Marino Simone Sovereign Wealth Funds

Sovereign Wealth Funds have been subject to ever-increasing concerns and little scientific analysis. As a consequence of their recent gain in prominence, significant worries have been expressed as Sovereign Wealth Funds, being large state-owned institutional investors, may eventually take investment decisions driven more by political and/or other objectives than by pure economic considerations. We investigate their investment decision drivers and rationale to invest and we provide a data-supported analysis of what really drives their investments. The study is based on a widely-recognized and proven econometric model, adapted where necessary in order to take into account Sovereign Wealth Funds' peculiarities and some accepted critics. The sample analyzed covers more than 300 companies invested in the last 30 years and domiciled in 29 countries. The model allows us to extract the drivers which lie behind targets' public equity returns. The drivers have been defined in terms of either economic justifiable or other-than-economic news. Based on the ex-post results, we infer what is likely to drive sovereign investments. Results are twofold.

Innovation in construction is essential for growth. The industry strives to remain competitive using a variety of approaches and needs to engage structured initiatives linked to proven innovation concepts, techniques and applications. Even in mature markets like the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) sector, where business behaviour is generally considered as being risk averse, it is increasingly important to embed innovation into mainstream business practices. In Construction Innovation and Process Improvement a number of wide ranging issues from construction practice in different countries with different contexts are presented to provide a rich collection of literature embracing theory and practice. Chapters are divided into three broad themes of construction innovation relating to: Theory and Practice; Process Drivers; and Future Technologies. Several questions are posed, including for example: What is particularly unique about construction innovation in theory and practice? What are the major drivers of construction innovation? What factors are needed to support and deliver future construction technologies? In attempting to respond to such questions, the book sheds new light on these challenges, and provides readers with a number of ways forward, especially cognisant of the increased role of globalisation, the enhanced impact of knowledge, and importance of innovation. All these can have a significant impact on strategic decision-making, competitive advantage, and sustainable policies and practices. Part One deals with change management, technology, sustainable construction, and supply chain management; Part Two addresses innovation and process improvement drivers, including strategic management, concurrent engineering, risk management, innovative procurement, knowledge management; Part Three explores future technologies in construction – and particularly, how these can be harnessed and leveraged to help procure innovation and process improvement.

Jana Robertson Effects of humans interfering in nature exemplified by the living conditions of whales

Pre-University Paper from the year 2018 in the subject Biology - Miscellaneous, grade: 1,0, , language: English, abstract: What are the main reasons for whales being threatened to the point of extinction? How severely does pullution, and the current problem of plastic rubbish, that is spreading to an unimaginable level, endanger whales? What impact does captivity have on the behaviour of whales? And what can we do to end whale hunting and the cruelty that these animals must face daily?The aim of this paper is to show how modern-day human behaviour is affecting the lives of many other species on planet earth - especially in our oceans. My work is divided into two main subjects: Firstly, how humans affect nature using the example of whales and, secondly, measures previously and currently taken to protect whales. The first chapter is subdivided into the following areas: threats caused by overfishing, contamination and pollution, subaqueous noise and changes in behaviour in whales held in captivity. The second chapter has been structured into three sections: intensification of regulations relating to whaling, measures that every individual can undertake to support organisations working towards the rescue of the marine environment and, finally, what these organisations actually do to help.

Robert Friedrich European Convergence in Property Valuation

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: The dissertation analyses whether or not and to what extent the managers of German open-ended property funds see a necessity for amendments to the current German property valuation standards in the context of an increasing demand for European convergence in valuation practice. A critical review of the literature is structured in two chapters: (1) European valuation convergence; and (2) legal background and valuation standards in Germany in a European context. Three main drivers for European convergence have been identified, namely international investment, International Accounting Standards (IAS) and the new Basel Capital Accord. The main standard setting organisations with a European scope are the IVSC, TEGoVA and RICS. German standards are highly regulated by law (BauGB, KAGG, WertV, WertR). However, the relevant valuation basis in Germany mainly complies with its international counterpart. Three methods are outlined in the German standards (WertV), but additional approaches are allowed according to the guidelines (WertR). Systematic differences could be identified between the German investment method and relevant international approaches. The main German specialities in this regard are separation of value for land and building, consideration of only one income (sustainable long-term rent) and arriving at gross values. The Cost Approach is meaningless for the valuation of open-ended funds. Alternative international approaches are Term & Reversion...

