Smartkarma launch United Kingdom office
Smartkarma, Asia's largest provider of independent investment research, has officially moved to Europe! Smartkarma's new London headquarters coincides with major banking legislation, MiFID II, which takes effect in January 2018 and is forcing transparency around the supply and payment of research. The goal for European regulators is the ‘unbundling’ of research; rather than assets managers receiving research ‘free’ from banks alongside trading revenues, it must now be transparently and fairly priced and paid for. As institutional investors seek to comply with the new regulations and find ways to improve their strategies, Smartkarma is presenting a new innovative solution in how asset managers search, access and filter for independent research.

Institutional Investors: Focusing on Long-Term Value in a Short-Term World
Today's high multiples, low spreads, and increased volatility have investors focused on returns in the short and medium term. But pension funds and endowments are inherently focused on the long term. In this environment, how can these sources of patient capital stay patient? What governance structures best promote long-range investing? Does the developing or developed world have more of these opportunities, and how can investors successfully integrate environmental, social, and governance factors into portfolio decisions? What role should alternatives play, given that the yield curve is now pointing to riskier assets? Has the recent run-up in U.S. interest rates prompted changes to investments or outlooks? How do long-term investors think about volatility? Moderator Joseph L. Hooley Chairman and CEO, State Street Corp. Speakers Christopher Ailman Chief Investment Officer, California State Teachers' Retirement System; Co-Chair, Global Capital Markets Advisory Council, Milken Institute David Atkin CEO, Cbus Vicki Fuller Chief Investment Officer, New York State Common Retirement Fund Nick Moakes Chief Investment Officer, Wellcome Trust Juan Manuel Valle Pereña CEO, Afore XXI Banorte #MIGlobal http://www.milkeninstitute.org/events/conferences/global-conference/2018/

The portfolio institutional awards 2013 recognised excellence in institutional investors in ten different categories. The awards honour investors who are exemplary and forward thinking in how they manage their investments or a particular investment type or area. Each award category is judged by specially selected category juries, supervised by an academic panel. A two stage selection process leads to a winner in each category. Winners of the portfolio institutional awards 2013 Pensions lawyer Robin Ellison was presented the industry achievement award at the second annual portfolio institutional awards last night. He scooped the accolade -- voted for by members of the 40-strong awards judging panel --at a glittering gala dinner at the Royal Exchange, which also saw the £6bn Marks & Spencer UK Pension Scheme take home three awards for the best pension scheme II (over £1bn), best risk management and best portfolio structure categories.

He was the first solicitor to be elected honorary fellow of the Pensions Management Institute in 1997. On accepting the award from Barnett Waddingham partner Malcolm McLean, Ellison said he was "very touched" to be recognised by his industry peers. The evening also ended in success for the £5.2bn Church Commissioners for England endowment fund, which picked up two awards in the best charity/endowment/foundation and the best investor in property categories.

Passive Investing - The Evidence, Part 7: The Tide Is Turning
http://sensibleinvesting.tv -- the independent voice of passive investing Passive Investing is becoming more popular in the US and the evidence is that it's beginning to take off in the UK. With investment costs higher here than almost anywhere else in the world, the potential for growth is huge, and the trend towards passive is gathering momentum. Featuring Vanguard's Bill McNabb and Gus Sauter, Ken French, William Bernstein and Jasmine Birtles along with Richard Wood and Igors Alferovs from UK wealth management firm BRWM. Last time we learned how the largely self-regulated fund management industry has a vested interest in maintaining the status quo, with active investing holding sway over passive. Human beings have a tendency towards over-confidence - and that's reflected in the way we invest. And, while ctive funds are widely advertised, assive funds aren't. Nor do they command much media attention. So what does the future hold for the passive approach when fund management companies are spending vast amounts of OUR money trying to convince us that active is best? Can it ever seriously challenge the instinctive belief that people have that, if only they can find the right manager, they will beat the market? Well, actually, passive investing has been gaining in popularity in the United States for many years. And all the signs are that it's just starting to take off here in Britain as well. When a company called Vanguard introduced the first index fund for individual investors in 1976, critics said it wouldn't catch on. It's now one of America's largest investment companies with more than one one-and-a-half trillion dollars of assets under management, and it's expanding worldwide. In fact Vanguard believes that passive investing has far greater potential in the UK because the cost of active fund management is higher over here than it is in the US. Although passive investment still accounts for a very small share of the retail investment market - in other words, the market for individual investors - institutional investors already have more than thirty per cent of their portfiolios invested in passive funds. One of the companies helping individual investors to take advantage of the lower costs and higher than average returns offered by passive investing is Barnett Ravenscroft Wealth Management. There are also signs that the media's becoming more receptive to the arguments for passive investing. Several independent internet sites which, unlike the financial press, don't rely on fund management companies for advertising revenue, and can therefore say what they really think about active funds, are also starting to recommend passive. So, to summarise... Passive investing has grown steadily in popularity in the United States since the 1970s and continues to do so. Passive already accounts for more than 30% of the institutional investment market in the UK. And, increasingly, both financial advisers and indepedent experts, are starting to recommend passive to individual investors. For more videos like this one, visit http://sensibleinvesting.tv

