How Should the Financial Markets Be Structured? Securities Trading, Corporate Scandals, Laws (2004)
 
01:30:59
Following the market turbulence of the 1990s financial crises and September 11 attacks on the U.S. in 2001, financial integration intensified among the developed nations and emerging markets, with substantial growth in capital flows among banks and in the trading of financial derivatives and structured finance products. Worldwide international capital flows grew from $3 trillion to $11 trillion U.S. dollars from 2002 to 2007, primarily in the form of short-term money market instruments with maturities of less than one year. The United States experienced growth in the size and complexity of financial institutions engaged in a broad range of financial services across borders in the wake of the Gramm--Leach--Bliley Act of 1999 which repealed the Glass--Stegall Act of 1933, ending limitations on commercial banks' investment banking activity. Industrialized nations increasingly began relying on foreign capital to finance domestic investment opportunities, resulting in unprecedented capital flows to advanced economies from developing countries, as reflected by global imbalances which grew to 6% of gross world product in 2007 from 3% in 2001.[24]:129-130[18]:19 The global financial crisis that precipitated in 2007 and 2008 shared some of the key features exhibited by the wave of international financial crises in the 1990s, including accelerated capital influxes, weak regulatory frameworks, relaxed monetary policies, herd behavior during investment bubbles, collapsing asset prices, and massive deleveraging. The systemic problems originated from within the United States and other advanced nations.[24]:133-134 Similarly to the 1997 Asian crisis, the global financial crisis entailed broad lending by banks undertaking unproductive real estate investments as well as poor standards of corporate governance within financial intermediaries. Particularly in the United States, the crisis was characterized by growing securitization of non-performing assets, large fiscal deficits, and excessive financing in the housing sector.[33]:21-22[18]:18-20 While the real estate bubble in the U.S. triggered the financial crisis, the bubble was financed by foreign capital flowing from many different countries across the world. As its contageous effects began to infect other nations, the crisis became a precursor for the global economic downturn now referred to as the Great Recession. In the wake of the crisis, the total volume of world trade in goods and services fell 10% from 2008 to 2009 and did not recover until 2011, with an increased concentration in emerging market countries. The global financial crisis demonstrated the negative effects of worldwide financial integration, sparking discourse on how and whether some countries should decouple themselves from the global financial system altogether. In 2009, a newly elected government in Greece revealed that the previous government had been falsifying its national budget data, and that its fiscal deficit for the year was 12.7% of its GDP as opposed to the 3.7% espoused by the former government. This news alerted financial markets to the fact that Greece's deficit exceeded the eurozone's maximum of 3% as outlined in the Economic and Monetary Union's Stability and Growth Pact (SGP). Investors concerned by the possibility of a sovereign default began rapidly selling Greek bonds. Given Greece's prior decision to embrace the euro as its currency, it no longer held monetary policy autonomy and could not intervene to depreciate a national currency for the purposes of absorbing this shock and boosting competitiveness, as was the traditional solution to sudden capital flights. The crisis proved contagious when it spread to Portugal, Italy, and Spain (together with Greece these are collectively referred to as the PIGS. Ratings agencies downgraded these countries' government debt instruments in 2010 which further increased the costliness of refinancing or repaying their national debts. The contagion continued to spread and soon grew into a European sovereign debt crisis which threatened economic recovery in the wake of the Great Recession. In tandem with the IMF, the European Union members assembled a €750 billion bailout for Greece and other afflicted nations. Additionally, the ECB pledged to purchase bonds from troubled eurozone nations in an effort to mitigate the risk of a banking system panic. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Global_financial_system

Impact Investing: Where Are the Deals?
 
