Scientific Essay from the year 2008 in the subject Business economics - Investment and Finance, University of St. Gallen (Institut für Accounting, Controlling und Auditing), language: English, abstract: An economic theory which is not incorporating human behavior is not imaginable. For reasons of simplification economic models traditionally use the concept of a rational acting market participant. In order to face the inadequateness of this abstraction behavioral economic science reject the assumption of the homo economicus and adds various findings from supporting disciplines as psychology, sociology, and organizational theory. While the exploration of human behavior in finance theory has a long tradition, research in the area of psychological effects in accounting started not earlier than the mid of last century. The main intention of modern financial reporting is the supply of useful information for actual and potential investors within their decision-making process. As information processing of agentson the market for equity is part of finance theory, this is the meeting point of the two disciplines. The intention of this paper is to identify overlapping contents of behavioral research in finance and accounting. For clarification selected studies from Behavioral Finance Research (BFR) and Behavioral Accounting Research (BAR) literature will be presented and comparatively analyzed. In addition varying fields of research of both schools which are not related with each other ...

Seminar paper from the year 2003 in the subject Business economics - Investment and Finance, grade: 1,0 (A), European Business School - International University Schloß Reichartshausen Oestrich-Winkel (Department for Corporate Finance and Capital Markets), course: Seminar International Corporate Finance, 50 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The groundbreaking work of MODIGLIANI & MILLER (MM) introduced the rigors of economic analysis to financial research. This is generally considered the beginning point of modern managerial finance. Their first economic models were challenged by financial practitioners for being overly simplistic in their assumptions and, therefore, lacking real world application value. MM acknowledged and addressed this fact in their first paper. Later models relaxed some assumptions, such as symmetric information or complete contracts, while trying to retain an explanatory value in the spirit of the original MM papers.This incorporation of more realistic elements, such as strategic interaction and asymmetric information, brought several problems to financial economists' models: they required a lot of definitions, became even more complex and were not easily comparable. Game theory provided a solution for those problems in its first applications to economics in the 70s and 80s: a set of common definitions and a basic language to guarantee comparability and empirical testability of financial models using game theoretic concepts...

As a basis for this analysis, theoretical foundations in corporate finance andthe theory of the firm are provided. Furthermore, current research on the theory of thefirm and corporate finance for the recently emerged type of firm of the human-capitalintensive firm is presented.The most significant part of the analysis is the evaluation of the interrelation betweencorporate finance and the theory of the firm using a 3x3 matrix. This matrix comparesthree important theoretical frameworks of the firm (the firm as a nexus of contracts, as acollection of growth options and as a collection of assets) with three major fields ofcorporate finance (capital structure, corporate governance and valuation). Thisassessment is done for the traditional asset-intensive industrial firm, one of two basictypes of firms in today's economy. For giving an additional insight into currentresearch, the recently emerged human-capital intensive firm is shortly described incomparison to the traditional asset-intensive firm, and implications for corporate financefor this new type of firm are explained.As a conclusion, three major results can...

Diploma Thesis from the year 2003 in the subject Business economics - Investment and Finance, grade: 1,1 (A), European Business School - International University Schloß Reichartshausen Oestrich-Winkel (Endowed-Chairf for Corporate Finance and Capital Markets), language: English, abstract: The idea that the general characteristics of a firm's ownership structure can affect performance has achieved considerable attention and related research brought forward relatively consistent empirical evidence e.g. on the positive impact of managerial ownership on firm performance. However, the evidence on the relation between ownership and capital structure is less consistent and numerous, although there are good reasons to believe that there may be such a relationship.Since the capital structure irrelevance propositions of MODIGLIANI/MILLER economists have devoted considerable time to studying cross-sectional and time-series variations in capital structure. More recent work following the seminal contribution by JENSEN/MECKLING has employed an agency theory perspective in the search for an explanation of capital structure variations. With this managerial perspective capital structure is not only explained by variations in internal and external contextual factors of the firm, but also by the values, goals, preferences and desires of managers. Corporate financing decisions are influenced by managers' incentives and the incentives for managers to act opportunistically can be influence...

