States from 1991 onwards. Using these monthly data, we document a statisti-
cally significant smart money effect in the United States whose magnitude is
comparable to that of the United Kingdom. However, even at the quarterly data
frequency, the post-1990 period is suggestive of the presence of smart money in
the United States (whereas the 1970 to 1990 period is not). These conclusions
hold irrespective of whether the momentum factor is taken into consideration.
Thus, Sapp and Tiwari’s results are due to the weight they put on the pre-1991
period, and to their use of quarterly data.
When the actual holdings of the fund to be evaluated are available,
it is possible to apply so-called weight-based performance measures.
These measures essentially examine the covariance of the manager’s
actual holdings, measured as proportions or portfolio weights, with
the subsequent returns of the assets. The idea is that a manager who
increases the fund’s exposure to a security or asset class before it
performs well, or who anticipates and avoids losers, has investment

FINANCIAL ANALYSIS AND PLANNING
A camel look like an animal designed by a committee. If a firm made all its financial decisions piecemeal, it would end up with a financial camel. Therefore, smart financial managers consider the overall effect of financing and investment decisions
In all of history, no children have had more money of their own, more pressure to spend it, and less guidance in how to do it than the kids of America at the dawn of the 21st century. “Today, more than ever, children must learn about money, for it is both a source of confusion and an indispensable tool they must learn to use.” Those words made a lot of sense back in 1950, in a Kiplinger’s magazine article entitled “Will Your Child Know the Value of a Dollar?” And they're even more true today....
In addition to testing for the presence of smart money, the disaggregated na-
ture of our fund f low data allows us to examine two key hypotheses with respect
to mutual fund investor behavior. Specifically, we are in a position to compare
the quality of fund selection decisions made by individual and institutional
investors, and likewise to compare fund buying and selling decisions.

Fourth, this study applies new methodologies which have never been applied to
emerging markets. For instance, Chapter 5 explores the determinants of risk-adjusted mutual
fund performance using multidimensional regression in addition to the common approach,
which is to use a zero-cost trading strategy. This alternative methodology can explore several
factors simultaneously while controlling the effect between one and another. Using the two
methods allows us to examine determinants of fund performance statistically and
economically and it provides more meaningful results.
There is no unique definition among investors of what green investing entails. However, for the
purpose of this paper, „green‟ investments refer broadly to low carbon and climate resilient investments
made in companies, projects and financial instruments that operate primarily in the renewable energy,
clean technology, environmental technology or sustainability related markets as well as those investments
that are climate change specific.
A broad-based transformation of Ontario’s power system is well underway, revolutionizing the way
electricity is generated, delivered, managed and even consumed in Ontario. Many of the changes
at play are more profound and occurring faster than expected. The increasing investment in new
renewable generation is accompanied by the expansion and enhancement of the transmission and
distribution systems, the retirement of Ontario’s coal generating fleet, and the development of a
‘smart grid’ for Ontario.
The foundation for these medium- and long-term initiatives consists of: fostering innovation
through promoting entrepreneurship, investing in smart infrastructure, encouraging R&D, green
investment, upgrading the skills of workers, steering market actors towards innovation-related
investments, and accelerating activities for which barriers may have been too high otherwise.
The ARRA is projected to create or retain 3.5 million jobs as of the fourth quarter of
These jobs are projected to be in all major industries in the economy. The ARRA also
spurs business investment, which is a key source of long-run growth, through loan guarantee
programs and important support for new areas with excellent potential. Investments in
renewable energy, the smart grid, and health information technology are projected to create
many new job opportunities in a diverse set of industries spanning the service and manufacturing
Non-housing business fixed investment is also expected to be an important source of
growth over the next decade. Higher private saving, lower budget deficits, and lower demand for
new homes will all tend to put downward pressure on real interest rates, and so tend to increase
business investment. The many investment opportunities in areas such as renewable energy, the
smart grid, and energy-saving technologies will also promote higher investment.
To their credit, some highway advocates support tolling of added capacity to recover
costs and control congestion, but this only addresses two of the external costs of induced
travel. Only if all the pricing reforms described above are fully implemented can roadway
expansion be justified and efficient.
Critics sometimes point out that public transit requires more public subsidy per
passenger-mile than automobile travel, but this comparison is unfair (“Transit
Evaluation,” VTPI 2009). About half of transit subsidies are intended to provide basic
mobility (service at times and locations with low demand, and special services for people
with disabilities), which requires large subsidy per passenger-mile. Transit operates on
major urban corridors where any form of transport is costly to provide.
Ensuring that children have comprehensive and continuous health insurance coverage is good not
only for a child’s health and quality of life in the short-term, but also a smart investment for the
long-term. On average, child health coverage is exponentially less expensive than adult coverage.
Studies have demonstrated that the health care costs of children are about one-tenth the health
care costs of adults.8 9 Targeted health interventions, such as providing comprehensive asthma
care to children, have the potential to reduce public health care costs in short and long term, i.e.
The Annual Report 2006 highlights UNICEF's work in 155 countries, areas and territories. It summarizes some of the important results achieved for children and highlights what still needs to be done. The report demonstrates that the road to achieving the Millennium Development Goals is strewn with obstacles, but steadfast determination, strong partnerships, smart investment and precise accountability carve out impressive inroads and models for sustainable development.
