    • Strategy Indices And Their Role In Institutional Portfolio Construction Strategy Indices And Their Role In Institutional Portfolio Construction Brendan Maton Recorded: Feb 16 2012 10:00 am UTC 62 mins
    • MSCI invites you to attend a special webinar on ‘Strategy Indices and Their Role in Institutional Portfolio Construction.”
      The event will be hosted by Dimitris Melas, MSCI Executive Director and Global Head of New Product Research, and Roger Urwin, Special Adviser to MSCI and Global Head of Investment Content at Towers Watson.
      Topics for discussion include:
      * Definitions of alpha are evolving as investors recognise that strategy indices can capture various systematic risk premia (alternative beta) such as value, size, low volatility or momentum. Systematic factors are increasingly considered key drivers of long-term performance.
      * Institutional asset allocation may be on the verge of a shift from diversification across active managers in multiple alpha mandates towards diversification across strategy betas in multiple index mandates.
      * We present a risk budgeting framework for integrating strategy indices into institutional portfolios where allocations to risk premia strategies are based on their expected risk and performance characteristics.
      * Increasing adoption of risk-based asset allocation, growing acceptance of the potential impact of systematic risk factors on long-term portfolio performance and the need to capture these factors through transparent and cost effective vehicles may drive further innovation and new product development in the indexing arena.

    • Construction and Demolition Waste Recycling Market Growth Fuelled by Circular Ec Construction and Demolition Waste Recycling Market Growth Fuelled by Circular Ec Monika Chrusciak, Research Analyst Recorded: Jul 25 2014 11:00 am UTC 16 mins
    • Construction and Demolition (C&D) waste has become a major concern in Europe, driven by legal requirements regarding waste reduction, recycling and diverting waste material resources away from landfilling. The gradual increase of waste and limited landfill space boost recycling efforts, which benefits the development of the C&D waste recycling services market. Legislative goals are targeting 70% recycling of C&D waste by 2020, which is a key driver for this market. The push for C&D waste recycling has further prompted waste management companies to optimize collection systems and increase recycling levels to sustain market revenues. Optimization of collection and recycling technologies is expected to increase revenue for C&D waste recycling companies. This briefing provides top-level insight of the analysis conducted on the European C&D Waste Recycling sector for the forecast period from 2012 to 2020.

    • Malware construction is a globally competitive business. Unfortunately, what used to require years of development experience has been boiled down in to a downloadable package and is now publicly available for a nominal fee. The hurdle for would-be criminals to develop custom malware capable of bypassing today’s anti-virus technologies has been lowered to no more than a speed-bump and is getting lower. This session will look at the DIY Malware business and how federated construction tactics have led to a pandemic of new malware and nimble botnets.
