All three essays provide new evidence on how corporate investment decisions affect firm risk and how the adjustment process of riskcan be described. Overall, my research documents the importance of understanding the dynamics of risk. Researchers, investors, and bank supervisors should bear in mind that corporate investment decisions may significantly affect firm risk. The assumption that risk remains constant over time may lead to incorrect conclusions.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2008 in the subject Business economics - Miscellaneous, grade: 1,8, University of Applied Sciences Essen, 60 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: For many years the number and value of cross-border mergers and acquisitions (M&A) has increased. Although cross-border M&A seem to be a very attractive mode of entering foreign markets by having the aim to increase market power, improve efficiency through synergy, size, risk diversification or financial motivations, most M&A waste shareholders' value. This Bachelor Thesis illustrates the risk potential of M&A by analysing problems due to cultural differences in China.

In this paper recent techniques for recovering information implied by options market prices and realized returns are applied empirically to measure the risk aversion of investors in the Israeli stock market. We determine nonparametric volatility smile, densities and risk aversion functions from a ten years sample of daily option and stock market prices. Moreover, we construct a time series of the absolute risk aversion, and study its variation over time. We report decreasing and generally positive risk aversion function, which varies substantially over time and is negatively correlated with the ATM implied volatility.

Master's Thesis from the year 2012 in the subject Business economics - Miscellaneous, grade: 1.5, , course: MSc Project management, language: English, abstract: This is research has the intention to examine risk management in multi project environment with the aim of finding out how organizations do their risk implementations and if the implementation of risk processes within participant organizations has any impact on the rate of project success within a multi-project environment. As found in most literatures, project risk management has concentrated more on single standalone projects as opposed to managing project risk as portfolio where lesson learned from one project could be of benefit to another project within the same project environment.As risk management in projects has evolved over the recent decades as an integral part of project management in recent time, it has gained tremendous attention within the industrial sector because of an increased awareness about the relationship between efforts to reduce risk and project success. Within the academic community, there is the existence of gap in literatures regarding risk management in multiple project environments, and for the fact that the research that has been performed within the academic community has largely focused on the idea of risk management occurring in single project environments; the research will be aimed at how risk management is implemented within the organizations that will be examined, in order to ...

It shows potential changes in a bank's risk exposure and how these can affect a merged bank's value. It provides a theoretical consideration as well as a review of empirical studies. The result is that a merger might lead to a risk benefit. In this case, there is, c.p., potential for a value increase. Empirically, risk benefits were either absent or offset by managers' higher risk taking.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2014 in the subject Business economics - Investment and Finance, grade: 1,0, Texas A&M University (Texas A&M University-Commerce), language: English, abstract: This thesis examines optimized portfolios of three investor types during four different time intervals ranging from 1998 to 2013 to determine if the inclusion of Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities (TIPS) has benefits for institutional investors such as pension plans, university endowments, foundations and sovereign wealth funds. The three investor types used in this study differ in their risk tolerance, with the more risk-averse investor type choosing not to include certain asset classes in his investment portfolio. The efficient frontier algorithm, developed by Prof. Harry Markowitz, is used to determine whether the inclusion of TIPS improves the risk/return profile of the portfolio. Sharpe ratio, developed by Prof. William Sharpe, is used to measure a portfolio's risk adjusted performance. The study found that the benefits of the inclusion of TIPS in a portfolio vary by time period and investor type. While all investors were able to improve their risk return profile, the more risk-averse investor type benefits to a larger degree from the inclusion of TIPS. Furthermore, a significant increase in the financial efficiency was only observed in the 1998 to 2002 period. Therefore, the researcher concludes that the TIPS market is quite dynamic and investors need to take into ac...

An understanding of risk and how to deal with it is an essential part of modern economics. Whether liability litigation for pharmaceutical firms or an individual's having insufficient wealth to retire, risk is something that can be recognized, quantified, analyzed, treated--and incorporated into our decision-making processes. This book represents a concise summary of basic multiperiod decision-making under risk. Its detailed coverage of a broad range of topics is ideally suited for use in advanced undergraduate and introductory graduate courses either as a self-contained text, or the introductory chapters combined with a selection of later chapters can represent core reading in courses on macroeconomics, insurance, portfolio choice, or asset pricing. The authors start with the fundamentals of risk measurement and risk aversion. They then apply these concepts to insurance decisions and portfolio choice in a one-period model. After examining these decisions in their one-period setting, they devote most of the book to a multiperiod context, which adds the long-term perspective most risk management analyses require. Each chapter concludes with a discussion of the relevant literature and a set of problems. The book presents a thoroughly accessible introduction to risk, bridging the gap between the traditionally separate economics and finance literatures.

