I am suppose to act as a consultant for a financial firm who seeks to expand its funds into the Asian Capital Markets (Singapore and Indonesia) so I am suppose to provide a research in regards to:
1. Compare and contrast factors that have influenced the individual and relative performance of Debt, Equity and Derivatives markets in each of the countries (Singapore&Indonesia) for the period 2005-2012.
a. focus on pre-GFC, GFC and post GFC periods
b. Use quantitative and qualitative approaches to identify factors that have influenced BOTH returns and risks during the period
c. Compare and contrast factors affecting performance in the countries
2. BASED ON THE PRECEDING ANALYSIS, make observations as to factors expected to impact the debt and equity markets of the countries over the next 2 years (2014,2015)
P.S I would like to know what the tutor/expert will be using for the quantitative approach before I will make a decision because if it is relevant, then I trust that he/she will do a good job. If not I am afraid he/she will not know what this subject is about.
Also since it will be a research base, I will provide database from uni… but would really need to make sure he/she is good.
read the ASIAN CAPITAL MARKETS STRUCTURE document first (it contains the report question, link to database and structure to follow that I have thought through).
Please note you will need to use qualitative and QUANTITATIVE approach to identify the factors. Qualitative would be information based on macroeconomic factors or journal articles where quantitative would be where you find correlation between between beta and equity risk premium, or any other quantitative approaches you can think of. You will have to provide this calculations to me as I need it in the appendices.
I have provided some articles I’ve found on my university’s databases. You will need to go to Monash’ library database to further read on Singapore and Indonesia. Remember this report is based on SINGAPORE and INDONESIA.
I need to compare and contrast factors that have influenced individual and relative performance of DEBT, EQUITY and DERIVATIVES markets in Singapore and Indonesia during 2005-2012
In particular, the answer will need to a. focus on pre gfc, gfc, post gfc periods
b. use quantitative and qualitative approaches to identify factors that have influenced both returns and risk during the period
c. compare and contrast the factors affecting perfomance in the countries
then Q2. make observations as to what factors are expected to impart the debt and equity markets of the countries over the next 2 years.
Here are factors driving growth in Asian Equity markets: International investor diversification, financial integration and restrictions on capital controls, role of cross listing on foreign exchanges, growing domestic instituitional investor base across Asia, improvements in market infrastructure, role of margin lending
