2. Capital Structures and Related Financing Issues

Part 2 begins with a review of capital structure decisions and how they are taken. This is followed by two chapters on international banking, one from a supplier’s and the other from a user’s viewpoint. This is followed by a chapter on debt finance and one on the raising of equity on the major money markets. The sixth chapter details the work of international lending agencies by whom much international business is financed, while a final chapter provides a guide to mergers and acquisitions across frontiers.

3. Finance and Credit

Part 3 looks at a number of issues that concern the financing of investments, exports and projects internationally. Finance for long term projects and for trade are the themes of the first two chapters, followed by one on the fast-growing topic of leasing. Chapters 3.4 and 3.5 deal with the insuring of capital risks and with credit control (both have useful addresses of sources for further information). Investment incentives available in the European Community are explained in the sixth chapter; a final chapter deals with compensation trading in its many aspects.

5. Risk and Risk Reduction

Part 5 is about risks — how to understand them and how to reduce them. The first five chapters are concerned with types of risk that a finance manager faces: currency, trading, balance sheet, exchange and political. These are followed by three chapters about instruments available for limiting risk and their uses — financial futures, swap financing and options and equity derivatives.

6. Taxation

Part 6 is about taxes and consists of three chapters by an international taxation consultant. The first covers the general subject of tax planning. The second looks at the various corporate taxation regimes in Europe, and the third at tax havens — concluding that, while the conventional view of tax havens is rapidly becoming obsolete, a sophisticated global review of corporate taxation discovers that many countries offer facilities for specialized objectives.

Blockchain-Effekte im Banking und im Wealth Management

Es steht fest, dass Blockchain-Technologie die Welt verändern wird. Weit weniger klar ist, wie genau dies passiert.

Einige dieser plausiblen Einsatzszenarien haben sogar das Potenzial für eine massive Disruption. Ein bereits existierendes Beispiel liefert der Initial Coin Offering-Markt: ICO statt IPO.
