Kapitalstruktur, Liquiditätshaltung und Ausschüttungspolitik börsennotierter Firmen sind seit vielen Jahrzehnten Untersuchungsgegenstand empirischer Forschungsarbeiten. Die vorliegende Arbeit geht der Frage nach, ob sich Zusammenhänge zwischen Strategie und Finanzmanagement sowie Eigentümerstruktur und Finanzmanagement für die im HDAX gelisteten Blue Chips belegen lassen. Der Einfluss der Strategie auf die drei Finanzmanagement-Kenngrößen Verschuldungsgrad, Liquiditätshaltung und Ausschüttungsquote wird anhand konkreter Ansätze der Literatur zum strategischen Management untersucht. Die vorliegende Arbeit analysiert dabei den Zusammenhang zwischen Diversifikations-, Innovations- und Wachstumsstrategie und dem Finanzmanagement erstmals für ein Sample deutscher Unternehmen. Zur Untersuchung des Einflusses der Eigentümerstruktur werden drei konkrete Eigentümergruppen näher betrachtet, die sich aufgrund spezifischer Interessen und Motive deutlich von anderen Aktionären unterscheiden. Treten das Management (z. B. Gründerteams) oder Familien (insbesondere Nachfahren der Gründer) als Großaktionäre auf, so werden diese beiden Gruppen gemeinhin mit einer emotionalen Bindung zum Unternehmen und einem langfristigen Investmenthorizont assoziiert. Private-Equity-Beteiligungsgesellschaften verfolgen dagegen in erster Linie ambitionierte Renditeziele und könnten das Finanzmanagement als Werthebel einsetzen. Bei der Untersuchung der Unternehmen, die zwischen 1994 und 2008 im HDAX geführt wurden (194 Firmen, 1.967 Firmenjahre), bedient sich die Arbeit aktueller ökonometrischer Methoden und berücksichtigt die klassischen Determinanten des Finanzmanagements aus der Corporate-Finance-Literatur. Die Regressionsanalyse ergibt, dass insbesondere eine Innovationsstrategie und eine umfangreiche M&A-Aktivität mit deutlichen Implikationen für das Finanzmanagement verbunden sind. Familienunternehmen weisen einen hohen Verschuldungsgrad auf, der als Ausdruck eines starken Kontrollbedürfnisses der Eigentümer interpretiert wird. Eine hohe Managementbeteiligung zeigt zwar keinen direkten Einfluss auf das Finanzmanagement, jedoch treten bei Interaktion von Managementbeteiligung und Unternehmensstrategie signifikante Zusammenhänge zutage. Diese deuten auf eine hohe Risikoaversion der Eigentümergruppe bei undiversifizierten Unternehmen als auch auf ein ausgeprägtes Kontrollbedürfnis bei starkem Wachstum. Blue Chips unter Private-Equity-Einfluss zeigen dagegen keine Anzeichen, dass ihr Finanzmanagement regelmäßig als Werthebel fungiert.

Written by a former practitioner, this book fills a clear gap in the current literature for a practice-focused text that brings together the organizational structure, economics and governance of the finance industry – investment banking, wholesale banking and asset management - with the functions it performs such as mergers and acquisitions, IPOs, private equity, hedge funds, high frequency trading and the structuring of cash and synthetic ETFs and CDOs. It integrates the credit and capital markets by considering securitization as a "conversion" process between the two markets and money market mutual funds as a capital market alternative to bank deposits offered in the credit market. It analyzes the societal value of the industry as well as market and regulatory failure leading to crisis and hence the need for more appropriate governance structures and disciplining and control mechanisms for both banks and sovereign groupings such as the eurozone.

In a global economy, multinational companies often operate in jurisdictions where governments are either unable or unwilling to uphold even the basic human rights of their citizens. The expectation that companies respect human rights in their own operations and in their business relationships is now a business reality that corporations need to respond to. Business and Human Rights: From Principles to Practice is the first comprehensive and interdisciplinary textbook that addresses these issues. It examines the regulatory framework that grounds the business and human rights debate and highlights the business and legal challenges faced by companies and stakeholders in improving respect for human rights, exploring such topics as: the regulatory framework that grounds the business and human rights debate challenges faced by companies and stakeholders in improving human rights industry-specific human rights standards current mechanisms to hold corporations to account future challenges for business and human rights With supporting case studies throughout, this text provides an overview of current themes in the field and guidance on practical implementation, demonstrating that a thorough understanding of the human rights challenges faced by business is now vital in any business context.

Principles of Financial Engineering, Third Edition, is a highly acclaimed text on the fast-paced and complex subject of financial engineering. This updated edition describes the "engineering" elements of financial engineering instead of the mathematics underlying it. It shows how to use financial tools to accomplish a goal rather than describing the tools themselves. It lays emphasis on the engineering aspects of derivatives (how to create them) rather than their pricing (how they act) in relation to other instruments, the financial markets, and financial market practices. This volume explains ways to create financial tools and how the tools work together to achieve specific goals. Applications are illustrated using real-world examples. It presents three new chapters on financial engineering in topics ranging from commodity markets to financial engineering applications in hedge fund strategies, correlation swaps, structural models of default, capital structure arbitrage, contingent convertibles, and how to incorporate counterparty risk into derivatives pricing. Poised midway between intuition, actual events, and financial mathematics, this book can be used to solve problems in risk management, taxation, regulation, and above all, pricing. A solutions manual enhances the text by presenting additional cases and solutions to exercises. This latest edition of Principles of Financial Engineering is ideal for financial engineers, quantitative analysts in banks and investment houses, and other financial industry professionals. It is also highly recommended to graduate students in financial engineering and financial mathematics programs. The Third Edition presents three new chapters on financial engineering in commodity markets, financial engineering applications in hedge fund strategies, correlation swaps, structural models of default, capital structure arbitrage, contingent convertibles and how to incorporate counterparty risk into derivatives pricing, among other topics. Additions, clarifications, and illustrations throughout the volume show these instruments at work instead of explaining how they should act The solutions manual enhances the text by presenting additional cases and solutions to exercises

Modern Banking focuses on the theory and practice of banking, and its prospects in the new millennium. The book is written for courses in banking and finance at Masters/MBA level, or undergraduate degrees specialising in this area. Bank practitioners wishing to deepen and broaden their understanding of banking issues may also be attracted to this book. While they often have exceptional and detailed knowledge of the areas they have worked in, busy bankers may be all too unaware of the key broader issues. Consider the fundamental questions: What is unique about a bank? and What differentiates it from other financial institutions? Answering these questions begins to show how banks should evolve and adapt - or fail. If bankers know the underlying reasons for why profitable banks exist, it will help them to devise strategies for sustained growth. Modern Banking concludes with a set of case studies that give practical insight into the key issues covered in the book: The core banking functions Different types of banks and diversification of bank activities Risk management: issues and techniques Global regulation: Basel 1 and Basel 2. Bank regulation in the UK, US, EU, and Japan Banking in emerging markets Bank failure and financial crises Competitive issues, from cost efficiency to mergers and acquisitions Case Studies including: Goldman Sachs, Bankers Trust/Deutsche Bank, Sumitomo Mitsui, Bancomer
