I clicked on the Claim CPD button but my CPD has not been recorded
When you click the Claim CPD button you should be redirected to the online CPD form to complete. If the form fails to load after clicking the button it could be caused by slow internet speed or an interrupted connection – it is worth reporting to the VLE Team so they can look into the issue. Your CPD claim will only update if you have completed the form and clicked the submit button
The Claim CPD button is restricted to one use even if you experience technical issues before submitting your claim – if there is a blue tick in the box to the right of the Claim CPD button this indicates the button has been used and you won’t be able to use it again. You will therefore need to add your claim manually and request verification of your viewing from the VLE Team.
If you are experiencing any other issues with accessing IFoA video content or recording your CPD please contact VLE.email@example.com.

Retail banking is going through a period of substantial change as it moves into the digital age. Banks have large amounts of data about their customers and about their risks. Open data application programming interface (APIs) and data science are enabling banks to use their data to offer innovative and sometimes personalised services. Data science is also adding value in risk areas such as fraud detection and cyber security. At the same time, the move to online banking is making it easier for firms including fintechs to enter banking without having to establish branch networks.
Cash-flow driven investing is a game-changer for DB pension funds navigating their end-game. Suitable for sponsors who want to reduce risks on their balance sheets. And for trustees, it shifts the focus to providing greater certainty of returns, managing funding level volatility and ensuring they have enough income to pay cash-flow requirements.
