A growing number of investors are rethinking their core portfolio holdings. They are concerned not just about their portfolio’s bottom line, but about using their money to make a positive impact on the world. The question traditionally has been; do I have to give up potential returns? We say you shouldn’t have to…
Learn about two new ESG-based ETFs from FlexShares that is designed to give investors the ability to put their money where their values are. Why sacrifice potential returns in your core portfolio in order to make sustainability a key part of your investments?
Despite women’s rising economic power, many female clients face financial discrimination. The gender wage gap, the lack of funding for women entrepreneurs, and the “pink tax” levied on many products and services makes it challenging for these clients to accumulate wealth at the same rate as their male counterparts.
Money silence just makes this bad situation worse.
These women need savvy advisors to teach them “money talk” skills so they can stop paying such a high price for their gender.
In this webinar presentation, Kathleen Burns Kingsbury explains why the cost of money silence is especially high for women and offers practical strategies advisors can use to empower these clients to negotiate more and pay less.
Attend and discover:
•The high price women (and their families) pay for money silence
•Common myths about women and money that could be costing you business
•Practical strategies for teaching women negotiation skills
•How joining the Breaking Money Silence® Revolution makes good business sense
All participants receive a bonus chapter, “Is Your Gender Costing You A Fortune?” from Breaking Money Silence: How To Shatter Money Taboos, Talk More Openly, and Live a Richer Life, to be published September 30, 2017.
Kathleen will answer attendees’ questions during the session and will be available to continue the discussion on APViewpoint.

Last week, Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen laid out initial plans for the Fed to begin shrinking its $4.5 trillion balance sheet. Colin Robertson, head of fixed income, explores what it may mean for investors and the markets.
Banks, credit unions and insurance companies may have differing business models, but they all have a common goal: better conversion and retention rates.
Fortunately, better customer onboarding usually translates to better conversion and retention. For this reason, organizations continue to invest in digital technologies to streamline operations and eliminate time-consuming online interactions in areas such as new account opening, loan origination and policy applications.
Those first information-intensive interactions, of course, are the most critical: you usually only get once chance to win a new customer’s business. But winning is only part of the equation. What if you could win—and wow—customers from those first moments and keep them engaged throughout the onboarding process?
Mark your calendars for this upcoming webinar, where industry experts will share six best practices to help your organization win and wow customers:
• Easy—Enable instant image and data capture via web and mobile technology
• Accurate—Extract data from pictures of physical documents without error-prone manual entry
• Automated—Invest in workflow tools to automate and track completion of process steps
• Visible—Empower staff and customers with process transparency and timely communication
• Consistent—Ensure data is complete and integrated across internal systems
• Efficient—Meet expectations for speed, while effectively managing regulatory risks
Speakers will include:
•Sheryl Kingstone, Director, 451 Research
•Sarah Johnson, Industry Solutions Architect, Kofax
•Jim Marous, Owner and Publisher, Digital Banking Report
As enterprises evolve their digital infrastructure, service providers need to piece together offerings that will differentiate themselves without breaking the bank. In this panel we will discuss how M&A can provide some missing pieces and what those pieces may be. Join our distinguished panel of finance experts as we discuss key questions such as: Who is likely to go shopping? What firms will be targets? Are networks and datacenters more or less sought after than services and software providers? How are assets being valued? What financing is available and on what terms? We will debate these and more as we explore trends impacting this dynamic sector.
Leadership Panel Session Featuring:
James Henry, Senior Managing Director, Bank Street
Andrew Bartrop, Global Investment Banking, Deutsche Bank Securities, Inc.
With stocks across the U.S., Europe, Japan and the emerging markets breaching their historic average valuations, some wonder when gravity will take hold and bring things back to average levels. Katie Nixon explains why the laws of physics may not apply here.
Forget Oracle, IBM or any of the other big-name, publicly traded acquirers that – until now --have always set the tone in the tech M&A market. If a tech deal printed in 2017, the buyer is more likely a private equity firm than any of the well-known serial acquirers on the US stock market. This is the first time in the history of the multibillion-dollar tech M&A market that financial acquirers have been busier than these strategic acquirers. To understand how the ever-growing influence of buyout shops is reshaping the tech industry, join 451 Research for an hour-long webinar on Thursday, Sept. 7 2017.
FTSE Russell Senior Research Director, Tom Goodwin, PhD will provide a quick update on the Russell 2000 Index, exploring 2nd quarter 2017 data and trends. There will be time for Q&A following the update.

As cloud continues to erase the network perimeter, it’s more important than ever to align IT infrastructure to track more closely to the businesses it serves.
As a result, gateway technology choices and investments need to fit the cloud model and fit in terms of security use case, value, and real-world business requirements.

IT planners have far more options as to where to run their workloads than ever before. On-premises data centers, co-location facilities and managed services providers are now joined by hybrid multi-clouds – a combination of Software-, Infrastructure- and Platform-as-a-Service (SaaS, IaaS, and PaaS) execution venues. All have unique operational, performance and economic characteristics that need to be considered when deploying workloads.
In this Webinar Carl Lehmann, Principal Analyst with 451 Research, and Don Davis, Technology Director for Iron Mountain’s Data Center business will discuss how industry leading enterprises determine the best execution venues for their workloads by addressing:
•The market and technology trends that influence workload, data center and cloud strategy
•How to evaluate the characteristics of various workloads and execution venues
•How to manage workloads across on-premises and off-premises ecosystems
Attendees will learn how to formulate an IT strategy that can be used to guide the decision criteria needed for placing workloads on their best execution venues, and enable the migration and ongoing management of workloads across a hybrid multi-cloud enterprise architecture.
