Eva Maria Kreibohm The Performance of Socially Responsible Investment Funds in Europe

Socially responsible investing (SRI) is an investment approach that combines investors' financial as well as nonfinancial goals in the security selection process. Technically, investors can engage in SRI either by directly investing in companies that implement corporate social activities or by investing their money in SRI funds, which apply screening criteria to select securities. The screening process applied by the SRI funds has led to controversy among academics regarding whether the use of SRI screens in the security selection process influences the financial performance of the funds.The empirical study analyzes whether or not the screening process applied by such funds influences their financial performance. Previous research mostly has focused on analyzing the performance of SRI equity funds established in the United States. The study at hand not only includes SRI equity funds, but also SRI balanced and fixed income funds established in Europe, the biggest market for SRI globally.The study provides unexpected results that are not only of interest for investors, who want to get a better understanding of the effect on the financial performance of their portfolios in case SRI funds are added. The results are also relevant for SRI fund managers, who are interested in promoting their funds and attracting (new) investors, and for academics, whose research interests are e. g., located in the fields of SRI, fund portfolio performances and market efficiencies.

Explore the inevitable collapse of the fiat monetary system Paper Money Collapse: The Folly of Elastic Money, Second Edition challenges the mainstream consensus on money and monetary policy. While it is today generally believed that the transition from 'hard' and inflexible commodity money (such as a gold standard) to entirely flexible and potentially unlimited fiat money under national central banks allows for superior economic stability, Paper Money Collapse shows that the opposite is true. Systems of highly elastic and constantly expanding money are not only unnecessary, even for growing economies, they are always extremely destabilizing. Over time, they must lead to substantial imbalances, including excessive levels of debt and distorted asset prices, that will require ever faster money production to sustain. Ultimately, however, there is no alternative to a complete liquidation of these distortions. Based on insights of many renowned economists and in particular of the Austrian School of Economics, the book explains through rigorous logic and in precise language why our system of flexible fiat money is incompatible with a market economy and therefore unsustainable. Paper money systems have always led to economic disintegration—without exception—throughout history. It will not be different for our system and we may be closer to the endgame than many think. The updated second edition incorporates: A new introduction and an extended outlook section that discusses various «endgames» Responses to criticisms, alternative views, and a critical assessment of 'solutions' Comments on recent policy trends, including attempts to exit the 'easy money' policy mode An evaluation of new crypto-currency Bitcoin Paper Money Collapse: The Folly of Elastic Money, Second Edition clarifies the problem of paper money clearly and eloquently, and proposes multiple routes to a solution.

These advisers draw elaborated graphs showing the benefits of hedge funds to an active managed portfolio. Investors have to believe in the advantages of shifting a significant part of their portfolio to hedge funds. In terms of the classical risk and return measures the advisers are right, high returns, low volatility and above all low correlations to the other asset classes in the portfolio. But as we know only the half is true. The misleading picture of volatility if measured with the classical portfolio instruments and the correlation effects is not solved in this paper. The research interest in this short paper is the distorted picture of returns given by the Hedge Funds Indices because of biases inherent to those indices.This paper gives an overview of the Hedge Funds Industry and the Hedge Funds Indices that are currently used by investors and highlights the differences between Hedge Funds and traditional Mutual Funds Indices.

Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond Instruments of the Money Market

The major purpose of financial markets is to transfer funds from lenders to borrowers. Financial market participants commonly distinguish between the "capital market" and the "money market," with the latter term generally referring to borrowing and lending for periods of a year or less. The United States money market is very efficient in that it enables large sums of money to be transferred quickly and at a low cost from one economic unit (business, government, bank, etc.) to another for relatively short periods of time. The need for a money market arises because receipts of economic units do not coincide with their expenditures. These units can hold money balances-that is, transactions balances in the form of currency, demand deposits, or NOW accounts-to insure that planned expenditures can be maintained independently of cash receipts. Holding these balances, however, involves a cost in the form of foregone interest.