Master's Thesis from the year 2009 in the subject Business economics - Investment and Finance, grade: 1.0, Technical University of Munich (Department of Financial Management and Capital Markets), language: English, abstract: The last months of the financial market crisis and in particular the bankruptcy of the renowned investment bank Lehman Brothers, have taught us all that a financial institution, failing to identify and address its risks appropriately, may rapidly face problems it is not able to handle on its own. Avoiding such problems requires a rigorous risk management not only in bad times but also in times where business is going and growing well.Today, the most popular tool to measure, control and manage financial risk within corporations and financial institutions is the Value at Risk (VaR) concept. However, since the computation of the traditional Value at Risk relies solely on market prices, one often criticized downside is its disregard of market liquidity risk, which is defined as the potential loss resulting from the time-varying cost of trading. Due to the neglect of liquidity risk, the calculated VaR measures are suspected to be generally underestimated.This thesis aims at finding a method for calculating liquidity adjusted Value at Risk (lVaR) that is most accurate and at the same time implementable in practice. The first objective is to provide a comprehensive overview on existing liquidity adjusted risk measures, assess them critically and evaluate the...

Seminar paper from the year 2006 in the subject Business economics - Investment and Finance, grade: 1,3, University of Applied Sciences Essen, course: International Finance, language: English, abstract: Risk minimization and return maximization is what managers, shareholders and even private investors aspire. However, risk and return are highly correlated so that investors have to manage this trade-off. Risk management is thus essential both for investment managers and company executives. Within portfolio management and corporate practice risk can be reduced by diversification.In the "Risk Management" part Portfolio Theory - particularly Markowitz' Portfolio Selection - is to be introduced and the most common measures of risk i.e. volatility, covariance, correlation and the beta factor are to be presented.The next section refers to Mergers and Acquisitions and starts with a general intro-duction of the topic. Afterwards, M&A is to be related to diversification as a means of risk minimization. Finally, by the example of ThyssenKrupp, the theoretical assumptions of the first two parts are to be applied.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2010 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 1,0, European Business School - International University Schloß Reichartshausen Oestrich-Winkel, language: English, abstract: Ever since the equity premium puzzle (EEP) was published by Mehra and Prescott (1985), it has become one of the most investigated problems in economics (Mehra, 2003, p. 54). The EEP describes the fact that we cannot link historic stock returns with the volatility of consumption growth (in a sense to be made precise below). Mehra and Prescott call this a puzzle as their consumption-based asset pricing model can not plausibly explain the S&P 500's annual risk premium of 6.2% over relatively risk-free governmental treasury bills between 1889 and 1978. This model reproduces an equity premium of 6.2% solely by adapting unreasonable estimates of agents' risk aversion (Mehra & Prescott, 1985, pp. 155-156). In this way, the model also predicts an extreme size of the risk-free rate (Cochrane, 2000, p. 416). Thus, the equity premium is not able to be explained exclusively by the risk of stock price fluctuations. (...) This thesis will examine the EPP from a behavioral perspective. The major research question to be pursued is this: How do behavioral approaches explain the equity premium puzzle? In order to answer this question, a variety of subtasks must be addressed. This includes the investigation of the initial model of Mehra...

