How Scandinavia became mobile payment champions of the world

In Norway, Sweden and Denmark we experience 65% mobile payment adoption across the whole population. A key insight is that the services offered are all app-based payments, proprietary (like AliPay) and thus eats massively into the traditional card based payments and cash. This has a huge impact on the market dynamics as customers flock to easy to use app based solutions and merchants are no longer bound to physical hardware. Contactless cards and Apple Pay has zero market share. In this talk we will hear from the experts from the market, sharing their story on how Scandinavia became mobile payment champions of the world.

  • Income investment rules and delivering income for retirees in 2021 and beyond Jan 20 2021 9:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Dan Kemp, Chief Investment Officer, EMEA at Morningstar Investment Management Europe Ltd
    Over recent years, the search for income has become increasingly challenging. Unusually low interest rates, skinny credit spreads and the concentration of dividends in cyclical businesses has led to lower and more volatile incomes that clients would like. So how can advisers best prepare clients for retirement? Have the rules of investing for income changed? Is a radically different approach now required?

    In this webinar we consider whether it is now time to revisit the timeless rules of investment. We ask which investment approach can help advisers make the most of the current opportunities and lead to a more stable return profile. The webinar will be presented by Dan Kemp CIO, EMEA of Morningstar Investment Management, a global multi asset investor with over $200 billion of assets under management focused on providing investment solutions for financial advisers.
  • Fixed income investing in this mixed up, muddled up world Jan 19 2021 10:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    JR Rieger, Bond Market Author & Speaker at Rieger Report LLC
    This discussion focuses on fixed income asset classes and funds that may provide income in a world challenged with low yields and dropping dividends, active and passive "tools" in the tool box and risks to achieving income.

    -Why use fixed income in this low yield environment? The "why" sets the stage for "how".
    -Asset classes that have incremental yield but at what risk?
    -Is active fund management better than passive "beta" exposure when taking into account the "why" and the risks?
    -Interesting new funds that are geared for income generation.
  • The Impact of Technology on Real Estate Jan 19 2021 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Danny Kattan, Managing Partner, Capital Markets at PIA Residential
    In "The Impact of Technology on Real Estate," I will discuss emerging technology that will affect various real estate asset classes. Many real estate investors are not including technological risk in their evaluations of opportunities. Having these technological advances on your radar will create an opportunity for you to assess how they will directly or indirectly impact your potential investments. The pace of the adoption of technology is much quicker than markets anticipate. We will dive into a few technologies that are colliding into each other, reinventing products, services, and industries. I will also discuss how COVID along with technological advancement will expedite the timeline for change, just as the 2008 crisis saw the birth of the "Sharing and Gig Economy" the COVID crisis will see the birth of the "Collaborative and Distance Economy."

    Key Points:

    · Residential is a much safer bet, why?
    · Geographical preferences and how they will change.
    · Technology will alter the labor pool, giving and taking jobs.
    · There are no absolutes. No asset class will disappear.
    · The effects of Autonomous Platforms, AI, 3D Printing, Batteries and Solar, VR, and other emerging tech that will affect real estate in many ways.

  • EU policy and regulations for ‘switching’ the financial system to sustainability Dec 10 2020 1:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    Anita Rahova, Project Portfolio Officer, Agrinatura EEIG
    The “Sustainability” became a symbol of world’s wealth and growth and a guiding goal for prosperity in economic and financial aspect. This evoked changes in the investment approach, which started to consider also non-financial factors such as ESG when portfolio assets allocate and manage. On the EU scene the active “switching” to sustainability is incorporating in the policies and legislative framework, accompanied by financial regulations to involve sustainable investments and private finance for supporting the achievement of the sustainable goals.

