The Emergence of ETFs in Asia-Pacific
97,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book is dedicated to examining Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) market in the Asia-Pacific region between 2004 and 2017. It offers a broad examination of the attributes and development of the ETF markets. The book presents a new approach to ETF markets modeling that uses innovation diffusion model. In addition, it explores the empirical links between ETFs and Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs). The book also compares ETFs and competing investment options. This book should appeal to both academics and practitioners as it includes detailed descriptions of the ETF markets and prepared projections regarding their future development. As the Asia-Pacific region plays a significant role in the global economy, this book should be useful for international readers beyond this area.The Emergence of ETFs in Asia-Pacific begins with an overview of the Asia-Pacific economies, focusing on their importance for the global economy and their features. Next, the book introduces an analytical framework. It explains major features of ETFs (such as their creation, distribution, and trading) and key categories, which facilitates profound understanding of the book merit even for readers with little knowledge about ETFs. The following chapter explores the role of ICTs in economy and society identifying channels of their impact on financial markets. It discusses how ICTs foster dynamic spread of financial innovations (including ETFs) across financial markets. Next, the book examines the ETF market's development in different countries in the Asia-Pacific region, by analyzing their level of development in terms of turnover. In this part it also provides brief characteristics of all markets, including their structures and categories of ETFs in various countries. Consecutive part of the book is dedicated to reports on the process of ICTs growing penetration across Asia-Pacific countries, showing the changes observed during recent years. It then continues the empirical analysis of the ETF markets in the Asia-Pacific region by attempting to trace the links between the development of ETF markets and ICT penetration during the period 2004-2017. As complementary material, a methodological annex is included showing major analytical techniques used throughout the research.

Diploma Thesis from the year 2008 in the subject Environmental Sciences, grade: 1, University of Applied Sciences Burgenland (Nachhaltige Energiesysteme), language: English, abstract: Climate Change is real, and the impacts on ecology, economy and human lifestyle are expected to be tremendous.In order to effectively but also cost efficiently combat climate change, market based instruments are being used in environmental policy. Certificate schemes have been and are being created for trading of greenhouse gas reductions (Grey Certificates), renewable energy (Green Certificates) and energy efficiency (White Certificates).So far, Europe is the frontrunner in implementing especially Greenhouse Gas emission trading schemes. However, as climate change is a global problem, similar markets should be established all over the world and ideally be linked in order to achieve economic optimal solutions.This thesis describes characteristics of the different instruments and trading schemes (Grey, Green and White Certificates) and identifies major design parameters of the systems with the focus on compatibility and potential for establishing links between schemes of the same type or among the certificate types. Implications of establishing links, which can be planned and wanted but also conflicting with other goals, are discussed. As greenhouse gas emissions trading schemes are the most developed and experienced trading schemes in climate change policy, the focus of this work lies on the analysis of the different Greenhouse Gas emission trading schemes (ETS). For the compatibility analysis of ETS, the EU ETS is chosen as reference system.An outlook for near-term linking options and a summary conclude the analysis based on the findings of the work.As more and more environmental policies and instruments emerge around the world due to rising awareness for the problem of climate change, this thesis gives an overview but can not cover all different certificate systems in place and planned.

Trading the Fixed Income, Inflation and Credit ...
108,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Trading the Fixed Income, Inflation and Credit Markets is a comprehensive guide to the most popular strategies that are used in the wholesale financial markets, answering the question: what is the optimal way to express a view on expected market movements? This relatively unique approach to relative value highlights the pricing links between the different products and how these relationships can be used as the basis for a number of trading strategies. The book begins by looking at the main derivative products and their pricing interrelationships. It shows that within any asset class there are mathematical relationships that tie together four key building blocks: cash products, forwards/futures, swaps and options. The nature of these interrelationships means that there may be a variety of different ways in which a particular strategy can be expressed. It then moves on to relative value within a fixed income context and looks at strategies that build on the pricing relationships between products as well as those that focus on how to identify the optimal way to express a view on the movement of the yield curve. It concludes by taking the main themes of relative value and showing how they can be applied within other asset classes. Although the main focus is fixed income the book does cover multiple asset classes including credit and inflation. Written from a practitioner's perspective, the book illustrates how the products are used by including many worked examples and a number of screenshots to ensure that the content is as practical and applied as possible.

Reflecting the fast pace and ever-evolving nature of the financial industry, the Handbook of High-Frequency Trading and Modeling in Finance details how high-frequency analysis presents new systematic approaches to implementing quantitative activities with high-frequency financial data. Introducing new and established mathematical foundations necessary to analyze realistic market models and scenarios, the handbook begins with a presentation of the dynamics and complexity of futures and derivatives markets as well as a portfolio optimization problem using quantum computers. Subsequently, the handbook addresses estimating complex model parameters using high-frequency data. Finally, the handbook focuses on the links between models used in financial markets and models used in other research areas such as geophysics, fossil records, and earthquake studies. The Handbook of High-Frequency Trading and Modeling in Finance also features: * Contributions by well-known experts within the academic, industrial, and regulatory fields * A well-structured outline on the various data analysis methodologies used to identify new trading opportunities * Newly emerging quantitative tools that address growing concerns relating to high-frequency data such as stochastic volatility and volatility tracking; stochastic jump processes for limit-order books and broader market indicators; and options markets * Practical applications using real-world data to help readers better understand the presented material The Handbook of High-Frequency Trading and Modeling in Finance is an excellent reference for professionals in the fields of business, applied statistics, econometrics, and financial engineering.
