  • Currency Management: Capitalizing on Industry Challenges Jan 30 2020 2:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Andy Lemon, Head of Currency Management Global Foreign Exchange, Northern Trust; Alex Dunegan, CEO Lumint Corporation
    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. However, the process can be time-consuming and complex leading to additional risk and cost pressures. As asset managers and asset owners grapple with unprecedented industry challenges from multiple sources, many are evaluating their options to access external support and expertise for their currency management needs. But what are the factors to consider when delegating elements of this key function to a third party?

    Join our webinar on January 30th, when Northern Trust’s Head of Currency Management Global Foreign Exchange, Andy Lemon and Lumint Corporation’s CEO, Alex Dunegan, will discuss the key issues shaping the global currency management industry including:

    • Mounting pressures from escalating regulatory and compliance challenges, technology costs and operational complexity
    • The continued squeeze on cost margins, demand for product scalability and strong focus on accountability and oversight
    • Why these industry challenges are driving many to consider consolidation and / or delegation to a third party
    • Insights into key considerations and the increasingly sophisticated solutions available
    • What’s in store for currency management in 2020

  • Assessment of Value Webinar Recorded: Sep 17 2019 48 mins
    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.

  • 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
