This book brings the reader through the strategies and thought processes used by professional value investors, using clear language. It presents the concepts, implementation and benefits of value investing and includes an expanded section on international value investing with "how-to" information on investing overseas. All data, statistics, anecdotes, illustrations and graphics have been updated and the final chapter explores structuring the portfolio for maximum returns....
Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) – investment by foreign companies in overseas subsidiaries or
joint ventures – has a traditional reliance on natural resource use and extraction,particularly
agriculture, mineral and fuel production. Though this balance has shifted in recent years, the poorest countries still receive a disproportionate amount of investment flows into their natural resource sectors.
CHAPTER 19 International Finance and Investments
Investing overseas adds an international flavor to your portfolio. You can invest in an Argentine telephone company, an Italian auto company, or a Japanese electronics company as easily as you can invest in a U.S. book publishing company.
Acquisition of stocks or shares of Korean corporations (Article 2.(1).4.(a) of the Foreign Investment
Promotion Act, FIPA)
◦A foreign national purchasing stocks or shares of a Korean corporation (including a Korean
corporation in the process of incorporation. Hereinafter the same shall apply) or a company run
by a Korean national, for the purpose of establishing a continuous economic relationship with and
participating in the management of the said Korean corporation or company.
Adjusted present value (APV) The net present value analysis of an asset if financed solely by equity (present value of un-levered cash flows), plus the present value of any financing decisions (levered cash flows). In other words, the various tax shields provided by the deductibility of interest and the benefits of other investment tax credits are calculated separately. This analysis is often used for highly leveraged transactions such as a leverage buy-out.
A Anybody can call themselves an accountant,
but a recognised qualification
generally guarantees proper training,
experience and professional standards.
5 Most accountants work in-house for
companies or organisations in the
private, public or voluntary sectors.
Those employed by accountancy firms,
on the other hand, usually specialise in
\0 very specific areas, such as auditing,
taxation, insolvency or forensic accounting.
Naturally, each specialism has
different training requirements.
The World Bank Institute was established by the World Bank in 1955 to train officials con-cerned with development planning, policymaking, investment analysis, and project imple-mentation in member developing countries. At present the substance of WBI’s work empha-sizes macroeconomic and sectoral policy analysis.
Internal Rate of Return (IRR) is the discount rate at which the Present
Value of future cash flows equals the initial capital invested (i.e. the discount rate at which the
Net Present Value of a series of cash flows equals 0) expressed as a percentage.
An IRR less than your targeted rate of return suggests you are paying too much for the property
to get your targeted rate of return
An IRR greater than your target rate of return suggests you could pay more for the property and
still get your targeted rate of return
These guidelines specify standard appraisal procedures for Japanese real
estate appraisers (the only profession that is licensed and registered by the
government by law. Hereinafter “Japanese Appraisers”) to appraise overseas
real estate for investment purposes.
As the globalization of the real estate market progresses, cross-border real
estate investment is gaining momentum. In addition, real estate investment
trust (REIT) markets have been set up in the past few years, and
international competition in real estate markets is heightening rapidly....
The development of the LPT market is slower compared to overseas REITs. For
example, while Malaysia launched its first LPT in 1989, REITs in Japan (introduced in 2000)
now amount to 12 listed JREITs with approximately US$11 billion market capitalization
(European Public Real Estate Association, 2004).
Despite its rapid development, market segmentation has been a distinctive feature of
China's stock market. On the SHSE and SZSE, two types of stocks, A shares and B
shares, are traded. Denominated in RMB, A shares are available exclusively to domestic
investors. From 1991 onwards, Chinese rms have been allowed to issue B shares to
foreign investors. These B shares are denominated in US dollars on the SHSE and in HK
dollars on the SZSE. Prior to February 2001, their trading was restricted exclusively to
overseas investors, including overseas Chinese residing in Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan....

The extent of foreign ownership has
shown a significant rise since the
publication of our previous findings in
2006 when overseas ownership of the
City’s office stock was estimated at 45%.
The further increase to 52% represents
the culmination of a consistently rising
trend which has seen foreign ownership
track 60% for the past eight years.
In 1980 overseas ownership of the City’s
property assets stood at a mere 8%
This chapter is devoted to a coverage of the various market entry strategies. Some of these techniques – such as exporting, licensing, and management contracts – are indirect in the sense that they require no investment overseas.

Abandonment option::The option of terminating an investment earlier than originally planned.
Companies (and individuals) can raise funds, invest money, buy material, produce goods and sell products and services overseas. With these increased opportunities comes addtional ricks. We need to know how to identify these risks and then how to control or remove them
Bonds pay fixed coupon (interest) payments at fixed intervals (usually every 6 months) and pay the par value at maturity.
Debentures - unsecured bonds.
Subordinated debentures - unsecured “junior” debt.
Mortgage bonds - secured bonds.
Zeros - bonds that pay only par value at maturity; no coupons.
Junk bonds - speculative or below-investment grade bonds; rated BB and below. High-yield bonds.
Eurobonds - bonds denominated in one currency and sold in another country. (Borrowing overseas).
example - suppose Disney decides to sell $1,000 bonds in France. These are U.S.
Even if an entity otherwise holds a “substantial
position” in swaps, it would not qualify as a major swap
participant if those positions are held for “hedging or
mitigating commercial risk,” among other exceptions.
However, the proposed deﬁ nition of “hedging or mitigat-
ing commercial risk” would exclude swap positions held
for speculative purposes.
21 As most private funds would
presumably be deemed to be holding their swap positions
for speculative purposes, that exclusion is unlikely to
apply to them.
The United States and other industrialized countries have committed to financial assistance for
environmental initiatives through several multilateral agreements (e.g., the Montreal Protocol
(1987), the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (1992), United Nations
Convention to Combat Desertification (1994), and the Copenhagen Accord (2009)).