The Battle Between Investment Banks, Hedge Funds, and Private Equity on Wall Street (2009)
The investment banking industry has come under criticism for a variety of reasons, including perceived conflicts of interest, overly large pay packages, cartel-like or oligopolic behavior, taking both sides in transactions, and more. About the book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0470222794/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0470222794&linkCode=as2&tag=tra0c7-20&linkId=122da9b4ed66d7e4eb80287e1bee5b2a Investment banking has also been criticized for its opacity. Conflicts of interest may arise between different parts of a bank, creating the potential for market manipulation, according to critics. Authorities that regulate investment banking (the FSA in the United Kingdom and the SEC in the United States) require that banks impose a "Chinese wall" to prevent communication between investment banking on one side and equity research and trading on the other. Critics say such a barrier does not always exist in practice, however. Conflicts of interest often arise in relation to investment banks' equity research units, which have long been part of the industry. A common practice is for equity analysts to initiate coverage of a company in order to develop relationships that lead to highly profitable investment banking business. In the 1990s, many equity researchers allegedly traded positive stock ratings for investment banking business. Alternatively, companies may threaten to divert investment banking business to competitors unless their stock was rated favorably. Laws were passed to criminalize such acts, and increased pressure from regulators and a series of lawsuits, settlements, and prosecutions curbed this business to a large extent following the 2001 stock market tumble after the dot-com bubble. Philip Augar, author of The Greed Merchants, said in an interview that, "You cannot simultaneously serve the interest of issuer clients and investing clients. And it's not just underwriting and sales; investment banks run proprietary trading operations that are also making a profit out of these securities."[30] Many investment banks also own retail brokerages. During the 1990s, some retail brokerages sold consumers securities which did not meet their stated risk profile. This behavior may have led to investment banking business or even sales of surplus shares during a public offering to keep public perception of the stock favorable. Since investment banks engage heavily in trading for their own account, there is always the temptation for them to engage in some form of front running -- the illegal practice whereby a broker executes orders for their own account before filling orders previously submitted by their customers, there benefiting from any changes in prices induced by those orders. Documents under seal in a decade-long lawsuit concerning eToys.com's IPO but obtained by New York Times' Wall Street Business columnist Joe Nocera alleged that IPOs managed by Goldman Sachs and other investment bankers involved asking for kickbacks from their institutional clients who made large profits flipping IPOs which Goldman had intentionally undervalued. Depositions in the lawsuit alleged that clients willingly complied with these demands because they understood it was necessary in order to participate in future hot issues.[32] Reuters Wall Street correspondent Felix Salmon retracted his earlier, more conciliatory, statements on the subject and said he believed that the depositions show that companies going public and their initial consumer stockholders are both defrauded by this practice, which may be widespread throughout the IPO finance industry.[33] The case is ongoing, and the allegations remain unproven. Investment banking is often criticized for the enormous pay packages awarded to those who work in the industry. According to Bloomberg Wall Street's five biggest firms paid over $3 billion to their executives from 2003 to 2008, "while they presided over the packaging and sale of loans that helped bring down the investment-banking system." [34] The highly generous pay packages include $172 million for Merrill Lynch & Co. CEO Stanley O'Neal from 2003 to 2007, before it was bought by Bank of America in 2008, and $161 million for Bear Stearns Co.'s James Cayne before the bank collapsed and was sold to JPMorgan Chase & Co. in June 2008.[34] Such pay arrangements have attracted the ire of Democrats and Republicans in Congress, who demanded limits on executive pay in 2008 when the U.S. government was bailing out the industry with a $700 billion financial rescue package.[34] Writing in the Global Association of Risk Professionals, Aaron Brown, a vice president at Morgan Stanley, says "By any standard of human fairness, of course, investment bankers make obscene amounts of money." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Investment_bank