58:43
Doing well by accomplishing good is the goal of every socially conscious investor. Despite the demand for products that provide both financial and social return, the opportunities are still limited. While investment vehicles from microfinance funds to private equity and structured-debt products are proliferating, it remains difficult to access deals and even harder to track performance. The word about these investment opportunities and solid information about their impact and financial returns need to reach a much wider audience. Panelists will single out successful investment products across asset classes and sectors and suggest how to provide investors with better historical performance information and more solid outlooks. Moderator Amit Bouri, CEO, Global Impact Investing Network Speakers John Chiang, Treasurer, State of California Tony Davis, Founder, Managing Partner and CEO, Inherent Group Giles Gunesekera, CEO, Global Impact Initiative Amy O’Brien, Managing Director and Head of Responsible Investment, TIAA Global Asset Management Deval Patrick, Managing Director, Bain Capital; Former Governor, Massachusetts

Local knowledge provides us with greater chances of uncovering potential value in less well-researched companies or countries. NN IP is therefore well-placed to operate a boutique which combines this knowledge effectively and uses the organizational set-up to design well-structured Emerging Market Debt products.

https://goo.gl/QPCkqk - Start earning with binary options like millions of traders do Emerging markets are increasingly popular with investors, and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) offer an easy means of achieving global diversification.

The next largest promising group includes South Korea, Indonesia, Mexico, Turkey and Saudi Arabia. Emerging markets offer opportunities to invest in high growth potential companies.

#06 Dr. Nelson Lacey, CFA – A Deeper Look Into the CAIA Designation | The Wall Street Lab (Podcast)
 
43:41
Dr. Nelson Lacey, CFA is a professor of finance at the Isenberg School of Management at the University of Massachusetts. He earned his PhD in finance from the Pennsylvania State University and he also holds the CFA charter. Professor Lacey has been at CAIA since its inception. He has been active in working on the program’s curriculum and examination and became a Director of Exams in 2004. Professor Lacey’s academic work has led to over 50 publications in finance and economics. He is also the co-author of the book Modern Corporate Finance: Theory and Practice. The love for knowledge is really one of the main reasons why we started this project. We truly believe that education is not an end in itself, but a continuous journey. As Albert Einstein said, “Intellectual growth should commence at birth and cease only at death”. With that in mind, if you look at the financial services world, there are really dozens of exams you can take in order to learn new things and improve your career prospects. Some of them are less well known, but I bet you will be familiar with a few of them, such as the CFA, the FRM and CAIA, to name a few. For those of you who don’t know what CAIA is, it stands for Chartered Alternative Investments Analyst. And it is a financial designation that focuses specifically in Alternative Investments, such as structured products, commodities, real estate, private equity and hedge funds. We had the pleasure of interviewing the Director of Exams at the CAIA Association, Dr. Nelson Lacey. What is interesting about this interview is that it does not only cover the CAIA designation on its own. There is an obvious curiosity, especially amongst undergraduate and graduates students in the field of finance and investing, about the benefit of an Alternative Investments designation. When people ask me about CAIA, I tend to naturally gravitate towards comparing it to the CFA designation. Of course, it makes sense, as everyone in our field knows what it is. And that is exactly what Dr. Lacey did during our interview. If you are thinking about studying for the CAIA exams or are already a candidate, I really believe this conversation will help you. We cover topics such as the growth in the interest in alternative investments in emerging markets, especially in India and China, we discuss some misconceptions that people have about investing in alternatives, how the CAIA curriculum and exam questions are written, and much more. And now, the show notes: [03:00] How Dr. Lacey’s background and how he got involved with the CAIA Association [10:00] Comparison between the CFA and CAIA designations [11:00] The process of putting together exam questions [12:10] How to study for CAIA [13:15] How the CAIA Association comes up with a “passing grade” for each of their exams [17:15] The difference in the pool of candidates for CAIA vs. CFA [21:30] The growth in awareness of financial designations as a function of the development in domestic financial markets. [24:00] What are the main reasons why candidates decide to study for the CAIA designation [28:00] Dr. Lacey discusses the examination fees for the CAIA exams [31:30] A discussion of the CAIA University partnership and scholarship programs. [34:30] A discussion of the “Warren Buffett Bet” [40:10] A discussion of a common misconceptions about what alternative investments are supposed to do for a portfolio. As always, if you like what you hear, make sure to sign up to our newsletter and share the podcast with anyone you think might benefit from the information.

