End of the road, it’s now November,
it’s been a great year, I told last night a bartender
So much has happened, I seem to remember,
happy feelings these memories appear to engender.
Harry and Meghan are gone, he was sort of speaking,
for that I am sure, I won’t be weeping.
I’ll soon take my leave, I need some sleeping,
as to organise I need, our Annual Meeting.
What is that thing? The man inquired
a designation, said I, and very hard acquired.
I might have been somewhat inspired,
as to what we stand for he did admired.

China fixed income is entering the mainstream of the investment world, propelled by capital inflows passing through China’s opening doors. Foreign institutions held a record RMB 1.4 trillion of Chinese bonds at the end of September, with the amount of foreign holdings expanding for 19 months in a row*.

Practitioners' Insights: Airlines Sector in India

29 November 2018, 8:00 PM | Online
CFA Institute | 1 CE

The aviation industry, globally, plays a critical role in the economy. The sector in turn, is influenced by the economic environment and is highly cyclical. The airlines sector is also closely linked to the development of other sectors like airports, tourism, hotels, business travel and aerospace. But the sector is vulnerable to events like natural disasters, geopolitical developments and terrorism. In a developing economy like India, the demand for air travel is highly price sensitive, constraining the sector’s ability to pass on cost increases. While the airline industry has been experiencing a rapid demand growth in India, the industry has also been in the news for large financial stress faced by many of its players.
In this webinar, Subrata Ray, CFA, Senior Group Vice President, ICRA Limitedwill discuss the opportunities and challenges in India's airlines sector. 


Portfolio Benefits of Active Ownership and Good Corporate Governance; Athanase Industrial Partner’s experience in the Nordic Markets

29 November 2018, 7:00 PM | Tokyo, Japan
CFA Society Japan | 1.5 CE Credit

Constructive shareholder involvement in corporate governance can enhance returns for all shareholders and positively impact corporate social responsibility. 

The Nordic corporate governance model in which the largest shareholders elect the nomination committee of the company board, instead of being elected by an internal nomination committee, clearly separates the board's duties from the selection of thereof. The set-up allows the larger shareholders to gain board positions and influence the corporate strategy and social responsibility. Active Ownership aims to improve operational, financial, and share price performance of portfolio companies.

Investment professionals from the buy side, sell side, as well as corporations and other related stakeholders should be aware of common pitfalls and information boundaries that all professionals need to observe.
Mr. Suresh Gupta, a senior regulator from SEBI, has a ringside view of the regulatory landscape of insider trading. In this interactive session, Mr. Gupta will provide insights on the topic of insider trading. This webinar will include:

  • required standards of practice
  • common pitfalls
  • case studies