A risk measurement and management framework that takes model risk seriously Most financial risk models assume the future will look like the past, but effective risk management depends on identifying fundamental changes in the marketplace as they occur. Bayesian Risk Management details a more flexible approach to risk management, and provides tools to measure financial risk in a dynamic market environment. This book opens discussion about uncertainty in model parameters, model specifications, and model-driven forecasts in a way that standard statistical risk measurement does not. And unlike current machine learning-based methods, the framework presented here allows you to measure risk in a fully-Bayesian setting without losing the structure afforded by parametric risk and asset-pricing models. Recognize the assumptions embodied in classical statistics Quantify model risk along multiple dimensions without backtesting Model time series without assuming stationarity Estimate state-space time series models online with simulation methods Uncover uncertainty in workhorse risk and asset-pricing models Embed Bayesian thinking about risk within a complex organization Ignoring uncertainty in risk modeling creates an illusion of mastery and fosters erroneous decision-making. Firms who ignore the many dimensions of model risk measure too little risk, and end up taking on too much. Bayesian Risk Management provides a roadmap to better risk management through more circumspect measurement, with comprehensive treatment of model uncertainty.

VaR is nowadays widely adapted internationally to measure market risk and is the most frequently used risk measure amongst practitioners due to the fact that the concept offers several advantages. However, VaR also has its drawbacks and hence there have been and still are endeavours to improve VaR and to find better risk measures.In seeking alternative risk measures to try to overcome VaR's disadvantages, while still keeping its advantages, risk measures beyond VaR were introduced. The most important alternative risk measures such as Tail Conditional Expectation, Worst Conditional Expectation, Expected Shortfall, Conditional VaR, and Expected Tail Loss are presented in detail in the thesis. It has been found that the listed risk measures are very similar concepts of overcoming the deficiencies of VaR and that there is no clear distinction between them in the literature - 'confusion of tongues' would be an appropriate expression. Two concepts ...

2308.55 руб.
An innovative guide that identifies what distinguishes the best financial risk takers from the rest From 1987 to 1992, a small group of Wall Street quants invented an entirely new way of managing risk to maximize success: risk management for risk-takers. This is the secret that lets tiny quantitative edges create hedge fund billionaires, and defines the powerful modern global derivatives economy. The same practical techniques are still used today by risk-takers in finance as well as many other fields. Red-Blooded Risk examines this approach and offers valuable advice for the calculated risk-takers who need precise quantitative guidance that will help separate them from the rest of the pack. While most commentators say that the last financial crisis proved it's time to follow risk-minimizing techniques, they're wrong. The only way to succeed at anything is to manage true risk, which includes the chance of loss. Red-Blooded Risk presents specific, actionable strategies that will allow you to be a practical risk-taker in even the most dynamic markets. Contains a secret history of Wall Street, the parts all the other books leave out Includes an intellectually rigorous narrative addressing what it takes to really make it in any risky activity, on or off Wall Street Addresses essential issues ranging from the way you think about chance to economics, politics, finance, and life Written by Aaron Brown, one of the most calculated and successful risk takers in the world of finance, who was an active participant in the creation of modern risk management and had a front-row seat to the last meltdown Written in an engaging but rigorous style, with no equations Contains illustrations and graphic narrative by renowned manga artist Eric Kim There are people who disapprove of every risk before the fact, but never stop anyone from doing anything dangerous because they want to take credit for any success. The recent financial crisis has swelled their ranks, but in learning how to break free of these people, you'll discover how taking on the right risk can open the door to the most profitable opportunities.

A long hedge is used to reduce price risk of an anticipated purchase whereas a short hedge redu...

Master's Thesis from the year 2009 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, University of Glasgow, course: M.Sc in Management, language: English, abstract: The study illustrates the poor risk management by financial institutions which have resulted in the global financial meltdown. The reality of practical risk management is much complex involving issues from regulations to innovations. There are a number of issues which are interconnected and financial innovations have tied everything together in such a way that it has created a huge systemic risk for the whole financial system. The evaluation of the failed risk management which was practiced in reality is the focus of this dissertation. The dissertation begins with the established risk management theories and different types of risks that can be identified. The models that are critiqued in the study are widely used by present financial institutions. The issue of subprime crisis which eventually led to the global financial meltdown is something not found directly in risk management theories. Further insight is provided with two case studies. Solution to the issue is deliberately not suggested as it would be another temporary solution before the next crisis. It is risk managers and top management who has to take rational decisions and carefully analyze their investment decisions.

