Description for case is given below :
In May 1998, the director of Research at Zeus Asset Management is reflecting on the current performance evaluation of Zeus’s mutual funds (which include an equity fund, a bond fund, a balanced fund, and an international fund) and ways to improve the measurement of performance. Zeus has become increasingly aware that absolute returns, or relative returns (returns relative to a benchmark), will not suffice as a measurement of performance and that a measurement (or a series of measurements) of risk-adjusted performance must be added. Performance evaluation is key to structuring compensation and incentive schemes in general, as well as strategic planning for the company’s future. Given Zeus’s relatively risk-averse clientele, the “correct” measurement of risk is imperative. Students are asked to compute several measures of risk-adjusted performance. Familiarity with running regression models in Excel is required; alternatively, the case can be used to pursue that objective. The case comes with an Excel spreadsheet containing the relevant data (time series of returns [net of risk-free rate] of three mutual funds and corresponding benchmark indices).

Authors :           Richard B. Evans, Michael Mills
Source :             Darden School of Business
Case ID :           UV2560
Discipline :        Finance
Case Length :    12 pages
Solution Sample availability : YES
Plagiarism : NO (100% Original work)
Description for case is given below :
This case examines the importance of liquidity to financial markets, using the dramatic volatility of mutual fund flows in 2008 as an example. While the case is targeted to MBA students in an investments or portfolio management course, it is also appropriate for an advanced undergraduate course. It is written from the perspective of a fund manager who has experienced significant redemptions in 2008 and is considering whether or not to use ReFlow Management LLC’s “liquidity provision” service. The case requires students to examine the nature and magnitude of mutual fund trading costs, how fund flows may induce additional trading and how ReFlow’s innovative service attempts to resolve these issues. Through this analysis, students will better understand what is meant by the term “liquidity” and how liquidity, or a lack thereof, can negatively impact portfolio performance.

Case ID :           UV6686
Discipline :        Finance
Case Length :    15 pages
Solution Sample availability : YES
Plagiarism : NO (100% Original work)
Description for case is given below :
In early January 2008, a senior VP with LAAMCO, a fund of hedge funds known for alternative investments, was conducting due diligence on an equity market-neutral hedge fund. The hedge fund used an option strategy known as a collar (also known as a bull spread or split-strike conversion). The track record of the hedge fund had been stellar. The fund’s performance had not only beaten that of the S&P 500 Index over the same period but had done so with much lower monthly return volatility. As part of the due diligence, it was necessary to backtest the collar strategy and try to quantify how much value the manager, BLM Investment Securities, LLC, (BLM) had added. The case is a disguised representation of an actual hedge fund-the true identity of BLM is revealed to students at the end of the case discussion.

Description for case is given below :
In November 2013, the senior manager of Human Resources at Attock Refinery Limited, headquartered in Morgah Rawalpindi, Pakistan, is considering whether to amend the current performance appraisal system to bring it in line with the goal of creating a performance-oriented culture in the company, which refines 70 per cent of the country’s crude oil. Significant changes had been made over the last 14 years, but the current performance management system is still not distinguishing between different categories of performers, and employees continue to complain that everyone gets more or less the same ratings and pay increments regardless of the amount or quality of the work they do. Should the weights for objective setting and competencies in the appraisal forms be adjusted? Should competencies be better defined and training sessions held on how to objectively evaluate them? Should there be more direction at all levels in setting specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and timely objectives? Considering the views of employees and managers in all departments, he must decide what, if any, changes should be made to promote the desired company culture.

Description for case is given below :
On November 30, 2007, the chief executive officer (CEO) of Goodwin Wealth Management (Goodwin), decided to hire a consultant to make an assessment of his current situation. Recently, several firms had expressed interest in acquiring Goodwin. The CEO knew he would have to decide whether to consider these offers or not very soon in order to avoid a hostile bidding situation. If the CEO did decide to consider an acquisition, he would have to act quickly in order to take advantage of the current stock’s high price. Further complicating the decision was the fact that Goodwin had been built by the CEO’s father, George, who would try to influence the decision-making process. The CEO wanted to do what was best for the company while protecting his family’s reputation. He awaited the advice from the consultant.
