Thoughts about the exam? Are Bonus points possible for elaborate answers for example?
View 4 more comments
can you get like negative points when your answer is correct but you mention additional points which are wrong?
no negative marking, dont worry
Is there a grading scheme how many points you need for which grade? Just to have an idea :-)
Since you need 22/40 to pass (5.5) I think it's just points/40. didn't see anything about it in the course manual
I am looking for the more detailed ones

thanks!! :)
Btw for your Tirole summary I think that you forgot the one from page 20 to 29 (session 5)?
In the article I think they mentioned that the targeted companies have more takeover defenses instead of low takeover defenses.
Thats right

Thanks ??
You are welcome
correct me if I'm wrong, I thought noise would also result in using non-financial metrics...?
Think A. Lipstick is correct Exogenous noise is the level of precision with which the performance measure provides information about the manager’s actions. If there is more noise, it means that there is more uncertainty about how much influence the manager has on the performance measure with the actions the manager takes. (1p) The authors expect that the more exogenous noise there is in financial performance measures, the more weight is placed on non-financial performance measures.

Ahhh perfect! Thanks for clearing that up!

Hi! Great job :) Are you going to post the preparations for tutorial 5 and 8 as well?

so great, thanks!! is this complete enough to pass the exam?
This is a summary of all the exam required literature, so in that sense it shoul be enough to pass, but I cannot promise you a save pass, that is up to you ;) however, I can tell you that to the extent of my abilities I think these are the key points they want you to know, and this is what i will be studying from ? Please do keep in mind, they will probably ask insight-questions for which this is only background info, and you need to do the magic yourself
I think you meant systemic risk there :)

Hey! Thanks very much for your summaries. Do you plan doing a concise summary of all articles, as you did for some courses? That'd be really useful!

You should maybe try and change the font because this one makes it quite hard to read :)
Oh, I really like this font :( If you don't like it, you can change it yourself. It is as easy as 1 2 3.

its systemic risk and not systematic. there is a difference.
typo, sorry
so used to typing 'systematic'
Is there a complete summary somewhere to prepare for the exam?
Why? Isn't it harder to acquire a significant stake of a company if it has more takeover defences and high institutional ownership?
Can you explain what is meant by this sentence?

How do hedge funds contribute to corporate governance?
active engagement
Isn't this "systemic" risk instead of "systematic"?
No!! Systematic risk was finance, forget about it. SYSTEMIC RISK = when an organizations's bankruptcy or downfall could set off a chain reaction throughout the economy. (Think financial crisis 2008) This is the reasoning behind the US government bailing out big companies that go bankrupt. Managers can take this for granted and thus leads to risk seeking behavior (MORAL HAZARD) Hope it helps.
that's what I said ;) cause its written wrong in this summary
What is the difference between management-level risk and operational risk? Both are within the organisation right?
View 2 more comments
I think management-level risk results from the firm's ACTIONS e.g. local environmental damage, whereas operational risk occurs within the firm e.g. theft, fire or accidents that can always happen without being caused by the decisions of the business.
Yes, makes sense! Thanks :)
What is the difference between shareholder engagement and activism?
Engagement is more about constructive private dialogue and long-term involvement than for example only public proxy proposals to pressure the target firm
Also, activism mostly involves acquiring (or having acquired) a stake in the firm to influence decisions. Engagement does not, they engage in private dialogue to get cooperation from management (threatening with selling shares, handing in proposals for inclusion in the proxy material are all last resorts.)
