perform and how these fit with clients’ wider portfolios. In previous webinars Peter has introduced the differentiated and proven investment process employed by the RLAM Global Equity fund managers. This process leads to differentiated portfolios with performance driven by stock selection and some clear and consistent style and factor characteristics. In particular the funds have tended to perform best when valuation factors are outperforming and there is a risk-off environment in equities. Peter will explain why this is consistent with the investment process and consequently how the portfolios might fit a strong complement to managers with more global growth and larger cap exposures in global equities.
  • The Power of IPOs & Spin-Offs - New US Opportunities
    The Power of IPOs & Spin-Offs - New US Opportunities
    Greg Guerin, Senior Product Specialist Nov 21 2018 2:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    It’s no secret that the thematic offering of IPOs and Spin-Offs constitute a significant part of equity capital markets activity and are seen as drivers of innovation and growth.

    According to Bloomberg, from 2002 through September 2018, U.S. IPOs have raised over $529.49 billion USD in market cap.

    The key is to find the right investments and the right solution for you!
    The primary motivation for many investors regarding IPOs is to receive a short-term surge in price, regardless of a stock’s longer-term potential for success or failure.

    At First Trust, we take a different approach. Through our disciplined and rules-based approach, we seek to capture asset allocation benefits of strong performing U.S. companies as they transfer from a private to a publicly traded company post-IPO.

    This webinar aims to help enhance your understanding how IPOs and Spin-Offs work and how the IPOX®-100 U.S. Index technology can help investors get exposure to unique factors, not possible with conventional benchmarks.

    Webinar Highlights:
    •What are IPOs and Spin-Offs
    •Thematic approach: The market data and investment rationale
    •Why long-term asset allocation capture is behind FPX
    •Discuss the specialist FPX rules based and diversified ETF wrapper

    Ash Seddeek Nov 28 2018 1:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    The financial services industry has been struggling to give
    its customers a delightful experience yet to date those experiences
    are still based on a mid-90s thought process around the customer
    experience that focuses on making transactions easier to do, less
    steps, move convenient.

    FinTechs have stepped in to create value by simplifying some
    transactions with companies such as Lending Tree lending club,
    Venmo and others but value remains minimal.

    We believe more value can be created if more thought is given to
    value creation for customers beyond the faster, more efficient or
    social transaction.

    With a proactive finance philosophy driving how we ideate about the
    next generation of financial products, we will bring financial advisor
    smarts to our product ideas and innovations and will connect more
    dots across the customer’s financial life style and events.

    This way customers will get a lot more value out of their existing and
    future assets and investments and as a result, they will get an
    optimized portfolio of services on an ongoing basis while adapting to
    their life events.
