Performance of Property Unit Trusts and Property Loan Stocks: Property Investment Trusts - comparison of performance
The book compares the performance of Property Investment Trusts and Property Loan Stock companies which have similar investment instruments but have different restrictions on borrowing. This book is highly relevant in understanding the properties of risk versus return when you considering different debt structures of Property Investments Trusts. The book also applied Value at Risks concepts in the analysis of the data. The study population in the book was based on the Property Unit Trusts and Property Loan Stock companies listed on the JSE Securities Exchange over the period 1990 to 2004. The returns were measured and both nominal and risk-adjusted returns (using Sharpe measure) were subjected to the NCSS statistical program analysis to determine whether there were significant differences in the returns. The Value at Risk analysis clearly indicates that Property Unit Trusts, with low gearing, have better risk-sharing characteristics than Property Loan Stock companies with no restrictions on gearing.

Whilst our lovely rural market community is under the watchful eye of the local district council's surveillance unit, the real questionable activities - at local district council headquarters - go on unobserved, unaccountable - •The local district council exploits a legal loophole to escape the responsibility for maintaining local recreational areas, thereby placing a crippling & unethical financial burden on the town council of ?30,000 each year. •Coincidentally, the chief executive of the local district council decides to award himself a ?30,000 a year pay-rise, whilst other staff continue their 2 year fight for a fair job & salary evaluation. •Several million pounds of local taxpayer’s money is lost, and likely unrecoverable, after irresponsible, unguaranteed, investments - by the local district council - in unregulated foreign concerns become worthless. So, who watches the watchers..? *All incidents mentioned have been fully covered by the local independant press, I suggest that if you want more detail or wish to read the original articles that you visit their web archives and draw your own conclusions. I am merely restating information already in the public domain, and have withheld names and other such specific details that you should easily be able to find should you wish to do so.
Who really trusts banks anyway? Why do so many of them have the word Trust in their names?

Closed-End Funds, Exchange-Traded Funds, and Hedge Funds: Origins, Functions, and Literature (Innovations in Financial Markets and Institutions)
"Closed-End Funds, Exchange-Traded Funds, and Hedge Funds: Origins, Functions, and Literature is a concise and valuable book that will be of interest to individual investors, financial professionals, and academic researchers, alike. It provides a brief history and institutional discussion of these investment companies and also presents a summary of the research on these funds. Investment practitioners will find the book useful as a reference and as a quick refresher on the current state of knowledge regarding each fund type. Equally important, it provides academic researchers with an accurate institutional framework within which to cast their theoretical models, and a point of departure for expanding the empirical analysis for improving our understanding of these funds. All-in-all, this is a very valuable book; I highly recommend it." (John J. Jackson, Professor of Economics, Auburn University) "Professors Anderson, Born, and Schnusenberg provide a valuable service in this monograph. The practical significance of closed-end funds, exchange-traded funds, and hedge funds has increased dramatically in recent years, but all too many academics and investors know little about them. This text presents a carefully-focused and understandable description of these investment vehicles, highlighting the big, unresolved questions, while also including careful and fair accounts of the state of the literature. Nothing extraneous clutters the presentation, but, more importantly, nothing necessary is left out. Highly recommended." (T. Randolph Beard, Professor of Economics and Public Policy, Auburn University) "This book is both useful as a reference book and as an additive, educational overview of ETFs and hedge funds, as well as CEFs. In today’s tumultuous markets, much reference is made to these subjects without a clear understanding of the vehicles, their structure and their history. This is a very timely publication and should be viewed as an important read. The book contains definitive explanations and also includes an excellent summary of past works in this area. Readable, informative and highly useful as a reference source." (Kathleen A. Wayner, President and CEO, Bowling Portfolio Management)
