Innovation & Sustainability - Identifying market leading companies of the future

Innovation is fast becoming synonymous with sustainable development objectives of companies. The speed of change is rapid, and we anticipate a decade of significant change,

A number of dominant themes are already emerging; digitalisation, cleaner energy, electrification and hyper connectivity. Numerous companies are embracing these themes, enabling new ways of organising our economies and promoting greater efficiency and circularity.

In this two-part series, Hamish Chamberlayne, Head of Global Sustainable Equity, and Tim Brown, Senior Product Specialist explore:

• The key drivers leading rapid economic change and how companies are evolving to embrace this new dynamic
• The importance of identifying companies that have a positive impact on society and the environment and avoiding those industries that pose significant transition risk
• The relevance of integrating both traditional financial and ESG analysis into investment decision making and how it applies to the ‘Triple bottom-line’ approach
• Why active investing, engagement, better investment outcomes and better Environmental & Social outcomes go together
• How transparency and reporting are fundamental to monitoring results and outcomes

  • A New Era for Retirement Income Advice: Part 6 - The Review Process Nov 5 2020 10:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Martin Lines, Business Development Director, Just
    What should a client review look like? Here we’ll take you through a number of ideas as well as industry guidance to show how to review a client’s on a regular basis. Here, we’ll take you through a process and emphasise the key regulatory points that firms need to make sure are covered. Ultimately, it’s all about good client outcomes. The same focus that was placed on the initial advice should be given to reviewing the plan and reassessing the objectives. There are a number of key areas to explore here. Planning for retirement and into later life goes further than just the financial elements and includes considering ‘non-pension’ areas such as the need for care and the appointment of attorneys. The regulator also expects firms to have a consumer vulnerability policy in place. Whilst vulnerability isn’t limited to those in later life, research shows that there tend to be some elements that present themselves more as people get older. So there is a lot to factor in.

    Learning Objectives:
    1. Examine the key factors in a review process
    2. Discuss key industry guidance on good practice relating to pension reviews
    3. Understand the regulatory principles pertaining to pension reviews
    4. Recognise the impact of health and ageing
    5. Examine the key facets of a consumer vulnerability policy
  • Taxing time for clients?….Financial Planning Thoughts Triggered by the Pandemic Nov 4 2020 1:00 pm UTC 90 mins
    Kirsty Anderson, Pension Business Development Manager, Prudential
    We all know too well the impact the pandemic has had – on individuals and businesses alike. There’s no arguing whatsoever that these have been some tough times. And for many, that’s meant hardship and cutting back, particularly for the younger generations.

    For some however, particularly the older generation, they’ve continued to save and in some cases have increased their wealth. This session will look at how both your clients and your business have been affected in recent months. But more importantly we’ll remind ourselves of the key principles of tax planning and why, for some, it’s more important than ever to get this right.

    It’s likely you’ll find yourself with some clients who have dialled down drawdown income and are accessing income from other assets. You may have clients who find themselves in a situation of helping other family members – for example perhaps by encashing a bond earlier than planned. Is this an opportunity for more holistic tax planning – can you help them to mitigate or remove any tax liability by making a pension contribution or assessing these tax wrappers?

    Following the session you will be able to demonstrate an understanding of:

    • The environmental impact the pandemic has had on clients and businesses alike
    • Tax relief principles and how they work
    • How making a pension contribution can mitigate or remove a client’s tax liability.
  • Change your Questions, Change your Life Nov 4 2020 11:00 am UTC 75 mins
    Amyr Rocha Lima, Holland, Hahn & Wills
    Asking questions and listening to the client’s stories is big part of being a financial planner. But excelling in this endeavour requires a unique set of skills led by a mixture of intellectual curiosity, compassion, empathy and wonder.

    In this POWER webinar, Amyr Rocha Lima will share a questioning framework that gets to the heart of your clients (instead of their heads).

    After all, knowing how to ask good, open-ended questions will encourage clients to open up about their aspirations and will help you connect with them on a personal level.

    During this session you will:

    1. Discover more about how open-ended questions help engage your clients.
    2. Learn the importance of listening and how we can hone this skill to get the best out of others and ourselves.
    3. Gain an understanding about ways you can maintain the kind of curiosity that drives an epic first meeting.
    4. Determine how you can build rapport quickly with your prospects.

