  • Companies face risks every day, they are part of normal business life. There are many risks — both threats and opportunities — which may impact on a company‘s resources, projects and profitability. Risk means different things to different businesses and organizations. Undoubtedly, the risk represents both a potential threat and potential opportunity for businesses. Every business and decision involves a certain amount of risk. Risk might cause a loss to a company. This does not mean, however, that businesses cannot take risks.

  • Moreover, even if it were established that options increased risk taking, it is not clear whether such an outcome would be desirable or undesirable from the perspective of the shareholders. Risk-averse managers, who hold disproportionate amounts of their financial and human capital in the companies they manage, are likely to take fewer risks than are optimal. This is an agency problem that is likely magnified in companies where top executives enjoy substantial rents from their positions, and have strong incentives not to take risky actions that may get them removed from their positions.

  • The impact of the crisis further increases the market failure – also driven by increased risk aversion on the supply side of microfinance - and underlines the need for public support for this emerging sector in Europe. In addition to the fundamental structural problems of the microfinance sector in Europe, public intervention has largely been justified and substantiated with positive externalities, i.e. that social and financial inclusion generates attractive economic and social returns.

  • CAPM: Assumptions • Investors are risk-averse individuals who maximize the expected utility of their wealth • Investors are price takers and they have homogeneous expectations about asset returns that have a joint normal distribution (thus market portfolio is efficient) • There exists a risk-free asset such that investors may borrow or lend unlimited amount at a risk-free rate. • The quantities of assets are fixed. Also all assets are marketable and perfectly divisible. • Asset markets are frictionless. Information is costless and simultaneously available to all investors.

  • Tax compliance researchers begin with the supposition that people compare the marginal benefit of noncompliance (reduced tax payments, for example) with the expected marginal costs, which account for both the likelihood of punishment and its severity. That perspective provides an approach for evaluating the effective penalties uninsured people could anticipate under an individual health mandate.

  • Real and perceived quality gaps in public coverage and delivery systems serve as an impetus for PHI purchases in some countries. Waiting times, increasing demand for choice, and perceptions of inadequacy of public systems are leading motivations in Ireland, Australia, Denmark, and the United Kingdom. Where public cover is not provided, primary PHI policies are purchased mainly to minimise the financial risks associated with illness. Finally, the diversity in consumer attitudes and preferences is difficult to compare across countries.

  • Many of the early compliance models assumed that audits were expensive but that penalties could be imposed at low cost to the enforcing agency once an error had been detected. It is not surprising that those models typically showed that, subject to a fixed-budget constraint, the combination of high penalties and low audit rates was socially optimal (McCubbin, 2004). Those results are sensitive to several underlying assumptions. First, feelings about risk vary from one group to another; younger people, for example, could be less risk-averse than older people are.

  • In addition McQueen and Vorkink (2004) are able to reproduce GARCH volatility using a preference-based model with time-varying sensitivity to news. In a related paper, Vanden (2005) develops a model where the representative agent exhibits a utility function with several risk aversion regimes, which in equilibrium leads to volatility regimes and volatility clustering.

  • We find that trusting individuals are significantly more likely to buy stocks and risky assets and, conditional on investing in stock, they invest a larger share of their wealth in it. This effect is economically very important: trusting others increases the probability of buying stock by 50% of the average sample probability and raises the share invested in stock by 3.4 percentage points (15.5% of the sample mean). These results are robust to controlling for differences in risk aversion and ambiguity aversion.

  • This book examines women’s financial activity from the early days of the stock market in eighteenth-century England and the South Sea Bubble to the mid twentieth century. The essays demonstrate how many women managed their own finances despite legal and social restrictions and show that women were neither helpless, incompetent and risk-averse, nor were they unduly cautious and conservative. Rather, many women learnt about money and made themselves effective and engaged managers of the funds at their disposal....

  • Second, information should be thought of as better if it reduces the uncertainty surrounding some future cost or benefit. For instance, future liabilities are inherently uncertain. Information that can narrow the variance on estimates of those uncertain liabilities should be considered better information. Reduced variance is particularly valuable when decision-makers are risk-averse, since a reduction in variance alone can lead to different decisions when there is risk aversion.

  • Firms obviously choose to insure risk-averse workers when the premium is fair. They may choose to do so even if the premium is slightly higher than the expected cost. Nevertheless, if a firm’s expected health cost is significantly lower than the premium, it may choose not to offer insurance to workers. As we have just observed, small firms have higher variances in health costs. Hence, relative to large firms, more small firms will have expected costs that are significantly below the offered premium, and they choose not to offer insurance to workers.

  • Stability Bonds would make the euro-area financial system more resilient to future adverse shocks and so reinforce financial stability. Stability Bonds would provide all participating Member States with more secure access to refinancing, preventing a sudden loss of market access due to unwarranted risk aversion and/or herd behaviour among investors. Accordingly, Stability Bonds would help to smooth market volatility and reduce or eliminate the need for costly support and rescue measures for Member States temporarily excluded from market financing.

  • Consider an investor in country j deciding whether to purchase stocks and/or bonds in a foreign country i1. The investor compares the expected return on an investment in country i1 to the expected return in country j as well as the expected return in country i2. How does an investor decide where to invest? One set of scholarship explicitly assumes that investors are risk averse and use the international asset pricing model (ICAPM) to understand international portfolio diversification.

  • Keynes’s liquidity preference theory touched on the maturity transformation issue. He argued that the private sector’s willingness to assume liquidity and maturity risks is not well-anchored in fundamentals. Instead it is strongly influenced by subjective factors. Hence his policy prescription was that government debt issuance should “accommodate the preferences of the public for different maturities”. It was, he argued, socially desirable that risk-averse investors should be offered some minimum, safe return on their capital.
