Guterres & 2021-3 the most urgent years to collaborate round UN Leadership

 The world is very lucky that Antonio Guterres is leading UN collabs 2022-2023. See his life experience curves and peoples dedication (arguably the second most dedicated servant leader in Franciscan tradition after Pope Francis - before he headed the UN he headed its refugee actions through every community with the urgent crises refugees map; previously he had led Portugal ( he knows what its is like leading a nation, and one incidentally at far end of the EU's comprehension - ed note I helped design the largest every survey of how an EU budget on a nation had been spent in the early 1990s - he was well placed to learn from PEDIP

ON the UN's 75th in 2021 Guterres launched UN2.0, and leapt forward with operational branches of UN's application of Artificial Intel and FinTech

At UNGA in 2021 , Guterres report Common Agenda has earmarked 2023 as the optimal year for the UN to host summit future - in many ways this will be a bottom up complement as cop26-cop28 rolls on. The world is also hugely fortunate that Indonesia hosts teh G20 in 2022 . How else can we help Guterres maximise leadership and grassroots mapping of sdg collaborations

g1:21 COLLABorations

 Since 2007we got some advance notice of subprime-we have merged 2025report.com analysis first made in 1984 with  collabs sustainability millennials research - see eg www.economistwomen.com - we have been trying to map where community collaborations entrepreneurially took back control of their own future sustainability (matching work on that my dad  norman macrae first published in the economist in 1962; with support of eg romani prodi 1976 entrepreneurial revolution; and gifford pinchot intrapreneur 1982)  

urgency multiplies when you consider half-time sdgs 2022=9; guterres timeline 2023 summitfuture:

we have come to the conclusion that the way tech interacts in the 2020s with the 5 primary markets revolving round sdg1-5 times  together with  xfactors (change to green, change infrastructure/commons, where humans give control to machines to run realtime systems ie humansAI  matter most

so we will be paying particular attention to logging up zooms and diary of events round

we welcome collaborative recommendations chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk

About the Webinar

After the success of M-Pesa in Kenya, mobile money leapt to the forefront of development conversations about financial access and inclusion. In the years since, digitalization has proliferated and diversified, from digital payments systems, to digital currencies backed by a central bank (CBDC), to cryptocurrencies. What does this mean for financial inclusion? Which uses of digital money can solve real access and inclusion problems, and which are techno-optimistic “solutions” in search of problems?

Join the Financial Access Initiative's Tim Ogden in conversation with Jesse McWaters, the Global Head of Regulatory Advocacy at Mastercard, to explore some basic frameworks for understanding the differences between the rapidly growing types of digital currencies. Through this session you’ll gain a better grasp of new and evolving digital means of exchange, how they interact, and what that means for pro-poor financial inclusion. 

We'll talk about how payments systems are different from digital currencies, and how digital currencies are different from cryptocurrencies. Do digital currencies fundamentally change the dynamics of inclusion and exclusion? What does crypto add (or subtract) from the story? What should you be paying attention to, what questions do you need to be asking, and what can you roll your eyes at? Then, we’ll have lots of time for you to ask questions or share your perspectives.

    About the Event

    Even as a vaccine light at the end of the pandemic tunnel grows brighter every day, institutional investors are still predicting significant headwinds in the near term as social, political and economic upheaval continues to dominate headlines and roil markets. The economic effects of the pandemic in many ways significantly altered the financial landscape that faced investors at the beginning of 2020, and while the core issues—fee pressures, low rates, volatility—have not fundamentally changed, they have been greatly exacerbated. But among the uncertainty lies opportunity. Even as many investors begin 2021 in defensive postures, there is a case to be made that those who adopt aggressive, active postures throughout the year may be best positioned to benefit the most from any significant economic rebounds. An increased risk appetite could mean outsized returns for those with the mettle to put money to work in sectors such as emerging market equities and alternatives, including Bitcoin, private debt and private equity. At this year’s Bloomberg Invest Global we will again focus on the key issues driving institutional investment strategies, offering valuable insights from top investors on how smart money can safely navigate an uncertain and risky environment. We’ll take the measure of the recovery and put 2021’s most popular strategies under the microscope to see what has worked and what hasn’t as we look ahead to 2022.

    Themes

    Economic recovery

    Despite robust growth through the first two quarters of this year, the economic effects of the pandemic continue to be a drag on significant sectors as demand has outstripped supply slowing growth. When will the world return to pre-pandemic levels and how long will it take to get there?


    Policy matters more than ever

    From pandemic response to stimulus efforts, policy makers received mixed reviews in 2020, but one thing seems certain—politics might dominate the headlines but it’s going to be policy that drives prosperity into the future.



    The test for active
    management

    While 2020 did not necessarily produce the outperformance many active managers had hoped for, despite the predictions proponents made regarding the importance of active management during the crisis, neither did 2020 put a nail in active’s coffin. With negative interest rates and volatility top of mind for many investors, there is still room and time for active managers to adjust strategies to outperform their passive counterparts.


    Bitcoin: The Trillion Dollar
    Question

    Despite ongoing volatility and a lack of general understanding of BTC as an asset class, there is no denying that Bitcoin is at least on the minds of every major investor in 2021. As Bitcoin’s market capitalization steadily inches toward $1 trillion USD, the otherworldly returns and the beginnings of institutional frameworks for custodianship and regulation are giving the world’s leading digital currency much-needed heft when it comes to convincing the markets’ biggest players of its staying power.

    The hunt for yield and
    allocation

    Even as defensive positions will likely rule the day, the hunt for yield will dictate new tactics when it comes to allocations. A trim in U.S. equities could mean more money to allocate to emerging market, European, and Asian stocks. Likewise, fixed income portfolios might see an increase in ESG/green bonds to offset potential negative rates; and alternatives could also see a boost as investments in private equity, private debt, infrastructure, gold, and cryptocurrencies.


    Equity strategy
    .

    Time will tell whether a focus on value, small cap and emerging markets will be a winning formula for 2021, but indicators point to strengthening performance amid rising allocations to riskier segments of the equity market as risk tolerance grows, backed by stronger earnings momentum and easing macro pressures.
