  • Performance evaluation of equity mutual funds using data envelopment
           analysis
    • Authors: Geetika Sharma, Vipul Sharma
      Pages: 1 - 13
      Abstract: This study has employed the BCC model of non-parametric technique DEA to assess the relative performance of a sample of 33 open ended equity (diversified/large cap) funds selected to represent the Mutual Fund Industry of India for a five year period 2008-2009 to 2012-2013. Specifically, it has carried out a non-parametric analysis of the relationship between output measure proxied by raw returns and a series of input variables including standard deviation, beta and expense ratio.

  • Price discovery of one security traded in several markets around the world
    • Authors: Stoyu I. Ivanov, Artem Meshcheryakov
      Pages: 14 - 21
      Abstract: In this paper, we analyse the price discovery for SPDR Gold Trust, which is traded on five different markets across the world: the USA, Mexico, Hong Kong, Japan, and Singapore. We find that all prices in the five markets are identical until 23 January 2013 when the Hong Kong prices start deviating from the rest of the group. On 1 July 2013 Mexico joins Hong Kong and starts differing from the rest. We hypothesise that until 23 January 2013 price discovery occurs in the USA and the rest of the markets become price takers. We find that even after 23 January 2013 the US gold market of the SPDR Gold Trust ETF still dominates other markets with more than 90% of the price discovery when using the Hasbrouck information share methodology.

  • Factors affecting environmental performance: evidence from banking
           sector in Bangladesh
    • Authors: Mohammad Dulal Miah, Syed Mahbubur Rahman, Marjan Haque
      Pages: 22 - 38
      Abstract: Analysis of environmental impacts of production of goods or services helps assess environmental performance of any activity. This paper aims at determining the factors that influence environmental performance of banks in Bangladesh. Bank's Environmental Performance Score (EnPS) is calculated based on the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Sustainability Guidelines, 2002. All the necessary data are collected from the content analysis of the audited annual reports of 31 scheduled commercial banks for the financial year ending December 2012. Applying multiple regression technique this study finds that bank's credit rating score is positively related to EnPS, whereas premium in share price and bank's longevity in service are negatively associated with EnPS. Contrary to the common perception that a large and highly profitable bank would be environmentally more concerned, the result shows no such association between these variables. Policy-makers, therefore, may urge large and highly profitable banks to lead environmental initiatives towards green banking revolution in Bangladesh.

  • Does capital structure matter? Reflection on capital structure irrelevance
           theory: Modigliani-Miller theorem (MM 1958)
    • Authors: Noura Al-Kahtani, Mohamed Al-Eraij
      Pages: 39 - 46
      Abstract: Since the 1950s, corporate financing has been an arena for on-going debates that focus on Modigliani and Miller's pioneering theorems of 1958 and 1963. The main purpose of this paper is to present a critical reflection on the debate around corporate capital structure irrelevance that was triggered by Modigliani and Miller theorem in 1958, while taking in consideration the literature, theoretical and empirical findings and the recent global financial crisis (i.e. debt crisis). The paper will briefly review and discuss alternative theories of capital structure, such as the traditional view, the trade-off theory and the pecking order theory in light of reality and perfect capital market hypothesis. The paper starts by defining the concept of capital structure, followed by discussing the assumptions of perfect capital markets under which 'the Modigliani and Miller's irrelevance theory' was originally conceptualised. It finally reflects on the findings before proceeding with the paper's conclusion.
      Keywords: capital structure; capital structure irrelevance theory; Modigliani and Miller theorem; traditional view; trade-off theory; pecking order theory; leverage; gearing; debt; global financial crisis; debt crisis

  • Management of working capital - the Achilles heel of small and medium
           enterprises: the case of Greece
    • Authors: Alina B. Hyz, Petros Kalantonis, Dimitris Stavroulakis
      Pages: 47 - 59
      Abstract: The main purpose of this paper is an empirical investigation of the relationship between working capital management and firms' performance in Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in Greece during the crisis period. We used a data set of 459 SMEs split-up over eight sectors of economic activities according to the European NACE classification scheme. The research covers the period of 2008-2012, which gives the five-year period of observation of financial results of selected companies. The efficiency of working capital management was measured by accounts receivables turnover, inventories turnover, accounts payables turnover and cash conversion cycle. Return on assets was used as the profitability variable. The study is based on correlation and regression analysis to analyse data. The results indicate that all working capital components significantly affect Greek SMEs profitability. The paper is organised as follows: in the next section we briefly present the problem based on literature review. This is followed by the presentation of research methodology and the data sources used in the analysis. The results are presented and discussed in Section 3. Last section summarises the conclusions and presents further opportunities for research.

      Abstract: Islamic finance has been presenting itself for many decades as a viable alternative/complementary system to the long existing conventional financial system. However, recent research has claimed that Islamic finance as it is currently practised does not effectively promote economic growth. Hence, the objective of this study is to empirically examine the potential effect of Islamic finance in the specific form of Sukuk issuance on the economic growth represented by three proxies, namely Gross Domestic Product (GDP), Gross Capital Formation (GCF) and trade activities. The data were collected from the Islamic Finance Information Services (IFIS) and the World Bank databases, and were subsequently analysed through Toda and Yamamoto Granger Non-Causality test. Accordingly, the findings indicated that the Sukuk financing had no influence on economic growth for GCC countries. This finding has significant implications that are discussed in detail in the final section.

  • Managing market innovation for competitive advantage: how external
           dynamics hold sway for financial services
    • Authors: Thomas Anning-Dorson, Robert Ebo Hinson, Mohammed Amidu
      Pages: 70 - 87
      Abstract: From the complexity theory, it is argued that external factors largely determine the effectiveness of firm-level strategies. Hence, firms must seek to align their strategies such as market innovation with the prevailing business environment to achieve competitive advantage. We investigate the moderating effect of three environmental factors, regulatory regime, competitive intensity and customer demand, on the relationship between innovation and competitive advantage creation in financial services firms. Data were collected from the Ghana's financial services sector with a focus on banking and insurance institutions. Constructs were validated through confirmatory factor analysis while robust regressions estimates were run to test their hypothesised relationships. We found that both competitive intensity and regulatory regime positively increase the effect of market innovation on competitive advantage. It was also found that the interaction between competitive intensity and regulatory regime has a positive effect while the interaction between customer demand and regulatory regime dampens the positive relationship between market innovation and competitive advantage creation. The concurrent occurrences of the three factors were found to have a negative moderating effect.

  • Role of Islamic banking in financial inclusiveness in Pakistan: promise,
           performance and prospects
    • Authors: Thomas Anning-Dorson, Robert Ebo Hinson, Mohammed Amidu
      Pages: 88 - 102
      Abstract: This paper reviews the progress in Islamic banking industry of Pakistan in contributing towards an egalitarian and equitable financial system. A set of quantitative indicators are used to examine the performance of Islamic banks towards fostering an inclusive financial system. The results highlight that so far, the performance of Islamic banks on these indicators shows a gap between promise and performance. This study highlights that high average cost of financing and concentration on the corporate sector and upper-class individuals is inconsistent with the goal of circulation of wealth and equitable distribution of income. The paper also identifies that people might need finance for health, education and setting up small businesses, but they cannot be served by Islamic banks with the available product structures. The paper gives a geographical footprint of Islamic banks which shows that they are primarily operating in big urban cities. Finally, it is argued that most of the Islamic banking debt-based products are close, but relatively expensive, substitutes for conventional banking in terms of financial costs.