Master's Thesis from the year 2017 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg, language: English, abstract: The goal of this Master's thesis is to examine the relationship between managerial OR and business model innovations (BMIs) in established organizations. In order to meet the complexity of the topic, this thesis is focused on factors that hinder or help managers in recognizing business opportunities. Focusing on incumbent firms, this paper conducts further research to identify the main influencing factors, including challenges, vulnerabilities, and obstacles. The thesis is divided into six parts, starting with a brief description of the research topic, including the problem position and objective. Second, a literature review is conducted to summarize the state of research, including theoretical foundations. In today's scientific literature the two fields of research BMI & OR are by no means treated independently from each other. For the time being BMI and OR are considered independently of each other. It is then shown exactly how current literature treats managerial OR with respect to BMI. The results are then synthesized into a summary, highlighting what is known and not known. The areas of controversy in the literature are identified and questions are formulated that need further research.The third part of the thesis consists of expert interviews. Derived from the lit...

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2016 in the subject Economics - History, grade: 1,3, University of Mannheim (Fakultät der Rechtswissenschaften und VWL), language: English, abstract: Since the mid-1970s, an industry growing at considerable pace in the Islamic world is gaining market shares all over the world in countries with sufficient Muslim populations. This "Islamic Finance" industry claims to act in line with the ethical and practical principles set forth in the Qu'ran and the Shari'ah, thus appealing to Muslim and non-Muslim clients alike who search for viable alternatives to conventional financial products. As explained, the first beginnings of this phenomenon can be traced well back into the 1970s when the first "Islamic Banks" started operating in Egypt and Jordan. In the past decades, a vast amount of research has been published - empirical and theoretical - to review the impacts of Islamic Finance on the financial markets of the Islamic world. These works, to a great deal inspired by the enormous need of the industry for quantitative and qualitative research, all dealt with questions of comparative efficiency of conventional and Islamic Finance, the demand for Shari'ah-compliant financial products, the actual genuineness, or authenticity, of the industry, etc. However, only a very small portion of these research works dealt with the question whether or not the Islamic world actually needs Islamic Finance. At first, this might seem as a triv...

6637.64 руб.
With the impact of the recent financial crises, more attention must be given to new models in finance rejecting “Black-Scholes-Samuelson” assumptions leading to what is called non-Gaussian finance. With the growing importance of Solvency II, Basel II and III regulatory rules for insurance companies and banks, value at risk (VaR) – one of the most popular risk indicator techniques plays a fundamental role in defining appropriate levels of equities. The aim of this book is to show how new VaR techniques can be built more appropriately for a crisis situation. VaR methodology for non-Gaussian finance looks at the importance of VaR in standard international rules for banks and insurance companies; gives the first non-Gaussian extensions of VaR and applies several basic statistical theories to extend classical results of VaR techniques such as the NP approximation, the Cornish-Fisher approximation, extreme and a Pareto distribution. Several non-Gaussian models using Copula methodology, Lévy processes along with particular attention to models with jumps such as the Merton model are presented; as are the consideration of time homogeneous and non-homogeneous Markov and semi-Markov processes and for each of these models. Contents 1. Use of Value-at-Risk (VaR) Techniques for Solvency II, Basel II and III. 2. Classical Value-at-Risk (VaR) Methods. 3. VaR Extensions from Gaussian Finance to Non-Gaussian Finance. 4. New VaR Methods of Non-Gaussian Finance. 5. Non-Gaussian Finance: Semi-Markov Models.

A tendency exists in management theory and practice today to accept that our linear and deterministic ways of thinking about managerial problems create more problems than they solve. In the field of strategy studies, for instance, one can observe a growing interest in learning and organisational flexibility - IT gives importance to distributed cognition and adaptive systems. Management theorists are keenly observing developments surrounding complexity and chaos theory in science, and management researchers are attempting to apply emerging theories to managerial problems.Although there are still a limited number of applications in the managerial world, the Santa Fe Institute and the Los Alamos Center for Nonlinear Studies (both in the US) have been active for several years in closely related fields and, more important, adopt a multidisciplinary approach. Such applied research is seldom present in academic management journals. It seems, however, that the business community is interested in the implications of chaos and complexity for management as well as adopting a multidisciplinary approach to strategy and organisational change.This volume, constituting the proceedings of the Summer School on Managerial Complexity, held in Granada, Spain, on 11-25 July 1998, will benefit students and researchers in chaos and dynamical systems.

