    “Doing well by doing good” is catchy, but it was often seen as a nice to have rather than a requirement.

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.

  • Blockchains and New Educational Models Recorded: Oct 12 2017 53 mins
    Prof.John Domingue Director, Knowledge Media Institute, The Open University
    Since its inception the Open University has used the latest technology to bring Higher Education to everyone who wishes to study. During development its initial name was ‘the University of the Air’ due to the prevalence of radio at the time.

    Following our innovation thread we have over the past year or so been conducting a number of experiments in deploying blockchains in OU courses.

    In this talk I will cover how we have been using blockchains to manage micro-accreditation (including badging), ePortfolios and peer accreditation in a variety of settings. I will also outline our initiatives to setup national and international blockchain networks and how blockchains could herald the emergence of Uber-style universities.
  • How Smart Contracts & Blockchain can co-exist with current legal concepts Recorded: Oct 11 2017 63 mins
    Lee Bacon, Nigel Brooke (Clyde & Co), Kevin Hobbs (Etherparty), Jimmy Nguyen (nChain(
    The title smart contracts is used to refer to a number of arrangements in which relationships are governed by a pre-determined digitalised arrangement, so that coded instructions execute on the occurrence of an event.

    These often use Blockchain or distributed ledger technology to record and execute transactions. In their purest sense, the code – once agreed – becomes self-executing and self-governing and thus (it is argued) replaces the need for a wider contract or checks and balances.

    Whilst their common name is arguably a misnomer (they are not necessarily contracts in the traditional legal sense), their implementation can enable transparency in supply chains and the reduction of frictional and intermediary costs.

    This panel will examine how the concepts of smart contracts, utilising blockchain technology, can co-exist with existing legal concepts to include a review of:

    · The distinction between traditional legal prose/code and programming code.

    · Application of traditional principles (to include the three f-words: frustration, fraud and force majeure)

    · The allocation of responsibility and liability.

    · Practical steps and perspectives on the future.
  • Is code the new law? Regulation, Legality and Smart Contracts Recorded: Oct 11 2017 61 mins
    Ravikant Agrawal (Cognizant), Laurence Kirk (Extropy), Arnab Naskar (Innovationsforum), Jonathan Galea (Bitmalta)
    Regulation has been considered an obstacle when it comes to the adoption of blockchain technology. But many have taken on the challenge and have actively started to take blockchain and DLT as both a challenge and an opportunity.

    Join this panel where we will discuss:

    -ICOs, Self regulation of ICO, status of tokens in an ICO
    -How blockchain will affect existing market regulations
    -Which new regulations can we expect to respond to the ecosystem that blockchain has created?
    -How would the governance structure be determined?
    -How can the obstacle of a cross-border environment be tackled?
  • Mattereum - Pragmatic Smart Ledgers Without The Lawyers Recorded: Oct 11 2017 52 mins
    Professor Michael Mainelli, Co-founder of Z/Yen
    Much has been written about the power and scope of Smart Ledgers and Mutual Distributed Ledgers (MDLs, aka blockchains). Amidst the rush to find new applications for this versatile, ‘trustless’ technology, people overlook the challenge of governing Smart Ledger networks. Governance provides the mechanisms required to balance accountability of the governing body and its duty of meeting the specific objectives of the organisation.

    Effective governance of Smart Ledgers should answer four critical questions - How are rules created for the ledger and who oversees their application? What happens in the case of dispute? Who is allowed to change the software application and the data? How are security, risk and performance managed and reported?

    One approach is to embed these questions in existing legal structures, another to try to remain outside, but a third is to explore the appropriate role of arbitration, mediation, and expert determination, as far as possible avoiding enmeshing novel identity, document, and agreement exchanges within traditional legal structures.

    In this webinar, Professor Michael Mainelli will share research from the Mattereum initiative as well as Long Finance research sponsored by the Cardano Foundation. He will conclude that, while there is nothing new under the sun, Smart Ledgers may need to shift the balance of power from law, to code, to human wisdom.
