      Dodd-Frank: Impact of the Fed's Proposed Prudential Standards on Foreign Banks Alma Angotti, Jay Perlman, Jim Vint, Jeremy Newell Recorded: Feb 22 2013 6:00 pm UTC 62 mins
    • The Federal Reserve recently issued proposed rules under §§ 165 and 166 of the Dodd- Frank Act that would establish enhanced prudential standards for certain foreign banking organization’s branches in the United States. The proposed rules will likely require fundamental changes in the way that many foreign banks do business in the U.S., including new requirements that many foreign banks structure their U.S. operations through U.S. intermediate holding companies and meet enhanced capital and liquidity standards, detailed corporate governance, risk management mandates, and single counterparty credit limits.

    • Storm on the Horizon – 2017 Threats Both Foreign and Familiar
      Storm on the Horizon – 2017 Threats Both Foreign and Familiar W. Jackson Schultz, Sr. Consultant & Nick DeLena, Sr. Manager - IT Audit & Security OCD Tech Recorded: Dec 6 2016 7:00 pm UTC 49 mins
    • 2016. What a year. Information Security professionals will certainly echo that sentiment. This year alone we’ve seen a four-fold increase in ransomware as reported by Symantec Security Response. Business e-mail compromise and wire transfer fraud were also prominent in year, with the FBI noting that businesses have lost $2.3 billion to this scam in the past three years.

      These are attacks that are only going to grow in number, with new threats on the horizon to our critical infrastructure. While a great boon to productivity and convenience, the Internet of Things (IoT) means that almost every device used in the United States will have an IP address.

      These devices may become susceptible to new forms of malware and represent avenues of compromise to our homes and businesses. Wearable devices are also increasing in popularity.

      The 2017 threatscape will provide malicious actors with many new attack vectors and alternative methods of compromising data and infiltrating networks. Tune in to our presentation to understand what attacks are on the rise, and some ways that your information security team can assist your organization in being proactive to help lock down infrastructure in 2017.

    • Financial institutions are facing a number of significant challenges that will require careful analysis in the coming months.

    • Foreign Investigations: A Case Study
      Foreign Investigations: A Case Study Main Justice, FTI Consulting and Fulbright & Jaworksi Recorded: Oct 4 2011 5:00 pm UTC 70 mins
    • With the widely-reported increase in FCPA enforcement by the US Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission, and the new UK Bribery Act recently taking effect, corporations are increasingly required to conduct anti-bribery due diligence and investigations across the globe. Yet EU data privacy laws often seem to be in direct conflict with US regulator’s expectations for credible investigations. Complying with US and EU requirements can require creative solutions and a strategic legal and technical partnership to gather and review the necessary data and documents.

      Attend this webcast, co-presented by Kelly Garrett Thorman of Fulbright & Jaworksi and Craig Earnshaw of FTI Technology, to learn both the legal and technical perspectives on:

      • Data privacy requirements as they relate to investigations;

      • Practical steps and considerations for large-scale international on-site document collection, processing and review;

      • Best practices from a recently completed European investigation.

    • Mastering your currency risk management
      Mastering your currency risk management Marc Tuehl, Nobby Clark and Nic Jones, HSBC; Brendan Maton, IPE Recorded: May 16 2017 2:00 pm UTC 59 mins
    • Currency volatility can have a significant impact on the risk /return profile of a diversified investment portfolio. Inefficiencies in implementing and managing a currency hedging strategy on a cyclical basis could also result in negative impacts.

      Measuring exposure to foreign currencies, monitoring any changes and managing this risk on a continuous basis raises various considerations. Not only do you need to define your investment and risk objectives, but also to consider operational risks, cost constraints and regulatory compliance. It is equally important to know the market and assess risk and opportunities specific to the global foreign exchange market.
      Our currency experts can help you find the right balance between risk and return, guide you on how to establish a robust currency management programme and how to manage related costs in an efficient manner.

      At HSBC, we can help you address these challenges with an innovative and tailored approach to outsourcing currency hedging activities. This allows financial institutions, both asset managers and institutional investors, to focus on core investment activities.

      It is time to re-think your currency management strategy. Find out more - http://www.gbm.hsbc.com/solutions/markets/fx-currency-management

    • Intellectual Property in China: Myth and Reality
      Intellectual Property in China: Myth and Reality Ian Harvey, former CEO, BTG plc and Course Professor, Tsinghua University, Beijing| Hosted by patsnap.com Recorded: Apr 5 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    • China is becoming one of the major technology and patent generators and are already filing more patents than the US and Europe. It is essential for intellectual property owners to understand the truth and the myths surrounding IP in China, and this webinar is essential listening for any individual or company looking to better understand intellectual property rights in China.

      In this webinar, you will learn that IP and its enforcement in China is much more advanced than most people realise:
      1. IP law in China is of a high quality by global standards.
      2. The quality, cost and timeliness of the “rights” (patents and trademarks) granted to foreign firms under Chinese law compare well with the rest of the world.
      3. Enforcement of patent rights is much cheaper and faster than in most developed countries. The courts, including the IP Tribunal of the Supreme Court, are handing down some very sophisticated judgement.
      4. About 95% of the foreign companies litigating their patents in China win their cases

      To dive deeper into this topic, we will be joined by our guest speaker, Ian Harvey, former CEO, BTG plc and Course Professor, Tsinghua University, Beijing. He is currently involved in development of IP in China and is pressing for the teaching of IP as part of a strategy in business school programmes worldwide.

    • Foreign-Cubed Securities Actions: What? Why? Here to Stay?
      Foreign-Cubed Securities Actions: What? Why? Here to Stay? Joseph De Simone, Esq. Partner, Mayer Brown LLP Recorded: Jul 9 2009 3:00 pm UTC 48 mins
    • Foreign-Cubed Securities Actions: What Are They? Why Are They Important? Are They Here To Stay?

      The scope of U.S. securities law in global financial markets remains an open and increasingly important question, especially in the post-credit crisis global economy. One interesting line of cases in this arena are the so-called “foreign-cubed” cases in which a US securities class action is filed in a US court against a foreign issuer on behalf of foreign investors who purchased the securities on a foreign exchange. Because Congress has remained silent on such actions, and because there is no Supreme Court precedent regarding foreign-cubed litigation, federal courts have been fertile ground for decisions regarding the propriety of foreign-cubed cases. To date, there has been no consensus among US federal courts as to what specific test or factors to apply in determining whether they have subject matter jurisdiction over foreign cubed cases. This presentation will survey the current case law and explain how the courts are applying jurisdictional tests in foreign-cubed litigation. It also will address the legal precedents upon which the current cases rely and discuss the competing policy interests related to maintaining or declining such extraterritorial jurisdiction. Finally, the discussion will focus on potential future developments in the law of foreign-cubed cases, as well as strategies for a successful securities litigation practice in this area.