Naomi Bareket The Deep See. How to See into Your Soul and Find Who You Are and Want to Be

Have you ever been with someone where you are both seeing the same event, yet you both come away with two completely different interpretations of what you just saw? In the book THE DEEP SEE, I talk about a picture that I often use in my classes to help students see how different their perspectives can be. In the picture, a cat is looking at a mirror in which it sees its reflection as a tiger. I ask the students to interpret what they are seeing, experiencing, and feeling as they look at the picture. Inevitably, the responses widely vary. What can cause people to see the same thing yet see it so differently? The answer is perspective. As the book describes, we all view things through our own filters, which have been defined over the course of our lifetimes. Our upbringing, culture, religion (or lack of one), political views, work experience, and even our mood at that moment shape what we see, how we feel, and what we interpret. The book demonstrates that listening to others’ perspectives is often very telling because we all tend to project our life views into the sights we see and the experiences we have. By analyzing our own answers to what we see, we will often gain clues to what is abundant or missing in our own lives. So are you seeing what you think you are seeing? Yes, you are! Just remember you are not seeing things from an unfiltered perspective. And you are the one who gives meaning to what you see. THE DEEP SEE helps you inquire deeper into your real you and shows yo...

The market for infrastructure is vast and, contrary to popular belief, the range of potential infrastructure investments is extremely broad. An investor who does not have a sufficient overview and insight into the infrastructure market or an awareness of the suitable investment opportunities and the risks they entail, will find it difficult to select the right investments. This book is a comprehensive guide to the subject, bringing together the topics of infrastructure investments, project finance and public private partnerships (PPPs), equipping investors with the necessary theoretical knowledge and background information as well as practical examples in order to further their understanding of the key aspects of infrastructure investments. It answers questions such as: How is infrastructure defined? Which sectors are classified as infrastructure, how are they categorised, and what are the differences between them? Is infrastructure an asset class in its own right? If so, what are its characteristics? What are the fundamental options for investing in infrastructure? What is a good starting point for institutional investors? How should infrastructure funds be evaluated? What risks do they entail and how can these risks be identified and assessed? How should they be structured in order to best allocate these risks? The book discusses the differing objectives and expectations of the parties involved and the conditions required by public principals and investors in order to enable these groups to overcome the ?language problems? they largely encounter. In addition to background knowledge and information on the latest developments in the individual subject areas, the book also explains the methodology of project finance in detail, both for traditional project finance and in the PPP context, establishing the key differences to other forms of financing, guiding readers through the various phases of project analysis on a step-by-step basis using practical examples. Well structured infrastructure investments can serve to improve the risk-return profile of an investor?s overall portfolio on account of their long term and their low level of correlation with traditional asset classes. This book will assist investors in their understanding of infrastructure investments, leading to a better informed portfolio. «A comprehensive and well-written overview of many relevant topics in the infrastructure sector; a useful guide for everyone involved or interested in the infrastructure area.» Henk Huizing, Head of Infrastructure, PGGM «A comprehensive book that effectively marries the topics of infrastructure investing, project finance and PPPs as well as bridges the gap between the theoretical and the practical – the authors are to be commended on this work.» Marc S. Lipschultz, Global Head of Energy and Infrastructure, Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. «Quite a book and one that should definitely be part of the toolkit of those who are interested in the Infrastructure asset class. Had this comprehensive work been available ten years ago, no doubt, one or two of us certainly would have done things differently. So, let's keep it closely at hand as a guide for the future that helps us deliver even better outcomes for all stakeholders and enables us to further develop the asset class.» Ron Boots, Senior Portfolio Manager – Co head Infrastructure Investments, APG All Pensions Group

