Exploring the SIB and its efforts on underfunded schools

Social Impact Bonds are broadly defined as privately managed investments designed to address public societal issues. I would argue that the SIB can be a reliable way as it stands to either predict success in education from an early age and identify earlier one’s path to upward movement foreseeing many obstacles ahead, i.e. familial issues not yet apparent, institution bias, and debunking the overall design seen historically for the upper classes of society. One of the most persistent issues within SIB is concerning school finance, underfunding or misguided funding - schools are not financed equitably. Circumventing much of the dangling carrot tactics present between federal and state education funding, privately managed funds can be funneled directly without delay into new initiatives foreseeing return on monetary capital combined with cost savings through SIB use. I propose a SIB whereby scalability of an intervention in early childhood education will go hand in a hand with benefits across sectors contributing to cost savings of public services and resources. Investment in year round mass Pre-K education will contribute to educational benefits and savings directly by decreasing special education resources necessary. The scaling up of this initiative will prove beneficial to areas such as mental health misdiagnoses, special education costs, crime reduction in turn decreasing justice system costs, involve parents in an education routine and rigorously train their expectations for subsequent grade levels, and provide a necessary shift in the overall poverty paradigm in the…...

...additional slippages lower as large part of restructured accounts are out of moratorium. Concerns over high textile exposure (~8%) seem overdone as better credit selection has prevented significant slippages so far. Exposure to government owned power companies (especially TNSEBRs2500mn) could remain an overhang until potential restructuring in H1FY13. Extent of valuation discount unjustified: KVB compares well with leading private sector peers on growth (loans growth at 25% CAGR during FY06-FY11), profitability (RoA of +1.5% and RoE of +20%) and quality (%GNPA at 1.45%, restructured at 2.2%, PCR at 80%). Despite that, KVB trades at a significant 50% discount to avg PBV of five quality private banks. Moreover, south based peer banks (FED, CUB, SIB) are trading at par with KVB despite lagging in many matrices. While some valuation discount to quality private banks can be justified on account of the size of operations and scalability challenges, the extent of discount currently is unjustified and we expect it to narrow down going ahead.

In doing this, he succeeded in involving all of the managers that would be affected by the prioritization system while maintaining the executive leadership team’s strategic goals. This new system was a substantial improvement over the former system. 3. On page 8 we see that $16 million of the $60 budget is for SIB projects, under the spending direction of Matulovic; on page 1 we see that some people consider this unfair - is it? Should budget be "set aside" for IT projects? Why? The budget allocated for the SIB (Stay in Business) projects (business continuity and legal) should receive the highest priority. As denoted by the name, if any of these projects are incomplete or fail, the risk to the business is substantial compared to business unit priorities. However, the amount budgeted may be a point that could be questioned. Instead of predetermining the amount required, he should have submitted the SIB to the same process as all of the other projects which would have reduced or eliminated the business unit manager’s perception that Matulovic was trying to control company strategy. 4. How should Matulovic respond to his fellow executives who are calling to ask him for special treatment outside the new priority management system? What should Matulovic do about the unfunded Supply Flow project? Matulovic created a well organized system......

Cross Sector Collaboration

...around the private sectors role in delivering healthcare to the masses, especially in developing economies (Hanson et al., 2008). Universal coverage in these countries is virtually non-existent, and it will take strong collaboration between the private and public sector in South Africa in order to provide broad access to healthcare. An extension of this debate is how healthcare should be financed and whether it should be totally financed by the public or private sector (Bennett, Ellias, & Ole, 1994). This paper seeks to explore the potential use of Social Impact Bonds (“SIBs”) in the financing of healthcare projects in South Africa, as well as the potential benefits that may be achieved in mitigating widespread corruption in the country. The NDP highlights the need to analyze the current healthcare system as a whole, which includes the financial mechanisms currently in use, and how they can be improved. SIBs have been utilised effectively in developed economies such as in the United States and United Kingdom, however the first ever pilot project was only launched in 2010 in Peterborough, UK making these instruments relatively new and untested in developing economies. Research is currently underway to determine if these financial instruments can be introduced into developing economies such as India and countries in Latin America (Koehane, 2013).

