      Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to value the Performance efficiency of Intellectual Capital (IC) on Financial performance indicators of Titan Company Limited. Data required for analysis were collected from the Annual reports of the company for a period of twenty years. This study uses a DEA – CCR – Output Model which consist of intellectual capital indices as input and financial performance measures as output. Results of the efficiency analysis reveals that of the 20 years studied, only 6 years (2007, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2015, and 2016) were found to be the best performing years in terms of harnessing the goodness of intellectual capital. Some years were very close to perfect efficiency score of one, but the rest of the years showed very poor utilisation of intellectual capital to impact financial performance.

  • A Simulation Model for Pricing the Spread in a Credit Default Swap:
           Application and Analysis#
    • Authors: Madhvi Sethi, Parthiv Thakkar, Zahid M. Jamal
      Pages: 9 - 18
      Abstract: This paper explores pricing the contract of a Credit Default Swap (CDS) using a simulation model. It attempts to determine the spread value which is a periodic payment to be made by the protection buyer. It also helps in identifying the factors that should be taken into account to determine the true value of the payment which would hedge the risk in case of a credit event by the issuer of the underlying asset. The paper uses the Hull and White pricing model for creating the simulation model. This model is then applied to analyse CDSs of countries having different credit ratings. The paper using the model analyses the actual and estimated spread of the different countries and discusses the possible reasons for the same.

    • Authors: Thilak Venkatesan, Venkataraman R.
      Pages: 19 - 29
      Abstract: Financial literacy will enable better decision making and efficient management of funds. The knowledge of basic foundations of time value can result in building a robust portfolio. The recent initiatives by the government on financial inclusion aids in promoting faster access to transfer benefits. The policy implementation on bank accounts for all, linking of Aadhar to the accounts, insurance of minimum sum assured for all and the basic annuation schemes are some of the initiatives well devised by the Modi Government. The RBI on the other hand, had initiated various financial literacy programmes to have significant inclusion. The key to successful inclusion is financial literacy. In this context, the paper attempted to identify factors that determine financial literacy. The data was collected through primary sources trough structured questionnaire. The tools used for the analysis was confirmatory factor analysis and structural equation modelling. The factors identified were financial attitude, behavioural factors, financial knowledge and influence and among the factors financial knowledge and influence were observed to predict financial literacy.

  • Basel - III Framework on Liquidity Standards - A Case Study on South
           Indian Bank Ltd.#
    • Authors: Subramoniam K.
      Pages: 31 - 53
      Abstract: A bank is said to have adequate liquidity when it can raise sufficient funds both by increasing liabilities (deposits) and by realizing assets promptly. Bank’s liquidity management, therefore, is the process of generating funds to meet contractual obligations like new loan demand, existing loan commitment and deposit withdrawals at reasonable prices at all times. The main forms of liquidity risks are ‘Funding Risk’, ‘Time Risk’ and ‘Call Risk’. Measuring and managing liquidity risk are one of the most vital activities of commercial banks. This case study brings out the procedure given by Reserve Bank in the lines of Basel III framework and the liquidity management practices of South Indian Bank. While analysing the liquidity in Flow approach and Stock approach it is observed that there is a better liquidity for the Bank to meet obligations in some time buckets and in some, the position needs improvement.

  • Challenges and Opportunities of Micro and Small Enterprises Strategy in
           Ethiopia Urban development, the case of Ambo Town, Oromia, Ethiopia#
    • Authors: Yared Teshome Geneti
      Pages: 55 - 64
      Abstract: In Ethiopia, Micro and Small Enterprise (MSE) is prioritised as important means of economic diversification, job creation, income generation and equity distribution as indispensable poverty reduction sector since 2006. Despite the great attention given to micro and small enterprises, little research exists that examines challenges and opportunities of the Sector in the implementation trajectory. With the new initiative of National Development Programme to Accelerate Sustainable Development to Eradicate Poverty (PASDEP) in 2006-2010, the government has been commencing a new Micro and Small Enterprises Development Strategy. However, the blue prints strategy would be able to prove in the process to achieve the goals and target through timely evaluation of its implementations. It has been long time and common to listen and observe complains of MSEs on the overall sectoral performance and strategic incompatibility both among the unemployed societies and existing MSEs. Based on this rationale, the study was intended to assess the challenges and opportunities of the existing MSE strategy in Ambo town. In this descriptive research primary data were collected from 135 MSEs in Ambo using stratified and purposive sampling design.
      MSEs in Ambo town are facing different challenges. These challenges are identified as marketing, financial, good governance, i.e., lack of market place; inadequacy credit facilities and inefficient service delivery. The study shows that the long and delayed procedure to establish MSEs is the most common challenges observed in both the old (2006) and new (2011) strategies. These are mainly as a result of inefficient human resource capacities of the sector and cumbersome procedures of credit and saving institution in the town. Moreover, a little understanding of unemployed society on the strategy is the main gap creating misunderstandings. Findings indicated that, the above challenges are a bottle-neck to the goal set by the strategy to create jobs for unemployment and being urban base of local economic and social development. In prospect wise, the study asserted that, the 2011 strategy has been improving MSEs to have a clear definition, typical set ups and structure arrangements as enterprise. Therefore, the strategy has identified as the means to change the societal structure by creating broad local economic and social development to the extent of medium investors. Finally, promoting awareness to active unemployed citizens by giving continues capacity building for both office staff and members of enterprises, local governance reforms and the rechecking of MSE establishment procedures are important in alleviating the problems at implementation stage.

    • Authors: Sathyanarayana S., Harish S. N., Sudhindra Gargesha
      Pages: 65 - 76
      Abstract: The recent fluctuations in the crudes prices have captured the researcher’s attention towards the crucial role that crudes prices play on the economy of any nation. The volatility in crude price has influenced the uncertainty in the price expectation in the countries economy. As majority of the empirical studies support that the crude oil price volatility significantly influences the country’s economy and also the stock returns. Therefore, understanding the movement of stock returns is an important issue from the perspective of a developing economy like India. Therefore, it is necessary to identify the variables that drives the stock prices are very important for the market participants and policy makers. The aim of this paper is to investigate the volatility of crude prices and its impact on Indian stock market. For the purpose of the study the data has been collected from Prowess data base for a period from 2006 to 2015. The collected data has been tested for stationarity by employing ADF test and the length intervals for each variable to run the AIC. Later a linear regression has been run. The volatility of the Sensex has been measured by applying GARCH (1,1) model. The linear regression results show that changes in crudes prices have an impact on Sensex. Apart from that the study concludes that the Crude prices was significant in the volatility of the Sensex and have the competency to transmit shock on Sensex. Therefore, policy makers have to take the movement of the crudes prices while framing the policies that affect the economy at large and stock market in particular. Finally, these results have been compared to the available evidence.