Seminar paper from the year 2016 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: A, Copenhagen Business School (Department of Finance), language: English, abstract: Inspired by previous research this paper investigates whether personal CEO characteristics such as age, CEO tenure, gender, MBA and variable salary (%) have a significant effect on firm bankruptcy risk measured using the Altman-Z-Score and the Ohlson-O-Score. This work is based on literature suggesting (i) CEO managerial characteristics such as overconfidence and optimism lead to higher leverage and increased risk-taking and that (ii) higher levels of debt and increased risk-taking behavior add to the likelihood of corporate financial distress. Using panel data on S&P 500 constituents during 1994-2014 our results provide evidence that CEO age and holding an MBA is positively associated with bankruptcy risk while CEO tenure and variable salary (%) seem to be negatively related to a firm's propensity to default. Collectively, our results remain mostly unchanged over various robustness tests employing both pooled OLS and the least squares dummy variable (LSDV) model as well as year, industry and company fixed effects as control variables. Next to significant support that managerial attributes, traits, and style may help to understand organizational outcomes, this project also provides insights how available public information can be used to further explain style effects b...

In the last decades many financial crises have emerged, like the stock crash of 1987, the Asian crisis in 1997 and the global financial crisis that started in 2008. Although those crises occurred for different reasons, they all proved financial markets to be inefficient. Not all traders think rationally. Behavioural patterns cause irrationality amongst traders. Even after decades of research in this field, financial crises like the latest one in 2008 still develop out of a combination of different behavioural patterns like herding. As a consequence those patterns deserve an in-depth analysis that is conducted by the author in this work.In order to find out to what extent behavioural finance influences the decision -making process of traders and investors the seven most relevant behavioural patterns have been identified and analysed through qualitative research in form of primary research. The informal interview with the sophisticated trader Thomas Vittner serves as empirical evidence for the significance of the determined behavioural patterns. To find out, whether public investors and traders showed a herding behaviour towards analysts' stock recommendations in the financial crisis and its recovery, quantitative research has been made by conducting an experiment. Stocks performances in relation to analysts' recommendations were analysed and evaluated.The author's selected behavioural patterns are influencing traders' and investors' decision-making processe...

Doctoral Thesis / Dissertation from the year 2014 in the subject Economics - Finance, grade: Succesful Defense, Mendel University (Economics), course: International Management, language: English, abstract: This work analyzes whether in recent years Islamic financial developments apply globally, for example to Germany. The author is interested in the reality of Islamic finance and its potential existence in non-Muslim environments. In much of the extant literature, studies consider a theoretical model such as: "The stability of Islamic finance". The authors in these studies tend to focus on global Islamic banks. In the present study, the Author wants to examine the situation for a specific non-Muslim country like Germany. The second focus is to find out whether there is a relationship between the number of Muslims in Germany and the need for Islamic financial products. A detailed view of market entry and critical key indicators are analysed. The current laws and their handling by Islamic banks will additionally be examined. To complete this research, a comparison with a country with more real market experiences in the field of Islamic finance, such as Turkey, will be undertaken.Are there certain Islamic, Jewish, Christian Practices and Aims for Business?With this background, starting from the year 2000, the author observed and investigated economics sources.

Can Islamic finance save the global system? Islamic Finance and the New Financial System describes how the adoption of Islamic finance principles in future regulatory decisions could help prevent future shocks in the global financial system. Using illustrations and examples to highlight key points in recent history, this book discusses the causes of financial crises, why they are becoming more frequent and increasingly severe, and how the new financial system will incorporate elements of Islamic finance – whether deliberately or not. With an introspective look at the system and an examination of the misconceptions and deficiencies in theory vs. practice, readers will learn why Islamic finance has not been as influential as it should be on the larger global system. Solutions to these crises are thoroughly detailed, and the author puts forth a compelling argument about what can be expected in the future. Despite international intervention and global policy changes, the financial system remains in a fragile state. There is an argument to be made about integrating Islamic finance into the new system to facilitate stronger resilience, and this book explains the nuts and bolts of the idea while providing the reader with a general understanding of Islamic finance. Understand the key principles of Islamic finance Examine the history of the current financial system Discover how Islamic finance can help build a new debt-free economy Learn how Islamic finance theory doesn't always dictate practice Although Islamic finance is a growing market, it is still a foreign concept to many. Those within the Islamic finance circles wonder why the system has yet to gain broader appeal despite its ability to create a strong and well-balanced economy. Islamic Finance and the New Financial System provides clever analysis and historical background to put the issues into perspective.

