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

Mobey Forum’s Guide to Risk Management in Mobile Financial Services

This webinar is based on the Mobey Forum’s report, the first of two parts, and uses a standardised risk management approach to provide financial institutions with an overview of risk management in MFS, relative to the mobile device environment. To assist with risk evaluation it describes the identified threats and classifies them into twelve categories. An analysis of the risk level is then provided for each category based upon likelihood of its occurrence together with its anticipated impact.

The report contends that one of the highest risks still resides with the end user, the customer. Techniques that target the person rather than the device, such as social engineering and phishing, are often used by criminals to gain (sensitive) information that enables subsequent attacks to be launched, leading to fraud. Impersonation of the customer during the registration for or installation of a mobile financial service or during the mobile financial service transaction itself is also highlighted and examined.

Mobey Forum is now developing a second accompanying report, providing guidance to financial institutions on mitigation measures and best practices to reduce the risks identified.

  • What to Do When an Investment Strategy Performs Poorly Oct 29 2020 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Larry Swedroe, Chief Research Officer, Buckingham Strategic Wealth
    In recent years, US stocks have far outperformed international stocks. Growth stocks have far outperformed value stocks. This has led to question the benefits of diversification and ask what they should do when an investment strategy performs poorly.

    The goal of this talk is to answer that very question: what should you do about poor performance? We will discuss the value of patience and how the all-too-human problems of recency bias, relativism and engaging leads many investors to abandon well-thought out plans.

    - Growth stocks led the way.
    - Black swans are more common than we think.

    - Most strategies move in sync under stress.

    Part 2. Best practices to overcome common pitfalls: 15 minutes

    - Multi-asset and ability to go Long and short.
    - Incorporate many uncorrelated factors with examples.
    - Incorporate cross asset relationships with examples.
    - Control directionality and control leverage in line with market volatility.

  • Regime Change: the importance of re-thinking portfolio construction Oct 28 2020 11:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Chris Marshall, Head of Investment Strategy, Dragon Investment Managers
    The Global Pandemic has acted as catalyst for rapid change around the world. Business models, social norms, spending habits and outlooks have all been tested. Additionally a new co-ordination of fiscal and monetary policy has also been unleashed on the world, leading to a landscape with greater government intervention in market functioning and support. The culmination of these factors will have an unrelenting impact on virtually all investable asset classes: a result of the changing and manipulated market environment.

    During this presentation, Chris Marshall, Head of Investment Strategy at Dragon IM, will walk through some of the changes that need to be considered at the asset allocation level, along with a look back through history to uncover how key assets have an inbuilt economic bias to key environments, and how these can be used to optimise tactical and strategic allocations.
  • The Subsidiaries Concept: An Investment Strategy for Emerging Market Equities Oct 28 2020 10:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Marc Girault, Portfolio Manager, HMG Finance
    For equity investors keen to tap into long-term Emerging Market economic growth, but wary of the increased risks, we offer a possible solution: ‘The Subsidaries Concept’ – investing solely in listed ‘subsidiaries’ of developed market companies operating in Emerging Markets.

    How do we define a subsidiary? We do not apply the strict accounting definition of a subsidiary to our concept, although most of the companies we invest in do adhere to this. The concept includes companies with a licensing or distribution agreement with a Developed Market company, or a company listed on a Developed Market that operates predominantly in the Emerging World. What is important to us is whether the company receives Developed Market oversight, and benefits materially from its relationship.

    How big is this investment universe? We have discovered over 800 subsidiaries, well diversified by region and sector, with a combined market cap of over USD 2,000 billion – as big as many stock markets throughout the world.

    Why invest in subsidiaries?

    - Developed market levels of governance: this reduces risks and provides huge ESG benefits.
    - Commercial advantages: these are world-renowned companies with a history of profitable overseas expansion – their subsidiaries benefit from the technology, brand and experience that made their parents a household name.
    - Focused on their local market: parents will set their subsidiaries up to sell goods and services domestically, typically only focused on one industry – this allows us to gain exposure to individual sectors within the economies that interest us.
    - Income: without specifically targeting income, our Global Emerging Markets Fund has consistently yielded over 4% - a natural side-effect of the subsidiaries concept.
    - When adding all of these factors together we are able to take a long-term view, accessing the fast-growing economies of the Emerging World in a long-term, sustainable, risk-averse way.