Social Finance

...MGT561 corporate financial policy Social Finance TMBA 오창화, TMBA 안가원, ME 백승휘 1. How do the Proposed Social Impact Bonds (SIBs) work? SIB는 지역사회의 다양한 사회적 문제를 해결하기 위한 한 방안으로 시작되었다. 사회성과연계채권(SIB)은 정책과제를 위탁 받은 민간업체가 목표를 달성했을 때만 정부가 사업비와 이자를 주되 실패하면 한푼도 주지 않는 성과급 형태의 계약을 말한다. 사회성과연계채권은 영국의 피터버러 교도소에서 처음 나왔다. “단순 범죄자의 경우 출소 후 사회의 보살핌을 받으면 재범 가능성이 크게 줄어든다”는 것에서 접근하여 SIB가 만들어져 500만 유로의 자금을 조달했다. 피터버러 교도소에 수감된 단기 수형자의 재판 빈도가 다른 교도소에서 출소한 단기 수형자들의 재범 빈도보다 7.5% 낮아질 경우 투자원금과 이자를 받을 수 있지만 만약 하락폭이 7.5%에 미치지 못할 경우에는 Social Finance는 한푼도 받지 못하게 된다. 이러한 SIB는 따로 예산이 필요하지 않고 목표조건을 충족시켰을 때에만 세금을 지출하기 때문에 사회문제를 효율적으로 해결할 수 있다. 정부측면에서는 결과가 나왔을 때만 지출하기 때문에 Risk가 없고, 지역사회는 좀 더 나은 서비스를 받게 되고, 투자자는 사회적 영향과 잠재적인 투자 수익 효과를 얻게 된다. Social Finance의 자세한 운영 방안은 위와 같다. 먼저 투자자로부터 투자를 받은 다음 사회적 서비스 제공자들에게 여러 다양한 Risk를 관리하고 조직화 시켜 준다. 서비스 제공자는 사회취약계층에게 서비스를 제공한 다음 그 결과로부터 Outcome을 달성한다. 그 다음 정부는 독립적인 평가자에게 그 Outcome를 측정하고 목표조건을 성공했을 시 Social Finance에게 금액을 지불한다. 마지막으로 받은 금액으로 Social Finance는 투자자에게 투자수익을 지불한다. 2. How should Social Finance structure the financial instrument: as a bond? As equity? As some hybrid? Social Finance는 사회성과연계채권을 채무증권과 지분증권의 성격을 모두 가지는 복합 금융상품(Hybrid instrument)으로 정의한다. 일단 전통적 채무증권(bond)과는 다른 성격을 가지고 있는 조건부 채권이다. 투자자가 영리목적 이외에 특정 사회공헌을 위한 목적으로 공공사업에 투자한다는 점에서 사회성과연계채권은 기부적 성격을 가지고 있다. 또한 일정 기한의 도래 후 지급청구권이 발생하는 기한부 채권과는 달리 사회적 성과 목표 달성을 조건으로 지급청구권이 발생하는 조건부 채권이라는 점에서 투자위험이 일반 채권보다 크다. 그리고 투자원금에 대한 상환청구권이 보장되지 않고 성과에 의해 보상이 연동된다는 점에서 지분(equity)의 성격도 가지고 있다. 3.......

Basel Iii

...in banking organisations. Supervisory monitoring The liquidity framework includes a common set of monitoring metrics to assist supervisors in identifying and analysing liquidity risk trends at both the bank and system-wide level. All Banks SIFIs In addition to meeting the Basel III requirements, global systemically important financial institutions (SIFIs) must have higher loss absorbency capacity to reflect the greater risks that they pose to the financial system. The Committee has developed a methodology that includes both quantitative indicators and qualitative elements to identify global systemically important banks (SIBs). The additional loss absorbency requirements are to be met with a progressive Common Equity Tier 1 (CET1) capital requirement ranging from 1% to 2.5%, depending on a bank’s systemic importance. For banks facing the highest SIB surcharge, an additional loss absorbency of 1% could be applied as a disincentive to increase materially their global systemic importance in the future. A consultative document was published in cooperation with the Financial Stability Board, which is coordinating the overall set of measures to reduce the moral hazard posed by global SIFIs. ...

Ponzi Schemes (Tim Durham & Allen Stanford

...academic since his prison term amounts to a life sentence at his age. He will not be eligible for release until January 25, 2056--when he will be 94 years old. Summary of Allen Stanford’s Ponzi scheme  The alleged fraud is over $7 billion. The vehicle for Stanford’s fraud was SIB, an offshore bank Stanford owned based in Antigua and Barbuda that sold certificates of deposit (CDs) to depositors. Stanford began operating the bank in 1985 in Montserrat, the British West Indies, under the name Guardian International Bank. He moved the bank to Antigua in 1990 and changed its name to Stanford International Bank in 1994. SIB issued CDs that typically paid a premium over interest rates on CDs issued by U.S. banks. By 2008, the bank owed its CD depositors more than $8 billion. According to SIB’s annual reports and marketing brochures, the bank purportedly invested CD proceeds in highly conservative, marketable securities, which were also highly liquid, meaning the bank could sell its assets and repay depositors very quickly. The bank also represented that all of its assets were globally diversified and overseen by money managers at top-tier financial institutions, with an additional level of oversight by SIB analysts based in Memphis, Tennessee. As shown at trial, that purported investment strategy and management of the bank’s assets was followed for only about 10-15 percent of the bank’s assets. Stanford diverted billions in depositor funds into various companies that he owned......

