Engagement in bonds - Short term debt cares about long term problems

There is a long-running argument that investors in bonds – and all types of credit instruments for that matter – and shareholders have diverging interests that preclude them from engaging with companies on the same concerns. Join Mitch Reznick, Head of Research and Sustainable Fixed Income at the international business of Federated Hermes, as he challenges this claim by demonstrating how bondholders and shareholders, as financial stakeholders in companies, can be aligned to jointly engage companies – and generate positive outcomes by doing so.

  • Big Data: Both A Trial And A Tribulation Within The Financial Services Sector Oct 7 2021 9:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Laurent Denayer; Karin Erfurth; Brice Lecoustey; Julien Ganter; Maxime Aerts
    One of the main issues faced by many institutions is that their data is unorganised and/or inaccessible. In a sector where the level of data processed daily is so extensive, it is crucial that institutions extract the most useful insights from any data produced. While the SaaS model has been popular for more than a decade, DaaS is a concept that is only now beginning to see widespread adoption with a peak in adoption foreseen in or around 2027. DaaS platforms promise streamlined data access and management as well as cross system compatibility and the reduction of duplicate data and incidences.

    The panel includes:
    • Laurent Denayer, CEO, ume
    • Karin Erfurth, Director - Project Management Office, EQT Partners/EQT AB
    • Brice Lecoustey, Partner, EY Consulting & EYnovation
    • Maxime Aerts, MD and COO, Fundsquare

  • Digital assets and the transformation of the funds industry Recorded: Sep 15 2021 49 mins
    Nik Pratt, Adam Belding, Lex Sokolin, Jeroen van Oerle, Nadine Chakar
    Funds Europe’s Technology and Operations Editor Nicholas Pratt and a panel of experts discuss how digital assets could transform the fund management industry within three years.

    • Jeroen van Oerle, portfolio manager, Lombard Odier

    • what supporting infrastructure will be required to support the adoption of digital assets.

  • Are Cryptocurrencies and Tokenisation Changing the Face of Asset Management? Recorded: Jul 7 2021 47 mins
    Paul Barker, CLT International Ltd; Adam Belding, Calastone; Luke Dorney, Zodia; Karen O'Sullivan, CSSF
    Hedge funds and institutional investors are investing in cryptocurrencies and digital assets in increasing numbers. However a lack of safeguards and consistent global rules has led regulators to step in, issuing warnings and banning potentially volatile products in order to protect investors. Meanwhile, the market remains divided on the merits of certain crypto assets.

    • Will greater regulatory intervention deter some investors but attract others?
    • Do cryptocurrencies belong in the same category as security tokens?
    • And where is the market infrastructure needed to create a sustainable and functioning
    crypto marketplace?

    Join our webinar on 7 July at 10:00am BST, as we discuss whether cryptocurrencies have a future in the asset management industry or if the financial risk is just too great.

    The panel includes:
    • Paul Barker, Head of Professional Development (Wealth), CLT International Ltd
    • Adam Belding, Chief Technology Officer, Calastone
    • Luke Dorney, Head of Sales & Partnerships, Zodia

  • The post-pandemic landscape in asset management Recorded: Jun 16 2021 61 mins
    Elizabeth Pfeuti, Jennifer Anderson, Simon Ellis, Dr Jonathan Lipkin, Joseph Saliba
    Please join our webinar, which focuses on the future of asset management and draws key insights from our recent survey of fund professionals. The webinar will provide you with a unique end-to-end perspective on the industry’s shifting priorities in a post-pandemic world.

    The last fourteen months have created several pressure points in asset management as the industry adapts to the pandemic. Priorities are also shifting because of regulatory pressures, technology adoption, costs, an evolving appetite for real assets and the strong rise in sustainable governance, especially around ESG and climate risks. How will the asset management landscape evolve?

    Our panel of industry experts will explore this changing landscape, bringing together their insight with our research findings to focus on a range of topical areas:

    • The main risks and drivers to the industry
    • The digital transition
    • The increasing focus on sustainable governance
    • Business resilience

    Nik Pratt, Kate Webber, Thomas Chevalier, Paud O’Keeffe, John Wallis
    Technology lies at the heart of the asset management industry, but how are fund management and asset servicing communities adapting their operations to get ready for the future? Which technology will they invest in? And what adjustments to their investment culture and operational frameworks does this require?

    Join leaders and experts from across the industry in this webinar to explore the findings from our report: ‘The Future of Investment Operations’ and hear how the asset management industry is preparing for the next phase of growth.

  • Bringing private equity to retail investors Recorded: Jun 8 2021 44 mins
    Nick Fitzpatrick, Antoine Colson, Christian Edelmann, Whitney Lutgen, Jim Strang
    The ‘retailisation’ of private equity funds is becoming debated more and more as investment advisers and their clients seek to gain the same diversification and growth opportunities that large institutional investors can enjoy through allocations to ‘alternative’ assets. This webinar will focus on the barriers and the solutions to make this a reality.
    In a year when Brussels is reviewing the ‘AIFMD’ rules that apply to the marketing of alternative assets, could this be an opportunity to create the right regulatory framework for private equity’s expansion to retail investors? Might the EU’s so-far unloved ELTIF structure provide a solution? In the UK, could leveraging the investment trust structure also be an answer there? And then there is technology, such as tokenisation; might the digital revolution lead to important operational solutions?
