Foreign exchange risk management: issues, analysis and empirical applications

The Interest Rate Parity formula has the following consequence: in a pair of currencies, the one with a higher interest rate will depreciate, and vice versa. These natural movements of exchange rate are not perfect, but have critical implications for international economic activity. For instance, an agent decides to take a loan in a foreign currency which has a much lower interest rate than his domestic currency. When the agent borrows the money in a foreign currency, he exchanges it for its domestic currency at the current spot rate. Then there are two options, he can wait to the moment of repayment and exchange at the spot rate, which is unknown at that moment, or he can assure the exchange rate with a forward operation. In the last case, differences between interest rates are compensated with a strengthening of the foreign currency, so at the end the agent will have to pay more money in domestic currency to repay the loan in foreign currency and its interests. In this way, forward rates prevent agents from arbitraging. And in the case that the agent decides to risk its position and wait to the spot rate of the repayment date, he may or not obtain a beneficial exchange rate. But as Interest Rate Parity is usually fulfilled, borrowing in a currency with lower interest rates (or investing with higher rates) will usually have the same effect than doing it in the domestic currency.

INTRODUCTION INSTITUTIONAL STUDY ABROAD COMMITTEE

Although a basic understanding of risk management issues related to study abroad is essential to establishing a successful and safe program, institutions should consider undertaking a risk assessment audit which consists of a comprehensive review of key health, safety, and liability issues and conditions of an education abroad program. The suggestions listed below, in addition to materials provided by outside sources, are tools for understanding risk and how to manage it. Faculty and staff can identify additional matters which apply to individual campuses and programs.

Dijiang Huang proposed the MobiCloud (Mobile Cloud) framework which uses addressing trust management, secure routing, and risk management issues in the network to enhance the communication. They also discussed the cloud computing technology to form a new environment for MANET operations in multiple service provisioning domains according to the criticality of MANET services and corresponding security requirements [8]. Dan Chalmers dealt about the QoS concepts and techniques for mobile distributed computing environments and presented a survey. The requirements of current and future mobile computing are examined and the services required to support mobility are discussed. They also provided an overview about the generic concepts of QoS specification and management. This paper also discussed about the effect of link type, movement on QoS requirements and the Restrictions of Portable Devices on QoS [9].

Home Warranty Insurance Briefing Note

Home Warranty Insurance Briefing Note

The conditions imposed on builders as a result of these assessments can and do restrict a builders ability to grow and/or diversify their business. In this area the home warranty underwriter becomes a pseudo building regulator and while this may be of benefit to the insurer in potentially managing their risk, for many building businesses it has been detrimental to growth and development.

The APHIRM toolkit: an evidence based system for workplace MSD risk management

The APHIRM toolkit: an evidence based system for workplace MSD risk management

Following initial development of the survey as outlined above, drafts of the APHIRM Toolkit Stages 1 to 3 were pilot tested in a variety of workplaces in other industry sectors with high MSD risk (aged care, mining, local government). During this second stage of toolkit devel- opment the survey was amended by addition of items from the Copenhagen Psychosocial Scale (COPSOQ), expanding its coverage of psychosocial hazards to ac- commodate the wider range of job types. Also, wording of some items was amended to clarify intended mean- ings. These amendments were essential because average literacy levels were not high in the kinds of jobs being targeted, and because it became evident that some ques- tions were likely to be understood differently by people in different jobs (consistent with results of Clausen et al., 2019 [66]). Table 2 outlines content of the current APHIRM Toolkit survey, with items grouped in accord with COPSOQ categories. Note, however, that work- place risk management is based on scores for individual survey items rather than general constructs, since the greater detail in individual items can more easily be linked to specific workplace sources of risk at Stage 2 of the risk management cycle.

Vol 2, No 11 (2011)

T he paper presents insights on the aspects and the issues that are to be managed in supply chain such as Customers Supplier Relationship Issues, Global Issues, Knowledge management issue, Logistics management, Partnership Issues, Contemporary Issues and challenges in Supply Chain Management. A key element of successful supply base management involves downstream integration of customers as well as the management of upstream suppliers. Knowledge management is the systematic and organizationally specified process of acquiring, organizing, and communicating knowledge so that employees can use it to become more effective and productive in their work. Logistics management is for the relationship between logistics and supply chain management. Global Issues projected strategic benefits and problems relating to the outsourcing decision. These include issues of cost, quality, flexibility, strategic focus, and diversification, the potential loss of critical skills and knowledge, and appropriation of final product value. Partnership Issues would provide the competitive edge to all the participants in a value chain to prevail and grow. Contemporary Issues and challenges in Supply Chain Management, Minimizing Uncertainty, Minimizing the Number of Linkages or Stages in the Network, Improving Process Quality, Minimizing Variety and Delaying Differentiation, Reducing Replenishment Cycle Time, Improving Flexibility, Enhancing Demand Fulfillment Capability, Competing on Service.

