  • Panel Discussion: Outlook for ESG, Impact and Ethical Investing Oct 30 2019 6:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Ron Bates, 1919 Investment Counsel | Scott Conlon, ASI | Randy Kaufman, EMM Wealth | Julie Davitz, BNP Paribas
    The next three decades will see the largest transfer of inter-generational wealth in history. In the U.S alone, we expect that between $30 and $40 trillion of wealth will be transferred from Baby Boomers to Generation X and onto Millennials.

    Wealth managers will be dealing with a new generation of investors who are far more values-driven than earlier ones. And research indicates that both women and millennials are more likely to invest consistently with their values. A survey by BlackRock found that 67% of millennials want investments that reflect their social and environmental values, while 76% of women said the same.

    Independent reports from Standard Life and JPMorgan forecast the global impact investment sector will be worth $1 trillion by 2020, compared to $60 billion currently.

    This massive and wide-ranging trend raises a number of challenges for wealth advisors who want to succeed for their clients in this new environment. The panel will address these related issues:

    ● What is the most reliable methodology for identifying publicly traded companies that truly commit to specific ESG/Impact values in their operations?

    ● Can an ESG/Impact-driven portfolio perform at least at parity with a more traditional portfolio?

    ● What's the most effective way for a wealth advisor to convey to potential investors regarding his/her commitment to and expertise with ESG/Impact investing?

    ● Is the "typical" wealth advisory firm properly staffed and resourced to deal with this rapidly approaching trend? If not, what still needs to be done?

  • ESG and Pensions: How Long-Term Thinking Will Drive Investment Success Oct 29 2019 4:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Blake Pontius, William Blair | Veronica Broomes | Alessia Falsarone, PineBridge | Derek Butcher, RBC GAM
    The ideal retirement or pension fund starts the drawdown phase only after decades of savings. Similarly, many benefits of ESG become more easily recognisable after multiple quarters or years. This long-term scope conflicts with wall street's penchant for quarterly earnings. Should short-term investors be thinking more like long-term investors? This webinar will discuss:

    - Methods of valuing ESG
    - Benefits of applying ESG decision frameworks to your portfolios
    - How Pension funds look at potential investments

    Moderated by - Veronica Broomes, CSR and Sustainability Consultant

  • Panel Discussion - Scaling up Sustainable Finance and Sustainable Securitisation Oct 29 2019 1:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Dana Hanby, ESG Nexus | Ana Harris, SSGA | Graham Smith, HSBC | Corinne Bendersky, S&P | Trevor Allen, BNP Paribas
    Even though the momentum in the implementation of Sustainable Finance has grown considerably in recent years, it still represents only a small fraction of total financial flows. The current status quo, if continued, is unlikely to deliver a successful transition to a more sustainable economic model. Estimates of the scale of the investment required to achieve the EU’s targets for a more sustainable future runs into hundreds of billions of euros annually (or trillions over next 10 to 15 years).

    Considerable research has been carried out to suggest solutions that could build the scale. One of the papers prepared by the Sustainable Finance Study Group and presented to G20, for example, outlines three pathways for Scaling up Sustainable Finance. These include a timely and efficient shift to Capital Markets from Banks’ balance sheets, the Development of Sustainable Private Equity and Venture Capital, and the application of Technology and Digital Finance to Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues.

    Pressure grows for the integration of Sustainability across the entire value creation chain and asset classes.

    What approaches do Financial Institutions take to build the scale? How are they evolving? Can we achieve the required scale if ESG is not a part of the ‘mainstream finance’? We will discuss these and other issues in our webinar. We will also hear about the challenges and the developments in sustainable securitisation.

    We have invited an esteemed panel of speakers:

    Ana Harris – MD, Global Head of Equity Strategist; State Street Global Advisors

    Graham Smith – Director, Global Head of Sustainability, HSBC

    Corinne Bendersky – AD, Sustainable Finance, Corporate and Infrastructure Ratings; S&P

    Trevor Allen – Sustainability Research Analyst, BNP Paribas

    Moderated by – Dana Hanby – MD, ESG Nexus who will discuss the approaches that Financial Institutions are taking to scale up sustainable finance. We will be delighted if you join the conversation.

    Lorraine Ell, CEO & Senior Financial Advisor, Better Money Decisions
    Despite the rise in interest rates of late, creating income from an investment portfolio to fund retirement is still challenging for most. The oft quoted standard of a 4% withdrawal rate has proven to be untenable, as well as not necessarily appropriate in every investor’s situation.