  • Supporting Vulnerable Clients - is your approach right? Oct 30 2020 11:00 am UTC 90 mins
    Jan Holt, Strategic Relationship Manager, Scottish Widows
    Synopsis:
    The FCA estimates that almost 50% of us display one or more characteristics that signal potential vulnerability. Because of Covid-19, they also expect to see more customers in vulnerable circumstances – many newly vulnerable, and many with multiple drivers.

    With protecting vulnerable consumers a key priority for the FCA, now might be a good time to consider and sense check your approach to ensuring good outcomes for your vulnerable clients.

    We’ll soon have final guidance from the regulator to ensure the fair treatment of vulnerable customers.

    In this session, we’ll discuss the key indicators of vulnerability and share our thoughts on how best to create good outcomes for those in vulnerable circumstances.

    We will also look at the draft guidance and what it can mean for you and your clients. During the webinar Jan will cover the following learning objectives:
    • What vulnerability is and how it can result in client detriment
    • How you might identify vulnerability within your client base
    • What you can do to best support those in vulnerable situations

  • Pensions & Divorce Oct 29 2020 10:00 am UTC 90 mins
    Craig Muir, Senior Intermediary Development & Technical Manager, Royal London
    Whilst divorce rates have fallen over the last 25 years, the proportion of divorcees over age 60 has followed an upward trend. Within these older age groups it’s not unusual to find that the majority of the pension assets are held mainly by one party (usually the husband), and at the same time retirement planning is likely to be higher up in their financial priorities.

    In July 2019 the Pension Advisory Group published “A Guide to the Treatment of Pensions on Divorce” with input from judges, solicitors, barristers and financial experts. It’s expected this guide will become the “go to” document for professionals working in this area, so throughout the presentation we explore the content to uncover best practice.

    Consideration is given to the new term PODE (Pension on Divorce Expert), what they do, skills required to be a PODE and the role an adviser who is not a PODE can still play in the process. Given the Resolution body has previously estimated the Divorce & Separation market to be worth £500m p.a., it’s likely to be an area some advisers will wish to investigate further.

    We identify the main options in financial remedies, offsetting, attachment & pension sharing, and common issues that arise when trying to value pension assets for these purposes.

    Learning objectives:

    By the end of this session you’ll be able to:
    • Understand how pensions fit within the divorce process
    • Explain the role of financial advisers and PODE’s in the divorce process.
    • Understand the factors influencing the valuation of pension assets on divorce.
    • An understanding of the options available for pensions in a divorce settlement, and their advantages and disadvantages.
  • Building Sustainable Lasting Legacies Oct 28 2020 1:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Harry Donoghue, Strategic Partnership Manager, TIME Investments
    As every adviser knows, no two clients are the same. In the context of legacy planning, it is important to gain a true understanding of client’s individual beliefs, values and aspirations. For some clients, the primary focus for legacy planning may be to ensure that as much wealth as possible passes on to their loved ones. Others may be looking to use their investment power to make a wider positive impact on the world.

    In the context of leaving a legacy, Business Relief (BR) investment services can offer a dual benefit. They provide a fast and flexible method of leaving a tax efficient financial legacy, and can also provide a direct route to sustainable investments.

    This session will take a deep dive into how BR solutions can provide both benefits. The sustainable investment sectors within our BR service will be explained and analysed. The session will also provide the audience with an in-depth understanding of what planning options exist to help clients protect and maintain a financial legacy. Consideration will be given to how financial planners can work effectively with professional connections when building sustainable, lasting legacies.

    Learning Objectives:
    - Using coaching skills and techniques to help clients uncover their own personal and financial legacy aspirations.
    - Consider the importance that is being placed on sustainable investments and appreciate how Business Relief can provide a sustainable legacy.
    - Understand where wills and trusts can be used most effectively in legacy planning.
    - Consider how planners can work effectively with professional connections to grow your business and create sustainable legacies for clients.

