    • Independent Research Validates the CDO Role and Mission Independent Research Validates the CDO Role and Mission Gene Leganza, Vice President, Research Director, Forrester & Myles Franklin Suer, Chief Platform Evangelist, Informatica Recorded: Sep 13 2016 5:00 pm UTC 61 mins
    • In our webinar, our guest speaker from Forrester will describe the Informatica-commissioned research on the emerging CDO function. This includes answering the following questions:

      •What is driving the emergence of the CDO role?
      •Is the CDO a short term function and a transition point to something else?
      •What are the key functions that CDOs are trying to accomplish?
      •What relationships does the CDO need?
      •What are the key things that a CDO needs to do to succeed?

      In general, the May 2016 Forrester Consulting study, Data-Centric Business Need a Data-Driven Leader, showed that CDOs are business leaders that have as their goal to build data-driven businesses. This means managing business functions including data governance, data management, data science, and enterprise data strategy. After Forrester shares their CDO research, Informatica will review each of the CDO functions and share how an integrated data platform holistically addresses each function.

    • CDO Litigation Reaching Crucial Stage CDO Litigation Reaching Crucial Stage Jay Tambe, James Goldfarb, Jeff Nielsen, Gene Deetz Recorded: Jun 10 2009 6:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    • Collateralized Debt Obligations – CDOs – have been the focus of much attention and ire in the wake of the credit crisis. But litigation over these structured financial products has been largely overshadowed by more high profile actions, such as subprime class actions and Ponzi scheme litigation. That could change in the coming months as a number of courts decide motions to dismiss that currently are pending in several CDO cases. Those decisions have the potential to invite additional CDO lawsuits or stop such suits in their tracks.

      Join Jay Tambe and James Goldfarb of Jones Day, and Jeff Nielsen and Gene Deetz of Navigant Consulting at 2 p.m. on June 11 for a timely webinar focusing on CDOs, the current lawsuits, and the litigation risks and issues facing CDO investors and the professionals that create, market, manage, and administer CDOs.

    • Secrets of the Data Lake Secrets of the Data Lake Maloy Manna, Engineering, AXA Data Innovation Lab Recorded: Mar 10 2016 2:00 pm UTC 49 mins
    • Hadoop vendors and big data system integrators have skewed the data analytics mind space with incessant marketing about data lakes.

      Operationalising a data lake seems as easy as buying the next hot Hadoop distribution. Questions remain however on capabilities of the data lake regarding integration of big data and existing BI systems, data quality, metadata and data governance.

      Can the data lake live up to its hype? Can a Hadoop data lake solve all your data problems and deliver value?

      In this webinar, we'll see practical aspects to consider while implementing a data lake and how to get started on the data lake journey. We'll explore data lake implementations from the perspective of different user personas -- architect, data scientist, business user and CIO or CDO.

      Your takeaways would be immediate steps to design and manage to get the best out of date lake investments.

    • A Survey of the RMBS Litigation Landscape A Survey of the RMBS Litigation Landscape Joshua Rosner, Talcott Franklin, Christopher Malloy, Gerald Silk Recorded: Jan 26 2011 7:00 pm UTC 66 mins
    • The fallout from the collapse of the U.S. housing market is far from over. Institutional investors worldwide have suffered losses on purchases of toxic residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS) and collateralized debt obligations (CDOs) that were, in many cases, sold by Wall Street investment banks based upon false and misleading disclosures. These alleged securities law violations have already resulted in a wave of investor litigation in state and federal courts throughout the country.

      Our webcast program will dissect the RMBS litigation landscape, addressing the origination and securitization process, the litigation claims and defenses in these cases, the litigation scorecard thus far, and the potential exposure for the banks. The discussion will feature a panel of experts deeply versed in this area: Senior industry analyst Joshua Rosner, who has advised regulators and institutional investors on housing and mortgage finance issues; noted author and litigator Talcott Franklin, the author of the Mortgage and Asset Backed Securities Litigation Handbook, who has also established the RMBS Investor Clearing House; leading securities litigator Christopher Malloy, partner at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP & Affiliates, who represents financial institutions in multiple subprime, RMBS and CDO related cases; and BLB&G partner and moderator Gerald Silk, who is representing numerous institutional investors in RMBS related actions.

      Please join us for a discussion of the issues facing RMBS investors and their legal implications.

    • EMIR reporting, February 2014: The LEI requirements and how to meet them EMIR reporting, February 2014: The LEI requirements and how to meet them Chris Johnson and Hany Choueiri Recorded: Jan 15 2014 2:30 pm UTC 48 mins
    • European Markets Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR) transaction reporting commences February 12th 2014 and requires transaction reporting for OTC derivatives as well as exchange traded futures and options. There is a risk that buy-side clients might not be aware that they could face trading restrictions for derivatives (both for exchange traded and OTC derivatives) if they do not have a Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) for their funds or organisations.

      EMIR reporting requires firms to decide who will perform the reporting and which trade repository to use. What is not so well understood is that an LEI is also a requirement for reporting, and banks and brokers could require LEIs as a condition of trading. The LEIs can be sourced from Local Operating Units but most of these have been created recently and have limited capacity. Firms will need to act quickly to be sure of obtaining LEIs for their funds before the deadline.

      Chris Johnson, Head of Product Management, Market Data Services at HSBC Securities Services, and Hany Choueiri, GBM Chief Data Officer (CDO) Europe & Head of Data Quality Services, will host a webinar to explain how funds and other Counterparties can obtain Legal Entity Identifiers for their funds or organisations in the limited time still available before February 12th 2014, and a brief update about the evolving Global LEI system.