    Towards the SDGs: The Importance of Collaboration
  • Working to Bridge the Financing Gap in Developing Economies Sep 29 2020 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Paul Ellis, Moderator; Martina Macpherson, Moody's; Jason Mitchell, Man Group and Charulata Singal, UNCDF
    When small businesses in developing economies need additional capital to continue growing, they typically face a finance gap. Martina Macpherson of Moody's Corp ESG Solutions Group, Jason Mitchell of Man Group, and Charulata Singal of United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) discuss how investors in developing economies are working with data analytics firms and asset managers to address both the risk and the many opportunities for growth in these economies and for companies with exposure to local entities through their value and supply chains. When UNCDF engages with local enterprises in frontier markets, it builds depth into these markets and nurtures more bankable deal flow, ultimately acting like a project preparatory facility for Development Finance Institutions (DFI) and other commercial investors. Developing these kinds of cross-sector collaborations and public-private partnerships are also fundamental for establishing environmental and social resilience and long term prosperity in line with Agenda 2030.
  • Community Update: IM Q3 Recorded: Sep 24 2020 33 mins
    Ryan Ross, BrightTALK
    The Investment Management industry has been irreversibly affected by COVID-19. As the fund management, marketing, and talent operations strategies are being re-thought, how have investment management marketers reacted? This webinar will bring together key marketing thought leaders to discuss:

    Content ideas:

  • Quant funds in sustainable investing: the litmus test Recorded: Sep 10 2020 56 mins
    Andre Breedt, Research Associate, Capital Fund Management
    The corpus of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) literature, and the proliferation of ESG-inspired investment vehicles has increased at an astonishing rate. However, the amount of ESG research related to, and responsible investment (RI) funds reliant on quantitative investment (‘quant’) strategies has done so much more slowly. Some still claim that quants are unable to navigate non-linear market developments – the likes of which ESG integration practices are likely to accelerate – and, that the use of shorting is incompatible with RI.

    But, with quant strategies and ESG two of the fastest growth areas within the asset management industry, and investors evermore savvy and interested in both, we believe that the investment landscape is likely to be altered by their continued, and collective development.

    During this session we will cover:

    • Why did RI take longer to become relevant to quant funds?
    • What do we use ESG data for, and what are the remaining challenges?
    • Is the practice of shorting completely compatible with RI? And…
    • …do our short positions have a symmetrical impact to our longs? Moreover…
    • …do our longs have a societal impact, even when they are built with derivatives?
    • Will ESG ever dissolve into business as usual?

    Finally, the session will conclude in discussion about the organisational challenges of ESG integration for a quant fund, from raising awareness and creating buy-in at firm level, to shifting the perception of investors and the investment community about the compatibility of ESG and quantitative investment strategies.

    The session will conclude in asking the simple question: “What are we ultimately trying to achieve: are we acting based on values; considering risk and opportunities; or targeting societal outcomes?”

  • Social value as a driver of change: time to explore 'S' of ESG Recorded: Sep 10 2020 35 mins
    Dr. Eime Tobari, Social Value Strategist / Director, COCREATIF Limited
    ESG, responsible/impact investing and shared value approach are on the rise. This is partly driven by the increased awareness of Climate Change and material financial risks associated with it in the investment world. Whilst this movement certainly started to create a flow of financial capital into businesses addressing environmental sustainability issues, some are criticised for so-called ‘green washing’ – using ESG reporting to gain traction but not making real contributions. In the meantime, some investors are beginning to extend their attentions to broader social issues such as wellbeing, equality and poverty.

    In the real estate market, these trends have only started to emerge and the potential of such approaches for the industry, especially beyond the environmental aspect, is yet to be explored. The benefit of values-driven, purpose-driven approaches to the overall business performance is already widely known. The challenge facing the industry now is how to make sure well-intended investment results in actual contributions to social, economic and environmental sustainability.

    In this webinar with Social Value Strategist Dr. Eime Tobari, Director of COCREATIF Limited, participants will learn:

    · How to identify untapped opportunities to enhance the overall performance of real estate and infrastructure investment
    · How to operationalise effectively unlocking of such opportunities
    · How to make sure wider benefits for the business performance are achieved
  • Country ESG Analysis and Integration in Sovereign Debt Recorded: Sep 10 2020 49 mins
    Max Schieler, Executive Director - Senior SI Country Analyst, RobecoSAM
    Probably more than any other crisis in recent history the outbreak and rapid spread of the coronavirus pandemic has cast a glaring light on the intricate interdependencies and weaknesses between natural, human, social, political and economic systems in today’s globalized world. But already before public attention was grabbed by the health risks of a highly infectious disease, the global risk landscape has increasingly become dominated by ESG issues with environmental concerns like climate change taking center stage.

    COVID-19 also comes as an abrupt reminder that in today’s closely interlinked world, a decent analysis of ESG factors is imperative for a comprehensive assessment of a country’s underlying vulnerability and resilience. The swift and damaging toll of the pandemic has demonstrated the value of favorable health and living conditions for maintaining social, political, and economic stability within a country. It has also become obvious that good governance and well-functioning institutions play an important role in a country’s capacity to cope with such crisis, mitigate socio-political disturbance and reduce economic fallout. Hence, an extensive analysis of a country’s ESG characteristics is needed more than ever to allow investors to detect a country’s true risk-reward pattern.

    In this session we will cover:

    - Why it is important to consider ESG factors in country risk analysis
    - How a country’s ESG profile is linked with sovereign ratings, CDS spreads and SDGs
    - How a country’s ESG characteristics can be integrated into Fixed Income

    Participants will get an insight in Robeco/RobecoSAM’s approach for country ESG analysis, how it is being applied in practice and its integration into the investment process.