Does managed care reduce the costs of medical care while leaving the quality of treatment at least unchanged? What instruments should be employed to prevent risk selection? How can medical decision making be based on more rational criteria? This book consists of three major studies, each addressing a specific question related to the current debate on reforms in the health care sector. Insurers offering managed care contracts have the right to deny coverage for treatment prescribed by an insured's physician. In the US, such practices have provoked a wave of criticism against managed care. The first study shows that monitoring physicians' decisions can generally raise the efficiency of health care provision. However, insurers tend to intervene too much in medical decision making, such that consumer welfare may also decline. If premium payments do not reflect individual risk types, insurers have an incentive to practice risk selection (cream skimming). To prevent this, risk adjustment schemes have been introduced in several countries. The second study takes up the critique against conventional risk adjustment and shows that an inaccurate adjustment scheme may even have detrimental effects on social welfare. The optimal payment scheme in the model framework involves partial cost reimbursement based on the insurer's information.Watchfully waiting involves monitoring a patient's health state over time and deciding whether to undertake a medical intervention, or to c...

Based upon an examination of existing literature and an exploratory study within international organizations, an interesting outcome arose. The viewpoints from both parties, the corporate world and the research world, need to be nuanced. It is interval pressure that encourages organizational creativity the most.

Research Paper (undergraduate) from the year 2007 in the subject Business economics - Investment and Finance, grade: 1,0, University of Applied Sciences Berlin, course: Financial Management, language: English, abstract: In everything you do, or don't do, there is a chance that something will happen that you didn't count on. Risk is the potential for unexpected things to happen.Risk aversion is a common thing among almost all investors. Investors generally dislike uncertainty or risk and agree that a safe dollar is worth more than a risky one. Therefore, investors will have to be persuaded to take higher risk by the offer of higher returns. In this investment context, the additional compensation for taking on higher risk is a higher rate of return.Every investment has a risk element: The investor will always not be certainwhether the investment will be able to generate the required income. The degree of risk defers from industry to industry but also from company to company. It is not possible to eliminate the investment risk altogether but toreduce is. Nevertheless, often there remains a risky part. According to the degree of risk, the investor demands a corresponding rate of return that is, of course, higher than the rate of return of risk-free investments. Taking on a risk should be paid off.The Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) is an economic model for valuing stocks, securities, derivatives and/or assets by relating risk and expected rate of return. CAPM is based ...

We all face risks in a variety of ways, as individuals, businesses and societies. The discipline of risk assessment and risk management is growing rapidly and there is an enormous drive for the implementation of risk assessment methods and risk management in organizations. There are great expectations that these tools provide suitable frameworks for obtaining high levels of performance and balance different concerns such as safety and costs. The analysis and management of risk are not straightforward. There are many challenges. The risk discipline is young and there area a number of ideas, perspectives and conceptions of risk out there. For example many analysts and researchers consider it appropriate to base their risk management policies on the use of expected values, which basically means that potential losses are multiplied with their associated consequences. However, the rationale for such a policy is questionable. A number of such common conceptions of risk are examined in the book, related to the risk concept, risk assessments, uncertainty analyses, risk perception, the precautionary principle, risk management and decision making under uncertainty. The Author discusses these concepts, their strenghts and weaknesses, and concludes that they are often better judged as misconceptions of risk than conceptions of risk. Key Features: Discusses common conceptions of risk with supporting examples. Provides recommendations and guidance to risk analysis and risk management.