This research provides insights on the competitiveness of the Islamic financial industry in relation to conventional finance in the future term by investigating the development and standardization of Islamic finance risk management products and techniques. Additionally, it examines whether Shariah law impedes the innovation and standardization of these products and techniques. The investigation of the topic is carried out on the basis of a descriptive analysis of topic-related literature and internet publications. Furthermore, it is supported by analytical facts and figures from recent studies and financial reports. At the end, the research concludes that the classical Islamic scholars, and not Shariah law, impede the innovation and standardization of Shariah-compliant risk management products and techniques. Despite that issue, the Islamic financial industry with its risk management products and techniques is already competing with conventional finance in the international market as it starts at the point where conventional finance is trying to reach: zero interest rates to stimulate the economies and pure risk management products and techniques, which are not used for speculation

With recent outbreaks of multiple large-scale financial crises, amplified by interconnected risk sources, a new paradigm of fund management has emerged. This new paradigm leverages “embedded” quantitative processes and methods to provide more transparent, adaptive, reliable and easily implemented “risk assessment-based” practices. This book surveys the most widely used factor models employed within the field of financial asset pricing. Through the concrete application of evaluating risks in the hedge fund industry, the authors demonstrate that signal processing techniques are an interesting alternative to the selection of factors (both fundamentals and statistical factors) and can provide more efficient estimation procedures, based on lq regularized Kalman filtering for instance. With numerous illustrative examples from stock markets, this book meets the needs of both finance practitioners and graduate students in science, econometrics and finance. Contents Foreword, Rama Cont. 1. Factor Models and General Definition. 2. Factor Selection. 3. Least Squares Estimation (LSE) and Kalman Filtering (KF) for Factor Modeling: A Geometrical Perspective. 4. A Regularized Kalman Filter (rgKF) for Spiky Data. Appendix: Some Probability Densities.

From the world's foremost authorities on the subject, the number-one guide to Islamic finance revised and updated for a post-crisis world Because it is entirely equity-based, rather than credit-based, Islamic finance is immune to the speculative bubbles and runaway volatility typical of Western finance. Especially now, in the wake of the global financial crisis, this has made them increasingly attractive to institutional investors, asset managers and hedge funds in search of more stable alternatives to conventional financial products. With interest in Islamic finance swiftly spreading beyond the Muslim world, the need among finance and investment professionals has never been greater for timely and authoritative information about the rules governing Islamic finance. This thoroughly updated and revised second edition of the premier guide to regulatory issues in Islamic finance satisfies that need. Addresses the need for banks to develop common Islamic-based international accounting and auditing standards Clearly explains the key differences between Shari'ah rulings, standardization of acceptable banking practices, and the development of standardized financial products Explores the role of the Shari'ah Boards in establishing common rules regarding the permissibility of financial instruments and markets Offers guidance for regulators seeking to adapt their regulatory frameworks to the needs of the fast-growing Islamic finance sector

The aim of this book is to promote interaction between engineering, finance and insurance, as these three domains have many models and methods of solution in common for solving real-life problems. The authors point out the strict inter-relations that exist among the diffusion models used in engineering, finance and insurance. In each of the three fields, the basic diffusion models are presented and their strong similarities are discussed. Analytical, numerical and Monte Carlo simulation methods are explained with a view to applying them to obtain the solutions to the different problems presented in the book. Advanced topics such as nonlinear problems, Lévy processes and semi-Markov models in interactions with the diffusion models are discussed, as well as possible future interactions among engineering, finance and insurance.
