Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

The Ultimate Wake Up Call

Cancer is part of our lives now but proportion of cancers cured is increasing too - currently about 70 per cent. Treatment is very expensive. Each round of chemo drugs costs thousands of pounds and radio therapy machines can cost millions. Irony is that this is a result of better healthcare as we are living longer.

There is a vast support network of charities offering discussions, support groups and fund raising. Some provide care, some do research, some provide cancer information and there are some that provide benefits advice too. There is currently not much dedicated financial advice out there.

If a client has cancer or maybe a friend has, the best thing is to listen. A financial health check or personal balance sheet is also a good start.

Join George Emsden presenting his advice on supporting clients with cancer, by clicking attend below.

George has found an interesting niche in financial services after getting throat cancer in 2007. Other IFAs, solicitors, accountants and word of mouth bring clients who have the dreaded Big C or other serious illnesses now come to George for advice.

Quite often, people just want someone to listen to them. Last thing they want or need is a lecture. The level of ignorance around pensions for example, is sad and where pension funds are concerned.

Sometimes the advice needed is not regulated advice e.g. benefits advice, so George points people to the other resources that are out there. Otherwise it is plain commonsense which is very easy to overlook when you have just been given some very hard news.

  • ESG Investing: Drivers of the Shift Towards Sustainable Financial Markets Recorded: Jun 6 2019 61 mins
    Franita Neuville, CFA, Investment & Advisory Market Development Manager, Refinitiv
    The investment research market has not changed much over the last 40 years but there is a notable shift underway. One of the factors which will be reshaping the investment research landscape over the next 5 to 10 years, is the increased adoption of the use of alternative data in the investment decision making process which is being enabled by the information explosion currently underway globally.

    Environmental, Social and Governance data is probably one of the best-known and widely-used alternative datasets globally and investors are integrating it into their investment decision making process so that they can become better investors to achieve stronger, long-term returns.

    Investors are using active ownership to persuade companies to clean-up their act. Globally we are seeing a shift to Responsible and Sustainable Investment (RI/SI) models and investors are focusing more on their stakeholder responsibility by being engaged owners, or even activist owners in some cases. Sustainable development goals are becoming an integrated part of asset managers’ and owners’ strategies and communications as they place more importance on their societal responsibility of investing responsibly and sustainably.

    In this presentation, we will be showing how drivers such as client demand, regulation, the transfer of wealth and climate change are driving the shift towards sustainable financial and economic markets. We will also look at how ESG investing is being incorporated by asset managers and owners, from using it as an input in the investment decision making process, to incorporating it as a key part of a company’s strategy.

    ESG is no longer just a conversational topic being driven by activist groups, it is now also seriously being incorporated by global money management firms and is set to become a key part of the global investment industry.
