  • Are ‘LPs’ becoming ‘GPs’? Drivers and challenges for alternatives investing Nov 14 2018 2:30 pm UTC 75 mins
    Mark Austin and Stuart Lawson, Northern Trust; James Alexander, Accenture; Brendan Maton, IPE
    As institutional investors /pension schemes boost their exposure to alternative assets at transformational levels, they are exploring a variety of ways to access the investments. An evolving approach is to venture beyond the investor role by entering the realm of the asset manager and establishing their own investment vehicles.
    This can offer advantages such as full alignment to their requirements and greater control. Yet it also requires a high level of in-house expertise and operational considerations.

    The webcast will:

    • Examine the drivers and challenges for investment in alternative assets
    • Explore the changing relationship between ‘LPs’ and ‘GPs’
    • Outline key considerations for direct investment

    Practical Insights on the Rise of Transparency Considerations in Asset Allocation

    Investor priorities have shifted since the 2008 financial crisis, but one trend is clear: transparency has become paramount.

    As investor appetite for non-correlated assets grows apace, the volume and complexity of alternatives in their portfolios is burgeoning. In order to obtain a level of transparency similar to that available for their traditional long-only investments, they need to overcome the challenges of monitoring, valuing and reporting on this comparatively opaque and illiquid asset class.

    The webcast will:

    • Review the key findings from Northern Trust/Economist Intelligence Unit’s recent survey of 200 asset managers and institutional investors on the rise of transparency considerations in asset allocation
    • Share examples of how investors and managers are managing these considerations
    • Explore the role of data in the management process and discuss who ultimately takes responsibility for transparency

  • Department of Labor Fiduciary Rule: Where are we now? Recorded: Apr 27 2017 20 mins
    Gerry Cleary, Business Unit Risk Specialist, Northern Trust
    The final Department of Labor (DOL) Fiduciary Rule was released in April 2016, with an applicability date of April 10, 2017. The Rule redefines when a person becomes a fiduciary by providing investment advice related to retirement assets, including advice to ERISA plan fiduciaries, plan participants and IRA owners.

    In February, President Trump directed the DOL to re-examine the Rule. As a result, the DOL delayed the rule’s applicability date to June 9, 2017. Uncertainty remains about whether the Rule will be further delayed, modified or possibly even rescinded.

    Join us as we discuss the consequences and recent developments surrounding this Rule.
