    At Davos this year, there is a greater sense of urgency behind stakeholder capitalism, leading corporate executives to explore how their companies can benefit all stakeholders, including customers, employees, suppliers, communities and shareholders. 

    After the U.S. Business Roundtable announced its move away from shareholder capitalism toward a commitment to all stakeholders, stakeholder capitalism, or the idea that “positions private corporations as trustees of society,” has gained significant momentum.

    But it isn’t a new idea.

    During a panel discussion on “Leading a 21st-Century Corporation” at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, McKinsey & Co. Global Managing Partner Kevin Sneader noted that the idea of stakeholder capitalism first arose in 1759 from Adam Smith, the author of “The Wealth of Nations.”

    “[Smith] was very clear in saying that the responsibility of the business person...

    Thousands of prominent business leaders, heads of state, entrepreneurs and innovators are gathering in Davos, Switzerland for the 50th annual World Economic Forum, where sustainability and other environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues will be the primary focus. While ESG is becoming mainstream in the U.S. after years of maturing in Europe, this year may be the “tipping point” for ESG, according to Nasdaq President and CEO Adena Friedman.

    “Last year, I predicted that 2019 would be a big year for the emergence of ESG, and there were real signs of progress – particularly as ESG decision-making rose to the Board C-suite level across many industries,” Friedman shared yesterday in a LinkedIn post ahead of Davos. “2020 is increasingly looking like it may be the ‘tipping point’ year for ESG investing.”

    For some, digital transformation relates to marketing and communications. For others, it is about reimagining ways to bring together people, data and processes to help engage clients, empower employees, optimize operations and fundamentally transform products and services.

    But no matter the end goal, at the core of this innovation lies data creation and the ability to process data at scale and in real time to create more connected, intelligent processes, products and platforms.

    Our fourth annual tech report identifies three key technology trends that are bringing these concepts to life and reshaping markets everywhere:

    Machine-to-Machine Communication (M2M): The creation of data through machine-to-machine communication and the Internet of Things (IoT) without human intervention, allowing businesses to scale by ingesting and computing large volumes of data in real time

    Nasdaq Thu 23 Jan 2020 17:51

    Our recent note discussed the merits of our new Intelligent Ticks Proposal.

    One of the ways this proposal differs from tick limits set in other countries’ markets is to “let the market decide” what tick a stock should have, rather than setting the tick based on changes in a stock’s price and/or liquidity.

    Today we explain how our industry group came to this idea, and why it works better for all stocks. In addition to Nasdaq participants, this working group included Enrico Cacciatore from Voya Investment Management, John Comerford from Credit Suisse, Chris Iacovella from the American Securities Association (ASA), Mehmet Kinak from T. Rowe Price, Justin Schack from Rosenblatt Securities and Eric Swanson from XTX Markets.