An authoritative introduction to the roles of switching and transmission in broadband integrated services networks Principles of Broadband Switching and Networking explains the design and analysis of switch architectures suitable for broadband integrated services networks, emphasizing packet-switched interconnection networks with distributed routing algorithms. The text examines the mathematical properties of these networks, rather than specific implementation technologies. Although the pedagogical explanations in this book are in the context of switches, many of the fundamental principles are relevant to other communication networks with regular topologies. After explaining the concept of the modern broadband integrated services network and why it is necessary in today’s society, the book moves on to basic switch design principles, discussing two types of circuit switch design—space domain and time domain—and packet switch design. Throughput improvements are illustrated by some switch design variations such as Speedup principle, Channel-Grouping principle, Knockout principle, and Dilation principle. Moving seamlessly into advanced switch design principles, the book covers switch scalability, switch design for multicasting, and path switching. Then the focus moves to broadband communications networks that make use of such switches. Readers receive a detailed introduction on how to allocate network resources and control traffic to satisfy the quality of service requirements of network users and to maximize network usage. As an epilogue, the text shows how transmission noise and packet contention have similar characteristics and can be tamed by comparable means to achieve reliable communication. Principles of Broadband Switching and Networking is written for senior undergraduate and first-year postgraduate students with a solid background in probability theory.

Jesus said, "Go everywhere and make them my disciples by baptizing them" (Matthew 28:19). Baptism is, therefore, one of the main aspects of Christian life, and it is through the sacrament of baptism that one is saved from the clutches of sin and death and gets into a union with Christ. Strange as it may seem, there are many misunderstandings about the administration of baptism; and that is because not many are sure about what the Bible says aboutbaptism. This booklet addresses some frequently asked questions aboutbaptism.

Seminar paper from the year 2013 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 1,3, University of Mannheim, course: MAN 720 Research Seminar Organizational Theory, language: English, abstract: To be successful, MNEs need a deep understanding of BOP markets, which significantly differ from their Western home markets. As several academic studies have shown, one promising strategy for MNEs is to enter alliances with social organizations that are mutually beneficial for both partners. However, a comprehensive link between the main organizational challenges in BOP markets and their alleviating factors provided through social alliances is still unclear in the scholarly literature. This leads to the following research question: "What are the organizational drivers for social alliance formation from a corporate and social organization perspective within BOP markets?"The seminar thesis answers the research question in a three-step approach. In section two, the theoretical foundation describing the underlying concepts is provided. The third chapter aims to identify the main organizational constraints for each alliance partner and explains how social alliances can help to resolve them. Finally, the theoretical framework developed in section three is applied to an alliance example followed by a discussion of the findings and the conclusion

Dana Morningstar Out of the Fog. Moving from Confusion to Clarity After Narcissistic Abuse

Lying. Cheating. Manipulating. Will they ever change?What will it take to get through to them?They apologized, but will this time be different...or will they just get better at hiding what they are up to?This book will help you get out of the fog of confusion and into the clarity you are looking for.FOG is an acronym that stands for "Fear, Obligation, and Guilt." These three emotions are often at the core of manipulation, and are often how narcissists, sociopaths, and other types of emotional manipulators go about controlling their targets. However, this type of destructive manipulation isn't just limited to narcissists and sociopaths. There is no shortage of people with well-intended bad advice out there who unintentionally fall into the FOG as well, and push targets of abuse into keeping the relationship going. The FOG is one of the main reasons that people stay "stuck" in abusive relationships for so long, why they continue to get involved with abusive people, why they feel that they are the problem, and why they tend to feel that the abuse is somehow their fault. When a person is being manipulated they have a hard time figuring out who has the problem, what is normal, what is problematic, and if their wants, needs, and feelings are valid. The disasterous effects of being lost in the FOG are confusion, crazymaking, people pleasing, and an erosion of boundaries.What makes this well-intended bad advice so damaging is that, on the surface, it seems like go...

The investment period of the individual investments varied between four and 13 weeks due to an adjustment in week ten.

While companies, such as HSBC, BP and BAE Systems, are so called blue chip companies, which have a high Market Capitalisation and operations are relatively stable, other companies like Greggs or Corero Network Security are riskier.

Alternative Alternatives: Risk, Returns and Investment Strategy

In the aftermath of the financial crisis, investors are searching for new opportunities and products to safeguard their investments for the future. Riding high on the wave of new financial opportunities are Alternative Alternatives (AA). However, there is a lack of information on Alternative Alternatives: What are they? How do they work? How can investors profit from them? In Alternative Alternatives, Sona Blessing addresses all of these questions. Blessing defines Alternative Alternatives based on the following hypothesis: If the origin of the risk lies outside the financial markets, then it should be insulated from the vagaries of those markets. The recent credit and sovereign debt crises have served to defend this hypothesis and have upheld the conclusion that AA assets and strategies offer a risk-return profile that is distinct from those offered by traditional and main stream hedge fund strategies. AA strategies include timberland investing, insurance risk transfer, asset/loan based lending (aviation, shipping, trade, entertainment, litigation financing, etc.), collectables and extraction strategies such as volatility and behavioural finance. Alternative Alternatives reviews each asset/strategy on a standalone basis, profiling its characteristics, an analysis of its strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT), and its risk/reward drivers. Blessing describes how to integrate these assets and strategies within a portfolio by examining their peculiarities, the c...

