Since the 2008 financial crisis, the total assets managed by U.S. mutual funds have frequently hit new highs and the industry has become increasingly concentrated.

Building on strategic management theories, I suggest that mutual fund families that adopted active and passive management strategies tend to compete in different dimensions. Active management fund families tend to implement the product differentiation strategy, competing on “product quality” through excess-returns, innovative and differentiated …

中国改革开放40年,全国人民整体生活水平提升,家用轿车已经全面普及,医疗及需求的提升,导致医院停车空间严重欠缺。而智能立体停车设备,可以采用零星用地,解决医院停车难题。 建设领域常用的融资手段,在智能停车位建设上尚不能完全适应,本文的智能停车位建设在医院,受土地性质的限制,在融资方面受到的限制也比较多。因而本文围绕以医院建设智能停车位的资金需求而展开的融资方案研究,采用实地研究中的案例研究方法,案例研究自变量中,2016年2月-2017年12月,耗时20个月,以上海的107家医院62个融资需求的智能停车位的收益稳定性、建设批量、建设速度、收益权期限、建设投入、运营收入、运营支出及智能停车设备建成后的综合收益做充分的研究统计分析;案例研究因变量中,2016年10月-2017年12月,耗时14个月,对145家金融机构、210位机构负责人,诸如银行、信托、基金、保理、融资租赁、资产管理、小额贷款、消费金融、私募、ABS、保险、融资担保、融资中介、风险投资、证券等多个机构的风控标准要素如增信要求、担保条件、合作模式、放款额度、资金期限、资金成本、投资方案、融资费用、放款速度等多个投资条件实施访谈研究统计分析,总结提炼对照假设获得对应的高匹配程度的多种组合融资方案,高度优化了B-Park公司的初始融资方案。 本文一个主要的研究结论是:医院智能停车项目可以采取单一融资模式,也可以采取集成融资模式,揭示了在新的环境创新科技金融领域的融资方案。此外,项目的投资收益表现对收费价格很敏感,但是对资金成本(年利率)不是很敏感。结果表明,在新的环境下, 科技金融领域的融资方案得到了创新。这是一篇典型的生产、教学和研究论文,为我国停车建设融资需求的快速发展,特别是医院停车建设融资需求提供了较高的研究参考。 Dissertation/Thesis

财富管理是一个高度信息不对称的行业,因此投资人需要尽可能减少自身的不确定来做投资决策,通过文献整理,本文发现通过建立信任来消除不确定性是很多投资人都会选择的帮助投资决策的方法。纵观历史,美国2007-2008年的金融危机也恰恰导致金融市场投资人对于理财机构信任的严重缺失,相同的情况也可能发生在中国财富管理市场,因此本文将此选作研究重点,希望深入研究财富管理公司投资人对理财师的信任来得到一系列结论。本文最终发现就平台和理财师相比,投资人更看重平台的信誉度。 投资人大多认为平台的信誉度要高于理财师的信誉度,但是这并不意味着理财师不重要。本文进一步的分析发现,多数投资人会和理财师建立起一种私人联系,且该私人关系有助于加强客户和平台的联系。投资人认为行业经验、为人诚恳,说话可信以及责任心是加强这种私人关系的重要因素。最后,投资人对于钜派平台的信任主要由对于理财师的信任来维持,同时对于理财师的信任主要来自与情感信任。本文的发现对财富管理平台具有战略意义。 Dissertation/Thesis
