    Oliver Madden | IHS Markit | Director, Securities Lending
    Securities lending best practice and meeting the expectations of the 2020 UK Stewardship Code

    The 2020 version of the UK Stewardship Code sets high expectations for how investors, and those that support them, invest and manage money on behalf of UK savers and pensioners, and how this leads to sustainable benefits for the economy, the environment and society.

    Yet in its Review of Early Reporting published on 30th September 2020 the Financial Reporting Council noted that in general signatories’ approaches to stock lending had been under-reported. This session will explore what best practice securities lending programme oversight looks like and how signatories to the Code can enhance their Code reporting to satisfy the raised expectations of the FRC.

  • Secure Your Board Data in a Remote World Recorded: Nov 17 2020 36 mins
    Robert Barham-Brown & Warren McComb, Passageways
    As part of our ‘Board Digitalisation Awareness’ campaign we have already addressed why pension schemes should incorporate technology in the board room and adopt a digitalisation process. In this presentation we will focus on the security of board data in a remote world, with a view to eliminating both data loss and data breach, which can be crippling to any organisation.

    Immediate steps need to be taken to remove the threat. Join our webinar on Tuesday 17 November at 4pm GMT to get a complete understanding of how a digital board portal, such as OnBoard, can provide the highest level of security throughout your board meeting cycle.

    The key issues we will address are:
    • Data in Transit
    What is data in transit?
    • Data at Rest
    When is data at rest?
    • Data Sovereignty
    Why data sovereignty?
    • Board Communication
    How does your Board communicate?
  • NW LIVE - Covenant challenges & pensions restructuring:- a trustee perspective Recorded: Nov 11 2020 60 mins
    Sarah Ballantyne - Dalriada Trustees
    “TPR has been encouraging trustees to take formal, external covenant advice now for more than 10 years, however this should not be just be a triennial valuation exercise, ongoing monitoring of the financial position and prospects of a pension scheme’s employer are key. Many Trustee Boards have used the uncertainties caused by the Covid-19 to request further and more regular financial information from their employer, whether easements on Deficit Repair Contributions were requested or not. This sharing of information should be continued and used to monitor and prepare for any reduction in covenant strength. In the last few weeks we have seen Covid-19 restrictions increase, with businesses facing cliff edges in government support and an undetermined outcome for Brexit there is the expectation of a sharp rise in corporate restructurings. Where there’s a threat of insolvency for the employer, trustees need to ensure that they have plans to run the scheme on a stand alone basis. By talking through a number of case studies where Dalriada has been Trustee, Sarah will demonstrate that preparation and getting the right advice can be key to getting a solution for members.”
