Ongoing reforms are mainly aimed at enhancing transparency and reporting to improve investor protection and strengthen the financial system. These economic and regulatory pressures may make it necessary to examine strategies, business and operating models, to increase efficiency, optimise costs, and thus achieve and sustain profitability in this new environment. In other words, the challenges of today will help to mould the future of the industry in years to come.

INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT PERSPECTIVE OF MICRO-ENTERPRISES

INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT PERSPECTIVE OF MICRO-ENTERPRISES

This affirms that to avoid risk tolerance, investors should consider financial planning as this involves an analysis the possible future events and how these events impact the firms [6]. The financial plan thus involves forecasting of possible state or business’ nature; evaluating the effects of this or that state on the firm; and analyzing the options and strategies to be considered by management in response to forecasted states. Thus, the financial plan’s end goal is basically to generate pro forms of financial statements, an income statement, a balance sheet, changes in financial positions and budget. The plan must be stochastic in nature rather than too deterministic. It should show a continuous process until a new information becomes readily available. Finally, the plan should be associated to the ex post results of facts as means to evaluate performance narrative to stated goals [7]. The respondents’ investment management perspective with respect of the working capital management in micro- enterprises was presented in Table 2. It can be seen in the table that examine inventory levels to raise the capital needed to carry inventory and profitability of the business has the highest weighted mean of 3.53 with verbal interpretation of strongly agree.

Performance and Persistence in Institutional Investment Management

Performance and Persistence in Institutional Investment Management

Earlier studies that examine performance and persistence in institutional investment management are hampered either by survivorship bias, a short time series (which limits the power of time series-based tests), or design. The first of these studies, Lakonishok, Shleifer, and Vishny (1992), examines the performance of 341 investment management firms between 1983 and 1989. They find that performance is poor on average, and acknowledge that although some evidence of persistence exists, data limitations prevent a robust conclu- sion. Coggin, Fabozzi, and Rahman (1993) also find that investment managers have limited skill in selecting stocks. Ferson and Khang (2002) use portfolio weights to infer persistence, and Tonks (2005) examines the performance of U.K. pension fund managers between 1983 and 1997. Both find some evidence of excess performance but with small samples. Christopherson, Ferson, and Glassman (1998) also find some evidence of persistence among 185 investment managers between 1979 and 1990, but their sample also suffers from survival bias. Goyal and Wahal (2008), while not directly interested in persistence, re- port that plan sponsors hire investment managers after large positive excess returns, but that post-hiring returns are zero; in contrast, pre-firing returns are not exclusively negative and post-firing returns display modest reversion. It is tempting to conclude that there is no persistence based on their results but such a conclusion does not necessarily follow. As they describe in their paper, the hiring and firing of investment managers is influenced by factors unre- lated to performance. For example, investment managers may be fired because of personnel turnover at the investment management firm or reallocations of investment mandates from one asset class to another. In addition to agency considerations unrelated to performance, institutional frictions such as minor- ity ownership of the investment manager, the use of an investment consultant, etc., can influence these decisions. This means that post-hiring and post-firing returns are also affected by selection mechanisms that are uncorrelated with performance, thereby making it difficult to make precise inferences about per- sistence in the universe of investment managers. In contrast, our paper tackles the subject head-on, with the largest sample to date that is uncontaminated by survivorship bias.

Guidance Note Investment Management Services

Guidance Note Investment Management Services

It may often be the case that the authorised agent’s income from acting on behalf of the non-resident is received by way of agreed remuneration, whether a fixed figure, or one based on a share of the profits generated in the non- resident’s trade. There is no restriction in respect of such remuneration provided it is on an arm’s length basis. However, where an agent is providing investment management services for third parties, it is not uncommon that the agent, from a marketing perspective, will be required to demonstrate its bona fides by also being an investor in the non-resident’s trade. It is in respect of this investment that a restriction applies. The restriction applies to the aggregate amount of the profits of a non-resident’s trade, for a chargeable period, to which the agent and its resident connected persons, have, or may acquire, a beneficial entitlement by reason of—

On the Disclosure of the Cost of Investment Management

On the Disclosure of the Cost of Investment Management

I would argue that no good reasons have been put forward for why all the costs of investment management, both visible and hidden, should not ultimately be fully disclosed. They are after all genuine costs borne by the investor. Furthermore, recent studies have shown that hidden costs are at least as high as visible costs, if not much higher. Full transparency could be introduced in stages. First, the following indirect cash costs could be reported in the form of both a ‘rate of cost’ – which could then be deducted from the gross rate of return to give a net rate of return – and as a monetary amount – which can then be compared with the monetary value of the investor’s portfolio:

J.P. Morgan Investment Management Inc.

The Adviser uses JPMII, an affiliate, to facilitate the distribution of certain pooled investment funds. JPMDS, an affiliate, serves as the distributor for the JPMorgan Funds. The Adviser benefits from the distribution services of these affiliated distributors or placement agents as they increase the assets upon which the Adviser’s fees are based. The Adviser and the broker-dealers have procedures in place to identify any conflicts of interest and have established controls to mitigate these risks. Additionally, the Adviser relies on the fact that broker-dealers are members of and regulated by FINRA and have procedures to comply with sales practices regulated by FINRA that may arise from such activities. J.P. Morgan Securities LLC (“JPMS”), an affiliate, is dually registered as a broker-dealer with FINRA and an investment adviser with the SEC. JPMS is also registered as a futures commission merchant with the CFTC. JPMS is a wholly-owned subsidiary of JPMC. Pursuant to the 1940 Act, persons affiliated with the registered JPMorgan Funds and persons who are affiliated with such persons are prohibited from dealing with the registered JPMorgan Fund as principal in the purchase and sale of securities unless an exceptive order allowing such transactions is obtained from the SEC. The SEC has granted exceptive orders permitting certain registered JPMorgan Funds to engage in principal transactions with JPMS involving taxable and tax-exempt money market instruments (including commercial paper, banker acceptances and medium term notes) and repurchase agreements. The orders are subject to certain conditions, which are intended to avoid potential conflicts of interest. The Adviser has controls in place to monitor its ongoing compliance with the conditions. The Adviser also utilizes JPMS as a futures commission merchant for clearing purposes only, and transactions are not executed with the affiliate and as a placement agent for some of JPMIM’s private funds.

Second, each account is assigned to a Portfolio Manager and a Portfolio Administrator. Together, they are responsible to ensure that the account is invested according to the client's objectives as outlined in the client's Investment Policy Statement. Formal client account reviews are typically performed on a regular basis coordinated with the end of the month results. These reviews may also include a meeting with the client either in person or by telephone to discuss whether or not the client has had any material changes that would warrant a redirection of the client's investment objectives, to discuss possible tax issues and/or to review the past quarter's performance. These reviews may include an analysis of the asset mix, weighting for each category, and a comparison to the stated guidelines for the account. The portfolios will also be reviewed for compliance with asset quality, tax strategy, and diversification and concentration guidelines. Periodic portfolio adjustments may be made to fine tune the asset mix relative to diversification and concentration guidelines based upon the degree of variance from the desired levels.