U.S. Department of Justice, Gerald E. McDowell Financial Investigations Guide

Convicting and incarcerating leaders of criminal enterprises often fails to close down the illegal operation. The enterprise continues because the economic infrastructure remains intact. Destruction of the financial underpinnings of crime syndicates through asset forfeiture is essential to law enforcement success. All criminal prosecutors and investigators must master the basics of financial investigations if they are to be effective. This pamphlet is designed to acquaint prosecutors and agents with basic financial investigative techniques that should be considered in every investigation. It is not enough to ask only: "What crime?" and "What defendants?" There is a third question that must be asked at the beginning of each case: "What assets?" A careful financial investigation can lead from the street dealer to the kingpins.

Dominik Steinkühler Delayed Project Terminations in the Venture Capital Context

Venture capital plays an important role in the entrepreneurial process of providing financing and management support to young, rapidly growing companies. While venture capital investment success stories such as those of Microsoft, Apple and Google are well known, such „home runs" are rather rare. Many investments provide little or no return so that accurately evaluating the prospects of portfolio companies and terminating further engagement in unsuccessful ventures in time is key to the overall portfolio performance of venture capital firms.When venture capitalists act rationally it should be expected that investment terminations are neither systematically premature nor systematically delayed. However, recent studies have discovered a systematic tendency toward delayed project terminations of unsuccessful investments that cannot be reconciled with a model of rational decision making. The present study examines such delayed project terminations in the venture capital industry and investigates whether escalation of commitment may provide an appropriate perspective on the phenomenon and contribute to its explanation.The study develops a comprehensive theoretical framework that synthesizes and integrates several economically irrational drivers of project escalation. A large scale survey among European venture capitalists provides the basis for the empirical analysis of the hypothesized relationships. The analysis yields valuable new insights into the interaction of different ...

Diploma Thesis from the year 2008 in the subject Business economics - Banking, Stock Exchanges, Insurance, Accounting, grade: Sehr gut, University of Vienna (Universität Wien), course: Macro Economics and Finance, 74 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The literature discusses Islamic investment funds and hedge funds as isolated issues. At present not much work is known, comparing these two very prominent alternative investment forms. This thesis attempts to fill this gap by providing a first insight into both and also tries to answer the following question: Can Islamic investment funds catch up with hedge funds? For this, the thesis compares Islamic investment funds and hedge funds on the basis of different factors, trying to answer three sub questions: What are the advantages and disadvantages of each? Are there differences and/or similarities between the two? How can an investment portfolio including both be balanced?As will be seen throughout the thesis, Islamic investment funds provide a handfull of advantages over hedge funds, even enabling the former to outperform the latter.Hedge funds rely mainly on gaining advantage through market inefficiencies, hedging the market risk through short-term opportunities. This construction puts the fund manager into a high risk position with high profit potential. Despite investment restrictions under Islamic law, a fund manager is not prohibited from facilitating hedge funds by these restrictions. The main diffe...

Seminar paper from the year 2004 in the subject Business economics - Investment and Finance, grade: 10 (Skala von 0 bis 10), University of Piraeus (Department of Business Administration), course: Seminar: Fundamentals of Management, language: English, abstract: In the 20th century, global competition and entering in foreign markets are not only opportunities for companies which want to improve their business position. As an example one study indentified 136 U.S. Industries - including automobiles, accounting services, entertainment, consumer electronics, and publishing - that will have to compete on a global basis or disappear. There are different ways in which to enter in a foreign market: Exporting, licensing, franchising, entering into a joint venture with a host country company, and setting up a wholly owned subsidary in the host country. This term paper will concentrate on the last two ways, which are called direct investments, which means that the company is involved in managing the productive assets, which distinguishes it from other entry strategies that permit less managerial control.It seems to be clear that, in general, competing in foreign markets where there are significiant cross-country variations in cultural, demographic, and market conditions, poses a much bigger strategy-making challenge than just competing at home. But where exactly are the main difficulties and how to solve at least the biggest problems? It sounds funny when we hear some mistakes of big co...