Institutional Investors and The Rise of Common Ownership
Since the financial crisis in 2008, the prevences of investors radically changed. Lots of investors moved from riskier actively managed funds (aimed at outperforming the market) to passively managed funds (which follow the market). This financial change has expanded the assets under management of already big institutional assets managers, turning them into giants! Recent studies have shown that these managers are the largest shareholders of 88% of the S&P500 firms. The three biggest investment funds, BlackRock, Vanguard and State Street, have assests under management similar to the GDP of the entire United States! These institutional managers, the evidence shows us, would benefit from overall industry wide success and not individual firm success. Therefore, the question is raised: are passive investors exerting influence on firms they own to compete less? If this is true, what will be the responses of the government? How would breaking up the big three be? And what is the impact of these enormous influencial firms on consumer welfare? Has financial theory forgotten about consumers? We are joined by José Azar and Anna Tzanaki at Room for Discussion to discuss these and many other topics with! José Azar received his Ph.D. and master's degree in Economics from Princeton University, and now is Assistant Professor of economics at the IESE Business School. Anna holds a Ph.D. from the University College London (UCL) Faculty of Laws, and now is a Senior Lecturer at Lund University Faculty of Law, publishing about Antitrust/Competition Law and Corporate Governance.

The Breckoning: The Endgame for Great Britain and Europe in 2019
On March 29, 2019, at 11 p.m. GMT, Great Britain will officially leave the European Union. But the two sides have yet to finalize the grand deals that will define their epochal split. Prime Minister May has proposed a "managed divergence" from E.U. rules, retaining certain economic policies and scrapping others. Meanwhile, the Europeans are taking a tough line on trade. Given that all free-trade rules are, essentially, bespoke, is Britain's approach all that demanding? How are negotiations likely to turn out, and in whose favor?

She says a proposed EU investment plan with Africa is "part of that". Video (dubbed) in English.

Brexit and the UK economy: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly | Dr Carmen Stoian
► SEARCH for a course at the University of Kent: http://bit.ly/2CUKLkF ► Research at Kent: http://bit.ly/2jbvZgS ► SUBSCRIBE for more Think Kent lectures: http://www.youtube.com/user/UniversityofKent?sub_confirmation=1 THINK KENT – INTERNATIONAL THINKERS | GLOBAL IMPACT In this talk, Dr. Carmen Stoian, Lecturer in International Business at Kent Business School, aims to highlight several important questions regarding Brexit and its impact on the UK economy. She starts by discussing the context that surrounds Brexit and then identifies the ‘good side’ of Brexit: the fact that some of the dramatic economic decline predicted by experts has not materialised yet and the fact that the Government’s vision of ‘Global Britain’ has the potential to trigger a virtuous circle of economic development. The talk then highlights the ‘bad side’ of Brexit: the increased political and economic risks associated with the uncertainty surrounding Brexit and the likely negative impact on some aspects of  the UK economy. The talk then concludes with the ‘ugly side’ of Brexit: the exact costs and opportunities of Brexit will only be known after the UK  leaves the EU for good whilst it is still unsure to what extent the promises of Brexit will be fulfilled. ABOUT DR CARMEN STOIAN Dr. Carmen Stoian is a Lecturer in International Business at Kent Business School, University of Kent. She holds a Ph.D. in European Studies from the University of Kent.

Her current research also analyses the institutional determinants of inward and outward foreign direct investment, especially in the context of countries with institutional voids, such as post-communist and emerging economies.

