  • Is it too late to catch the EMD train?
    Is it too late to catch the EMD train? Nishant Upadhyay, Jaymeson Kumm, Brian Dunnett Jun 27 2017 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Please join HSBC portfolio managers, Nishant Upadhyay and Jaymeson Kumm, as they discuss opportunities and risks in the local and hard currency segments of the asset class. Brian Dunnett, Senior Product Specialist, will moderate the discussion.

    Emerging markets debt (EMD) has performed extremely well so far this year, and is showing historically low volatility. Price stability coupled with improving fundamentals in some EM economies are attracting funds into EMD and lifting valuations in the asset class. But will investors continue to be compensated for the risks?

    Topics include:
    • Where we see value in the asset class
    • EMD and correlations to oil
    • Benefits of exposure to high yield and frontier markets debt
  • 2017 Midyear Outlook: Great Expectations for Global Growth
    2017 Midyear Outlook: Great Expectations for Global Growth Markus Schomer Jun 29 2017 2:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    We believe 2017 will be the year where growth cycles reconnect and become more synchronized.

    Almost halfway through the year, we have seen some surprises in global markets and economies. Political risk in Europe – what seemed to be the biggest threat to global growth – has largely been defanged. But political risk in the US and Latin America is gaining strength.

    Join Markus Schomer, CFA, Chief Global Economist, as he explores the key drivers of his midyear economic outlook:

    •The global growth triangle and how it’s driving a regime change in markets
    •Developed versus emerging market implications
    •What investors should expect
  • Financial Market Perspective, H1 2017 - Inflection Points and Contrast
    Financial Market Perspective, H1 2017 - Inflection Points and Contrast Eric Parnell, CFA, Founder & Director, Gerring Capital Partners Jul 12 2017 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    The first half of 2017 has provided a lot of surprises, politically and economically, from the French and UK elections, activity in the Gulf, the direction of the US economy and the evolution of fiscal and monetary policy.

    Some were more predictable than others but what is becoming clear looking to Q3 and Q4 is the significant inflection points so far, and the contrast this will cause between the first and second half of the year.

    So join Eric Parnell, CFA and Founder & Director of Gerring Capital Partners as he provides a perspective on H1 2017 and an outlook for H2. Attend live and discover:

    - A variety of inflection points in both economics and policy in H1 2017
    - Why we are arriving at these inflection points and how these transitions are likely to impact stock, bond and commodities markets.
    - The reasons for and outcomes of the drastic contrast between H1 and H2 2017, including a expected increase in market volatility and uncertainty.
  • Optimisation & Security: Personal Data's Impact on Retail and Financial Services
    Optimisation & Security: Personal Data's Impact on Retail and Financial Services Jonathan Williams (MK2 Consulting) Jul 20 2017 12:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Financial Services companies rely on personal data for both their retail and business customers. Legislation and regulation, such as AMLD4, PSD2 and GDPR; both control and mandate its use.

    How can FS companies manage and use the data effectively? Join this panel where we'll discuss the many new regulations coming up and what you should be doing as early as now to prepare your organisation and optimise your processes.
  • Data Analytics in Financial Services: Identifying obstacles and key issues
    Data Analytics in Financial Services: Identifying obstacles and key issues Alex Kwiatkowski (Misys), Peter Jackson (Southern Water) Jul 20 2017 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    In an increasingly digitalised world, the value of information grows ever higher. Winning organisations – whether in financial services or any other vertical sector – will be those who can harness the power of data analytics to develop microscopic levels of insight and foresight into customer behaviours and operational activities in order to make progressive improvements on a continuous basis. Product development informed by factual evidence rather than educated guesswork, or real-time risk management based on a hyper-accurate picture of exposures, bring significant internal and external benefits.

    However, while banks want to get closer to their customers, is the feeling mutual? Data privacy is a very sensitive issue, and the perception of what constitutes intrusion will likely vary between individuals. Institutions, therefore, need to walk a fine line between what’s genuinely useful and what’s genuinely creepy.

    During this webinar, a panel of respected subject matter experts will discuss and dissect the key issues related to the widespread use of data analytics in financial services, identifying the obstacles which need to be overcome and the enablers that will drive FS forward successfully.
