ESG Investing: Drivers of the Shift Towards Sustainable Financial Markets

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.

    Investors seeking alternative investments are exposed to more risk than regular investments. Especially in the high-touch art world, having a professional advise on the intricacies of the industry is critical to investing.

    This webinar will discuss questions from our previous webinar:

    How long does it take for an 'outsider' become an 'insider'? Where to start?

    What drives appetite to invest in art? how much is emotion, i.e. "I like this piece of art", and how much is rational analysis of the art?

    What types of art are being bought besides Images, and who are they being bought by? Like Sculptures in Cities?

    I'm inclined to believe that "collecting" can be confused with "hoarding". The difference is SHOWCASING. Is this accurate? What is the difference?

    Are there any major collectors opening Museums? or using VR to share their art with the world?

    Over the next 30 years, the demographic makeup of societies will change tremendously. What effect will this have on income investment funds? Will people retire later, thus driving up the demand for Income Funds? What effect will interest rates and other factors have on people's desire to choose an income fund vs. a fund that reinvests its assets? Further, as investment preferences change, how will funds adapt to these preferences and drive market share?

    This webinar panel will dive into:
    - how will demographic changes drive demand for Income Funds around the world?
    - How will fund companies need to adapt in order to anticipate these change?

  • Panel Discussion - Strategies of Income Funds Recorded: Sep 10 2019 63 mins
    Kandarp Acharya, Wells Capital Management | Justin Simler | Etienne Vincent, BNP Paribas AM | Ewan McAlpine, RLAM
    Multi asset income funds have seen increasing interest as companies need better returns on cash; schemes become cash flow negative and individuals seek income in retirement. There are, however, many different approaches to generating an income including both fixed income and multi asset income approaches. These can have a focus on synthetic or natural income, and very different targets for income, capital growth and protection.

    This webinar will discuss topics that include:

    Is the demand for income likely to persist?
    Should income even matter?
    What is a sustainable level of income?
    What are the strengths and drawbacks of the different approaches?
    What are the risks of an income portfolio and how do you manage them?

  • How to build a culture of of growth marketing in the financial services industry Recorded: Aug 27 2019 52 mins
    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
