Webinar - Smarter commodity hedging
 
45:11
Treasury, accounting and procurement are often unintegrated, siloed by group or region with a lack of visibility. This can lead to supply risk in the financial markets not being actively hedged or double-hedging of exposures maintained in separate systems, managed by different departments. This webinar will highlight the advantages of an enterprise-wide perspective of current and projected counterparty exposures and collateral management needs: • Understand your entire business, not just cash • Evaluate your hedging strategy against best practice, considering market volatility, procurement purchases and the impact of derivatives • Discover modern scenarios and stress testing strategies to monitor exposure and mitigate enterprise wide risk

The arguably most important number in finance, underpinning financial contracts worth trillions of pounds, is going away. And financial markets aren’t prepared. In this webinar, we shared the latest thinking on the changes including transition planning, adoption of RFR’s and development of new Term RFR’s.
Webinar - A fresh approach to interest rate risk management
 
51:59
If you're currently considering raising new finance are you also considering hedging? The current interest rate and credit spread environment presents an opportunity for treasury departments to solidify their interest rate and refinancing risk framework. During the assessment and implementation of the optimal strategy, it is important to consider the significant complexities around derivatives pricing, valuation, regulation, accounting and counterparty documentation. This ACT webinar discusses important topics you should consider before, during and after the strategy execution process: Pre-deal - Setting the appropriate interest rate strategy - Aligning the debt with a hedging program to ensure effectiveness and minimise risk - Considering of the accounting implications (IAS 39, IFRS 9) for each hedging alternative Execution - Understanding pricing components, documentation negotiations, credit capacity constraints - Meeting accounting requirements at execution (documentation, effectiveness assessments, etc) Post-trade - Ensuring regulatory compliance - Having the best technology to support financial reporting including valuations (IFRS 13), hedge accounting, disclosures, etc The webinar will concludes with a Q&A session for the panel of speakers.

Watch this webinar to learn more about what efficiency gains can be achieved and ensure you're making the most of a SEPA future.
Webinar - EMIR and beyond: Where now?
 
46:26
Many of the requirements of EMIR, including trade reporting, have only just come into force. If still struggling with implementation then becoming fully compliant will be the priority for corporates. Once the basics are in hand then improving processes and efficiency will be the order of the day. But looking beyond the mechanics, what further implications are there for risk management, market practices and the cost and availability of derivatives? The webinar considers: • the early experiences and tips for reaching full compliance • the service providers and processes to boost efficiency • using LEIs (Legal Entity identifiers) to monitor exposures and concentrations • expectations for the LEI system and what additional information and utility it can deliver • how the use of derivatives will be affected by Basel III / EMIR clearing requirements, including impact on costs, workflows and bank relationships and market appetite for business • trends towards platform and exchange trading, clearing and collateral. Will cleared or collateralised transactions become the market norm and with what price benefits? • will company hedging policies and tactics have to adapt to fit with market practices and availability of derivatives?

Webinar - Payment transformation: Global payment trends and the future landscape
 
44:51
Global payment trends are shifting as customers increasingly use anytime, anywhere, any device payments. This is especially evident in the UK with increased functionality on smartphones and wearable technology. The majority of new payment methods are supported by the trusted payment infrastructure provided by banks. The UK was one of the first countries in the world to enhance its payment infrastructure and offer Faster Payments, this initiative is now being replicated in the rest of Europe, the US and beyond. The UK’s experience is guiding others in their development of Immediate Payments, but with schemes being developed with divergent objectives and using different standards what might the cross border payments market look like tomorrow? An unprecedented number of regulatory and industry initiatives are shaping the payments market. In Europe PSD2 is being developed, it promises to enrich the customer experience and presents challenges and opportunities for market participants. The future payments landscape will be driven by meeting client demands using new agile technology. The potential offered by API’s, blockchain and wearable payment devices make tomorrows payment market an exciting one.
