Risks covered by MECIB

MECIB’s main objectives are to develop and promote exports from Malaysia by providing and giving insurance cover against some risks that relate to international trade and also giving guarantee in support of Malaysian exports. The following are risks that are covered by their insurance policies either short term, medium term or long term.
1. Commercial risks: Here, there is insolvency of the buyer and also the failure of the buyer to pay within a specific period of time i.e. 6 months after the due date for the goods that are delivered to and accepted by him/her. In more details, they cover the risk of the buyer being unwilling to accept or pay for the goods which have already been shipped or delivered which isn’t due to the quality dispute.

2. Non-commercial risks: Under this category, there is economic risk, political risk and other unforeseeable events. Starting with economic risk, the risks that are covered include blockage or delay in the transfer of payments to Malaysia and also the cancellation or not renewing the valid import and export licenses. Imposition of import restrictions in the country of the buyer after the goods have been delivered or shipped is also covered under the economic risk.

With unforeseeable events, it means any causes of loss happening or occurring outside Malaysia which are beyond either the buyer or exporter’s control.

Political risks too are covered. Here there is war between Malaysia and the buyer’s country, revolutions and other kinds of disturbances for example riots in the country of the buyer. There is protection of losses that may arise from the inability to convert for example the profits, dividends and loan repayments that are received in the local currency because of delays, any changes in the law and regulations and also lack of foreign exchange. MECIB also protects losses that can arise…...

Covered Call Options

...sold on the world market for a profit. Some countries even have an immediate market for their minerals like oil and gold. Almost all LDCs and a number of the other countries that needed bail out funds, have these resources that can be sold for profit. However in a situation where quick funds are needed, selling these resources would take a considerably long period of time which is not available at that instance. This can be remedied by the sell of long term covered call options on the resources of the different countries that need the funds. An options strategy is when an investor holds a long position (owns the asset: in our case mineral) in an asset and writes (sells) call options on that same asset in an attempt to generate increased income from the asset. This strategy is often employed when an investor has a short-term neutral view on the asset and for this reason holds the asset long and simultaneously have a short position via the option to generate income from the option premium.By selling Long term covered call options, the country makes money that not only can be used to fund bailouts but can also be used for other budgetary expenditures. To expand on this proposal let us apply it to the recent bailout received the government of Cyprus to protect its banking sector. The Cypriot government needed to raise over 10 billion euros in order to receive a larger bailout from the Eurozone, Cyprus was able to raise the 10 billion with a couple of not so popular......

...Risk interaction for a stockbroker firm Overview The following system depicts the interaction of the components of a stockbroker firm in perspective of its revenues, profits, and outlook for economical development, all of them being influenced by the element of risk (depicted in the system by volatility and risk of costumer willing to take). The main product to be analyzed in our system interaction is stocks which is the main source of profit for a stockbroker firm. The selling of this product to different costumers around the world generates fees every time a stock or a security is traded at stockbroker firm. The more trading the firm has the higher the revenues of the firm as fees are generated every time there is a customer trading stocks. Interaction and components The first loop labeled as loop A consist of the primary function system of the stockbroker firm. The components and its functions create a reinforced loop as all its components reinforce the next one to bring a higher or lower outcome. For instance, the more stock selling the stockbroker firm deals with, the more fees it is able to generate which consequently gives higher revenues and profits to the firm. When a company has a good track record of revenues and profits it seeks to make it grow and have a bigger market share. This consequently gives a better reputation of the firm and finally an increase in the selling of its product which reinforces the loop. It is important to note that if the outlook is......

The HR department helps and guides an organization to treat employees fairly as such complying with relevant laws and avoiding costly slip ups. A typical example is the Page 16 of 26 racial lawsuit which cost Texaco $176million, Shoney’s $132million and Coca-Cola $192 million. It is true that no matter how effective an organization’s HR management strategy is, some employees will still feel they are Victims of discrimination but the HR department by being familiar with employment laws can reduce the possibilities of their organization facing discrimination charges. So it is important that HR departments are familiar with these laws and communicates the importance and applicability to people involved in personnel decision......

...2 Question 1. Imagine you are Bill. How would you explain to Mary the relationship between risk and return of Individual Stocks? A portfolio’s risk consists of systematic risk and unsystematic risk. The unsystematic risk can be virtually eliminated thorugh the effects of diversification. It is the systematic risk that causes investors to require a risk premium. Systematic risk reflects market-wide factors such as the country's rate of economic growth, corporate tax rates, interest rates etc. Since these market-wide factors generally cause returns to move in the same direction they cannot cancel out. Therefore, systematic risk remains present in all portfolios. Some investments will be more sensitive to market factors than others and will therefore have a higher systematic risk. Empirical theory suggests a positive correlation between risk and return. It holds true because a higher risk taken by an investor is translated to into a higher risk premium i.e. Market return less the risk free rate. Therefore, it can be concluded that an investor would prefer higher returns for an investment that has higher risk attached to it compared to other similar securities. Question 2. Mary has no idea what beta means and how it is related to the required return of the stocks. Explain how would you help her understand these concepts? Beta is an index of systematic risk. It measures the risk of a particular security relative to the market portfolio. If a stock has a beta of 2, then......