Son of PFI: Who will fund the next wave of British infrastructure investment
The UK government plans to cast its net for investors in infrastructure wider than ever before in the coming years, to include UK pension funds and international private equity firms. But what will these investments look like, and what are the risks for institutional investors? Paul Davies, a PwC partner with nearly 30 years' experience in the field, half of it in banking, will paint a picture of "Son of PFI." His recent experience covers massive projects like the M25 and London underground extensions, the Ministry of Defence's main building and its Allenby Barracks, and his latest, The Green Deal Finance Company, Britain's biggest home improvement plan since the end of the Second World War.

GAM Systematic - Robust Institutional Infrastructure
What’s becoming increasingly apparent to me are a number of features, one is the industry has got increasingly institutional and the institutional money is applying itself to hedge fund investing for a whole variety of different reasons a variety of different asset classes makes an institutional infrastructure even more imperative that it used to be. Not only it’s every cycle goes along you have an incremental amount of capital looks for quantitative or systematic alternatives to discretionary strategies, but actually structurally you are getting a shift towards quantitative, systematic solutions to a lot of the more common and more complex problems that big institutional have. All the has to be housed in industry grade infrastructure, from risk to distribution to operations, all the non-investment stuff has to stand alone as a first class core competency alongside the smarts of building investment products.

Wealth Migrate will do this through the power of the crowd, technology and Collaborative Social InvestingTM, by helping investors have access to invest and partner with the safest and best institutional grade opportunities locally or internationally, while letting real estate providers have access to the depth and quality of global investors, thus creating global wealth for all!

Wealth Migrate’s foundations are built firmly on three core values, trust, transparency and most importantly making sure that everyone’s interests are aligned.

However out of 7 billion people, only 12,9% of people have access to real estate. It greatest barrier to entry is experience, geography and the funding gap. Scott Picken says, “Our mission in driving the Wealth Movement, is to at least double this to 25% globally by 2020 and give access to everyone who is like-minded and understands the power of the crowd working together, just like in nature. As when birds fly in a flock, versus flying on their own, a bird in a flock can fly 70% future than a bird on their own.” http://www.wealthmovement.com #realestate #wealthmigrate #crowdfunding #realestatecrowdfunding #IPS #wealthmovement #empoweryourself #fintech #wealthe #realestate3.0 #wealthpartners #seedrs

Mobilizing Private Sector Finance for Infrastructure in Africa
Cambridge Economic Policy Associates (CEPA) completed a yearlong wide-ranging research programme that was funded by the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development (DFID). The aim of the programme was to understand the main constraints on the flow of private capital to infrastructure projects in DFID’s focus countries in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), excluding South Africa. The research has included: A comprehensive literature review of available studies on the barriers to increasing private finance in infrastructure investment in SSA and South Asia. Detailed country case studies for Ghana, Kenya, Mozambique and Nigeria. These are based on country visits to conduct face-to-face consultations with stakeholders, telephone consultations, and desk research on the constraints on the private provision of infrastructure finance in each country. In addition to these comparator case studies were completed on the Indian and South Africa infrastructure markets. Research to consider if there are any barriers specific to regional infrastructure projects. A report on the barriers to finance from OECD countries. A policy options paper which explores options to address the problems identified. The main finding of the research is that a shortage of bankable projects is the major constraint on mobilizing private capital and is more significant than the lack of availability of finance on suitable terms in DFID’s focus countries in SSA. The research found that many of the projects that are developed are typically not creditworthy, primarily due to the risk associated with their own revenue streams. To deal with this issue, projects need to be offered to the market with appropriate structures and support packages that mitigate these risks. In terms of sources of finance, CEPA found that there is a lack of availability of long-term, local-currency bank and institutional finance. The commercial-bank local-currency finance that exists has generally been for the telecommunications sector and has been provided for more limited tenors of five to seven years. Opportunities for institutional finance have been limited by the prevalence of the project financing approach, which typically precludes opportunities for investments in operational assets by institutional investors. Apart from the case of highly specialized investors, institutional investors such as pension funds require operational and liquid assets, not greenfield, illiquid ones. There is a strong policy rationale for supporting local-currency financing solutions in order to reduce exchange-rate risks.

Abel Danger 9-11-2014 British Invisibles-City of London-Carbon Disclosure Project
British Invisibles itself originated in the Committee on Invisible Exports, set up in April 1968 by the Bank of England and then became the British Invisible Exports Council. It was largely the idea of Cyril Kleinwort who realised that the government was paying much attention to the UK's balance of trade in goods, but little to the UK's invisible earnings from services. In 1984 Patrick Pery, 6th Earl of Limerick had become Chairman of the organisation by which time invisible earnings were accounting for a third of the UK's earnings. He stayed until 1991. On 19 October 1990 the organisation (registered as a company) became British Invisibles. In January 1998 it merged with CEENET, a company set up by the Corporation of London to promote financial services to Eastern Europe, and re-branded itself as BI. It acquired a new Chief Executive, Jeremy Seddon, and a new Deputy Chief Executive, Henrietta Royle. The company was a membership organisation and focused on running promotional events abroad for its members (primarily in the emerging markets), undertaking research on the performance of the financial services industry and providing the secretariat for financial services lobbying in the WTO. BI became known as IFSL on 1 February 2001. Invisibles historically have consisted of services (financial and legal), investment income and transfers. The organisation has in the past published The City Table, giving the order of financial services companies. With effect from 1 June 2010 IFSL, the independent organisation representing the UK financial services industry internationally, has merged its activities, staff and business membership into TheCityUK, the new promotional body for the UK-based industry. TheCityUK is continuing IFSL's work of promoting the industry around the world, influencing trade policy and regulation, and publishing definitive research on the sector. CARBON DISCLOSURE PROJECT Climate change, water scarcity, flooding, pollution and deforestation present material risks and opportunities to investors. In order to protect their long term investments, institutional investors must act to reduce the long-term risks arising from environmental externalities. CDP investor initiatives – backed in 2014 by more than 767 institutional investors representing an excess of US$92 trillion in assets – give investors access to a global source of year-on-year information that supports long-term objective analysis. This includes evidence and insight into companies’ greenhouse gas emissions, water usage and strategies for managing climate change, water and deforestation risks.

Alex Tapscott: "Blockchain Revolution" | Talks at Google
Talks at Google in London were delighted to welcome Alex Tapscott to talk about his book Blockchain Revolution, looking at how the technology behind Bitcoin can reshape the world of business and transform the old order of human affairs for the better. Alex can be found on Twitter at: @alextapscott Book on Google Play - with free first chapter! https://play.google.com/store/books/details/Don_Tapscott_Blockchain_Revolution?id=bwz_CwAAQBAJ About the Book: The technology likely to have the greatest impact on the future of the world economy has arrived, and it's not self-driving cars, solar energy, or artificial intelligence. It’s called the blockchain. The first generation of the digital revolution brought us the Internet of information. The second generation powered by blockchain technology is bringing us the Internet of value: a new, distributed platform that can help us reshape the world of business and transform the old order of human affairs for the better. Blockchain is the ingeniously simple, revolutionary protocol that allows transactions to be simultaneously anonymous and secure by maintaining a tamperproof public ledger of value. Though it's the technology that drives bitcoin and other digital currencies, the underlying framework has the potential to go far beyond these and record virtually everything of value to humankind, from birth and death certificates to insurance claims and even votes. Why should you care? Maybe you're a music lover who wants artists to make a living off their art. And those examples are barely the tip of the iceberg. This technology is public, encrypted, and readily available for anyone to use. It's already seeing widespread adoption in a number of areas. For example, forty-two (and counting) of the world's biggest financial institutions, including Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase, and Credit Suisse, have formed a consortium to investigate the blockchain for speedier and more secure transactions. As with major paradigm shifts that preceded it, the blockchain will create winners and losers. And while opportunities abound, the risks of disruption and dislocation must not be ignored. About the Author: Alex Tapscott is the CEO and Founder of Northwest Passage Ventures, an advisory firm building industry-leading blockchain businesses. Formerly, Alex was a senior executive at Canaccord Genuity, Canada’s largest independent investment bank. At age 25, he became the firm’s youngest-ever Vice President and in 2014, he founded the firm’s blockchain practice. Over his career, Alex has worked tirelessly for his clients, raising hundreds of millions of dollars in growth capital from a global institutional investor base, and provided sound advice and counsel.

China's Economy in Crisis | Inside the Chinese Financial System with Anne Stevenson-Yang
Subscribe to Hidden Forces Here: https://www.hiddenforces.io/ In Episode 16 of Hidden Forces, host Demetri Kofinas speaks with Anne Stevenson-Yang. Anne is the co-founder of J Capital Research, which conducts ground-up, primary research for institutional money managers on stocks, the Chinese economy, and the Chinese financial system. Over 25 years in China, Mrs. Stevenson-Yang has also worked as an industry analyst and trade advocate, heading the US Information Technology Office and the China operations of the US-China Business Council. Anne Stevenson-Yang is the author of the recent book China Alone: China’s Emergence and Potential Return to Isolation, in which she sets out her views on the Chinese economy and political system, arguing that China historically repeats a cycle of expansion and retreat. In this episode, we take a trip to the other side of the world. We travel to the land of China. Our conversation concerns itself with the contemporary changes in Chinese society that came after the death of Chairman Mao. What was life like in China before Nixon and Kissinger made their famous visit in 1971? Why did modernization and reform in China begin after 1978? Who was responsible for the opening in China? What was the role of Deng Xiaoping, and why is he remembered as “the architect” of a new brand of thinking that combined socialist ideology with pragmatic aspects of market economics – a system the Chinese call “Socialism with Chinese Characteristics.” What changes did the Chinese experience between 1979 and 1989, during the implementation of the economic reforms of Deng Xiaoping? How did these reforms culminate into the protests in Tiananmen Square in 1989? What was the Chinese government’s reaction to the uprisings? The Chinese response differed significantly from the Soviet reaction to the fall of the Berlin Wall in the same year. The Chinese government decided to follow a different path after the massacres in Tiananmen Square, by turbocharging economic development. Explicit targets were set for GDP growth. There was selective liberalization of the Chinese economy, particularly in Chinese real estate. China placed a huge emphasis on building its manufacturing industries and on acquiring hard currency through exports. The Chinese financial system remained highly centralized and China’s currency, the renminbi, carefully controlled. All this was used towards re-investment with an almost single-minded commitment to hitting the government’s GDP targets. Some have called the rise of China in the late 20th century a miracle. It is more appropriate to call it “the Chinese miracle.” The size of the Chinese economy has increased more than 25-fold in the last 25 years. Thirty years ago, the Chinese economy measured in at less than 5% of US GDP in exchange terms (perhaps as low as 2%). By 1992, the Chinese economy was only 6% of US GDP. By 2000 China weighed in at roughly 12-15% of US GDP. Today, China boasts a Gross Domestic Product that is roughly 60% that of United States. Loan Growth in the Chinese financial system has averaged 16% in the last 20 years. Loan growth in China reached an all-time high of 35% of GDP in June of 2009, amidst the greatest economic contraction since the Great Depression. Total debt in China recently surpassed 300% of GDP. This makes the finances of Western nations like the United States, France, and the United Kingdom seem frugal by comparison. In the first 7 years since the financial crisis, bank liabilities in the Chinese financial system grew by nearly $15 trillion dollars. This is the near equivalent of the consolidated size of all US commercial banks. China has used more cement in 3 years of massive overbuilding than the U.S. employed in all of the 20th Century. Hundreds of thousands of meters of unsold residential real estate sit empty around the country. There is a massive amount of industrial overcapacity in China. Chinese ghost cities have become almost as cliche as the fake Paris’, Venice, and Dubai’s created within mainland China. The Chinese economy is in terrible need of a recession. But the Chinese government cannot afford the recession that it desperately needs. Nevertheless, it cannot avoid the crisis that has been building in the Chinese financial system. How will the citizens of China, its trading partners, emerging markets and developed economies react when the reckoning finally arrives. How much longer can the Chinese government continue to postpone the inevitable?

UK's Most Resilient Asset Class | CSIprop.com
The most resilient property asset class in the UK today is Purpose Built Student Accommodation (PBSA). The sector, which grew from £500m in 2010 to £6bn in 2015, has seen investments from both individual and institutional investors from all over the world. Demand for the sector is high as there is an undersupply of purpose built accommodation in the UK due to an increase in the number of discerning students looking for more integrative and dedicated living environment. Last year, Singapore companies emerged as the top cross-border investors in student-housing assets with some US$3.3bn having found their way into such properties.
