Bachelor Thesis from the year 2011 in the subject Business economics - Miscellaneous, grade: 1,3, Cologne University of Applied Sciences, course: Kooperationsstudiengang mit der FOM Hochschule für Ökonomie & Management, language: English, abstract: The goal of this dissertation is to give the reader a fundamental understanding of the various risks for games publishers’ online business by identifying and examining generally affecting e-commerce risks as well as risks specific to the games industry environment. Furthermore, the author will list possible solutions to reduce negative impacts caused by these risks. In the last decade, e-commerce transactions like the one described above became a routine. Especially in more sophisticated countries with broadband Internet access, consumers at all age levels utilize ist capabilities to purchase products online. The majority of these transactions are business-to-consumer. During the last five to ten years, publishers of entertainment software have also targeted the Internet as a new distribution channel. Approaching gamers directly through websites or platform marketplaces is a faster and more profitable way of generating revenue than traditional retailing. Transaction costs are decreased, marketing time is reduced, and direct communication with communities, which is typical for this line of business, is improved. Certainly there are not only advantages associated with online distribution of video games, and we will later discuss whether cost savings really occur. Several aspects of risk need to be considered before making a decision. It is a question about the strategic orientation of any company operating in the given industry.

All investments carry with them some degree of risk. In the financial world, individuals, professional money managers, financial institutions, and many others encounter and must deal with risk. Risk management is a process of determining what risks exist in an investment and then handling those risks in the best-suited way. This is important because it can reduce or augment risk depending on the goals of investors and portfolio managers. The main purpose of Investment Risk Management is to provide an overview of developments in risk management and a synthesis of research involving these developments. The book examines ways to alter exposures through measuring and managing those exposures and provides an understanding of the latest strategies and trends within risk management. The scope of the coverage is broad and encompasses the most important aspects of investment risk management. Its 30 chapters are organized into six sections: (1) foundations of risk management, (2) types of risk, (3) quantitative assessment of risk, (4) risk and risk classes, (5) hedging risk and (6) going forward. The book should be of particular interest to sophisticated practitioners, investors, academics, and graduate finance students. Investment Risk Management provides a fresh look at this intriguing but complex subject.

Warum wir nur denen vertrauen sollten, die etwas zu verlieren haben Stehen wir für die Risiken ein, die wir verursachen? Zu viele der Menschen, die auf der Welt Macht und Einfluss haben, so Nassim Nicholas Taleb, müssen nicht wirklich den Kopf hinhalten für das, was sie tun und veranlassen. Intellektuelle, Journalisten, Bürokraten, Banker, ihnen vor allem wirft er vor, kein »Skin in the Game« zu haben. Weil sie den Preis nicht bezahlen müssen, wenn sie irren, fällen sie schlechte Entscheidungen. Taleb zeigt anhand vieler Beispiele, wie »Skin in the Game«, ein fundamentales Konzept des Risikomanagements, auf alle Bereiche unseres Lebens übertragen werden kann. Sein neues Buch, so provozierend und bahnbrechend wie »Der Schwarze Schwan«, fordert uns heraus, alles, was wir über Risiko und Verantwortung in Politik, Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft zu wissen glauben, neu zu denken.

Banking today is not what it was some years back. The basic purpose for which banks came into being was deposit mobilization and credit dispensation, which in a short form can be called 3-6-3 banking. It is not the same any more as the major agenda of the banks today is to multiply profits through an array of services like insurance, mutual fund, wealth management etc. to customers. The growth of financial markets, blurring of product boundaries, new network technologies have brought in enormous opportunities in the banking sector. The key to success is knowledge on the subject and updation of the events in the sector. Living up to the aspirations and requirements of the industry, many Indian Universities have introduced Banking as a subject in the curriculum of management courses at the undergraduate and Postgraduate levels. Business Schools and institutes of academic excellence have evolved exclusive courses on Banking to tap the potential in the field. This book meets the requirements of the subject in all its angles and intends to serve the requirements of management students who would like to make a career in banking and for those in pursuit of promotional avenues within the bank.

This book is a guide to asset and risk management from a practical point of view. It is centered around two questions triggered by the global events on the stock markets since the middle of the last decade: - Why do crashes happen when in theory they should not? - How do investors deal with such crises in terms of their risk measurement and management and as a consequence, what are the implications for the chosen investment strategies? The book presents and discusses two different approaches to finance and investing, i.e., modern portfolio theory and behavioral finance, and provides an overview of stock market anomalies and historical crashes. It is intended to serve as a comprehensive introduction to asset and risk management for bachelor’s and master’s students in this field as well as for young professionals in the asset management industry. A key part of this book is the exercises to further demonstrate the concepts presented with examples and a step-by-step business case. An Excel file with the calculations and solutions for all 17 examples as well as all business case calculations can be downloaded at extras.springer.com.

Agent-based modeling/simulation is an emerging field that uses bottom-up and experimental analysis in the social sciences. Selected research from that presented at the Third International Workshop on Agent-Based Approaches in Economic and Social Complex Systems 2004, held in May 2004 in Kyoto, Japan, is included in this book. The aim of the workshop was to employ the bottom-up approach to social and economic problems by modeling, simulation, and analysis using a software agent. This research area is an emerging interdisciplinary field among the social sciences and computer science, attracting broad attention because it introduces a simulation-based experimental approach to problems that are becoming increasingly complex in an era of globalization and innovation in information technology. The state-of-the-art research and findings presented in this book will be indispensable tools for anyone involved in this rapidly growing discipline.
