Abstract Most finance textbooks present the Weighted Average Cost of Capital WACC calculation as: WACC = Kd×(1-T)×D% + Ke×E% (1) Where Kd is the cost of debt before taxes, T is the tax rate, D% is the percentage of debt on total value, Ke is the cost of equity and E% is the percentage of equity on total value. All of them precise (but not with enough emphasis) that the values to calculate D% y E% are market values. Although they devote special space and thought to calculate Kd and Ke,
The ESBG is also concerned for the activities that would be included in the ring-fence. In
the Liikanen Report it is said that assets held for trading would be included for the sake of
the calculation of trading assets. The ESBG believes that this approach would create serious
problems for the management of asset portfolios, affecting a great number of fixed-term
assets held to comply with the liquidity coverage ratio amongst other reasons. We consider
that for the sake of the calibration of the trading activities it would be more appropriate to

The long duration of Trichet bonds removes the immediate crisis caused by short term
expiration of significant amounts of debt which is looming over Greece, Ireland, Portugal, Spain
and possibly other EU countries. Trichet bonds allow distressed countries to defer maturities
over a longer period and to effect economic reforms before having to return to capital markets on
the basis of their own credit-worthiness. Trichet Bonds will enable sovereigns to see bond
spreads be reduced considerably from their record levels at present.

calculators as the primary tool and have little (if any) coverage of how to build spreadsheet models. This
book fills that gap. It teaches students how to build financial models in Excel.

persistent organic chemical pollutants, as well as very high levels of

Regarding banks’ capital structures, the standard view is that capital regulation
constitutes an additional, overriding departure from the Modigliani-Miller irrelevance
proposition (see for example Berger et al., 1995, Miller, 1995, or Santos, 2001). Commercial
banks have deposits that are insured to protect depositors and to ensure financial stability. In
order to mitigate the moral-hazard of this insurance, commercial banks must be required to
hold a minimum amount of capital.
SAIs also face widely varying situations regarding the extent of the discretion that they have
in the use of available audit resources. Some have almost total discretion in selecting which
audits to perform and when to perform them. Others are constrained by requirements in law
to perform certain audits, such as an annual audit of the execution of the state budget.
Results may need to be delivered by a specified date that may consume a substantial portion
of the available audit resources, at least during certain periods of the year. Nevertheless, all