Andrei Shleifer | Crisis of Beliefs: A New Model of Investor Psychology
 
52:47
Subscribe to Hidden Forces here: http://www.hiddenforces.io In Episode 70 of Hidden Forces, Demetri Kofinas speaks with Andrei Shleifer, professor of economics at Harvard University. Dr. Shleifer is the most cited economist in the world according to RePEc’s database. Throughout the course of his career, Andrei Shleifer has worked in the areas of comparative corporate governance, law & finance, behavioral finance, as well as institutional economics. He has published seven books, including, A Crisis of Beliefs: Investor Psychology and Financial Fragility with his co-author Nicola Gennaioli. Demetri’s conversation with Andrei centers on the subject of beliefs: how they impact markets and how economists and financial practitioners are attempting to model them using data about people’s expectations, assumptions, and attitudes in order to make better-informed investment and policy decisions. The first half of the episode is devoted to exploring the mechanics of the 2007-2008 credit crisis, and the role played by structured products and derivatives, off-balance sheet vehicles, money market funds, GSE’s, and a policy of ultra-low interest rates that fueled over-confidence in the power of regulators and in the sustainability of the status quo. In the second half, Dr. Shleifer provides us with a more formal approach to thinking about Hyman Minsky’s instability hypothesis and how market participants can draw radically different conclusions about that same data when their beliefs about the world change dramatically. Given the destabilizing forces of populist politics, trade tensions, and changing geopolitical fault lines, the ability to draw valuable insights from data about expectations and beliefs is invaluable for any investor or policymaker looking to gain a sense of market sentiment: where it stands and where it might be going.

Alternative Investments
 
01:11:52
The world of alternative investments is becoming increasingly complex, stratified and varied as investors seek protection against market swings. What are the emerging alternatives for hard-to-value assets? Will there be a continued exit from private equity toward index products, structured credit and commodities, which might have the advantage of greater liquidity? As demand rises for offbeat assets, will returns continue to decline? How long will quantitative easing fuel growth in REITs? Will shifts in the carry trade distort alternative investment markets and returns? Should diversification be based on the subsets of the asset class or the strategies of intermediaries that manage them in hedge funds, ETFs and index funds? This panel will explore the outlook for alternative investments in a prolonged low-interest-rate environment.

A $1 trillion money manager says Japan is his favorite international investment
 
00:56
Business Insider deputy executive editor Matt Turner speaks to David Hunt, president and CEO of PGIM, who says that Japan is at the top of his firm's list in terms of international opportunities. He notes that there are large institutional investors there looking to put money into high-yielding assets elsewhere in the world. He calls it a "search for yield 2.0," which is something we haven't seen in quite some time from the Japanese. Following is a transcript of the video. Matt Turner: Going back a step, you mentioned Bank of Japan, or the Japanese market, and Europe. Outside of the US, where do you see opportunity? You mentioned India as well. David Hunt: There's no question we would certainly have Japan at the top of our list. We do believe that there are large institutional investors there who are looking very actively to put their money to work outside of Japan and to move into higher-yielding assets. I would've said that their search for yield 1.0 was to move into the US and to move to kind of investment grade corporates. We're now really seeing a search for yield 2.0, which has to do with high-yield, emerging markets, and structured products, which as you know, we hadn't seen for quite some time from the Japanese. So, I think we do believe that there is a lot more yet to run on the movement of money out of Japan. -------------------------------------------------- Follow BI Video on Twitter: http://bit.ly/1oS68Zs Follow BI on Facebook: http://bit.ly/1W9Lk0n Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/ -------------------------------------------------- Business Insider is the fastest growing business news site in the US.

