  • The future of wealth: megatrends, GameStop and investor education May 5 2021 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Allan Lane, Algo-Chain
    The recent GameStop frenzy presents a good example of the impact of democratising finance and underlines the importance of being able to distinguish between short-term fads and long-term megatrends.

    As the number of investment platforms connecting retail investors to financial markets proliferates, the amazonification of financial markets - and in turn, the disintermediation of the industry - is progressing at an unprecedented rate. The same cannot be said for investor education.

    In this new era, financial advisors need to redefine the value of their service, positioning themselves as educators and experts in identifying long-term, lucrative investment opportunities.

    Which is why, in the final episode of BrightTALK’s Thematic Investing series, we’re inviting leaders from across the global financial sector to explore the top megatrends for the future and share their insight on how to successfully integrate them into your long-term strategy.

    Join this webinar to explore:

    - The top megatrends for the future and how to integrate them into your investment strategy;
    - Hype vs. trend - how to avoid getting caught up in fads
    - Do AI and data hold the keys to portfolio optimisation?

  • How advisers can diversify differently (CPD accredited) Recorded: Apr 12 2021 49 mins
    Michael Walsh
    Elevated valuations for many assets combined with low government bond yields leave investors with a challenging dilemma: how to benefit from market gains if economic conditions improve while mitigating against potential losses if things deteriorate?

    This balancing of ‘greed’ and ‘fear’ is one of the oldest problems in investing, and one with a relatively simple solution: diversification.

    Michael Walsh, a strategist in our Solutions team, will look at ideas to diversify portfolios in the current environment – and also at how some tried-and-tested approaches may no longer apply.

    Attending this webinar qualifies for 45 minutes of accredited CPD, endorsed by the CISI
  • Investing in Life Sciences Recorded: Apr 7 2021 56 mins
    Allan Lane, Algo-Chain | Aanand Venkatramanan, LGIM
    Biotechnology has become the next revolution in the life sciences industry. It follows advances in microscopes that enable the study of bacteria and infectious diseases and chemistry that created antibiotics. More recent discoveries, such as decoding the human genome, help us anticipate illness and live longer lives. For investment managers, the life sciences, which includes Pharma and Biotechnology, is known to be an industry of consistent returns and high growth. Even before COVID-19, it was poised to reach $775 Billion by 2024. The urgency of COVID-19 and the demand for a vaccine increase the value of the industry, shown in the US government’s Operation Warp Speed, a $10 billion grant program seeking a successful vaccine.

    How will the value of life sciences grow as the market demands cures to existing diseases and prevention for future ailments? Join this webinar to learn about:

    - The true size & market outlook of the life sciences industry
    - How COVID-19 has affected the pace of value creation in biotechnology
    - What to think about when analyzing prospects for pharma and biotech companies

  • Investing in Health & Wellbeing Recorded: Mar 3 2021 60 mins
    Allan Lane, Algo-Chain | Jeremie Capron, ROBO Global | Grzegorz Juchniewicz, NeonDigitise | Anthony Ginsberg, GinsGlobal
    Advances in medicine and technology have increased our lives' duration and quality, opening up opportunities for investors focused on the health and wellness industries. Technology enables us to track our health indicators, which changes the dynamic between healthcare companies, technology companies, and consumers. Holistic health services are also becoming more popular, decreasing the demand for mega-hospitals and increasing the demand for local, customized care solutions. And, as COVID-19 has forced a need for virtual interactions, people have become more comfortable receiving sensitive advice over the phone, paving the way for mass adoption of telemedicine.

    With all of these areas of change, how can investors look at health & wellness more opportunistically?

    This webinar will dive into:
    - The dynamics between healthcare and technology
    - How telemedicine can democratize access to high-quality health care
    - Opportunities emerging in localized solutions to the current centralized healthcare industry
