  • Sustainable Investing Across Asset Classes: Crafting An Outcomes-Based Portfolio Oct 30 2019 4:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    tbc
    This webinar looks at how asset managers are deploying various asset classes to solve the sustainable development goals. While public equity is certainly a popular choice, other choices like fixed income instruments, and alternative investments are being employed in the quest for out-comes based investing. Our panel will answer questions such as:

    - What kinds of returns and risks are being seen across the asset classes?
    - Which asset managers are focused on which asset classes?
    - Can cross-asset class frameworks be used, or does each asset class deserve its own framework for success?

    - Methods of valuing ESG
    - Benefits of applying ESG decision frameworks to your portfolios
    - How Pension funds look at potential investments

    Jon Pittham. MD ClientsFirst
    In a post GDPR world, top of the funnel traditional direct marketing isn't a viable option for financial services firms. Data is more regulated, targeting is more limited and a broad approach is a strategy that will likely fail.

    Instead it's time to focus on a strategy that will attract, convert and delight engaged clients. This strategy is Growth Marketing. In this webinar we focus on how to turn your marketing culture from top of the funnel to a growth marketing culture where every stage of the funnel counts.

    Other key takeaways include:

    - Aligning your marketing goals into creating inbound opportunities which allows your firm to grow
    - How to use the inbound model to not only create more leads, but turn these leads into delighted brand ambassadors
    - How content is the new data when it comes to creating successful modern growth marketing campaigns
    - Using technology and automation to streamline your marketing

  • AI for Regulatory Change... why, what and how? Recorded: Aug 21 2019 46 mins
    Elliot Burgess, Head of Product, CUBE
    Since the financial markets collapse of 2008, the financial services sector has been engulfed in new rules and regulations. Compliance teams must track regulatory data, and assess the impact of every regulatory requirement, to avoid breaches and punitive enforcement fines.

    With 45 new regulatory documents to deal with every week, and more than 53,000 regulatory updates issued every year, manual approaches to monitoring regulatory intelligence and managing regulatory change are putting financial services businesses at risk.

    Artificial intelligence (AI) allows you to marry human expertise with the almost limitless ability of technology to consume and analyze huge amounts of data, automate manual processes and reduce complexity. In doing so, financial institutions can leverage AI to respond to regulatory change more efficiently and effectively.


    Join regulatory change expert, and Head of Product Management at CUBE Elliot Burgess to learn

    Why AI is the only answer to addressing big data compliance challenges, at scale
    What elements of AI are driving value for Risk and Compliance teams (e.g. Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing, Robotic Process Automation)
    How regulated financial institutions are utilizing AI today to ease and accelerate regulatory change processes
  • Solutions for MIFID II: Show me the value! Recorded: Aug 21 2019 34 mins
    Steve Kenny, Director, Square Mile Research
    The regulator wants asset managers to define more clearly the value they provide to their investors. In this session, Square Mile explores what they need to consider.

    The concept of a value assessment emerged from the FCA Asset Management Market study in 2018: this proposed certain changes to the structure of open-ended funds, including the appointment of a minimum of two independent directors (making up at least 25% of the board). It also stated that fund managers should start to provide an annual assessment on ‘value’ to this newly independent board.

    Since that point, there has been considerable debate on how ‘value’ should be defined. In January/ February 2019 Square Mile and Boring Money conducted market research with the aim to provide asset managers with an independent third-party view on how to assess and measure value. We asked consumers, advisers, investment trust directors, the regulator, service providers and academics for their version of value.

    The FCA already has its version. It defined seven elements in its non-exhaustive list: quality of service, performance, general fund manager costs, economies of scale, comparable market rates, comparable services and classes of units. In our discussions with the FCA, we found that there were also a number of key questions that the FCA wanted asset managers to think about from the clients’ perspective:

    · What do I get charged?

    · Can I see what I pay for?

    · What simple indicator do I have that will tell me what this fund is trying to do and what it will achieve?

    · What are the upsides and downsides?

    · Am I paying more for a choice that I’ve made and when I’ve made that choice can I understand it?
