8. A Study of Legal Risk Associated with Financial Derivatives

Author: S.K.S. Yadava*, Manpreet Kaurb a Associate Professor, Department of Commerce, Meerut College, Meerut, U.P., India Email: sudhiryadavmeerut@gmail.com b Associate Professor, Deptt. of Management Studies, NGF College of Engineering & Technology, Palwal,(Pages: 96-106)

Abstract:

The study examines the concept and the elements of legal risk associated with financial derivatives. A model of legal risk has been developed based on the literature review. A survey conducted on institutional investors and financial institutions there is awareness of the legal risk associated with derivatives. The limitation is that they could correlate it with documentation only whereas legal risk is multi-dimensional in nature. It is this very nature of legal risk makes it difficult to identify its origin. The involvement of legal firm while entering into derivatives contract becomes important because of the multiple laws and multiple regulatory agencies governing the derivatives. But organisations shy away from involving legal firms for their services mainly because of incomplete understanding of the whole concept of legal risk in derivatives and the other reasons being the long procedure of documentation and the cost of legal services. The other significant reasons of not involving legal services are lack of legal expertise and the organisation may itself not be very particular about the laws. Regulation of derivatives does hold a major concern for the participants and even self-regulation by the trading organisation was suggested as a significant means of regulating the derivatives market. Organisations have failed to identify legal risk as one of major risks associated with derivatives. The major focus is on managing liquidity risk followed by operating risk. Hence, the organisations have failed to make a separate policy for legal risk management. The main legal risk faced by the organisations with reference to all derivatives is that the other party to the transaction will fail to pay. The study finally suggests a model for managing legal risk.
Keywords:Legal risk, derivatives, documentation, regulation.

Abstract:

In a democracy, participation of the people in the political process is an essential ingredient of the system. Similarly, Workers Participation in Management is an extension of this political process to work place relations. Keeping in view the democratic way of working, Worker Participation in Management has become a mandatory situation in developed and developing countries. The contents and structure of Workers Participation in Management is more important and is being debated in all industries to make it a ‘best fit’ as per their own working conditions. In other words, it can be said that it is a total involvement of people in the organisation to bring a democratic culture at the work place. Human resource development (HRD) is a subject of great relevance in a developing and most populous country like India. Of all the resources, the “Human Resource” is the most crucial and difficult to tackle and without these resources, the development of physical/financial/technical resources of the country is not possible. Thus, there is a need to mobilize the human resource- with the purpose to enable them to participate effectively in the task of nation- building. Mobilization would include the need to develop the human resource, skills, attitudes, aptitudes so that they can competently achieve the predetermined goals. HRD, thus constitutes a most complex and challenging problem. In an industrial society a state of harmony and goodwill between the management and its workers is usually an objective. This is not always possible where two groups exist, each with different ideologies, goals and interests may be in conflict. Conflict is, therefore, inevitable and could also prove healthy in the sense that it brings inherent problems to the fore. The cause of conflict, the mechanisms to resolve conflict, and the outcome of conflict, are all governed by each situation. In this research paper we studied the workers participation in management of Moser Baer I

Abstract:

It is an immutable fact that micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) have remained the bed rock of economic growth and development not just in the developing economies but in advanced economies as well. In Nigeria, this sector has remained pivotal and must be sustained for economic growth and survival. While the above facts cannot be over emphasized, it must be stated that financing MSMEs has remained a nagging challenge that must be tackled to give this sector the needed lifeline for a sustained economic development. Consequently, this work tries to review the Indian model of MSMEs financing as a useful one for Nigeria to copy and modify to suit local conditions and reinvent this ailing sector. While the Indian MSMEs cannot said be perfectly financed, they represent useful models of institutionalized financing of an all-important sector that Nigeria can learn from. The study is comparative and relies on secondary data that are well organized in a coherent manner to give the work the desired social science research foundation.

The development of a strong platform around the concept of rural tourism is defiantly useful for a country like India, where 74% of the population resides in its 7 million villages. Across the world the trends of industrialization and development have had an urban centric approach. Alongside the stress of urban lifestyle have led to a “counter-urbanization” syndrome. Rural tourism is one of the few activities which can provide a solution to problem like falling income level and lesser job opportunities. Besides, there are other factor which is shifting the trend towards rural tourism like increasing level of awareness, growing interest in heritage and culture and improved accessibility and environmental consciousness. The government, of late, has realized what the rural India can offer to the world. The tenth five year plan has identified tourism as one of the major sources for generating employment and promoting sustainable livelihoods. The union ministry of tourism in collaboration with UNDP has launched the endogenous tourism projects linked to the existing rural tourism scheme of the government. The UNDP has committed $ 2.5 million for the projects. UNDP will help in areas of capacity building, involvement of NGOs, local communities and artisans forge strong community-private and public sector partnership. The government also decided to develop necessary infrastructure for facilitating rural tourism. The researchers, realizing the above facts and abundant opportunities in this field, is submitting this re