Covered Court Project Proposal

...Public Finance Project Proposal (Construction of Multi-Purpose Covered Court with Stage Extension in N. Aboboto Mem. School, Brgy. Sapul, Calapan City) Prepared by: Abrigo, Nina Kristel E. Garcia, Glecel Martija, Ernie Atienza, Sheryl Ace Submitted to: Miss Michelle Luzon I. INTRODUCTION Covered courts serve the community a standard of care where people of all ages and skill levels can enjoy a variety of activities and amenities aimed at enhancing learning and enjoyment. In school, lack of facility like this causes few physical activities that contribute to an increased rate of obesity, lowered levels of wellbeing and reduced general enjoyment of the experience at school. In West Vancouver, Canada, Michelle LaBounty, head of Ecole Cedardale School, proposed a paved and partially fenced covered sports court to accommodate basketball, ball hockey, futsol, 4 square and hopscotch in January 2015. The school has no facility of this kind either on the Cedardale playground or within the immediate proximity of the school.  Play choices are relatively limited and intermediate students regularly request opportunities to exercise their recess periods in the gymnasium.  This poses complications with regards to adequate supervision and limits the frequency and number of students/grades that can participate cooperatively. Cedardale has seen a growth in population in the past few years, not only because it is now a full K-7 school, but due to increased community......

...CEO Toolkit n GLOBAL CEO n January 2003 A CEO’s guide to value at risk models Ravi Madapati* Value at Risk (VaR) models are being used extensively in the world of risk management. VaR provides an upper bound on the potential loss due to adverse market fluctuations. VaR can be used to estimate risk in the case of various financial instruments including bonds, equities and derivatives. S ince the past decade or so no other tool in financial risk management has been heard about as much as Value at Risk (VaR) modeling. VaR has rapidly become the industry standard for measuring and reporting market risk in trading portfolios of banks and other trading institutions. VaR provides an upper bound on the potential loss due to adverse market fluctuations. Any VaR number has to specify which portfolio is being considered (e.g., Equity derivatives book), the confidence level (e.g., 97.5%) and the holding period (e.g., 10 days). VaR objectively tries to combine the sensitivity of the portfolio to market changes and the probability of a given market change. VaR has been adopted by the Basel Committee to set the standard for the minimum amount of capital to be held against the market risks. VaR can be used to estimate risk in the case of various financial instruments including bonds, equities and derivatives. VaR can be used to communicate risk and to control risk by setting limits for frontline traders and operating managers. Pros and cons of using......

...SECTION 4: ASSESSING RISK Risk assessment and management is one of the highest priorities for any organization to safeguard its properties and assets. In a turbulent state, all information and security vulnerabilities should be in a conversant to many regulations. Selected and tested methodologies have been defined and framed to mitigate the risk-assessment to many organizations. The frameworks have been set to help and guide security and risk. One of the methodologies is: Factor Analysis of Information Risk, abbreviated as (FAIR). FAIR is a methodology for understanding, analyzing and measuring information risk. Information policy and security practices have been inadequate available to aid in effectively managing information risk. For the little available information clues, managers and system owners have found it hard to make effective and well-informed decisions to safeguard their systems against such risks and uncertainties as they may happen. FAIR is elevated to address security practice weaknesses. The major aim of this methodology is to allow organizations contribute effort and mitigate the various risk as they may happen. In one accord risk is assessed and measures be taken to counter the menace. The method ensures the organizational risk is defended and or challenge risk determined by use of advanced analysis techniques and also understand how time and resources such as money will impact the organization's security profile in general. The Methodology works with...

...Summary Chevron commits huge resources to tackle environmental risks; this report studies the viability of doing so. We find that (1) it is using a right combination of internal and external tools to increase workers’ awareness, diversify environmental risks and mitigate moral hazard at the same time; and (2) the Decision Making (“DEMA”) system is valuable to the company in providing a systematic framework to quantify environmental risks. Introduction Chevron operates in the business of petroleum and natural gas exploration, production, refining and marketing, and as such faces huge environmental risks such as oil spills and exhaust emissions. Throughout the years Chevron has honoured its claim in “Protecting People and the Environment” by committing a higher proportion of revenues to environmental spending than its competitors. However, environmental risks and the benefits of managing them are by nature hard to be quantified, while the costs are obvious and substantial. This report studies the viability of Chevron’s investments in two steps. First, it examines the tools Chevron uses to manage environmental risks, and explains why they are different from those used to manage other risks. Second, the report will analyse the pros and cons of the novel DEMA system, an attempt by Chevron to systematically quantify environmental risks. What tools is Chevron currently using to manage environmental business risk? We have categorized the tools currently adopted by Chevron as...
