About the Research Paper
THE ATTACHED DOCUMENTS WILL HAVE ALL INFORMATION
Working in teams of four to five members, students will conduct an in-depth country analysis of an emerging market economy to determine its suitability for foreign direct investment (FDI) as a multinational corporation’s (MNC) global financial strategy. Opportunities for arbitrage and portfolio investments should also be researched and discussed.
An emerging market is a country with a Gross National Income (GNI) of $10,00.00 per capita (or with the potential for the 10K milestone) such as China, India, the Czech Republic, United Arab Emirates, Egypt, Turkey, Mexico, Thailand, Indonesia, Chile, Republic of Ireland, Israel, Romania, Brazil, South Africa, Vietnam, Russia, Malaysia, Israel, Bulgaria, Ghana, Poland, The Philippines, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Botswana, etc.
Additionally, there should be projected costs of the FDI in the host country’s currency translated into its U.S. dollar equivalent, with estimated price and demand schedule for the next 3 years. The weighted average cost of capital (WACC) should be part of the discussion to facilitate understanding of the project costs and future cash flows (discounted to its present value) from the investment. The appropriate hedging instruments to mitigate potential exposure to FX, economic and translation risks should also be discussed.
The purpose of the research assignment is to demonstrate understanding of the student learning outcomes as stated, and the relationship between the dynamics of profitability and global financial strategy in a multinational setting.