In high-stakes investing and business, success or failure largely depends on how well you play the game of risk-a game in which the rules of competition are constantly being rewritten. Strategies that proved effective in the past are no longer enough to win today. The key to success is not to rely on yesterday's news, but to peer into the future and ask what could happen tomorrow. Presenting a bold new way of thinking about risk, in Seeing Tomorrow Ron Dembo and Andrew Freeman offer a dynamic framework designed to enhance our ability to make important decisions, and consequently change how we manage our investments. By incorporating investors' individual circumstances and tolerances -as well as the unique reasoning behind their decision making-this innovative approach captures much more of how we actually think about risk. From the basic building blocks required for forward-looking risk management, Dembo and Freeman define and explore the roles and significance of such fundamentals as time horizons, risk measures, benchmarks, and scenarios. Once the foundation is laid, these elements are used to construct a solid architecture for risk management and risk-adjusted analysis that is not only general enough to be able to handle a multitude of risks, but also able to present many different measures of risk. With clear-cut explanations and intriguing real-world examples, Seeing Tomorrow leads you step by step through the authors' groundbreaking risk rules. These include: choosing an appropriate time horizon, selecting scenarios, computing Value at Risk (VAR), assessing both the upside and downside of a potential deal, calculating Regret, and compiling a reliable Regret matrix. By combining Regret, Upside, and a measure of our tolerance for risk, the authors demonstrate how these components create a powerful new way of approaching decisions. They offer guidance on very specific real life problems-such as buying a house or suing someone-as well as on broad matters of strategy and investing. Written by two leading authorities in the field, Seeing Tomorrow is a milestone addition to risk literature that will dramatically alter the way you view, identify, and manage risk. It is must reading for investors and decision makers alike. «Seeing Tomorrow is a powerhouse in the understanding of risk. With their ingenious blend of psychology and rigorous quantitative analysis, the authors have created an authoritative and innovative handbook of risk management that is essential for both practitioners and theoreticians.» -Peter L. Bernstein author, Against the Gods and Capital Ideas. «This excellent and readable book provides an innovative approach to choosing actions when the outcomes are uncertain. Anyone with an interest in improving their decision-making skills would benefit from reading this. Anyone with a professional interest in risk management must read it.» -Stephen A. Ross Fischer Black Visiting Professor of Finance Massachusetts Institute of Technology Sloan School of Management Sterling Professor of Economics and Finance, Yale University. «Ron Dembo and Andrew Freeman have done an excellent job of describing how to think about and measure risk.

The complexity of public-private partnership project procurement requires an effective process for pricing, managing and appropriate allocation of risks. The level at which risk is priced and the magnitude of risks transferred to the private sector will have a significant impact on the cost of the PPP deals as well as on the value for money analysis and on the section of the optimum investment options. The construction industry tends to concentrate on the effectiveness of risk management strategies and to some extent ignores the price of risk and its impact on whole life cost of building assets. There is a pressing need for a universal framework for the determination of fair value of risks throughout the PPP procurement processes. Risk Pricing Strategies for Public-Private Partnership Projects addresses the issues of risk pricing and demonstrates the use of a coherent strategy to arrive at a fair risk price. The focus of the book is on providing risk pricing strategies to maximise return on risk retention and allocation in the procurement of PPP projects. With its up-to-date coverage of the latest developments in risk pricing and comprehensive treatment of the methodologies involved in designing and building risk pricing strategies, the book offers a simple model for pricing risks. The book follows a thematic structure: PPP processes map; Risk, uncertainty and bias; Risk pricing management strategies; Risk pricing measurement and modelling; Risk pricing at each of the project life cycle stages – and deals with all the important risk pricing issues, using relevant real-world situations through case study examples. It explains how the theory and strategies of risk pricing can be successfully applied to real PPP projects and reflects the broad understanding required by today’s project risk analysts, in their new and important role in PPP contract management.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2013 in the subject Business economics - Trade and Distribution, grade: 1,0, Vienna University of Economics and Business (Institute for International Business), language: English, abstract: "The opportunities for channel researchers to contribute to knowledge creation in the marketing discipline and, at the same time, affect business practice are almost endless" (Frazier 1999, p.238). While the theoretical understanding of the internationalization and international marketing strategies of large firms has been in the focus of research since a long time, attention has been given only recently to investigate the same questions for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Exporters need to question their export channel structure every day in order to remain successful. Should the product be distributed directly or indirectly? Which way is more efficient, effective and/or profitable? Should export channels be changed? (John & Weitz 1988, Huan & Hsu 2003). The decision on channel integration, the extent to which the export channel is performed by the exporting firm without intermediaries, is extremely important, as it affects revenues, investments and costs (Shervani, Frazier & Challagalla 2007). As a research field, export channel structure is vital for two groups. First, there are scholars trying to find evidence for applied theories, and second, managers attempting to reduce risks and improve export performance. Wrong decisions...