Adnan Siddiqi, Peter Hrubi Islamic investments funds versus hedge Funds

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...

Karimi Mazaher, Mokhlis Hazlie Under-Frequency Load Shedding Scheme for Islanded Distribution Network

Abnormal conditions such as overload and generator tripping usually result in large excursion of power system frequency, voltage and other system variables. In this case, an effective method to prevent the electric power system from instability, frequency collapse and blackout is an under-frequency load shedding scheme. It is applied in order to maintain stability of the system, when the power system generation fails to supply the increase of load. Load shedding is a common technique to maintain the power system stability by curtailment of partial load in some part of the system. However, the load shedding techniques for an islanded distribution network should be treated differently from the transmission power system. A particular approach of under-frequency load shedding scheme is required for an islanded system which is known to be not as strong as the grid.

Dennis Sauert Hedge funds and their impact on financial stability. Implications for systemic risk and how to control for it

Master's Thesis from the year 2011 in the subject Economics - Finance, grade: 2,0, Berlin School of Economics and Law, language: English, abstract: Over the past decades the architecture of the financial system has undergone a significant change, whereby the alternative investment industry has claimed an ever increasing importance and popularity. Hedge funds have taken the leading role in this development. From a handful of hedge fund managers in the United States (U.S.), hedge funds have been growing to a worldwide business at the forefront of sophisticated financial innovation. Despite their rising success in the alternative investment industry, only a few subjects in the financial world appear to create such diverse opinions as hedge funds do. On the one hand, there are policy makers and academics, which appreciate and highlight hedge funds' main role in increasing profits and effectively diversifying risks in traditional portfolios. Moreover, Alan Greenspan, the former chairman of the Federal Reserve System (Fed), stated that hedge funds "have become major contributors to the flexibility of the financial system." Provided with flexibility and light regulatory oversight, their participation in various markets has been proven important. Especially, due to the provision of liquidity, financial markets have become more efficient but also resilient by absorbing many financial shocks in past years, including the most recent financial crisis. On the other hand, t...

This essay discussed the definition of money laundering, why money laundering is seen as problem, how the money is laundered, reasons for tackling money laundering, effects of money laundering, measures taken by international community, evolution of money laundering control, UN convention of 1988, FATF and effects of FATF on privacy and Britain's response to money laundering. The problem of money laundering arises few decades back. It is very complicated and lethal crime. It is changing its ways on daily basis. This is one of the main reasons that till now the experts couldn't give compact definition to this crime. Absence of compact definition is forcing the law enforcers to remain vigilant. For this purpose the duty of reporting the crime of money laundering is imposed on bank, financial intuitions and many other people from different independent professions. In case of failure the penalties for banks and financial institutions are very harsh. The nature of this crime has forced the countries to make very strict laws to combat money laundering crime. But these strict laws have some negative effects. The most important effect is on the privacy of people.

Khadka Subarna Bijaya Simulation of MPPT based PV system for Pumping Application

The operating point of the PV system depends upon the temperature, irradiation, wind speed, humidity and other environmental factors. To operate the photovoltaic system in a power efficient way, the designer should be well acquainted with the knowledge of photovoltaic behavior in terms of voltage, current and power. The task of an efficient PV system is to track the maximum operating point correctly so that optimum power can be received from the sun. Although the efficiency of the solar photo voltaic system is improving day by day but still optimum power has not been harnessed due to changes in temperature, irradiance and other factors that vary with places. The study has investigated the change in volume of water pumped by using maximum power point tracking mechanism and its benefits to the end user. The work is based on the maximum power transfer theory. The DC-DC converter will match the impedance of the photovoltaic module with the load by generating appropriate duty cycle that will be used to turn ON or OFF the electronic switch of the converter. Hence, this study is intended to design and simulate an efficient MPPT based PV tracking system for pumping application.

