With so much of the City’s business conducted through digital networks, the threat from malicious actors is real. And yet, while any government help to protect the business community is welcome, the onus of protecting personal data, and providing greater transparency over how it is used, does not fall on the state’s shoulders. whatsapp The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be enacted in less than 16 months. Although it will be implemented during the Article 50 negotiations, those who thought, or perhaps hoped, that Brexit would negate the impending overhaul of data regulation will be disappointed.Survey after survey demonstrates that those who have even heard of GDPR are in the minority, with alarmingly few firms having made plans for the imminent restructure it demands. You only have until May 2018 to assess how your business uses, handles, and processes personally identifiable information, whether belonging to clients, customers or employees.Data governance is at the heart of GDPR, creating significant operational, technical, and organisational obligations for the private sector. Regular audits, impact assessments and the imposition of compulsory data protection officers for some firms will drag many kicking and screaming into this new era.For those still unconvinced, the penalty for compliance failure is up to four per cent of global group revenue, or €20m – whichever is higher. If that doesn’t drive the gravity of data governance to an executive level, nothing will.Beyond GDPR, and to really hammer home quite how serious data governance should be taken, while giving evidence to the Commons committee for the Digital Economy Bill, information commissioner Elizabeth Denham expressed support for making company directors personally liable for breaches of data protection lawGDPR should not be taken as a threat: its virtues have been extolled by many in the data world for years as best practice. Hindsight is a wonderful thing, but had executives taken data governance seriously in the first place, perhaps we would not be here today.

Manager Monitor: Tye Bousada- EdgePoint Wealth Management Inc.

first_imgDiana Cawfield NEO, Invesco launch four index PTFs Franklin Templeton renames funds with new managers Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Bousada, a portfolio manager and co-founder of Toronto-based EdgePoint Wealth Management Inc., has co-managed the fund, with portfolio manager and co-founder Geoff MacDonald, since 2008. The duo is also responsible forEdgePoint Canadian Portfolio,EdgePoint Canadian Growth & Income andEdgePoint Global Growth & Income. They jointly accepted the award for Morningstar Foreign Equity Fund Manager of the Year at theMorningstar Awards gala in November. Bousada credits the five-member investment team, including himself, for the recognition. “It’s definitely not just the Geoff and Tye show.” Bousada has a hard time “pegging our style into value or growth” in the team’s bottom-up investment discipline. Using quantitative and qualitative analysis, the focus is on identifying a business that is going to be bigger in the future, without paying for that growth today. The team considers strong balance sheets and strong free cash flow to be essential. With no constraints across sectors or geography, says Bousada, the team spends an “enormous amount of time” focusing on diversifying by different ideas whose performance will be non-correlated with each other. “Most people define risk as volatility,” says Bousada, “but the real risk we face is if our proprietary insights are wrong. We’ve made mistakes, but when we make mistakes, they’re isolated to that one business idea.” EdgePoint portfolios tend to be concentrated in about 30 names. An individual stock usually does not exceed a 6% weight in the portfolio. The stock-specific strategy has resulted in a current weighting of about 72% in the U.S. “You can’t just look at our geographic allocation,” says Bousada, “and assume that the head office in the U.S. reflects the business.” For example, one of the fund’s largest holdings is Wabco Holdings Inc. (NYSE:WBC), a provider of electronic and mechanical products for commercial trucks and car manufacturers. “Wabco is classified as a U.S. business,” says Bousada, “but over 50% of their revenue is generated from outside the United States.” In an economic climate where safety regulation is increasing, “Wabco’s in the sweet spot,” of being able to offer the technology in a growing market and benefit from the greater importance placed on safety, Bousada adds. “So there’s this tailwind; they’re going to be in a position to grow their business irrespective of what happens to the economy over the long run.” A recent addition to the portfolio is U.S.-based Realogy Holdings Corp. (NYSE:RLGY). The largest real-estate broker in North America, it owns brands like Century 21. “One in five homes that are transacted in the United States go through their network,” says Bousada. Realogy Holdings makes money by leasing its brands and receiving a percentage of the real-estate sale, and also by offering brokers an office and the technology to go along with a brand. “It’s a gorgeous business,” says Bousada, “because there’s no capital employed and it’s a business that is essentially free cash flow.” About nine months ago, people started to get worried over the recovery in U.S. housing and the stock fell in price. “Assuming that their revenue only grows at 3% a year,” says Bousada, “you can make about 10% owning Realogy over the long term of five to 10 years.” A native of Cowansville, Que., Bousada, 43, graduated with an honours business administration degree from the University of Western Ontario in 1993. After graduation, he joined Proctor & Gamble Inc. as a salesman and gained knowledge in the consumer-products industry. In 1996, after developing an interest in investing, Bousada joined the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan Board as an equity analyst. Before long, he worked his way up to become portfolio manager of a Canadian portfolio. Three years later, Bousada was recruited by Bob Krembil, who headed the then-named Trimark Investment Management Inc., a predecessor firm of Invesco Canada Ltd. In 2000, Bousada was promoted to co-manager of Trimark Fund, and became the lead manager in 2004. Aspiring to be an entrepreneur, Bousada left Invesco in January 2008. He then helped found EdgePoint Wealth Management and launch Cymbria Corp., a closed-end fund, along with colleagues MacDonald, Patrick Farmer and Krembil. Cymbria holds about a 20% stake in EdgePoint Wealth Management, which manages just over $7 billion in assets, including institutional accounts. EdgePoint’s investment team and other staff co-invest with their clients, with their personal holdings in EdgePoint funds totalling about $80 million. Over the past five years ended Nov. 30, the 5-star Morningstar EdgePoint Global Portfolio returned 15.5% compared with the median 10.2% return in the Global Equity category. Looking ahead, Bousada’s expectations for fund performance are more modest. “I think a good return going forward would be somewhere in the 7% to 9% range,” he says. “What we’ve been able to achieve over the last six years likely won’t be able to be replicated. We started in 2008 when the markets were lower in terms of valuation than where they are today, so it’s only reasonable to expect lower returns in the future.” Tye Bousada, co-manager of the $2.9-billionEdgePoint Global Portfolio, is unconstrained in seeking the best investment opportunities. “Over 57% of the businesses that we own in our portfolio aren’t even in the MSCI World Index,” says Bousada. “That speaks to being able to go out there and come up with those unique insights, looking different from the crowd.” center_img Keywords Fund managersCompanies EdgePoint Capital Partners Inc.

