Assessment weighting: 25%

 

Coursework Assignment Outline:

The assignment is an individual report on risk analysis of a specific company and the company is AstraZeneca Plc. You are required to write a risk report on a specific company for an institutional investor who has £100,000 to invest. You are working for the investor so the report should be neutrally worded. This is not a sales report where your aim is to persuade the investor to take a position. Instead it is an honest evaluation of risk to enable the investor to make the correct decision for themselves. You are not required to provide a recommendation. The aim of the investor is to make a positive return from their capital, therefore, you should attempt to identify risks which will affect the company and might lead to a reduction in share price. You should also, where appropriate, use numerical techniques to quantify the risks of the investment.

 

Required:

 

  1. 1.      You are free to arrange the report in any way you like, however, the first page must contain a title and an executive Summary (no more than 200 words) describing your key findings. (Marks allocated: 10% - no more than 200 words)
  2. Estimate the Market Risk capital charge under different Basel Accords for the institutional investor if they invested in the company. You are required to use both variance-covariance and historical simulation method to estimate the market risk capital charge (collecting the historical closing price for the company for over the one to four years). You should also compare the results from and pros and cons of the chosen variance-covariance and historical simulation methods. (Marks allocated: 30% - 300 words excluding appendices)
  3. There are a range of risks which may affect the company and you should attempt to identify and describe the specific risks. Depending on the firm these may include: credit risk, market risk, liquidity risk, risks to the sector*, operational risk* and others. You may also wish to consider if any of these risks may easily be reduced by the investor. The report should include a quantitative analysis of worst case scenarios for the investor. In particular, if the investment goes badly, how much they are likely to lose. In doing this you should present your calculations and justify your approach. (*note no numerical analysis is necessary for these risks due to difficulty of obtaining data) (Marks allocated: 60% - 500 words excluding appendices)
