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

Information Security – Getting IFAs Ahead of the Game!

You should never underestimate the value of the information that you are responsible for protecting and although we don’t think it, our client and business information is an asset like any other therefore it is essential that we all put the protocols and processes in place to safely and securely collect it, use it, store it and destroy it!

Failure to appreciate the importance and relevance of this will result in you being a prime target for computer-assisted fraud, espionage and computer hacking.

Financial planners remain constantly under threat from many sources. These can be internal, external, accidental, or malicious and with the increased use of new technology to store, transmit, and retrieve information, we are all open to increased numbers and types of threats.

A simple unintentional act of negligence could set your firm back with a hefty fine, not to mention the reputational damage a business could incur. Simple steps can be taken to protect information from a wide range of threats in order to ensure business continuity, minimise business risk, and maximise return on investments and business opportunities.

This presentation will hear from Michelle Hoskin as she shares the 14 point check plan on how you can meet your information security obligations whilst keeping a tighter ship for the benefit of the business and the clients.

    Igor Tsukerman, President & CIO, Passed Pawn Advisors
    As ETF market in the US continues to grow, where do the issuers find new niches? Find out what’s been attracting investments, where the growth is, what is new and what is coming. We will look at some themes and trends in the markets – economic, demographic, geopolitical, regulatory and technological – and see what ETF issuance can tell us about the next big thing in investing. We’ll also focus on smart beta, as well as many factors driving demand and supply, such as ETF costs, regulation, innovation and fintech.
  • Smart Beta: Growth, Development, and Sustainability of an Asset Class. Feb 13 2019 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Justin Simler | Christopher Peel | Nicholas Rabener | Jean-Maurice Ladure
    The adoption rates of smart beta among asset owners rose from 26% in 2015 to 48% in 2018 according to the FTSE Russell survey on smart beta. The growth in assets has been similarly impressive and according to Morningstar smart beta assets under management grew from USD 280bn at the end of 2012 to USD 999bn at the end of 2017. One of the key secondary effects of this significant growth is to put continued pressure on the margins of actively managed products.

    The main purpose of the panel discussion will be to understand the reasons behind this runaway growth, how smart beta is developing and whether this growth is sustainable. The panelists will present their views on issues such as:
    - whether smart beta is the same as factor investing
    - how they decompose this broad universe
    - the role of smart beta in new areas such as bond investing and even hedge fund or
    - private equity investing
    - how ESG can be applied to smart beta investing
    - the ability to market time between ‘factors’

  • 2019 predictions - Global Macro and Markets Movements to Watch Feb 12 2019 10:00 pm UTC 59 mins
    Justin Simler, Chris Watling, Lothar Mentel, Lars Kreckel
    This has been a highly extended global economic cycle led by the US. Its longevity has been due to a number of factors including unorthodox monetary policy, fiscal stimulus and an absence of the exuberance that typically precedes a market reversal. The panellists will debate which factors are likely to drive markets over the next 12 months. They will cover key issues such as:

    * The underlying strength of the US economy and the timing, and potential causes, of recession

    * Evidence of inflationary pressure and the consequent impact on economies and markets of any reduction in liquidity

    * Whether the downtrend in labour’s share of income is likely to reverse

    * The outlook for the US dollar and the emerging markets

    The panellists will discuss what the market currently discounts and how their views differ from this consensus. They will give their views on the asset allocation and style, region and sector exposures that are likely to offer the best (and worst) combination of risk and reward in this environment. They will finish by suggesting their own possible surprises for 2019. These are outcomes which the market believes have no better than a one in four chance but which the panellists believe have a probability of 50% or more.

  • Modern Strategies for Investing in Global Emerging Markets Recorded: Dec 28 2018 51 mins
    Katja Boerger | Navaneeth Satheesan , Envestnet | Ryan Ross, BrightTALK
    Emerging markets are in a paradox right now. They are seeing tremendous growth yet have debt denominated In a strong dollar, which threatens to halter their growth and thus ability to pay back their debts. They have more ways than ever to trade, yet are suffering from trade wards.

    What are good strategies to take advantage of this situation?

    This panel will join leading emerging market participants to discuss:

    - Which emerging markets will benefit from the potential political & economic outcomes of the next 18 months
    - How to think about where opportunities lie in chaos.

  • [Panel] How to Integrate ESG as part of a successful asset mix Recorded: Dec 27 2018 63 mins
    Richard Lightbound, Meryam Omi, Justin Simler, Adrie Heinsbroek
    A few years ago "ESG” was just a page at the back of a presentation. Today it has achieved greater prominence with new initiatives such as impact investing and the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals. However, questions still remain about what ESG integration really means and whether the increasing use of frameworks and questionnaires is distracting from engagement.

    This expert panel will look at what ESG integration means and at the practical implementation of ESG considerations within portfolios. They will discuss whether ESG can be implemented, at best, without negatively impacting returns or whether there is recent evidence that it can actually benefit both risk and return.

    While impact investing dominates the headlines, most of the assets that firms manage on behalf of their clients integrate an assessment of ESG factors into their process but do not tilt towards sustainable investments. The panel will discuss this issue and the likely future trends in ESG investment including how ESG fits in with the Mega trends defined by the PRI or WEF.

  • Managing Risks when Investing in Turbulent Times Recorded: Dec 19 2018 46 mins
    John Redwood, Chief Global Strategist, Charles Stanley
    People with savings want to earn a decent return without running too much risk. Some have saved out of their earnings, some have built up capital in a business which they sell, some have inherited some money. None of them want to throw it away. In an era of ultra-low interest rates just putting it in a bank means the value of your capital goes down each year, as prices are rising faster than the return on a deposit. That’s why many conclude they do need to take some more risk, to own some shares and bonds that offer a higher income but can also go down in value.

    Investment managers need to maximise return for a given level of risk, and need to construct portfolios so not everything goes down at the same time if things do go wrong. This talk will examine how you spread your risks, and argues that over the longer term buying a portfolio of shares usually delivers a return above inflation, with a rising income from increasing dividends. Managers also are able to choose from a range of different countries with different currencies for their shares, and to look at the opportunities in commercial property as well. That can help find the right mix of return and risks.