Immigrants make retirement savings a priority

first_img Change to trust rules creates possible pitfall for new Canadians Royal Bank breaks down language barrier for newcomers Two-thirds of the surveyed immigrants also reveal that they send a portion of their money back home to friends or family. “It can be incredibly stressful, financially and otherwise, to pick up, move to another country and begin the process of creating a new life for yourself. It’s great to see that new Canadians do have a bit of a nest egg remaining,” says Julie Barker-Merz, president, BMO InvestorLine. It is critical that those who are new to the country ensure their money continues to work for them by acquainting themselves with the basics of saving and investing in their new environment. This is where online research and the help of a financial professional can help, she adds. The survey also found that approximately one-fifth of immigrants come to Canada with an older relative and 37% arrive in the country with at least one child. There are multiple reasons why people choose to come to this country. Slightly less than half (46%) come for greater safety. Improved education is another reason for many, with 36% choosing this option and 38% coming for a better job. One-third of respondents want access to better government programs. Two-thirds (67%) of immigrants feel their standard of living has improved since arriving, with 27% saying it has improved greatly. This study is the first in a series called “Making the financial transition,” which examines a variety of financial issues related to new Canadians. Pollara Strategic Insights conducted the survey between Feb. 4 and 19, using an online sample of 507 people who have immigrated to Canada in the past 10 years. Tessie Sanci Keywords Immigrants Immigrants arrive in Canada with an average of $47,000 in savings to help them settle in their new country, according to a survey conducted for the wealth management arm of Toronto-based Bank of Montreal (BMO). After taking care of initial expenses that are associated with moving to a new country, immigrants are left with an average of $20,000 and use the rest of their money to save for things like retirement (53%), children’s education (49%), a large purchase like a home or a car (44%) or a trip (36%). center_img Related news Help new Canadian parents achieve critical financial goals Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Facebook LinkedIn Twitterlast_img read more

NASAA survey highlights greater need for senior financial fraud detection

first_img The NASAA survey finds that 97% of regulators surveyed feel that most cases of senior financial fraud “go undetected rather than being discovered before they cause serious problems.” The survey also notes that a similar share of regulators say that there is now greater awareness of senior investment fraud than there was a year ago. Despite the increased awareness, regulators are not seeing a decline in senior fraud cases, according to the survey, and 29% of regulators report that fraud has increased. Regulators surveyed also indicate that they think that broker-dealers and investment advisors could be doing more to help prevent senior fraud. Regulators in jurisdictions that have adopted laws that are designed to help industry firms report suspected instances of senior fraud say that they have been able to prevent senior financial exploitation as a result. “It is imperative that we detect and prevent senior financial fraud before criminals who prey on our most vulnerable citizens steal from and devastate them,” says Mike Rothman, NASAA president and Minnesota Commissioner of Commerce, in a statement. “The clear message from our NASAA members, who are the securities regulators on the frontlines, is that we need everyone to step up and apply greater resources to stop financial fraud against seniors.” The survey was conducted by NASAA from July 24 to Aug. 4. Photo copyright: highwaystarz/123RF James Langton Most fraud against seniors likely goes undiscovered, suggests a new survey of state securities regulators released on Monday by the North American Securities Administrators Association (NASAA).

These include having adequate and clearly defined entrances and exits, as well as ensuring that passageways, aisles, and staircases have sufficient space to facilitate the safe and comfortable movement of individuals.One regulation stipulates that aisles and staircases should be no less than four feet wide. Additionally, that adequate security measures should be in place to prevent patrons from entering the premises with firearms and other weapons.Mr. Montague warned that local authorities face stiff sanctions, if they fail to enforce the regulations, and has instructed that a report of the assessments be forwarded him at the Department of Local Government.center_img Mayors Instructed to Conduct Assessments of Places of Amusement UncategorizedNovember 3, 2008 Advertisementslast_img read more
