We’re seeing a global trend towards responsible investing. Increasingly, institutional investors are recognising the potential for ESG factors to affect the valuation and financial performance of the companies they invest in. At the same time, consumer demand for responsible investments is surging, especially from the younger generation. “Responsible” or “sustainable” finance and a focus on environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors have moved firmly into the mainstream today. This booklet presents the proof to address the issues around responsible investment implementation: statistics from across investment markets that show how significant this shift is.

When we first launched the Women In Alternative Investments Report (WAI Report) in 2001, we were among the few voices talking about women’s advancement in alternative investments. It was a delicate conversation and one that few people were comfortable having. But now, eight years later, the conversation has shifted. The issues have moved mainstream, the dialogue has broadened, and the voices are many, but change is afoot. Investors are pressuring Alternative Investment Firms to increase gender diversity at the funds and portfolios they invest in. Read the KPMG report to understand why achieving gender diversity is a business imperative.

The asset and fund management industry has grown signifcantly in the last decade, with surveys indicating about 65 percent growth since 2007, to over USD 80 trillion in assets under management worldwide. As its importance to the world financial system – linking those with money to invest with enterprises and activities that require funding – is increasingly recognized, so both the industry and the regulators that police the sector become more prominent. The industry and regulators are coming under pressure from a range of “external” voices – demanding investors and consumer groups, clamoring political and economic needs, changing priorities and hopes of civil society, an increasingly noisy press, the explosion in social media and the rapid growth of new technologies. This sea of voices is directly influencing the regulatory agenda and increasing expectations on the industry. A fundamental rethink of firms’ mindset and investment offerings is required.

Many investors were concerned over the inverted US yield curve and recessionary fears. The inversion was due to the Federal Reserve’s (Fed) excessive tightening steps in 2018 amid rising US-China trade tensions. Citi analysts believe the turn to easing by the Fed and numerous other central banks, as well as a likely more cautious approach to trade negotiations, could help to cushion risk assets. Citigold is Citi’s premium wealth management solution that is designed to meet the global banking and investment needs of affluent individuals with investable assets of USD 200,000 (or in equivalent currencies) and above.

Money makes the world go ‘round, but can you tell your organisation’s “money story”—how it generates revenue and profits, maximises cash flow and steers clear of trouble? Not the practiced version that is supplied to the company’s investors, but the actual per unit economics, the metrics indicating the financial viability of the organisation, what is working well and what needs to be improved, and when to hit the brakes or pound the accelerator?

Many in the United States’ power generation industry no doubt long for the relative market tranquility of the late 20th century. The generation plants built and operated then were carbon-fueled or nuclear-powered, with a few hydro-electric plants sprinkled in. The economics were largely stable and predictable, often thanks to regulation that shielded utilities from market fluctuations. But even in those simpler times, when the market was far less volatile, there was still much due diligence required when investors and developers were considering multi-milliondollar commitments in new generation projects. Today’s market is more volatile, due in large part to the disruptive effect of low-cost natural gas and the subsequent, rapid growth of affordable renewable energy. As more uneconomical and inefficient generation plants go offline, there is, for the most part, sufficient carbon-free or carbon-reduced generation to meet the growing demand for electric energy. There are pockets of growth

Impending IFRS 17 regulation will overhaul accounting standards for insurers, primarily in the European Union, Asia, Latin America and Canada. Greater detail, transparency and comparability will give analysts and investors more insight into a company’s financial health than ever before. For most insurers, the transition to IFRS 17 will have a visible impact on financial statements and key performance indicators – and not in a good way. Implementing the IT architecture for it will be a serious undertaking. This white paper explains why insurers should be taking action now to prepare for the new requirements, and what to look for in an IFRS 17 solution.

hile Bitcoin took a bit of a beating in August 2018, it did little to dampen interest in the obviously volatile cryptocurrency market. Bitcoin lost 20 percent of its value in just two weeks in August, according to some reports1 , and yet there appears to be substantial optimism in the currency. According to one report2 , there were 96 new crypto hedge funds launched in the first seven months of 2018 and when the Turkish Lira plummeted 20 percent in August 2018, there was a surge in Bitcoin trading3 . Cryptocurrency is clearly here to stay and while that may whet the appetite of brave investors, it’s also a magnet for crime. Unsurprisingly perhaps, hackers are targeting4 cryptocurrency exchanges but what many businesses and individuals may not realize is that there is serious money to be made in actually performing admin functions for the currencies themselves. Called cryptomining, it can be big business. Some reports5 have suggested that profits from mining have hit over $4 billion b

Digital transformation (DX) has progressed well beyond the abundant hype predicting it to where it is now an existential concern for many enterprises. We are at an inflection point as digital transformation efforts shift from "project" or "initiative" status to strategic business imperatives. Growing enterprises, regardless of age or industry, are striving to become "digital native" in the way their executives and employees think, what they produce, and how they operate. IDC predicts that by 2021, at least 50% of global GDP will be digitized, with growth in every industry driven by digitally enhanced offerings, operations, and relationships, and that by 2020, investors will use platform/ecosystem, data value, and customer engagement metrics as valuation factors for all enterprises.

This ExecBlueprint provides practical advice for developing such a code that will go beyond “window dressing” and inspire leaders and employees alike to build and sustain a compliant and ethical culture. While acting ethically is important for its own sake, the authors also provide pragmatic reasoning for fostering such a culture: ethical organizations earn the trust — and loyalty — of employees, customers, and investors. Accordingly, the code should be simple to understand, widely circulated, and aggressively enforced. But most importantly: adherence starts at the top.