Some regions see imbalances between the demand for sustainable space and the supply from the real estate market. However, some other markets balance supply and demand well. Especially in Europe, the supply of sustainable property investments is lagging behind demand and needs further attention.Nevertheless, real estate professionals in Europe are slowly becoming aware of the possibilities of this trend.

Much of current management literature focuses on a limited set of 'classical' value levers, such as cost reduction, sales optimization or mergers & acquisitions, thus neglecting another core value lever: capital investments. That capital investments receive such limited attention is all the more surprising when one considers how vitally important they are to the economy as a whole as well as individual businesses. There is significant value-creation potential in optimizing capital investments. Investments not only determine the asset structure of a venture. They also enable the introduction of new products structural cost reductions. The book focuses on core questions to be answered in the critical design and realization phase of new investments: Right positioning – does the competitive situation allow the investment to be successful Right technology – how to optimize timing and risks of technology innovations Right timing – how to cope with economic cycles Right size – how to identify the optimum size of an asset Right location – how to find the best location for an asset Right design – how to make investments lean and flexible Right financing – how to structure the investment financing The book features an introductory section that provides an overview of investments across the globe, across industries and across time provides practical advice on how to allocate capital to several projects within a company’s investment portfolio. Optimising Fixed Asset Investment is illustrated with real world examples from a range of industries. This book is essential reading for managers faced with challenges of making individual or portfolio capital investment decisions and who are responsible for managing these capital assets over their entire asset lifecycle. The ideas put forward within the book will help to sharpen the focus of management on the impact capital investments have on the well-being and growth of their companies.

The market for infrastructure is vast and, contrary to popular belief, the range of potential infrastructure investments is extremely broad. An investor who does not have a sufficient overview and insight into the infrastructure market or an awareness of the suitable investment opportunities and the risks they entail, will find it difficult to select the right investments. This book is a comprehensive guide to the subject, bringing together the topics of infrastructure investments, project finance and public private partnerships (PPPs), equipping investors with the necessary theoretical knowledge and background information as well as practical examples in order to further their understanding of the key aspects of infrastructure investments. It answers questions such as: How is infrastructure defined? Which sectors are classified as infrastructure, how are they categorised, and what are the differences between them? Is infrastructure an asset class in its own right? If so, what are its characteristics? What are the fundamental options for investing in infrastructure? What is a good starting point for institutional investors? How should infrastructure funds be evaluated? What risks do they entail and how can these risks be identified and assessed? How should they be structured in order to best allocate these risks? The book discusses the differing objectives and expectations of the parties involved and the conditions required by public principals and investors in order to enable these groups to overcome the ?language problems? they largely encounter. In addition to background knowledge and information on the latest developments in the individual subject areas, the book also explains the methodology of project finance in detail, both for traditional project finance and in the PPP context, establishing the key differences to other forms of financing, guiding readers through the various phases of project analysis on a step-by-step basis using practical examples. Well structured infrastructure investments can serve to improve the risk-return profile of an investor?s overall portfolio on account of their long term and their low level of correlation with traditional asset classes. This book will assist investors in their understanding of infrastructure investments, leading to a better informed portfolio. «A comprehensive and well-written overview of many relevant topics in the infrastructure sector; a useful guide for everyone involved or interested in the infrastructure area.» Henk Huizing, Head of Infrastructure, PGGM «A comprehensive book that effectively marries the topics of infrastructure investing, project finance and PPPs as well as bridges the gap between the theoretical and the practical – the authors are to be commended on this work.» Marc S. Lipschultz, Global Head of Energy and Infrastructure, Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. «Quite a book and one that should definitely be part of the toolkit of those who are interested in the Infrastructure asset class. Had this comprehensive work been available ten years ago, no doubt, one or two of us certainly would have done things differently. So, let's keep it closely at hand as a guide for the future that helps us deliver even better outcomes for all stakeholders and enables us to further develop the asset class.» Ron Boots, Senior Portfolio Manager – Co head Infrastructure Investments, APG All Pensions Group
