    In this Webinar, leading experts will discuss which asset classes are attractive, what role alternative investment techniques lay in the management of multi-asset portfolios. They will also share ways they identify where volatility will come from, and the macro movements (elections, regulations) that will affect the market in the next 6 months.

  • [PANEL] Multi-Asset: How Solving Client Problems is Crucial to Raising Assets May 9 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Gabriel Altbach, Florian Schneider, Scott Brady, Peter Greenberger
    “Multi-asset” and “Solutions” have been some of the industry’s biggest buzzwords over the last few years, and for good reason: multi-asset vehicles have generated record sales and clients around the world continue to challenge their providers - both asset and wealth managers - to offer solutions to their problems rather than simply push products.

    In this panel discussion, we will dissect what’s driving the recent growth in multi-asset products and what the future holds given the many challenges facing the industry

    This webinar will cover topics such as:
    * What are the key innovations in the multi-asset arena currently and in the future?
    * How can asset and wealth managers partner to ensure clients are receiving the best possible outcomes?
    * What role does passive play in the multi-asset arena? Alternatives?
    * How do wealth managers evaluate asset managers’ multi-asset products, and what are their unmet needs?

    After this webinar, listeners will leave with solid ideas, tactics, and a vision on how to optimize their multi-asset strategy to meet client needs, be on the cutting edge of innovation, and protect and grow their assets and overall business.

  • Multi-Asset Investing – A Focus on Alternative Risk Premia (ARP) May 9 2018 12:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Joan Lee, Investment Manager (Multi-Asset), in Unigestion
    The popularity of alternative risk premia (ARP) is growing and strategies that focus on ARP are increasingly being incorporated into portfolios. The attraction of this approach is that ARP can mimic strategies that have historically only been available through hedge fund vehicles, but with more favourable liquidity and cost characteristics, whilst retaining a low correlation to traditional equities and bonds.

  • Redefining Profit: Harmonising the Rules of Business with the Laws of Nature Recorded: Apr 19 2018 64 mins

  • Investment Consultants: The Final Frontier for Responsible Investment Recorded: Apr 19 2018 42 mins
    Will Martindale, Head of Policy, Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI)
    Investment consultants advise on the investment practices of trillions of dollars worldwide. They are a recognised source of authority and knowledge. However, most consultants and their asset owner clients are failing to consider environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues in investment practice – despite a growing evidence base that demonstrates the financial materiality of ESG issues to portfolio value.
    There currently seems little commercial imperative for investment consultants to extend the coverage of ESG integrated services among their clients. Nor do we see pension schemes demanding ESG integrated services from their consultants. In too many cases, consultants and their clients simply don’t talk about ESG issues.
    In this session, we will discuss the barriers and solutions with a view to maximising the global SRI opportunity.
  • [Panel]: Evaluating Profitable Strategies in Sustainable Investing Recorded: Apr 19 2018 61 mins
    Paul Ellis, Jeffrey Gitterman, Benjamin Yeoh, My-Linh Ngo
    “Doing well by doing good” is catchy, but it was often seen as a nice to have rather than a requirement. Sustainable Investing was a popular thing to say your firm does, but it was often seen as a “side dish” to real investments. This perception is changing, yet there is still work to be done. The challenge remains: How can ESG & Sustainable Investing create profit?

    This panel will features leading experts in ESG & Sustainable Investing that will explain why ESG & Sustainable Investing is profitable, share profitable strategies across asset classes, and explain how to implement at your organisation.

    This session will provide you with an appreciation of the history of ESG & Sustainable Investing, understand the challenges inherent in investing, and ideas on how to create profitable investment strategies.

  • Beyond Impact: Essential Tools for Investing in the Sustainable Transition Recorded: Apr 19 2018 44 mins
    Erik Breen, Director of SRI, Triodos Investment Management

  • Cracking the ESG Code: Doing the Math from an Investors Perspective Recorded: Apr 19 2018 37 mins
    Elias Porse and Hugo Fredriksson
    As ESG performance has grown significantly in importance for companies and asset managers in recent years, it's time to look at the numbers.

    Is ESG screening a worthwhile tool? In a word, yes!

    High ESG focus contributes to risk mitigation and in this session, we will share with you our research which shows that this is also mirrored in strong operational and share price performance. We will also share how predictive attributes (e.g future earnings stability and share price volatility) suggest that ESG research belongs in company valuation.

    This live session (with Q&A) will give you insight into why we believe that companies and investors simply cannot afford not to care.

  • How ESG Affects Equity Valuation, Risk and Performance Recorded: Apr 18 2018 42 mins
    Guido Giese, Executive Director, Equity Applied Research, MSCI
    Guido Giese will explore the results of a recent MSCI study that found a statistically significant causal link between ESG and performance. The research, which examined 10 years of live ESG Ratings data of over 1,600 stocks, found that ESG affected the valuation and performance of companies both through their systematic risk profile (lower costs of capital and higher valuations) and their idiosyncratic risk profile (higher profitability and lower exposures to tail risk), and that changes in a company's ESG characteristics (ESG momentum) may be a useful financial indicator in its own right.

  • How To Ease The Route Of The Committed Shareholder Recorded: Apr 18 2018 48 mins
    Emmanuelle Choukroun & Pierre Colladon - Societe Generale Securities Services (SGSS)
    Greater shareholder participation in general meetings is key in order to have an influence on externalities such as the fight against climate change, pollution, social issues and governance.

    The European regulator observes that there is still a lot to do to improve the quality of decisions taken at general meetings including:

    * Greater implication of institutional investors
    * Greater transparency of proxy voting agencies
    * Better identification of shareholders by securities services
    * Generalization of the “say on pay” for issuers

    In this webinar, we will discuss what new obligations there are and how they push for better governance.
