  1. 1. Systemic risk and the market-to-book value of banks' equity

    D-uppsats, Handelshögskolan i Stockholm/Institutionen för finansiell ekonomi

    Författare :Florian Moritz Meier; Yuqing Meng; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Banks; Financial Crisis; Government Guarantees; Market-to-book Value; Risk;

    Sammanfattning : The goal of this thesis is to investigate whether market participants considered possible government guarantees when valuing banks' equity before the recent financial crisis and to what extent the market value of banks' equity is useful to estimate their exposure to systemic risk. Using a theoretical approach, we first present our argument that anticipated government guarantees in case of a systemic breakdown lead to financing costs of debt being independent from a bank's exposure to systemic risk.

    Författare :Jennifer Olsen; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Birth order; Human capital development; Cognition; Anthropometrics; Time use;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis investigates whether, and to what extent, children's birth orders impact their human capital development and time use throughout their childhood, using data from a longitudinal cohort study of children from Ethiopia, India, Peru and Vietnam. Comparing children across households reveals significant birth order effects favouring first-born children's human capital development in all four countries. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Development and Implementation of a Mass Balancing System for CubeSat Attitude Hardware-in-the-Loop Simulations

    Master-uppsats, Luleå tekniska universitet/Rymdteknik

    Författare :Guillermo Ledo López; [2019]
    Nyckelord :hil; hardware in the loop; simulation; satellite; simulator; platform; simulink; matlab; least squares; aocs; testing; attitude; dynamics; control;

    Sammanfattning : Spacecraft simulator platforms can simulate the microgravity environment of space on Earth, for the purposes of testing the Attitude and Orbit Control Subsystem of satellites. In order to do this, the satellite is mounted on a bench and the combined center of mass of this assembly is controlled by a series of moving masses. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Does Board Structure Impact IPO Underpricing? - Evidence from Sweden

    D-uppsats, Handelshögskolan i Stockholm/Institutionen för redovisning och finansiering; Handelshögskolan i Stockholm/Institutionen för finansiell ekonomi

    Författare :Alex Torgersson; Marc Bergmann; Maria Lindholm; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Initial Public Offerings; Underpricing; Corporate Governance; Board Characteristics; Board Independence;

    Sammanfattning : This paper applies a mixed research method and signaling theory to study the effect of certain board characteristics on IPO underpricing in Sweden. By examining 316 IPOs and 1,678 board members between 2014 and 2018 through various regressions, the analysis demonstrates that board size, board diversity, and education as a proxy for competence, are not correlated with underpricing.
