  • As I noted, the financial crisis has created an increasingly global outlook among policymakers. More and more, national regulators are influenced by policies fashioned abroad, and international bodies are stepping up policy coordination. At the same time, the extraordinary worldwide rise of as- set managers as financial intermediaries has created new opportunities for funds. Responding to these and other trends, the Institute readied a new initiative —ICI Global— launched early in fiscal year 2012.

  • Public MCH-FP service provision in Bangladesh has a number of distinguishing features. The pattern of service utilization is lopsided with low utilization of most facilities at the community level (upazila and below), and over utilization at the district and at teaching hospitals. The major reason for low utilization of primary level facilities is the poor service quality and negative perception of the community about the types of services available.

  • During the last decade, hedge funds have become one of the most important institutional investors in global financial markets. Although their activities have been viewed critically by regulators, politicians, and the public, this negative perspective is often based more on myth than on thorough economic analysis and empirical facts. Most people lack the necessary information and understanding of the role that hedge funds play in financial markets. Blaming them for the financial crisis or other market turbulences is often based on specific conjectures and not on rigorous research.

  • At the peak of the stock market boom in the late 1990s, state and local public pension systems experienced an unprecedented growth in their asset value. As a result, pension benefits for public employees were increased in many states and at the same time government employers reduced their contribution to the pension systems. The stock market downturn between 2000 and 2002, however, brought this almost perfect combination to a halt.

  • Risk management is an evolving discipline. Several organizations have sought to provide assistance and thought leadership through the development of risk management frameworks and guidance. Much, if not most, of this guidance is focused on traditional operating companies and does not contemplate the externally managed structure of investment companies. As a result, while the guidance these organizations have provided is sound, it typically does not focus on the unique issues faced by funds and their boards of directors.

  • We focus on the dynamics of active management skills, and how an investor might optimally choose active funds during varying business conditions. Building on studies such as Avramov and Wermers (2006) and Moskowitz (2000), we allow for the possibility of time-varying mutual fund alphas and betas among active managers in Europe. Following Christopherson, et al. (1998) and Ferson and Schadt (1996), we model such time-variation using a publicly available set of conditioning state variables.

  • For the investor types believing that active managers can generate alphas, we nd that the ability to identify superior performing funds is further improved, albeit slightly, by augmenting the four-factor model with country indices, even if these indices represent non-priced factors, consis- tent with Pastor and Stambaugh (2002a). To illustrate, our baseline analysis nds CAPM alpha enhancements of up to 5% per year from using macroeconomic state variables to choose funds, relative to active manager choice using an unconditional CAPM model.

  • The tax-exempt money market is more complex than the taxable money market. That’s largely because of a supply-and-demand imbalance for very short-term municipal securities. There’s a high level of demand for these issues—much of it coming from individuals who want to minimize their tax bill by placing their cash in a tax-exempt money market mutual fund. But supply is limited.
