  • The Investment Management of Insurance Assets under Solvency II
    The Investment Management of Insurance Assets under Solvency II Gareth Mee, EY; James Hughes, Aberdeen Solutions; Euan MacLaren, NGAM UK; Martin Hurst, IPE Mar 28 2017 1:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    This is the first in a series of three webcasts looking at Solvency II from the point of view of the insurance company CIO.

    The second and third will focus on alternative fixed income and real assets respectively.

    How suitable - or otherwise - are the current capital charges and what can we expect from the 2018 review?

    Solvency II was conceived in a normal yield environment; that, of course has changed and this is one reason for the review planned for 2018. Insurers are interested in the agreed thinking of what these should be and the prospects of them being amended to a level more representative of the associated risk. What is reasonable and what can we expect?

    What might the political obstacles be to, say, making a distinction for capital charge purposes between Spanish and UK government bonds?

    The impact of regulation on investment strategy

    We will explore the relative impact of matching adjustment, volatility adjustment and transitionals and the impact on investment strategy as a result.

    Consolidation

    How are insurance asset owners coping with the new regulation generally? Can we expect consolidation among insurance asset owners because of the increased regulatory burden?

    Use of internal models can lead to lower capital requirements, but they are very expensive to create, and are thus likely to be the preserve of the larger insurance companies.

    Smaller firms might club together to enable them to access certain types of investment, and might ultimately see acquisition by a larger firm as the only way both to do this on a consistent basis and manage the increased regulatory burden. Furthermore, a common regime across Europe should make it easier for potential buyers to assess exactly what they are buying.

    Other regulatory factors

    What will be the impact on investment regulation of Brexit on UK regulation, and on the investment management of insurance assets?

    What can we learn from other regulatory regimes from an investment standpoint?

    EU GDPR: Hype? Cost? Or the opportunity to get more value out of your data? Scott Baker Senior Director Product Marketing Emerging Solutions, Hitachi Data Systems Mar 28 2017 1:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new European regulation intended to protect all EU citizens from privacy and data breaches in an increasingly data-driven world and will become into force on May 25th, 2018. Often regulations and compliance just represent a huge cost to the business. In this webinar we will focus on how we can turn the cost to comply with regulations into a competitive advantage by turning data into a valuable asset to the business.

  • Analytical Strategies for Comparability in Bioprocess Development
    Analytical Strategies for Comparability in Bioprocess Development Christine P. Chan, Ph.D & Joe Barco, Ph.D. Mar 28 2017 2:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Comparability exercises are commonly required at certain milestones during drug development as well as after product registration when changes are implemented into the manufacturing process. The goal is to evaluate if the product remains highly similar (not necessarily identical) before and after the change in terms of quality and stability and have no adverse impact on safety and efficacy predicted for the patients. This assessment requires product-specific knowledge gathered through drug development, taking a totality-of-evidence approach. The different levels of information are obtained from analytical studies for characterization of the molecule, animal studies for toxicity, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics for pharmacological activities, and clinical studies for safety/tolerability, immunogenicity and efficacy. This Webinar discusses strategies and considerations for analytical characterization of protein structure and function which forms the foundation of the comparability demonstration.

    Sponsored by Unchained Labs

    Presentation Title: Limber up your lab with better tools for comparing biologics

    There’s no magic bullet when it comes to characterizing a protein by structure or function. Specific tests may work for one molecule but not the next. Instrumentation that provides a high degree of flexibility, balanced with low sample consumption and faster time to result, is crucial to keep up with ever changing laboratory needs. Unchained Labs puts biologics characterization front and center for our instrumentation development. We will discuss how our instruments let researchers be more flexible and efficient, while also providing clear data to help make comparability assessments.

  • Capacity - Ransomware - Protection - Three Windows File Server Upgrades to Avoid
    Capacity - Ransomware - Protection - Three Windows File Server Upgrades to Avoid Charlie Hodges, Storage Switzerland Mar 28 2017 3:30 pm UTC 60 mins
    For most enterprises, optimizing your Windows fileserver means buying a new, bigger server with more capacity and better network connections. Or it means buying a dedicated Network Attached Storage (NAS) system. Then they feel they need to add new ransomware and data protection software. All of these "solutions" are expensive, involve a costly data migration and don't really increase IT efficiency. In this webinar, experts from Storage Switzerland and Caringo will teach you how data management can eliminate the need for additional Windows file servers, capacity and protection.

  • Bridging the Strategy-to-Execution Gap to Drive Customer Engagement
    Bridging the Strategy-to-Execution Gap to Drive Customer Engagement John Nash, RedPoint; Mary Anne Hensley,CMO Council Mar 28 2017 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    The latest research from the Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) Council and RedPoint Global indicates that although customers are more connected across a multitude of channels than ever before, many organizations are still struggling to deliver the seamless, omni-channel experiences that customers seek, despite having a plethora of data, analytics and engagement systems implemented.

    In fact, the research revealed that only 7 percent of marketers surveyed are able to deliver real-time, data-driven engagements across both physical and digital touchpoints, and only 5 percent are able to see the bottom-line impact of engagements in real time. The gap between strategy and delivery of these experiences stems primarily from fractured execution systems and siloed customer data.

    This executive briefing will discuss:

    • What are the next steps that marketers can take to bridge this gap?
    • What internal capabilities and changes are needed in order for organizations to create the frictionless, omni-channel experiences that today’s connected customers expect?
    • Where can organizations start when it comes to connecting their data and insights, to better orchestrate engagement in real time and across all journey stages and touchpoints?

    Join the CMO Council for a half-hour executive briefing, which will also include a live interactive Q&A on research findings, data implications and real-world prescriptions. John Nash, Chief Marketing and Strategy Officer, RedPoint Global, will join us to provide industry insights and next best actions for marketing executives looking to overcome the roadblocks that prevent organizations from capitalizing on profitable omni-channel efforts.
