, , Comment Closed

By Andreas Bertl

Die Entwicklungen der letzten Jahre zeigen deutlich, dass der klassische Bankkredit zur Finanzierung vieler Unternehmen nicht mehr ausreicht. Eine interessante, aber außerhalb des Bankensektors noch wenig bekannte substitute sind Asset subsidized Securities.

Andreas Bertl beschreibt das Finanzierungsinstrument Asset subsidized Securities in seiner Entstehung und heutigen Struktur und zeigt sowohl Chancen wie auch Risiken auf. Anhand der US-amerikanischen Bankengeschichte und der Schuldenkrise der dritten Welt wird deutlich, dass Asset subsidized Securities ursprünglich vor allem zur Liquiditätsbeschaffung in Krisenfällen eingesetzt wurden. Der Autor bietet zunächst eine Einführung in die Materie, die keine mathematischen Vorkenntnisse erfordert, und präsentiert anschließend Erklärungsversuche aus finanzierungstheoretischer Sicht sowie Vorschläge zur Verbesserung der bisher vorliegenden Bewertungsansätze.

In each one mar­ ket we derive new valuation versions to cost chosen monetary tools in continuous-time. the choice criterium for selecting a continuous-time version­ ing framework is the richness of the stochastic concept to be had for non-stop­ time strategies with Merton's pioneering contributions to monetary economics, amassed in Merton (1992). The continuous-time framework, reviewed and as­ sessed via Sundaresan (2000), permits us to acquire analytical pricing formulae that might be unavailable in a discrete time atmosphere. besides the fact that, on the time of imposing the derived theoretical pricing versions on marketplace information, that's unavoidably sampled at discrete time durations, we paintings with so-called special discrete time equivalents a los angeles Bergstrom (1984). We express tips on how to very easily paintings inside astate house framework which we derive in a common surroundings as weIl as explicitly for every of the 3 applications.
