  • Mattereum - Pragmatic Smart Ledgers Without The Lawyers Oct 11 2017 8:00 am UTC 60 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.

  • Money Talks: Can banks switch to profiting from good financial behaviour? Sep 21 2017 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Dr. Louise Beaumont (Strategic Advisor, Open Bank, Publicis.Sapient), Aleksi Grym (Head of Digitalisation, Bank of Finland)
    Digital transformation is a promise that many have been skeptical of. Join this panel where industry experts will tackle all the tough questions and provide new and thought-provoking insights.

    Among others, they will discuss:

    -Can the banks switch to making money from enabling customers’ healthy financial behaviour, rather than from continuing to exploit ongoing financial self-harm?

    -Traditional banking is on the verge of major disruption, so digital transformation had better deliver *actual* transformation. Tinkering is expensively pointless

    -Continuing to exploit inertia-driven customer behaviour – and thus coining excess profits - will be seriously challenged by Open Banking
  • From Regulation to Reality: Making PSD2 Work Sep 12 2017 2:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Marijke Koninckx – Product Marketing Manager – FIS
    While the launch of PSD2 is approaching fast, there is still some ground to cover to turn this regulation into reality.What are the challenges and opportunities and what is required to make PSD2 work?

    Marijke Koninckx, Product Marketing Manager at FIS, discusses how PSD2 transforms the relation between banks and their customers into a new 3-way relationship.

    How should banks manage this new 3 way relationship?
    What are the implications and what functional and technical issues need to be addressed to be successful?
  • Data Analytics in Financial Services: Identifying obstacles and key issues Recorded: Jul 20 2017 61 mins
    Alex Kwiatkowski (Finastra), Peter Jackson (Southern Water), Jessica Holzbach (Penta)
    In an increasingly digitalised world, the value of information grows ever higher. Winning organisations – whether in financial services or any other vertical sector – will be those who can harness the power of data analytics to develop microscopic levels of insight and foresight into customer behaviours and operational activities in order to make progressive improvements on a continuous basis. Product development informed by factual evidence rather than educated guesswork, or real-time risk management based on a hyper-accurate picture of exposures, bring significant internal and external benefits.

    However, while banks want to get closer to their customers, is the feeling mutual? Data privacy is a very sensitive issue, and the perception of what constitutes intrusion will likely vary between individuals. Institutions, therefore, need to walk a fine line between what’s genuinely useful and what’s genuinely creepy.

    During this webinar, a panel of respected subject matter experts will discuss and dissect the key issues related to the widespread use of data analytics in financial services, identifying the obstacles which need to be overcome and the enablers that will drive FS forward successfully.

    Financial Services companies rely on personal data for both their retail and business customers. Legislation and regulation, such as AMLD4, PSD2 and GDPR; both control and mandate its use.

  • Financial Market Perspective, H1 2017 - Inflection Points and Contrast Recorded: Jul 12 2017 43 mins
    Eric Parnell, CFA, Founder & Director, Gerring Capital Partners
    The first half of 2017 has provided a lot of surprises, politically and economically, from the French and UK elections, activity in the Gulf, the direction of the US economy and the evolution of fiscal and monetary policy.

    Some were more predictable than others but what is becoming clear looking to Q3 and Q4 is the significant inflection points so far, and the contrast this will cause between the first and second half of the year.

    So join Eric Parnell, CFA and Founder & Director of Gerring Capital Partners as he provides a perspective on H1 2017 and an outlook for H2. Attend live and discover:

    - A variety of inflection points in both economics and policy in H1 2017
    - Why we are arriving at these inflection points and how these transitions are likely to impact stock, bond and commodities markets.
    - The reasons for and outcomes of the drastic contrast between H1 and H2 2017, including a expected increase in market volatility and uncertainty.
  • Post-Modern Porfolio Theory with David Siegel Recorded: Jul 12 2017 49 mins
    David Siegel
    A smart portfolio can mean the difference between a comfortable life and a constant struggle. Most people make poor, emotionally based investment decisions with many biases. Even investing professionals who studied Modern Portfolio Theory did not help their clients in the Global Financial Crisis.

    In fact, when I ask professional investment advisors if they would hire themselves if they had $100 million in the bank, they all say of course not. Most pundits, from celebrity investment gurus to leading academics, have simply been wrong about markets and their predictability.

    We are entering a new era of machine trading, where the average person has no chance to systematically outperform the markets. Learn about post-modern portfolio theory with David Siegel and start building a smart portfolio today.

  • Measuring the qualitative – or how tech can save financial services from itself Recorded: Apr 6 2017 60 mins
    Jane Walshe (Enforcd), Malcolm Wright (Thomson Reuters), Mathias Wegmueller (Qumram), Jason Boud (RegTech Forum)
    2017 is shaping up to be the year in which RegTech catches up with FinTech and the sector is brimming with innovative ideas that can help regulated firms address regulatory requirements in an efficient and cost effective way.

    But how good is this technology, really? Can everything that is promised be delivered? At it’s best, RegTech can help firms to price and quantify the risks around a firm having a poor culture, and technology can solve problems of capturing qualitative concepts, such as behaviour and culture, and embedding these in to a firm's operational/conduct risk model.

    In this discussion, Jane Walshe of Enforcd is joined by other RegTech pioneers to discuss what RegTech can do, and also possible pitfalls to be avoided in its use.
  • Making Open Bank a success means driving customer adoption. So what's the plan? Recorded: Apr 5 2017 60 mins
    Dr. Louise Beaumont (techUK Open Bank), Richard Leader (Funding Options), Hilding Anderson (SapientRazorfish)
    The phrase 'Open Bank’ means nothing to consumers and small businesses - and probably never will.

    But the whole Open Bank endeavour will enable innovative new services, delivered by more competitive suppliers - meaning that customers will have access to services that are actually relevant to them and which work in today's (and tomorrow's) world.

    We'll discuss how to encourage consumers and small businesses to explore and embrace the new Open Bank world.

  • The Requirement for Identity in Distributed Ledgers Recorded: Mar 14 2017 60 mins
    Ben Matthews and Matt Britton (BCS Consulting)
    As adoption of distributed ledger technology (DLT) in the financial services industry moves ever closer, discussion is progressing to the next level of detail on questions of identity, governance and jurisdiction.

    The majority view – shared by industry consortia and regulators - is that DLT networks in financial services will need to be private, permissioned environments in which all participants are fully identifiable, in contrast to the pseudonymous approach taken by Bitcoin.

    This webinar will explore requirements for identity in the context of industry-strength DLT networks, and highlight key considerations for industry participants going forward.
