Release Date: 2007

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2004 im Fachbereich BWL - Bank, Borse, Versicherung, Note: 1 A, Alpen-Adria-Universitat Klagenfurt, 11 Literaturquellen, 1 Internetquelle Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die klassische Portfoliotheorie hat die Beziehung zwischen Risiko und Rendite in das Zentrum der Betrachtung geruckt. Dem Marktportfolio kommt dabei besondere Bedeutung zu. Das Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) besagt, dass die erwartete Rendite der Einzelanlagen linear vom Beta ( ) abhangt. Das CAPM ist zunachst ein rein logisch und mathematisch abgeleitetes Ergebnis, das, wenn es aus den Pramissen korrekt abgeleitet wurde, richtig ist. Die Problemstellung bezuglich des CAPM ist jedoch, dessen empirischer Gehalt. Kann es die wirklichen Finanzmarkte gut beurteilen? Zu Beginn dieser Arbeit kommt es zu einer Begriffserklarung der haufig verwendeten Begriffe Rendite und Risiko und die Darstellung des Risk-Return-Diagrammes der ATX-Werte. Danach wird mit Hilfe zweier effizienter Portfolios basierend auf der Varianz-Kovarianz-Matrix die Effizienzkurve dieser ATX-Werte dargestellt. In der Folge wird im Kapitel 3 die Kapitalmarktlinie ermittelt, worauf das Marktportfolio folgt. Den grossten Teil dieser Arbeit umfasst das CAPM. Im Kapitel 4 und 5 wird darauf genau eingegangen. In diesem Kapitel wird das Augenmerk auf eine Ubersicht zum CAPM, die Wertpapierlinie und ATX-Werte, die Modellkritik bezuglich CAPM und die empirischen Ergebnisse des CAPM gelegt

Financial Modeling Actuarial Valuation and Solvency in Insurance

Author: Mario V. Wüthrich
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9783642313929
Release Date: 2013-04-04
Genre: Mathematics

Risk management for financial institutions is one of the key topics the financial industry has to deal with. The present volume is a mathematically rigorous text on solvency modeling. Currently, there are many new developments in this area in the financial and insurance industry (Basel III and Solvency II), but none of these developments provides a fully consistent and comprehensive framework for the analysis of solvency questions. Merz and Wüthrich combine ideas from financial mathematics (no-arbitrage theory, equivalent martingale measure), actuarial sciences (insurance claims modeling, cash flow valuation) and economic theory (risk aversion, probability distortion) to provide a fully consistent framework. Within this framework they then study solvency questions in incomplete markets, analyze hedging risks, and study asset-and-liability management questions, as well as issues like the limited liability options, dividend to shareholder questions, the role of re-insurance, etc. This work embeds the solvency discussion (and long-term liabilities) into a scientific framework and is intended for researchers as well as practitioners in the financial and actuarial industry, especially those in charge of internal risk management systems. Readers should have a good background in probability theory and statistics, and should be familiar with popular distributions, stochastic processes, martingales, etc.

Genre: Business & Economics

Financial Modeling for Business Owners and Entrepreneurs: Developing Excel Models to Raise Capital, Increase Cash Flow, Improve Operations, Plan Projects, and Make Decisions may be one of the most important books any entrepreneur or manager in a small or medium-sized enterprise will read. It combines logical business principles and strategies with a step-by-step methodology for planning and modeling a company and solving specific business problems. You’ll learn to create operational and financial models in Excel that describe the workings of your company in quantitative terms and that make it far more likely you will avoid the traps and dead ends many businesses fall into. Serial entrepreneur and financial expert Tom Y. Sawyer shows how to break your company down into basic functional and operational components that can be modeled. The result is a financial model that, for example, you can literally take to the bank or bring to local angel investors to receive the funding you need to launch your business or a new product. Or it might be a model that shows with startling clarity that your new product development effort is a likely winner—or loser. Even better, you’ll learn to create models that will serve as guideposts for ongoing operations. You’ll always know just where you are financially, and where you need to be. The models you will learn to build in Financial Modeling for Business Owners and Entrepreneurs can be used to: Raise capital for startup or any stage of growth Plan projects and new initiatives Make astute business decisions, including go/no-go assessments Analyze ROI on your product development and marketing expenditures Streamline operations, manage budgets, improve efficiency, and reduce costs Value the business when it is time to cash out or merge In addition to many valuable exercises and tips for using Excel to model your business, this book contains a combination of practical advice born of hard-won lessons, advanced strategic thought, and the insightful use of hard skills. With a basic knowledge of Excel assumed, it will help you learn to think like an experienced business person who expects to make money on the products or services offered to the public. You’ll discover that the financial model is a key management tool that, if built correctly, provides invaluable assistance every step of the entrepreneurial journey. Tom Y. Sawyer has used the principles this book contains to create financial models of numerous startup and early-stage companies, assisting them in planning for and raising the capital that they needed to grow their businesses and ultimately exit with multiples of their initial investment. Financial Modeling for Business Owners and Entrepreneurs, a mini-MBA in entrepreneurship and finance, will show you how you can do the same. Note: This book is an updated version of Sawyer's 2009 title, Pro Excel Financial Modeling.

The ability to create and understand financial models that assess the valuation of a company, the projects it undertakes, and its future earnings/profit projections is one of the most valued skills in corporate finance.

The Oxford Guide to Financial Modeling

Author: Thomas S. Y. Ho
Publisher: Oxford University Press
ISBN: 0199727708
Release Date: 2004-01-15
Genre: Business & Economics

The essential premise of this book is that theory and practice are equally important in describing financial modeling. In it the authors try to strike a balance in their discussions between theories that provide foundations for financial models and the institutional details that provide the context for applications of the models. The book presents the financial models of stock and bond options, exotic options, investment grade and high-yield bonds, convertible bonds, mortgage-backed securities, liabilities of financial institutions--the business model and the corporate model. It also describes the applications of the models to corporate finance. Furthermore, it relates the models to financial statements, risk management for an enterprise, and asset/liability management with illiquid instruments. The financial models are progressively presented from option pricing in the securities markets to firm valuation in corporate finance, following a format to emphasize the three aspects of a model: the set of assumptions, the model specification, and the model applications. Generally, financial modeling books segment the world of finance as "investments," "financial institutions," "corporate finance," and "securities analysis," and in so doing they rarely emphasize the relationships between the subjects. This unique book successfully ties the thought processes and applications of the financial models together and describes them as one process that provides business solutions. Created as a companion website to the book readers can visit to gain deeper understanding of the book's financial models. Interested readers can build and test the models described in the book using Excel, and they can submit their models to the site. Readers can also use the site's forum to discuss the models and can browse server based models to gain insights into the applications of the models. For those using the book in meetings or class settings the site provides Power Point descriptions of the chapters. Students can use available question banks on the chapters for studying.