  • Are You Building A Business Or Creating A Lifestyle? Recorded: Oct 27 2020 59 mins
    Brett Davidson, FP Advance
    Are you really building a business? Or are you creating a lifestyle for you and your family? Sometimes this feels like the million-dollar question to which there’s no right or wrong answer. But, you absolutely must know which one you’re trying to create. Failing to decide feels like standing on a cracked iceberg, with your feet slowly moving in different directions.

    Learning Objectives:

    - Discover the most important question to ask yourself when choosing between ‘business’ and ‘lifestyle’

  • A New Era for Retirement Income Advice: Part 5 - Withdrawal Policies Recorded: Oct 27 2020 30 mins
    Martin Lines, Business Development Director, Just
    What happens if things don’t go to plan? How do withdrawals change? What is the contingency plan? Do we need to look at other assets? Has this plan been agreed with the client at outset? In an ideal world, everything will go to plan, and maybe the client will be able to achieve more than they expected. But a withdrawal policy statement is deigned to demonstrate that they have understood that there are variables that may have an impact. They may need to agree to maintain or reduce withdrawals in certain circumstances. Or, of course, they may have an opportunity increase income if things have gone well, rather than continue on the path originally set out.

    Learning Objectives:

    By viewing this webinar, you will be able to:
    1. Recognise how to evidence the key stages of the plan
    2. Put in place agreed contingency arrangements depending on changing circumstances
    3. Discuss the impact of an economic downturn and the relevance of financial resilience
    4. Agree and document planned increases and decreases in income
    5. Discuss what a withdrawal policy should contain
    6. Recognise where the use of non-pensions assets might be appropriate
  • Estate planning through the generations Recorded: Oct 27 2020 68 mins
    Nick Bird, Business Development Manager, Octopus Investments
    The current crisis has focused clients’ on succession planning, shown in by a 75% increase in Will writing. It has also accelerating the trend to look for opportunities to transfer wealth through generations within a family. We will reference research that gauged views from clients, financial advisers as well as lawyers – highlighting some common misconceptions and how righting those can open-up client conversations and new client engagement.

    We will share examples of best practice we have seen with advisers engage with families both up and down generations to help give them peace of mind for their financial future. As the art of financial planning is the discussion, blend and agreement on solutions available to aim for a given goal – we will refresh on the options available with a deeper look at business property relief (BPR).

    Learning Outcomes
    - To understand and articulate the opportunities and risks that the intergenerational transition of wealth will raise over the next decade
    - Familiarise you with strategies to engage with families up and down generations

  • Stress Testing and Scenario Planning Recorded: Oct 26 2020 30 mins
    Martin Lines, Business Development Director, Just
    We will look at things like cash-flow planning. We’ll see how different tools can be used to help stress-test different scenarios. In what circumstances would the plan not work? How can we look at things objectively and overcome behavioural biases that might exist. We need to take a realistic approach. The use of planning tools along with the expertise of the adviser can really manage expectations and set a course for a better retirement and later life. We’ll also see how the use of different assets and product mixes might improve outcomes whilst still allowing a degree of flexibility.

  • A New World Order is Emerging - Is now the time for gold & silver? Recorded: Oct 16 2020 62 mins
    Ned Naylor - Leyland, Fund Manager, Jupiter Asset Management
    The current bull market for gold and the relative rise in the value of silver have attracted the attention of investors. Central banks have met the economic consequences of the coronavirus pandemic by further loosening of the monetary system. This has created negative real yields for many sovereign bonds and a growing distrust among investors for fiat (government issued) currencies.

    Gold is best understood as a currency, not a commodity. Historically, gold has been the currency of last resort. It is a hedge against inflation, against the collapse of a fiat currency, and indeed even of an economy.

    While attracted to gold in principle, many investors may not be aware of the best way to gain exposure to it. For example, both physical bullion and mining equities are available. Even investors who include some gold in their portfolios many be gaining insufficient exposure to its diversification benefits. To obtain the best exposure at the right time, an active approach is needed that combines the optimal mixture of mining equities, gold, and silver.

    In this presentation the learning objectives will be to:

    - Explain the role gold can play in a diversified portfolio
    - Understand the benefits of investing in silver alongside gold
    - Discuss the role gold can play as an inflation hedge

    Speaker Bio:
