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 no, eight years later, the conversation has shifted. The issues have moved mainstream, the dialogue has broadened, and the voices are many. The needle may not have moved substantially, but change is afoot. And so, this year we too are making a change. This year, the WAI Report is about action. This year, we expose gaps in perception across gender to lay the groundwork for shared understanding. We spotlight investors’ increased focus on diversity in the hopes that it spurs others to action. And we outline firm diversity practices to show others the way forward in their own efforts.

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.

Performance evaluation is coming of age. Once a narrow, back office role focused solely on crunching returns, it has become ever more integrated into the DNA of investment firms. Both internally and externally, performance evaluation adds value, helping senior management make key judgement calls where the difference between the right solution and the wrong solution is the difference between growth or decline. The performance analyst of the future will provide valuable input into nearly every area of an investment firm. What began as a mathematical task—calculating investment returns—is morphing into something much broader. The objective of performance evaluation today is determining what is behind the return being analyzed. What were the key drivers—allocation or selection? What risk was taken to achieve the return? Was it skill, or was it luck, that produced the return?

Even with the greatest level of talent on your in-house legal team, you will at some point, need the services of external counsel. When an organization rates its outside law firms, selecting just the right data might be a challenge. Business leaders may not be lawyers, so it may be necessary to rely on the self-assessment of firms to determine the “health” of their programs. But does it need to be that subjective? Hard data is an essential tool when it comes to performance evaluation. There are specific metrics organizations can use to evaluate law firm performance. While it may not be “all about the money,” these key metrics can provide insight into how your panel handles its work and the value of the results you receive.

In der heutigen Wirtschaftswelt stellt die Geschäftskontinuität eine absolute Notwendigkeit dar. Wenn Unternehmen die digitale Transformation in Angriff nehmen und sich bezüglich aller wesentlichen Prozesse an die IT wenden, können solche Ausfallzeiten die Firma lähmen. Firmen, die in der Lage sind, Technologieausfälle transparent zu handhaben (und dadurch Geschäfte ungehindert betreiben können), erzielen hierdurch erhebliche Vorteile hinsichtlich des Wettbewerbs, der Kundenbindung und Geschäftsinnovation. Das Erreichen der höchsten Stufe der Geschäftskontinuität, also das Ziel, die Wiederherstellungspunkte (Recovery Point Objectives, RPOs) und Wiederherstellungszeiten (Recovery Time Objectives, RTOs) auf den Wert von null zu senken, war jedoch nur für die größten Unternehmen durch ihre geschäftsentscheidenden Anwendungen möglich. Den meisten Unternehmen waren die damit verbundenen Kosten und die einhergehende Komplexität zu hoch, um eine solche Stufe zu erreichen. Dies ist jedoch nic

For the second year, we asked 500 panelists their feelings and perceptions regarding the state of brickand- mortar retail. The results may surprise you. Our research found that, although sales associates are generally viewed neutrally, specific sectors such as consumer electronics stores and momand- pop shops have a positive perception. Consumers seek out sales associates who are educated and able to help them make an informed purchase. Our results also confirmed prior reporting1 into the growing fluidity between e-commerce and traditional retail. More than 75 percent of our panelists reported frequently browsing online, then purchasing the product in-store. Sales associates who are educated about the products in their store are more likely to sell more. Brands that ensure that their sales teams have the proper product knowledge maximize the likelihood that consumers will purchase from them.

In a global and highly regulated marketplace, pharmaceutical and biotech firms face a challenge in managing regulatory labeling submissions that meet multiple country and regional requirements in many different languages. This process has historically required substantial manual intervention and review by highly paid professionals, contributing to unnecessary costs and delays in medicinal product launches. Biopharma executives hope that new, cloud-based tools will help solve this costly dilemma. To market their products globally, biopharmaceutical firms must ensure their product information complies with local regulatory filing requirements. Submissions often need to be revised to reflect in-country linguistic, formatting, and timing mandates. In-country compliance is usually overseen by local affiliates that manage the process internally. Tasks such as translation and formatting are typically outsourced to in-country providers.

Financial services organizations operate under a host of regulatory standards. This makes sense, as the assets and information managed by these firms are valuable, sensitive, and targeted by sophisticated cyber attackers daily. Compounding these challenges is the large volume of personally identifiable information (PII) that financial organizations handle regularly. PII is subject to many compliance regulations, notably the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which regulates not only the processing of personal data, including PII, relating to individuals in the EU, for also any organization that processes personal data of EU residents. For US banking consumers, Section 5 (Unfair or Deceptive Acts or Practices) of the Federal Trade Commission Act and numerous state regulations enforce basic consumer protections, which financial organizations must also uphold.
