Investment Appraisal

...Director (MD) From: Management Accountant Subject: Investment of £840 000 in machinery. Date: 25 December 2010(NB assumed date since project starts 2011) Reference: Inv/App Introduction The purpose of this report is to assess the manner in which information is presented and investment decisions made by Greinam International (GI), consider the relevance of cost figures and other information, calculate the minimum return required and the Net Present Value (NPV) of the project and finally, recommend the course of action with respect to the investment of £840 000 in machinery. Presentation of information The manner in which information is presented can be assessed using the ACCURATE1 mnemonic. Accuracy Most cost figures do not provide an exact measure of expenditure and cash flow on the project. For example, certain costs comprise a fixed cost element, while others include past costs. Cost benefit A complete rework of investment appraisal of the project is needed to avoid the possibility that wrong investments decisions be made. This is clearly not cost-beneficial for the organisation. Completeness This is a very serious issue because, firstly not all expenditure have been considered-for example Operations Supervisor costs have been excluded. Secondly, the complete time span has not been considered. Instead, a three-year payback period has been deemed sufficient. Last, only one appraisal technique has been considered, ignoring......

Finance and Investment

...accountants play a vital role in making key financial decisions that contribute to creating wealth for the shareholders. Methods such as budget forecasting and capital budgeting techniques are utilised and performed by accountants to determine which projects should be undertaken to maximise profits. They construct and provide the financial information necessary for directors to make an informed and calculated decision on where to invest the funds provided by shareholders. Companies have an endless life span and to simply focus on either short term or long term profits would be contrary to the interests of the company and its shareholders. Investors will react strongly to every investment and dividend decision by either increasing or decreasing the share price. A strong focus must therefore be given to every investment and dividend decision made by the company to continue to maintain the confidence of the real owners of the company. By making good financial decisions today and creating wealth for the shareholders, the company will have greater funds to make financial decisions in the future. Question A-2 Part A (i) Robert’s total life expectancy at his retirement age is 84 years (ii) The life expectancy table is based on a summary measure of mortality in a population. These life tables require accurate data on deaths (by age and sex) and on the population (by age and sex).

Mudaraba-Based Investment and Finance

...Mudaraba-based Investment and Finance by A.L.M. Abdul Gafoor* In any economy, private investment occurs in two different ways: active investment, where one or more persons put their own capital into a project, manage it themselves and enjoy the fruits of their labour and capital themselves; and passive investment, where the investor provides the capital and receives a return but takes no further part in the project. Broadly speaking, a passive investor has three options: one, buy shares in a company and receive a dividend; two, buy bonds or securities and receive interest; three, deposit in a bank and receive interest. In an Islamic economy, active investment and the first option are permissible while the last two options would be regarded as riba (interest) income and therefore prohibited. On the entrepreneur side, he may finance his project using his own capital, by selling shares in his enterprise, or by borrowing on interest (from a bank or by issuing bonds/securities). In an Islamic setting, the first two methods are permissible while the last is not. For clarity the scenarios are depicted in Tables 1 and 2. Table 1. Investment options for capital-holders Type of investment Mode of investment Type of return on capital Islamic position Active investment In own enterprise Profit or loss from the enterprise Allowed Passive investment Shares in a company Dividend (profit or loss) from the company Allowed Bonds/securities Fixed positive return......

Capital Markets Investment and Finance

...Introduction: Efficient Market Hypothesis (EMH) implies markets to be rational, incorporating new information to reflect in stock prices rapidly, considering direction and size of the share price movement. Consequently, leaving no opportunities for investors to beat the market and acquire abnormal returns. Predictable information raises the stock prices prior to its occurrence, and rapidly adjusting at the event date. Addendum to EMH, Random Walk Theory proposes market prices abide no pressure from past-price movements thus pursue a random course, making impossible to forecast future-price movements as they are an independent of past-prices. Fama (1970) establish three-level grading system portraying degree of market efficiency, based on investment approach endowing abnormal returns: Market anomalies are inconsistent with EMH and a consequence of deviations and incomprehensible patterns in smooth running of stock markets. Anomalies are statistically considerable and additionally proffer investors with risk adjusted economic returns. Once documented and scrutinized in literature, anomalies tend to disappear, overturn, or attenuate; doubting their subsistence in past, as being statistical irregularity, or have been arbitraged away. This essay will begin by defining limitations of CAPM and introduce three-factor model. Additionally, it will discuss the fundamental anomalies (Value and Size effects), calendar anomalies (January, Weekend and Time-of-the-month effects)......

Real Estate Finance and Investment

...by using the following formula: Value=Gross Annual Rent-Total Yearly Outgoings Payable by LessorRequired Rate of Return-Rental Growth Rate It is noted that since some data for the valuation cannot explicitly be found, so before calculation, following assumptions have been made: * Weekly rent ($640) multiplied by 52weeks is the gross annual rent. * Required rate of return equals 8.5% * According to Realogic, as rent in Zetland has been showing 5% per annum compound growth since 2002, the future growth rate for the valuation is assumed to be the same. * Outgoings are assumed to include Strata, council rates, water charges, property management fees only which is estimated to be $7106.48 based on the information in an investment report for a similar residential building located right next to Form (Realogic, 2010) Therefore, by calculation, the estimated value of the subject property is $747814.8571. Approach 3------ Hypothetical development Hypothetical development approach is not used to value the property in this report because the probability of redevelopment for the subject property is significantly low - the completion year is recent (ref) and thus it would be very unlikely for Form building to be demolished and reconstructed in the near future. http://www.e-architect.co.uk/sydney/form_apartments.htm Apartment | Property Under Valuation | Sold property 1 | Sold property 2 | Sold property 3 | Sold property 4 | Sold property 5 |......
