Описание: Public sector managers are constantly confronted by financial documents such as budgets, balance sheets and cash flow statements, yet most do not have a financial background. By approaching the subject from the point of view of how managers use the information, this book enables those studying or training to become public sector managers to get a better understanding of financial documents and communicate effectively with the financial people in their organization. A basic understanding of the principles and rules is instilled, in a concise way, and illustrations are used to encourage an appreciation for the value of financial information for decision making.
Описание: Modern accounting systems are defined financial because the transfers of goods and services among institutions generate money inflows or outflows that are an objective measure of the economic value both for the seller and the purchaser. This book offers a fairly broad perspective of the financial management issue in the public sector.

Описание: The book sheds new light on the relation between equity ownership and corporate performance. Empirical studies presented in this book are based on a large panel data set and model the impact of concentrated ownership on performance, with nonlinear effect shapes being estimated through cubic splines. The final model incorporates the identity of owners into the investigation and illustrates the differing performance effects of various large shareholders. This approach adds to the understanding of ownership effects as previous research was mainly concerned with the role of ownership concentration and neglected the identity of blockholders as an equally important dimension of ownership. The new perspective will give fresh impetus to researchers, corporate decision makers and public policy.

Описание: Global financial crisis and colossal sovereign debt has resulted in the need for radical cuts in public expenditure in many countries. Against this background, the contributions in Third Sector Performance acknowledge that, as a result, more imaginative ways of delivering public services are being sought. In countries like the UK, the new concept of The Big Society envisages third sector, or not-for-profit, or charitable organizations and social enterprises stepping in to mitigate the loss of vital public services. This development also gives rise to the likelihood that third sector financial institutions such as credit unions and a possible 'Big Society Bank' will grow in importance. The performance of all these enterprises looks set to become a much more critical issue than it has been in the past. The editors have gathered in this volume, chapters reflecting the fact that third sector organizations are not the same as conventional businesses and are also subtly different from the public sector. There is currently a dearth of knowledge and a lack of research into issues around performance in the Third Sector or Civil Society. This book begins to fill a void in the knowledge base. The internationally sourced contributions represent a balanced offering of academic research findings and practitioner accounts from the Third Sector, together with a section devoted specifically to third sector finance institutions. This book will appeal, internationally, to policy makers within the third sector or involved in the management of n-f-p and voluntary organisations, as well as to those with responsibility for wider public policy, scholars teaching or researching in this area, and students of business and management preparing for roles in social enterprises.
Описание: Andreas Kurth untersucht, welche Agency-Probleme beim Bцrsengang entstehen kцnnen, und diskutiert Ansдtze, um diese zu reduzieren. Die Ergebnisse der empirischen Untersuchung deuten darauf hin, dass bei der Venture-Capital-Finanzierung durch Banken sowie beim Emissionsgeschдft von bestimmten Underwritern verstдrkt Agency-Probleme auftreten, die sich in einer schlechteren Performance der IPOs widerspiegeln.
Описание: "Financing Public Universities" addresses newer practices of resource allocation which tie funding to indicators of performance. The gist of these efforts is to raise the quality of institutional systems. Performance-based budgeting and funding of public universities is part of broader efforts to reform public management, and it is being promoted and implemented by various government agencies around the globe. In particular, European universities with their normally strong governmental ties, or higher education systems molded on European universities, are prime targets of such reforms.Performance funding has made its inroads in attempts to grant university systems managerial autonomy: autonomy was to be granted in exchange for funding modes which are tied to the measurement of performance indicators. Unfortunately, performance-based budgeting or funding measures cannot meet the various expectations: they do not raise the quality of teaching or learning; they do not raise research performance; they take back a great deal of managerial autonomy which is commonly judged to be essential for the well being of higher education institutions, in particular research universities; and they act as automata in place of proper governance and management."Financing Public Universities" addresses policy makers, higher education administrators, scholars and students of higher education management. After an introduction to the theme and to the book (Chapter 1), "Financing Public Universities" covers the evolvement of mass higher education and the associated curtailment of funding (Chapter 2), the public management reform debate (Chapter 3) within which performance-based budgeting or funding evolved (Chapter 4), sketches alternative governance and management modes which can be used instead (Chapter 5), and epitomizes inertia or challenges (Chapter 6). Four appendices cover more technical matters, such as a comparative exposition of the research performance of universities by nation (Appendix C) and examples of funding systems in the UK and in the USA (Appendix D).
Описание: Exactly forty years after Eugene Fama's (1965) article "The Behavior of Stock Market Prices" (Journal of Business), the play "E?cient Capital Markets" is still going strong. With his thesis, Frank Ecker is adding a new act to the play: His work is a combination of several new developments on the analytical and empirical capital market research front. Capital market e?ciency is based on two aspects. First, the ability of investors to identify a situation in which asset prices are out of the capital market equilibrium. Second, on the possibility of the market to make arbitrage pro?ts by driving the prices back to the equilibrium value. Both aspects are conditional on the set of "relevant" information. As a result, the basic question is: What is relevant information and how is it processed by investors? This work is building on the concept of information quality, information uncertainty or information risk. Fama's e?cient market hypothesis is just a special case based on the assumption that new information is absolutely correct and completely credible to all investors. In contrast, this work makes use of the more general assumption that new information can be characterized by very di?erent degrees of credibility, or qu- ity. The setting of initial public o?erings is chosen as one of the few capital market transactions arguably characterized by high information asymmetry between the ?rm's insiders (management) and outsiders (investors).
Описание: This analysis of agricultural investment funds as a vehicle for financing businesses and projects looks at the capital needs of the different actors along the value chain. The 63 funds used in the study, which cover private, public and joint initiatives, are selected from FAO’s 2010 publication on Agricultural Investment Funds for Developing Countries. This review identified a broad range of funds targeting agriculture in developing and transitioning countries and classified them according to geographic distribution, capital, shareholder and investor base, investment instruments, and financial performance, among other criteria.