What is CREDIT-LINKED NOTE? What does CREDIT-LINKED NOTE mean? CREDIT-LINKED NOTE meaning
 
04:56
What is CREDIT-LINKED NOTE? What does CREDIT-LINKED NOTE mean? CREDIT-LINKED NOTE meaning - CREDIT-LINKED NOTE definition - CREDIT-LINKED NOTE explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. A credit linked note (CLN) is a form of funded credit derivative. It is structured as a security with an embedded credit default swap allowing the issuer to transfer a specific credit risk to credit investors. The issuer is not obligated to repay the debt if a specified event occurs. This eliminates a third-party insurance provider. It is a structured note issued by a special purpose company or trust, designed to offer investors par value at maturity unless the referenced entity defaults. In the case of default, the investors receive a recovery rate. The trust will also have entered into a default swap with a dealer. In case of default, the trust will pay the dealer par minus the recovery rate, in exchange for an annual fee which is passed on to the investors in the form of a higher yield on their note. The purpose of the arrangement is to pass the risk of specific default onto investors willing to bear that risk in return for the higher yield it makes available. The CLNs themselves are typically backed by very highly rated collateral, such as U.S. Treasury securities. The Italian dairy products giant, Parmalat, notoriously dressed up its books by creating a credit-linked note for itself, betting on its own credit worthiness. In Hong Kong and Singapore, credit-linked notes have been marketed as "minibonds" and sold to individual investors. After Lehman Brothers, the major issuer of minibond in Hong Kong and Singapore, filed for bankruptcy in September 2008, many retail investors of minibonds claim that banks and brokers mis-sold minibonds as low-risk products. Many banks accepted minibonds as collateral for loans and credit facilities. A bank lends money to a company, XYZ, and at the time of loan issues credit-linked notes bought by investors. The interest rate on the notes is determined by the credit risk of the company XYZ. The funds the bank raises by issuing notes to investors are invested in bonds with low probability of default. If company XYZ is solvent, the bank is obligated to pay the notes in full. If company XYZ goes bankrupt, the note-holders/investors become the creditor of the company XYZ and receive the company XYZ loan. The bank in turn gets compensated by the returns on less-risky bond investments funded by issuing credit linked notes. The emerging market credit linked note, also sometimes called a “clean,” are traded by buy side clients to gain access to local debt markets for several reasons. First is that a direct investment in the sovereign debt may not be legal due to domicile restrictions of the country. One instance would be the local government requiring the purchaser of debt to have a business office in the country. Another instance would be tax restrictions or tariffs in countries with NDF currencies. A fund in USD would have difficulty repatriating the currency if local restrictions or taxes made it undesirable. When this occurs, the sell side global bank purchases the debt and structures it into a derivative note then issued to the client or clients. The client then owns the issued security which derives its total return from the underlying instrument. A CDS, credit default swap, is embedded in the instrument. It can be thought of as a fully funded total return swap where the underlying asset total return is exchanged for a funding fee as well as the cost of the issued CLN. From a market risk perspective owning a CLN is almost identical to owning the local debt. However downstream, in the back office, difficulties can arise from failure to appropriately control the risks associated from the lack of data and compatibility of accounting platforms. The issue stems from the bespoke nature of the CLN in that it is priced in USD but the underlying asset is denominated in another currency. Secondly, the sell side may price the CLN based on the issued asset in USD. This in turn does not appropriately reflect the Yield to Maturity of the underlying asset as it approaches par value at maturity. Thirdly, the underlying asset may be inflation linked, or have periodic paydowns that compound the first and third issues mentioned before.