    So how can investors develop a workable retirement income scenario? Lorraine Ell, CEO of Better Money Decisions has helped clients create retirement income for decades. Learn from an expert how to:

    - Identify your needs and wants
    - Find the right level of risk
    - Manage cash flow in up and down markets
    - Boost yield with high income producing instruments
    - Position assets to maximize returns
  • Retirement Planning “Built to Last” Recorded: Sep 10 2019 48 mins
    Curtis V. Cloke, CEO & Founder, Thrive Income Distribution System
    Building retirement plans that can last a lifetime is the prize of every retirement planning professional and retiree. When retirement plans are “Built to Last”, longevity risk is the number one retirement risk for most retirees (especially when protecting two people for a lifetime). Retirement practitioners need to consider major risks associated with the distribution phase, different from the accumulation phase. Understanding what retirees want and what keeps them up at night are the major elements for financial professionals to resolve and solve for their pre-and-post retiree clients.

    It is important to build investment allocations that create a base of income that cannot be destroyed, one that cannot be outlived, and when done correctly, protect principal in the event of early death. Investing solutions should focus on income flow, discretionary liquidity, growth opportunities and legacy goals. During this session, we will address many myths and biases that surround these questions and show you how building a retirement income floor that incorporates insurance guarantees can help clients meet their emotional and financial needs for a lifetime.


    In this program, you will learn about:

    - Promised Based Income: Luck vs. Skill (Predictable vs Unpredictable)
    - Liquidity: Understanding the “Illusion of Control”… FOMO (fear of missing out)
    - The top five risks to mitigate in retirement
    - How to take a “basket of products approach” (agnostic approach)
    - The benefits of: “Buy income and investing the difference®
    - Divide and Conquer Strategy:
    - Providing income that lasts a lifetime
    - Providing an opportunity for long-term growth, discretionary liquidity and legacy goals

  • [Webinar Panel]: Evaluating Profitable Strategies in Sustainable Investing Recorded: Apr 17 2019 60 mins
    Paul Ellis, Jeffrey Gitterman, Benjamin Yeoh, My-Linh Ngo
    “Doing well by doing good” is catchy, but it was often seen as a nice to have rather than a requirement. Sustainable Investing was a popular thing to say your firm does, but it was often seen as a “side dish” to real investments. This perception is changing, yet there is still work to be done. 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.

    This session will provide you with an appreciation of the history of ESG & Sustainable Investing, understand the challenges inherent in investing, and ideas on how to create profitable investment strategies.

  • Investing in Cannabis: Managing the Highs and Lows Recorded: Oct 9 2018 55 mins
    Jay Simpson, Senior Associate, ISS-ethix
    In an effort to address some of the key concerns for investors surrounding cannabis we will:

    · Examine recent legislative developments in a number of countries, most importantly Canada and the United States and the subsequent growth in demand.

    · Define key terms and important distinctions between medical and recreational cannabis.

    · Focus on the legalization of medical cannabis in a growing number of jurisdictions which has led pharmaceutical companies to invest in cannabis-based medicines, as well as alternatives based on synthetically produced cannabinoids.

    · Chart the growth of business opportunities across the full spectrum of the cannabis industry – both medical and recreational – including the tentative entry of big players into the market.


    Enhanced investor due diligence is required to address the legal, operational, financial and reputational risks the industry is facing – largely as a result of regulatory uncertainties and inconsistencies. We will examine some of the pitfalls of an industry in its infancy.

    For the best part of a decade, delivering income has been a battle. Low interest rates and bond yields have pushed investors to take greater risks to achieve high income. As US interest rates rise and bond yields spike higher, has the landscape changed? With cash potentially delivering an income in real terms, are we back to a more normal environment of bonds for income and equity for growth? What does this mean for portfolio positioning today?

  • How To Use Crypto Currencies As A Fixed Income Solution Recorded: Sep 12 2018 28 mins
    Tim Enneking, Founder of Crypto Asset Management.
    Most of us have heard about crypto “currencies”, ICOs and the tremendous volatility and risks involved. Is there any rationality in this space? Is there any room for a more traditional investor – or is investing in crypto anything but a crap shoot?

    The fact of the matter is that there is already quite a broad range of investments available in the crypto space, many of which carry far less risk and a far higher level of security than one might believe from general media reporting on the crypto sector.

    This session will briefly touch on all of the major categories of investments in the crypto space and then focus on the various fixed-income and pseudo-fixed-income investments which already exist. It will conclude with a brief look at where the sector is going – which we know with relative certainty because the “fiat” space (the traditional financial sector) has already been there…

    About Tim

    Timothy is the founder and the primary Principal of Crypto Asset Management, LP ("CAM"). Prior to founding CAM, Mr. Enneking was the founder and investment manager for the Crypto Currency Fund (“CCF”), one of the world's first private funds focused on cryptocurrencies.

    Prior to operating CCF, Mr. Enneking founded and managed Tera Capital Fund, a fund of funds focused on Eastern Europe (established in 2004). Simultaneously, in 2013, he was engaged to manage the world’s first Bitcoin fund.

    Mr. Enneking also has extensive M&A experience, having completed more than 70 transactions with an aggregate transaction value of over US$12 billion. He speaks near-native French and Russian, as well as German. He has five university degrees, all in international business and law.