William D. Gerdes Money and Banking. An Intermediate Market-Based Approach

The premise of the book is that the study of money should commence at the most general level. Consequently, the book is anchored in the context of monetary systems (commodity, fiduciary, and fiat monies).The intent is to give the student of money a very broad perspective. It allows the reader to understand, for example, how the money we use today differs from money used in the past, or how our current money relates to money discovered by anthropologists in isolated subcultures. Money is a market phenomenon. It originated as a spontaneous social institution, and its use is still inextricably tied to market exchange. Therefore, the analysis of money occurs in a market setting. Use of monetary systems and a market setting as the underlying parameters ideally positions the reader to examine money in its various uses: as foreign exchange, in credit markets, and as an instrument of monetary policy. The material in the book is suited for upper-division college students and business professionals with an interest in reaching an understanding of money.

Carl Menger, Caroline A. Foley On the Origin of Money

On the Origins of Money is a discussion of the history of money and currency, from its crudest form as cowrie shells, animal pelts, and salt in early societies to the coin and paper money we use today. Rather than focusing on the type or shape of the money, author and economist Carl Menger looks at the reasons behind monetary exchange and why money is so valuable (or where it gets its inherent value). His argument centers on the "saleableness" of the goods or commodities being sold-in other words, the more "saleable" (or valuable or in demand) an item is, the more money it is worth. Hence, money gets its value from the objects it pays for. This short work is an insightful look into the history and value of money for any student or professional economist.CARL MENGER (1840-1921) was an Austrian economist, scholar, and author. He founded and taught at the Austrian School of Economics, where he authored several publications, mostly about the theory of marginal utility, which was directly in opposition to the then-favored cost-production theory of value, and which sparked controversy with his German colleagues. Before he retired from teaching to focus on research and study, Menger was appointed as the head of a commission to reform the Austrian monetary system. It was during this time that he wrote several well-known pieces about the purpose and origin of money and capital.

Presents the theories and applications of determining the position of an object in space through the use of satellites As the importance of space reconnaissance technology intensifies, more and more countries are investing money in building their own space reconnaissance satellites. Due to the secrecy and sensitivity of the operations, it is hard to find published papers and journals on the topic outside of military and governmental agencies. This book aims to fill the gap by presenting the various applications and basic principles of a very modern technology. The space electronic reconnaissance system in mono/multi-satellite platforms is a critical feature which can be used for detection, localization, tracking or identification of the various kinds of signal sources from radar, communication or navigation systems. Localization technology in space electronic reconnaissance uses single or multiple satellite receivers which receive signals from radar, communication and navigation emitters in the ground, ocean and space to specify the location of emitter. The methods, principles and technologies of different space electronic reconnaissance localization systems are introduced in this book, as are their performances, and the various methods are explained and analysed. Digital simulations illustrate the results. Presents the theories and applications of determining the position of an object in space through the use of satellites Introduces methods, principles and technologies of localization and tracking in the space electronic reconnaissance system, the localization algorithm and error in satellite system and near space platform system, and the tracking algorithm and error in single satellite-to-satellite tracking system Provides the fundamentals, the mathematics, the limitations, the measurements, and systems, of localization with emphasis on defence industry applications Highly relevant for Engineers working in avionics, radar, communication, navigation and electronic warfare. Chapters include:– the introduction of space electronic reconnaissance localization technology, knowledge about the satellite orbit and basic terminology of passive localization, single satellite geolocation technology based on direction finding, three-satellite geolocation technology based on time difference of arrival (TDOA), two-satellite geolocation technology based on TDOA and frequency difference of arrival (FDOA), the single satellite localization technology based on kinematics theory, localization principles of near-space platform electronic reconnaissance systems, the orbit determination of single satellite-to-satellite tracking using bearings only(BO) information, the orbit determination of single satellite-to-satellite tracking using bearings and frequency information, the orbit determination of single satellite-to-satellite tracking using frequency only(FO) information. Each chapter ends with a problem and solution section, some using Matlab code.