MITUL KOTECHA OF CREDIT AGRICOLE GIVES HIS END-2014 TARGET FOR THE YUAN, AND EXPLAINS HOW THE CURRENCY'S MOVEMENTS HAVE AN EFFECT ON OTHER EMERGING MARKETS CURRENCIES. SHOWS: HONG KONG, CHINA (FEBURARY 26, 2014) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) MITUL KOTECHA, HEAD OF GLOBAL MARKETS RESEARCH FOR ASIA AND GLOBAL HEAD OF FX STRATEGY, CREDIT AGRICOLE 1. (QUESTION GRAPHIC) "What are your thoughts on the yuan's dramatic falls over the last few days?" 2. MITUL KOTECHA SAYING: "Well, there are a number of factors here. Firstly, Chinese authorities were most likely being concerned about the rapid inflow of capital that was coming into the yuan and really playing for further appreciation of the currency. And actually, what we saw at the beginning of the year was a lot of structured products for instance being put on, playing for appreciation of the CNY through the CNH. At the same time, China, I guess there are concerns about economic growth domestically. I think there are concerns that the pace of appreciation might have seemed to be too rapid. And you know what China wants to instill here is two-way risk, they want it to be a two-way market, they don't want to be seen as a one-way currency here. And secondly, more volatility. There needs to be some volatility in the currency from a point of the view that it becomes more tradable and a two-way risk currency. And partly, as well, it could be a precursor to a band widening. And this, in a sense, if you have a band widening you do anyway want to have a bit of two-way risk because otherwise the currency would just go to the stronger end of the band." 3. (QUESTION GRAPHIC) "With the yuan trading band widening, how will that impact emerging markets as a whole?" 4. MITUL KOTECHA SAYING: "I don't think the band widening itself will. In fact, this has been anticipated for a long time, the question has always been timing and perhaps they are surprised they haven't done it until now. So it could happen very soon. Perhaps the bigger concern for emerging markets is whether this depreciation of the yuan, of the RMB, really perhaps reflects some greater worries about the Chinese economy that we don't really know...

Evaluating the sales team can reveal the biggest strengths or weaknesses of the sales process. Next, we evaluate the buyer as an aspect of the product strategy. In order to increase revenue growth, it is important to discover how, when and why your buyer buys, and shift your product strategy off the seller and to the buyer. A vital part of this process includes integrating new processes with your trainings, in order to properly equip your team to sell. Finally, we examine how to move into year two of your transformation and to continue to increase revenue by building upon your achievements from the first year. We also examine the most important steps to remember when developing a plan to increase revenue growth, and pitfalls to avoid. Ready to Make Your Number?

Scientists discover a way to record dreams. But people with ulterior motives exploit those with the most powerful dreams. ➤ SUBSCRIBE: http://sub2.omele.to Kept is used with permission from Jaime Gonzalez and Imaginaria Cine. Learn more at http://omele.to/2Rzfj5K and http://omele.to/2ChI2lZ. Scientists now have the ability to record dreams, and the technology has trickled down into the realm of the street, where a small, possibly black, market has opened up for the most vivid, striking imaginings. Matias in particular has access to a little girl who has emerged as a commodity for her dream abilities. But he may be trouble, as Vicente, a man associated with a law firm, comes to interrogate him about whether any laws or conventions have been violated in her recordings. But as everyone's real motives are revealed, the true stakes also emerge, putting the young girl in a uniquely terrifying peril. Writer-director Jaime Gonzalez's short sci-fi thriller on the surface explores a long-running preoccupation in the genre: the ability to record consciousness. In this case, it's the fascinating idea that the unconscious can be watched and recorded. In this short, this creates a market for artistic experiences and stories that bear little "interference" from a conscious creator or artist, and art is less about the conscious cultivating of talent and more about discovering "buried treasure." The script and story explores this idea in a philosophical way, rather than through any fantastical CGI sequences or big action scenes. The story -- brought to life with dynamic, moody camerawork and engaging performances -- is essentially structured about the interrogation scene. As Vicente struggles to understand why this little girl is so special, and why anyone wants to experience another person's dreams in the first place, the audience learns and thinks right along with him. The dialogue certainly dances through interesting, provocative ideas about this new technology, but the narrative is less about the premise at hand, and more about how new technology often opens up the darker impulses in people, particularly those who want to exploit an emerging market or product. The true darkness here is not the nightmares that people like to consume for popular entertainment, but the greed within humankind, which exploits the weak and vulnerable and reduces them to a commodity. "Kept" is a remarkably tense watch, especially considering that it's essentially an interrogation scene, a scene of chess where only one person really knows the game being played. Instead of leaning on big action, the drama and surprise lies in the unveiling of motives and revelation of agendas -- and the tragedy is how there is always human collateral, no matter what era or age we find ourselves in.
