Background to AFOLU

The BEI and Climate Bonds Initiative have partnered to accelerate consensus on green bond standards and therefore contribute to the stable growth of the green bond market.

Issuance by governments, corporates and financial institutions in the AFOLU sectors could relate to a wide variety of investments, including sustainable improvements in productivity of land or fisheries and or financing programmes for suppliers and associated infrastructure or technology requirements.

Recent analysis has identified over US$ 4bn in outstanding bonds aligned with the AFOLU sector. The International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis estimates that future financing needs focused on deforestation and land degradation could be up to US$ 50bn per year by 2020.

What is the Climate Bonds Standard?

The Climate Bonds Standard is the only international certification standard for the bond market. There are over 80+ organisations involved in its development with member organisations holding over US$ 34tn in Assets Under Management.

The AFOLU guidance has been led by a Technical Working Group, comprised of internationally recognized experts, complemented by an Industry Working Group of over 30 leading corporations.

The AFOLU Standard is kindly supported by Credit Suisse, the Swiss Government and Rabobank.

Joint investor outreach event: Milan—22 October 2015

Joint investor outreach event: Milan—22 October 2015

  • Could the proposals in the Conceptual Framework Exposure Draft make profit or loss (P&L) more useful?
  • What you need to know about IFRS 9 Financial Instruments
The International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), in conjunction with the European Financial Reporting Advisory Group (EFRAG), the European Federation of Financial Analysts Societies (EFFAS) and the Associazione Italiana degli Analisti e Consulenti Finanziari (AIAF), invite investors to participate in a joint outreach event.

We are actively seeking input from investors on the proposed changes to the Conceptual Framework for Financial Reporting. One of the topics we will consider at this event is how to improve the usefulness of the statement of profit or loss (the P&L).

Join us to share your views on how the P&L could better meet your needs:

  • Is the P&L the starting-point for your analysis? If not, what is?
  • Are there items included in the P&L that you eliminate? If so, what are they?
  • Are there items that you need but that you do not find in the P&L?
  • Are there items shown in Other Comprehensive Income (OCI) that you include in your analysis? If you do not use OCI, why not?
  • Should bad news (adverse litigation, for example) be reflected in the P&L earlier than good news that is expected but still uncertain?
  • When assets are measured at fair value through P&L, how do you treat the gains and losses associated with the changes in value during the period?
  • What is the importance of stewardship to your work as an investor?

The discussion will feature a panel of leaders in the investment management industry and the accounting standard-setting community.

It will be followed by an educational session from Fred Nieto, IASB Investor Education Manager, on the new requirements for accounting for financial instruments in IFRS 9. A panel of experts will also report on their first experience and impressions, with an investor focus.

For further details and registration please read the formal invitation here. Please register before October 16

GARP Webinar : Basel III Standardized Approach – New Capital Requirements for Mid-Tier Banks . 16 Sept 830pm IST

Basel III Standardized Approach – New Capital Requirements for Mid-Tier Banks

Date: Tuesday, September 16, 2014
Time: 11:00 am EDT | 4:00 pm BST | 11:00 pm HKT
Duration: 60 minutes
Register here
Abstract:
US Basel III requirements will have a significant impact on over 1,000 U.S. banks with asset sizes of over $500 million. With effect from 2015, these banking organizations are expected to comply with US Basel III minimum regulatory capital ratios, and apply the Standardized Approach for calculating RWAs. Moving to the Basel III Standardized Approach from Basel I can be a quantum leap for many banks. Mid-tier banks must have the ability to manage granular data elements and compute RWAs for different asset classes.

In this webcast, our experts will focus on:

  • How small-to-mid sized banks can avoid regulatory pitfalls
  • Making accurate capital calculations
  • Producing regulator-ready reports without huge ramp-up times, staff, and costs.

Moderator:
Eric Kavanagh, The Bloor Group
Presenters:
Tom Kimner, Head of Americas Risk Practice, SAS Institute

Webinar : Generating Alpha: Predicting Volatility and Corrections, June 11, 930pm IST

Generating Alpha: Predicting Volatility and Corrections, Wednesday, June 11, 2014 09:30:00 PM IST – 10:45:00 PM IST
Michael A. Gayed, CFA, and Charlie Bilello, CMT, of Pension Partners, LLC co-authored two award-winning papers in 2014 that challenge the efficient market hypothesis by revealing market anomalies that have persisted over time. In separate papers, they focus on the utilities sector and Treasury bonds, providing a systematic way to outperform the market on an absolute and risk-adjusted basis. Importantly, they also show how the unique behavior of utilities and Treasuries can be used to anticipate periods of higher volatility and market corrections. Their work has important implications for both asset allocators and active managers.
 
You can download both papers from the Social Science Research Network (SSRN): “An Intermarket Approach to Beta Rotation” (http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=2417974) and “An Intermarket Approach to Tactical Risk Rotation” (http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=2431022).