Risk assessment of terrorist and extremist prisoners

Risk assessment of terrorist and extremist prisoners

Generally, research on the risk assessment of offenders has found that third-generation clinical-actuarial risk assessment measures are consistently the most reliable, however no such tools have yet been properly validated for terrorist prisoners. Some early writers argued that tests which were developed for and regularly used on other forensic populations, such as HCR20 and PCL-R, could be usefully used to help risk assessments with terrorist prisoners (Roberts & Horgan, 2008). Certainly such tools have been used in at least a few terrorist cases. However, a growing consensus has built up since then that the disadvantages of using these tests outweigh the advantages. Overall these tests are poorly designed for terrorist and extremist prisoners and in general their use should be avoided (e.g. Dernevik et al., 2009; Monahan, 2012; Pressman & Flockton, 2012b). Even the authors of the tests have themselves expressed serious reservations about their use with terrorist prisoners (e.g. Hart, 2010) and overall it seems preferable to look elsewhere for appropriate tests.

Even where the contributions are less moments and more the raising of issues or the taking of an opportunity to stand on a soapbox and let rip on a particular hobby horse, for example harm reduction for drug users, desistance focused practice, or even to market an institution, for example, the CEP (European Probation Council), all are interesting, often provocative, and worthwhile contributions in their own right, if not, I think, quite what the sponsors were intending. In this respect, a must-read is the personal reflection on ‘effective practice’, 10 years on, by Tim Chapman, one of its most influential progenitors. Another fascinating contribution chronicles the legislative pathway by which hostels moved from being alternatives to inadequate homes for young offenders, in the early part of the century, to today’s focus on high risk offenders and public protection.

DENTAL MANAGEMENT IN STROKE PATIENTS

DENTAL MANAGEMENT IN STROKE PATIENTS

On the other hand, dental and periodontal lesions occur very often in individuals with a cerebral vascular accident in their medical history, especially for those suffering from ischaemia of the carotidian vascular system, since the external carotid artery with its branches provides blood supply for the dento- maxillary region. The importance of ischemia for the local vascular and neurological structures of the dental and periodontal system is increased, since it induces functional disorders and morphological disturbances, which can operate like a pathological “chain”, its „links” being able to trigger insufficiently known physiopathological mechanisms. According to this assumption, the dental and periodontal lesions can be very often fastened first of all due to affected arterial afferent system, while the local etiological factors, very important and very well known otherwise, are to be considered risk factors tightly connected to the morbid process. 5

Regulatory Compliance Oversight

I attest that I have examined the promises assigned to my area, and have appropriately indicated whether or not there were significant changes in internal controls, or in other factors that could significantly affect internal controls, subsequent to the initial date of the promise. This includes any corrective actions with regard to significant deficiencies and material weaknesses. I have also immediately reported to appropriate levels of management any significant control failings or weaknesses that have been identified, together with the details of the corrective action being undertaken.

Land Valuation: Key Tool for Disaster Risk Management

Land Valuation: Key Tool for Disaster Risk Management

Insurance can be a very important tool for disaster mitigation and in some contexts is the only available remedy. The valuer and loss-adjuster support the insurance function by quantifying the risk insured before the event and supporting claims after the event. When large-scale disasters occur it is usually difficult to mobilize valuation and loss-adjusting expertise fast enough to settle claims promptly enough to prevent hardship. This is frequently a critical factor. Insurance is usually, although not always, a private sector function and insurance companies are usually private sector entities. The policy-holders are usually individuals or private companies. It is rare, although not unknown, for the public sector to provide insurance cover or arrange reinsurance for those large-scale risks that private sector insurers refuse to cover at the property level. This can especially be the case for natural disasters where huge financial risks may be realized across a wide area from a single event.

Addressing Land Issues in Disaster Risk Management in the Pacific Island Countries

Addressing Land Issues in Disaster Risk Management in the Pacific Island Countries

There have been calls for improved integration of disaster risk reduction (DRR), climate change adaptation (CCA) and mitigation communities, but there are no specific details about how this could be done (Birkmann and von Teichman, 2010). One challenge that previously hindered effective disaster response, with implications for longer-term adaptation, was the disproportionate impact on the poor and vulnerable, particularly those with limited tenure security. According to Wisner and Luce (1993) disasters produce more marginalized people because many of those who survive are unable to recover their livelihoods, become destitute and are forced to live in even more vulnerable situations than before the disaster. Land-related impacts include land grabbing, involuntary resettlement and loss of access to land. This is evidenced by the growing literature on how land issues are best addressed in the context of Disaster Risk Management (DRM).