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich BWL - Unternehmensführung, Management, Organisation, Note: 2,0, FOM Essen, Hochschule für Oekonomie & Management gemeinnützige GmbH, Hochschulleitung Essen früher Fachhochschule, Veranstaltung: Risk & Contract Management, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In general, risk can be expressed as product of amount of damage and probability ofdamage. Due to the fact that software controls more and more aspects of life in modernindustrialised societies, software failures inherit risks for businesses, human health oreven human life. Software testing is a structured approach to minimise product risks ofsoftware systems. When the problem arises that, due to a given budget and timeframe, itis not possible to cover all parts of the software through testing, Risk-Based Testing is apossibility to test the most critical parts of the software first or more intensive. Whenusing this method, both amount of damage and probability of damage must bequantified. Quantifying the amount of damage must happen by considering the differentviewpoints of the software system's stakeholders, while quantifying the probability ofdamage can only happen indirectly, for example through quality indicators like thecomplexity of the software itself, the quality of the documentation etc. When havingderived quantitative values both for the amount of damage and the probability ofdamage, the priority of the test cases can be determined by using a risk matrix.Furtherm...

In crop insurance it is necessary to understand how underlying risk variability arises from changes in prices, yields, or both. Typically, agricultural risks are not isolated from one another. The underlying risks are dependent in different dimensions, such as time dependence, portfolio dependence, and spatial dependence. Thus, it is important to be able to adequately model dependence with multivariate outcomes. Ignoring dependencies can lead to possibly biased and inefficient estimates of the risk. This study provides a comprehensive and in-depth economic and statistical analysis of various risk in agriculture, especially the dependence structure of agricultural risk. Using both estimation and simulation methods, we analyze the interaction of risk in the presence of time-varying dimension, portfolio dimension and spatial correlation dimension. By modeling and measuring dependence, it is possible to improve risk management instruments that take advantage of dependencies between different products. This will help improve the risk management and will help government, insurance/reinsurance companies, and policy makers to evaluate their contract design and policy making.

In high-stakes investing and business, success or failure largely depends on how well you play the game of risk-a game in which the rules of competition are constantly being rewritten. Strategies that proved effective in the past are no longer enough to win today. The key to success is not to rely on yesterday's news, but to peer into the future and ask what could happen tomorrow. Presenting a bold new way of thinking about risk, in Seeing Tomorrow Ron Dembo and Andrew Freeman offer a dynamic framework designed to enhance our ability to make important decisions, and consequently change how we manage our investments. By incorporating investors' individual circumstances and tolerances -as well as the unique reasoning behind their decision making-this innovative approach captures much more of how we actually think about risk. From the basic building blocks required for forward-looking risk management, Dembo and Freeman define and explore the roles and significance of such fundamentals as time horizons, risk measures, benchmarks, and scenarios. Once the foundation is laid, these elements are used to construct a solid architecture for risk management and risk-adjusted analysis that is not only general enough to be able to handle a multitude of risks, but also able to present many different measures of risk. With clear-cut explanations and intriguing real-world examples, Seeing Tomorrow leads you step by step through the authors' groundbreaking risk rules. These include: choosing an appropriate time horizon, selecting scenarios, computing Value at Risk (VAR), assessing both the upside and downside of a potential deal, calculating Regret, and compiling a reliable Regret matrix. By combining Regret, Upside, and a measure of our tolerance for risk, the authors demonstrate how these components create a powerful new way of approaching decisions. They offer guidance on very specific real life problems-such as buying a house or suing someone-as well as on broad matters of strategy and investing. Written by two leading authorities in the field, Seeing Tomorrow is a milestone addition to risk literature that will dramatically alter the way you view, identify, and manage risk. It is must reading for investors and decision makers alike. «Seeing Tomorrow is a powerhouse in the understanding of risk. With their ingenious blend of psychology and rigorous quantitative analysis, the authors have created an authoritative and innovative handbook of risk management that is essential for both practitioners and theoreticians.» -Peter L. Bernstein author, Against the Gods and Capital Ideas. «This excellent and readable book provides an innovative approach to choosing actions when the outcomes are uncertain. Anyone with an interest in improving their decision-making skills would benefit from reading this. Anyone with a professional interest in risk management must read it.» -Stephen A. Ross Fischer Black Visiting Professor of Finance Massachusetts Institute of Technology Sloan School of Management Sterling Professor of Economics and Finance, Yale University. «Ron Dembo and Andrew Freeman have done an excellent job of describing how to think about and measure risk. This will become required reading for businesses and personal investment executives.» -Ned C. Lautenbach.