...Stanford Financial Group Company fraud in which Robert Allen Stanford, chairman of Stanford International Bank (SIB), was involved in a Ponzi scheme. Stanford was convicted of orchestrating a 20-year investment fraud scheme in which he misappropriated $7 billion form SIB to finance his personal businesses. The Stanford Financial Group claimed to have pulled in retail, wealthy and commercial investors from 136 countries on six continents. Lopez and Kuhrt was aware of what Stanford was doing but kept the information hidden from the public and from almost all of Stanford’s employees for they would not be able to discovery what was going on. The chief accounting Officer Gilbert T. Lopez Jr., were also involved in the fraud. Both Gilbert T. Lopez Jr., and Kuhrt was aware of the scheme and neither one of them came forward with the information. Doing the trail, more evidence was render about Robert Allen Stanford. The investigator found that Stanford was using sales from new CDs to pay existing depositors. In 2008, the financial crisis caused a slum, because new CD sales and redemptions reached an all-time high. The company brought in revenue of $741 million as additional funds into the bank to strengthen its capital base, as Stanford lied about personal funding. To add on to Stanford lies, his internal accountants inflated on paper work that value a piece of real estate SIB had purchased for $63.5 million earlier. Robert Allen Stanford was sentenced to 110 years in......

Lytic and Lysogenic Cycles of Lambda Phage

...bind to the transcriptional apparatus at the promoter. This prevents some of the early termination that occurs in the immediate early stage. Most importantly for lysis, it allows the transcription of O, P and Q factors. O and P are needed for DNA synthesis to occur – they recruit the host’s machinery for DNA replication to a point near their locus. P prevents the host from synthesizing bacterial DNA, working with cII. This produces a number of copies of the phage’s circular DNA, each of which is used in cyclic replication to produce around 10 phage genomes. Q is an anti-termination factor needed for progression to the late stage. Although int is part of the PL transcript, integrase is not synthesized because the transcript also contains the sib region which folds in a hair-pin loop and results in this section of the transcript being cleaved by RNaseIII. Late stage As soon as replication of the phage DNA starts, the other components of the new phages, i.e., heads, tails and proteins are required for lysis. The Q factor extends the PR’ transcript by binding to the transcriptional apparatus at a Q utilization (qut) site close to the promoter. Once Q is bound termination does not occur as easily and thus S, R and a number of genes coding for the heads and tails of the phage particles are transcribed. The head and tail proteins self-assemble. An endolysin, R, is needed to cleave the cell wall for lysis. S produces mRNA with two start sites for translation. One start site......

Duties of a Police Intelligence Operative in Nigeria

...DUTIES OF A Nigerian Police Intelligence OPERATIVE By Cpl. Aliyu Jibrin SIB Kano THE NIGERIA POLICE INTELLIGENCE The Force Intelligence Bureau (FIB), is a department of the Nigeria Police Force responsible for intelligence function, with the aim of preventing crimes and detecting criminals, so also create Intelligence for policy making and resources allocation. This department collects, collates, assess/analyse, evaluate and disseminate criminal intelligence on issues relevant to threat to safety of life and property which threatened the nation’s peace and security. Historically Nigeria Police first had the special branch known as ‘E’ Department dated back to 1948, where the Colonial Government used the Police ‘E’ branch to gather intelligence mostly on Nationalist Movement. The Police ‘E’ Department was later abolished in 1976, paving way for the emergence of the then N.S.O. (National Security Organization). The National Security Organization (NSO) was created under Decree No. 27 of 1976 by Gen. Olusegun Obasanjo, after the failed Dimka Coup which claimed the life of former Head of State Gen. Murtala Muhammad. The NSO was given a mandate of coordinating Internal Security, Foreign Intelligence and Counterintelligence activities. It was also charged with the detection and prevention of any crime against the security of the state, with the protection of classified materials, which is part of police duties.
