  • Opportunities in Emerging Markets Today, a Sweet Spot for Quants Mar 10 2020 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Arup Datta, Head of Global Quantitative Equity Team, Mackenzie Investments; Nick Fitzpatrick, Editor, Funds Europe
    Despite the current global environment of extreme market volatility amid numerous geopolitical and macroeconomic issues, emerging markets remain intriguing for institutional investors looking to add a compelling and low-correlation component to their portfolio.

    Join our webinar on March 10, when Arup Datta, Head of Global Quantitative Equity Team at Mackenzie Investments, will share his expert insights, from the perspective of a disciplined, risk-aware quantitative investor, on emerging market trends.

    Arup Datta has more than 27 years of experience in quant equity investing, with significant exposure to emerging markets. While there are additional layers of complexity to consider when investing in emerging markets, he can help investors navigate this challenging space to enhance their potential for generating alpha.

    In this webinar, Arup Datta will:

    • Compare quant and fundamental approaches to emerging market investing and why he favours a quant approach to uncover specific opportunities in emerging markets.

    • Highlight his team’s approach to quant investing, with its focus on alpha over asset gathering, and how they are well-positioned to thrive in today’s emerging markets.

    • Shed light on why it’s particularly attractive to invest in emerging markets now, as they remain a relatively overlooked or misunderstood category by many institutional investors.

  • Addressing the Impact of Tougher Rules on Investment Governance on Trustees Recorded: Feb 11 2020 28 mins
    Sean.Thompson, Managing Director, CAMRADATA; Amy Richardson, Senior Director, CAMRADATA
    Explore the tougher rules on investment governance affecting trustees’ responsibilities going forwards.

    From December 2019, trustees are legally required to run competitive tender processes to recruit fiduciary managers. Trustees will also be required to set strategic objectives for consultants, so they can measure whether the service is good value for money.

    Whether trustees are using a fiduciary management or investment consultancy advisory governance model; trustees are responsible for monitoring asset performance. This is also one way to measure whether the service has been good value for money.

    But how do trustees monitor this on an independent basis? And without using resource and time? CAMRADATA will provide information on how we are currently working with institutional investors and discuss some of the reports that are available to all trustees to help them monitor performance on an independent, ongoing and automated basis, to help meet these new requirements.

    Managing and mitigating the impact of currency volatility in global investments – both at the portfolio and investor level - can help drive better performance outcomes and attract additional investor flows.

    Devin McCune, Broadridge Financial Solutions; Peter Capper, The Investment Association; Nick Fitzpatrick, Funds Europe
    In our latest webinar, we are focusing on the Assessment of Value ruling. We will be covering a variety of very important questions, which at times could bring ambiguity into the implementation process:

    -What is value, how does a firm define it, and how is it measured?
    -What challenges will a fund company face when trying to devise metrics to measure value, including on-boarding new INEDs, evaluation of funds versus peers/benchmarks?
    -What actions can and should be taken if a fund’s value is called into question? (what if a fund isn’t providing value)
    -What is the outcome of the value review for the INEDs, management, and the end investor?

    We welcome your questions, comments and feedback following the conclusion of this webinar. Our goal is to help inform you as you move forward with implementing your company’s Assessment of Value process.
  • SFTR Webinar Series - 5 things you should know about your clients Recorded: Sep 11 2019 47 mins
    UnaVista | LSEG, Message Automation | Broadridge Financial Solutions
    As part of their SFTR preparation process, many firms in the industry will need to know more about their clients in order to prepare adequate plans in place ahead of the deadline in advance of this important regulation.

    Having a structured approach can, no doubt, help financial institutions to achieve an effective client outreach process necessitated by new regulatory compliance obligations, such as, in this case, SFTR, ensuring a fully tracked, efficient and client-centric approach to collecting data and documentation.

    In this webinar, UnaVista and Broadridge come together to discuss 5 key components of that outreach that are critical but can sometimes get overlooked, including:

    • How to get the required reference data (LEI, ISINs)?
    • Who will generate UTI?
    • Are they small non-financial counterparties (NFC-)?
    • Do they have a non-EEA reporting obligation?
    • Agreeing on the workflow

    Our panel of experts will also discuss quick polls and answer any audience questions during the live webinar and real-time Q&A session.

    11 September 2019 at 3.00pm London | 4.00pm Paris | 10.00am New York

    In this webinar, we'll be discussing some of the key factors, challenges and critical issues as well as LCH’s collaboration with UnaVista that will significantly simplify reporting obligations under SFTR for RepoClear members.

  • SFTR Webinar Series – How to prepare your data for reporting Recorded: Jun 18 2019 42 mins
    UnaVista | LSEG, Luxoft
    SFTR Data Preparation, Enrichment and Interoperability

    Given the very manual nature of workflows used for security financing transactions in general and security lending transaction and given the level of detail being required to be reported under SFTR many firms will struggle to obtain the data points needed for reporting. Service providers are offering data enrichment services to help clients navigate the reportable data points.

    Another aspect key to trade matching between TRs is generation and transmission of UTI details between counterparties.

    In this webinar, we discuss some of the key critical issues relevant to SFTR data preparation.

  • SFTR Webinar Series – Which collaborative reporting model is right for you? Recorded: Jun 13 2019 57 mins
    UnaVista | LSEG, Kaizen Reporting
    The decision to keep the reporting in house versus delegation will depend on various factors like, type of the firm, size of the firm, number of SFTs traded and firm’s view towards data security. Risk concerns will play an important role considering the sensitive information that is required to be transmitted in a delegation scenario.

    In this webinar, we'll be discussing some of the key factors, challenges and critical issues as well as 'pros and cons' around delegated reporting.

  • Using factor analysis in manager selection Recorded: Feb 6 2019 46 mins
    Nick Samuels, Redington; Bernie Nelson, Style Analytics; Nick Fitzpatrick, Funds Europe
    For Asset Owners, the ability to compare equity fund managers for hiring, firing, and allocation decisions lies at the heart of the investment decision making process. With the rise of both factor investing and smart beta products adding to the spectrum of equity funds available to investors, the decision to choose a new manager has become increasingly difficult.

    On the investment manager side, the current fee conscious environment and growing trend to move to lower cost index solution, is putting a strain on active managers. Now more than ever managers need to prove their skill and differentiate themselves from their increasing competition.

    During this webinar we will cover:

    • Different approaches to factor analysis
    • The importance of using factor analysis in the manager selection process
    • How factor attribution can isolate an investment manager’s skill

    The implementation of MiFID II at the beginning of this year brought dramatic changes to the way financial market participants work together. The unbundling of investment research fees from trade execution costs was cited as a strategic priority.
