    • Most companies today have too many BI tools. Specific use cases drove the adoption of specialized tools; in addition, BI vendors helped stoke this debate with arguments over architecture. The relational vs OLAP wars of the late 1990's were a time a strident debate. Today, with the release of Oracle BI 11g, companies today can leverage best-of-breed ROLAP and MOLAP engines as well as powerful 11g architecture to bring the metadata, query definition, user management, security and systems management. Come learn how Oracle BI Suite Enterprise Edition 11g and Oracle Essbase work better together to meet the modern BI needs of the enterprise.

    • Please join us on Monday 25 January at 11:00 CET for a webcast briefing by Richard Woolnough, fund manager of the M&G Optimal Income Fund.

      The progressive slowdown of the Chinese economy and depressed oil valuations have caused negative sentiment to take over in several asset classes and markets.

During the conference call, we will discuss Richard’s views on the oil price and the economic and bond market outlook, as well as provide an update on the positioning and performance of the M&G Optimal Income Fund.

      The webcast is expected to last an hour, there will also be an opportunity for questions and answers.

    • Where’s the value in High Yield Bonds? An update from M&G Where’s the value in High Yield Bonds? An update from M&G Stefan Isaacs and James Tomlins Recorded: Jun 18 2015 9:00 am UTC 51 mins
    • Join us for a webcast briefing by Stefan Isaacs and James Tomlins, co-fund managers of the M&G Global High Yield Corporate Bond Fund.

      Following a volatile period towards the end of 2014, high yield bonds have delivered steady returns in the first few months of 2015. Indeed, while government bonds have suffered a sharp sell-off in recent weeks, high yield has benefited from its relatively low sensitivity to rates and produced further robust gains. In the webcast, Stefan and James will provide an overview of these recent developments and discuss their current outlook for the asset class.

      James will also provide a brief update on the M&G Global Floating Rate High Yield Fund. Given their lack of interest rate duration, high yield floating rate notes (FRNs) have been well insulated from the recent turbulence in government bond markets. However, with an exposure to credit, these instruments have been able to benefit from the modest tightening in spreads since the start of the year.

      Overall, Stefan and James maintain a positive outlook for high yield bonds which they think offer an attractive source of income in the current low interest rate environment. Moreover, against a backdrop of modest economic growth, accommodative policy from the world’s central banks and low corporate default rates, high yield valuations should continue to be well supported over the coming months.

      The call will start at 10:00am BST (11.00am CET) on Thursday 18 June, will include a Q&A session and is expected to last an hour.

It also supports creation of mashups combining strategic BI data with operational BAM data and external sources.
