Issues in global markets l.jpg
Issues in Global Markets

  • Integration of capital markets

    • How much or how little do events in one market reflect events in other markets

    • Expected real returns across markets

  • Benefits of diversification

    • Risk reduction through correlations of returns

    • How to choose portfolio allocations

  • Risks of international investing

Recent findings l.jpg
Recent Findings

  • Importance of global effects has increased in the “new economy” of the 1990’s

  • Emerging country specific risk has increased dramatically since the crises of the 1990’s while developed-country specific risk has declined

  • Industry factors, especially technology, probably explain higher correlations

Global financial management l.jpg
Global Financial Management

  • Investment in assets

    • Find highest NPV or highest return projects on a risk-adjusted basis

    • Cash flows measured in purchasing power of owners (maximize shareholders’ wealth!)

  • Financing

    • Minimize cost of funds on a risk-adjusted basis

  • International finance: analysis of currency and political risks that are unique to foreign operations

Currency and political risk l.jpg
Currency and Political Risk

  • Currency risk is variability in cash returns due to variations in exchange rates

    • For important currencies can be hedged in financial markets

    • Often can be hedged on the balance sheet by operating and financing policies (recall American Airlines and Canada and G.E. turbine sales examples

  • Some currencies cannot be hedged: what kind of risk is currency risk (systematic, liquidity, etc.)?

International capital flows l.jpg
International Capital Flows

  • Where are highest real returns to be found in the world today?

    • Emerging market economies (educated, hard-working labor, low capital stocks)

    • The United States? (capital inflow, new economy, benign business environment)

    • Europe? (opening to East, Euro, restructuring)

    • Latin America?

Determinants of capital flows l.jpg
Determinants of Capital Flows

  • Take advantage of higher returns

    • Japanese investments in Asian neighbors

    • OPEC investments in diversified economies

  • Benefits from diversification

    • Pension funds and other institutional flows

  • Arbitrage risk-return differentials

    • Temporary differentials that are expected to go away, as from political threats that can be managed by diversification

Issues in international investing l.jpg
Issues in International Investing

  • Taxes and/or restrictions of payment of dividends or proceeds of sale

  • Currency related issues

Markets and venture capital l.jpg
Markets and Venture Capital

  • Emerging market economies in Asia have been active in developing venture capital industries

    • Most successful (like U.S.) is Taiwan

    • Others differ from U.S. experience, partially for cultural reasons

    • Organizational forms and exit possibilities

  • Second board markets in Asia have not represented a reliable exit strategy