    By the growth strategy - European Green Deal, set out in December 2019, was declared the aspiring goal Europe to become “the first climate neutral continent by 2050”. This ambition commits huge public and private financial resource and priority measures towards: setting an EU sustainability taxonomy and investor duties for long-term horizons and ESG incorporation into investment decisions; reforming the disclosures; retail investors access to sustainable finance opportunities; creating standards for related financial assets, also merging the sustainability in the governance and financial supervision of the financial institutions. All priorities are under active elaboration as the first one – the Taxonomy regulation, is a fact since June 2020 and supplies with a framework to facilitate sustainable investment. Some of these tools are expected to support a 'resilient, sustainable and fair' recovery from COVID-19 pandemic.

    A theme to watch and understand, crucial for the EU and the world and driving the finance system to sustainable investments.
  • The future shape of clean water: How technology can avert a water crisis Dec 10 2020 11:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Aude Martin, ETF Investment Specialist, Legal & General Investment Management
    Ever-greater demand is combining with increasingly uneven and unreliable supply to make water one of the world’s most precious resources. On the demand side, the planet’s swelling population is not the only factor; increasing global wealth is also changing patterns of water consumption as billions more people expect to enjoy regular showers, to eat more water-intensive crops, to water their gardens, to wear fabrics that draw heavily on water for their creation, and to use electricity whose generation depends on water for cooling.

    On the supply side, climate change and shifting weather patterns are making the distribution of rain less predictable, as evidenced by the increase in both devastating floods and droughts around the world. At the same time, migration and demographic shifts are moving people away from major water sources: 1.8 billion people are expected to be living in countries or regions with absolute water scarcity, and two-thirds of the world population could be under water stress conditions, by 2025

  • Rethinking Multi-asset portfolio strategies to capture velocity changes Dec 9 2020 1:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Aymeric KALIFE, CEO, iDigital Partners & adjunct Professor at Paris Dauphine University
    The asset management industry has been facing four main challenges since the 2008 financial crisis, regarding not only alpha generation but also risk mitigation: persistent low interest rates, drastic change in volatility regimes patterns, deflationary environment and decreasing alpha, increased competition across asset managers.

    Neither active (e.g. sector rotation as diversification is dying, or options due to high cost of carry) nor passive asset management styles (due to under/over-risking patterns, too aggressive equity de-allocation vs. too slow re-equitisation, or contributions to market crash feedback loops) have significantly and consistently captured velocity changes over the past decade.

    Here we present some sound mix between fundamentals and systematic market technical indicators in order to capture velocity changes through: embedding economic and supply & demand fundamentals within systematic algorithmic passive asset management, combining “volatility control” with high quality stocks, or rule-based strategies based on trade-off between sustainable low tacking-errors vs. low costs (e.g. using VIX futures or tail risk puts).

    With respect to the three value propositions above, digital technologies are helpful for (i) securely merging huge quantities of data across different sources in a secure way (using data virtualisation), (ii) devising suitable portfolio rebalancing strategy (using multi-steps automatized back testing and stress tests across a wide range of patterns and stress tests); (iii) selecting sustainable investment and hedging assets, and managing semi-static hedging and liquidity issues (using big data, artificial intelligence, non-linear market impact modelling and “optimal control”).
  • Active Investing via Passive ETFs Dec 9 2020 11:00 am UTC 43 mins
    John Leiper, Head of Portfolio Management, Tavistock
    Tavistock Wealth is a leader in the ETF asset management industry with a track record approaching 6-years – “one of the longest in the world” to the best of our knowledge.

    ETFs have become increasingly popular over the last few years and their unique characteristics make them ideal for top-down, asset allocation driven investing. Which is what we do.

    We adopt a top-down view of the world. This allows us to determine the broad macroeconomic and geopolitical trends that drive markets. We then allocate risk as appropriate around the globe and across asset classes including equity and bond ETFs and commodity ETCs via a mixture of traditional market cap weighted indices as well as smart beta strategies.

    In addition, our ESG range adheres to a best-in-class environmental, social, governance investment policy which is a data-driven framework designed to distinguish between ESG leaders and laggards.
