Assessing WACC; Case Study
This 8 page paper looks at a case study supplied by the student. An investment manager needs to estimate the cost of capital for Nike. The paper looks at why WACC is important, assessing the calculation that has been used in the case study using CAPM to estimate the cost of equity. After this new cost of capital figures are calculated with a different Capital Asset pricing Model (CAPM) calculation as well as using dividend discount model and capitalization rate to assess the cost of equity. The bibliography cites 4 sources.
Asset Allocation and Stochastic Optimization
This 36 page paper considers the use of stochastic modelling in the determination of asset allocation.

The looks at the different types of risk; undiversifiable and diversifiable risk, the role of beta within CAPM (capital asset pricing model), its limitations and the way it may be used. The second part of the paper looks at the time value of money, why discounting models are used to assess investments along with the use and comparison of net present value (NPV) and internal rate of return (IRR). The bibliography cites 5 sources.
