Lecture Investments (6/e) - Chapter 15: The term structure of interest rates

In this chapter we explore the pattern of interest rates for different-term assets. We attempt to identify the factors that account for that pattern and determine what information may be derived from an analysis of the so-called term structure of interest rates, the structure of interest rates for discounting cash flows of different maturities.

Buffett’s Alpha

We control for risk exposures in measuring the funds' ability to outperform following the four factor approach advocated by Carhart (1997). We start with a Pan-European four-factor model. The four factors include a market risk factor, measured by the MSCI Europe total return index minus the one-month Euribor short rate; a size factor (small minus big, or SMB) that captures the di erence between returns on the Europe STOXX Small Cap Return Index and the Europe STOXX Large Cap Return Index; a value factor (high minus low, or HML) computed as the di erence between European value and growth portfolios. Finally, our momentum factor is constructed from the following...

To detect funds with positive or negative performance, the standard approach in the academic literature (e.g., Jensen (1968), Ferson and Schadt (1996), Ferson and Qian (2004)) can be described as follows. The presence of differential performance (positive or negative alphas) is tested for each of the M funds in the population. Then, a conventional significance level γ is set (e.g., 5 percent) and all funds with p-values smaller than γ are said to have significant estimated alphas. Finally, these significant alphas are counted in order to provide an estimate of the number of funds with differential performance....


When considering supply side factors, we study characteristics of the financial sector that would influence the speed of adoption of mutual funds. We examine the effect of bank concentration, restrictions placed on banks to enter the securities business, the number of distribution channels available for funds, the presence of an explicit deposit insurance system for banks, and the time and cost to set up a new fund. We find that nations that restrict banks from entering the securities business have smaller equity and bond fund sectors. In addition, countries with a...

The Role of Investment Funds in Romania

The inclusion of Business Angels in the range of ‘informal’ (as opposed to ‘institutional’) investors provides us an indication that there are potential difficulties in measuring the size of the Business Angel community. Mason and Harrison identify two main problems, identification and definition. Regarding the former, in his seminal work on Business Angels, William Wetzel (1983) notes that the total population of Business Angels is unknown and probably unknowable on account of their invisibility, desire for anonymity, and the undocumented nature of their investing. Most studies are based on samples of convenience, such as angels who are members of Business...

Expert Guide Investment Funds

In particular, note that there are two potential sources of timing-related fund returns that are correlated with public information. The first, predictable fund risk-loadings, may be due to changing stock-level risk loadings, to flows into the funds, or to manager timing of the benchmarks. The second exploits predictability in the benchmark returns themselves. Such predictability is captured through the time-series regression in Eq. (2). Because both of these timing components are assumed to be easily replicated by an investor, we do not consider them to be based on manager ‘‘skill.’’ That is, the expression ai0 þ a0 i1zt1 captures benchmark timing and stock picking skills that exploit only...

A guide to Understanding Mutual Funds

When considering demand side factors, we find that wealthier countries, measured by GDP per capita, and countries with a more educated population have a larger mutual fund sector. These effects are particularly pronounced for the equity sector, which may require a higher level of investor sophistication. Internet penetration is also positively related to the size of the mutual fund sector, but it is highly correlated with the other demand size variables. In addition, the mutual fund sector is larger in countries where a larger fraction of pension plans are defined contribution plans. ...

Have property funds performed? A ULI Europe Policy & Practice Committee report

Since the mid 1990s there has been a significant growth in the aggregate size and number of global property funds, largely fuelled by the investment of significant capital from institutional investors. This falls into two broad types: the 'core' universe and the 'opportunity' universe. This growth has seen fund managers launching new funds and raising more capital at a time when many have been unable to show clear evidence that their funds have provided historic out-performance against market benchmarks or performance objectives. Despite the lack of transparency/clarity as to how well funds perform compared to their peer group and/or the direct market, many fund management houses have...
