The development and impact of internet finance
Wang, Jia ; Dědek, Oldřich (advisor) ; Kotlán, Viktor (referee)
In recent years, the rapid development of Internet finance has seized the financial market with a variety of business modes, which has had a strong impact on traditional financial institutions. This thesis analyzes the characteristics and main modes of Internet finance to explore the impact and future development of Internet finance. Due to the variety of Internet financial modes, this thesis uses a representative model of third-party payment to study the impact on residents, governments, and commercial banks. The main models used are OLS, panel data models, and VAR models. In order to explore the future development of Internet finance, this thesis not only compares the development of Internet finance in the United States, Europe, and China, but also analyzes the differences in the development of various regions. In addition, the thesis uses SWOT analysis to analyze the current environment of Internet finance, and speculates on future development trends and development measures that can be taken. Keywords: Internet finance, third-party payment, regional differences, future development
Integration of European Stock Markets
Bartůňková, Hana ; Mejstřík, Michal (advisor) ; Dědek, Oldřich (referee)
This thesis deals with the issue of integration of stock markets in the European Union. Theoretical background explaining the importance of developed stock market for the economy and the benefits of stock market integration is followed by the analyses of integration barriers: legislative framework of European stock markets, high costs of cross-border trading and currency risk. It is shown that the current legislative process is able to create integrated European stock market, even if the problems concerning coordination of regulation and enforcement of the directives continue. High costs of cross-border trading remain an important barrier of stock market integration as well as the currency risk. Nevertheless this thesis verifies the hypothesis of forthcoming integration of European stock markets.
Interest rate derivatives offered by Czech banks : types, usage and pricing
Nevrkla, Ladislav ; Dědek, Oldřich (advisor) ; Vošvrda, Miloslav (referee)
This rigorous thesis describes interest rate derivatives in context of Czech banks. The interest rate derivative is defined for the purpose of this thesis as a financial instrument where the interest rate instrument is its underlying asset, which is denominated in a single currency and its payoff is dependent on future interest rate development. First part deals with an analysis of the bank sector and the identified products are described. Range of the offered products serves as an indicator of the interest rate derivative market development. Second part analyzes pricing models and tries to answer a question whether the banks price the derivatives products at fair value. The yield curve construction is described and Black - Scholes and Hull - White models follow. The whole structure of this thesis aims to cover the detailed description of the interest rate derivatives. Powered by TCPDF (
Economic impact of protectionist measures
Wang, Jinliang ; Jakubík, Petr (advisor) ; Dědek, Oldřich (referee)
Protectionism has become a hot topic in these years. Based on the data of China-U.S. trade war, this thesis explores the economic impact of protectionism on United States. The effect of U.S. protectionist measures on imports value, welfare change and employment has been estimated and the result shows although trade protection could bring benefits to the U.S. in the short term, it will cause substantial welfare losses to U.S. residents.

Collateralized Debt Obligation: Valuation and Sensitivity Analysis
Benešová, Petra ; Teplý, Petr (advisor) ; Dědek, Oldřich (referee)
A collateralized debt obligation (CDO) is a highly leverage structured credit product linked to credit events of a pool of underlying debt securities. CDO can be understood as an insurance against a credit risk of the pool where its issuer is a protection buyer and its investor is a protection seller. Whereas a CDO issuance has boomed in recent years, by the end of 2008 two thirds of CDOs were in a formal state of default. The aim of this thesis is to clear up the course of events which lead to the suspension of the CDO market and to deduce recommendations for its future development. To do so we develop a valuation program in MS Excel VBA based on a One Factor Gaussian Copula model. Using the program we first apply a sensitivity analysis, than we model value of a CDO tranche before the financial crisis stroke and after it to value a loss of investors based on a change in expected cash- flows. We detect four main deficiencies. First, the market was not properly diversified. Second, the valuation model was often not deeply understood which led to a mispricing of CDO tranches. Third, this resulted in a mispriced base correlation. We also numerically demonstrate the fourth deficiency, i.e. the mark-to-market valuation obligation which can have destructive effects. Recommendations to remove these...
Asymmetric developments in the EU: Is the Lucas Paradox behind?
Štěpán, Jaroslav ; Baxa, Jaromír (advisor) ; Dědek, Oldřich (referee)
Development in European Union is showing that even despite high amount of effort in economic integration, differences in cross-country development are still at play. Indications about Lucas Paradox can be observed, due to inefficient flow of capital. Aim of this study is to quantify, whether this Lucas paradox is present in EU and how it contributes to convergence or divergence between countries. Comparison of panel VAR impulse-response functions is used for evaluation. Results suggests, that Lucas paradox can be identified between Euro area vs non-Euro area countries and Euro area core vs periphery. Furthermore, capital misallocation regarding these four groups prevents possible short-term economic convergence.
Pricing Options Using Monte Carlo Simulation
Dutton, Ryan ; Dědek, Oldřich (advisor) ; Červinka, Michal (referee)
Monte Carlo simulation is a valuable tool in computational finance. It is widely used to evaluate portfolio management rules, to price derivatives, to simulate hedging strategies, and to estimate Value at Risk. The purpose of this thesis is to develop the mathematical foundation and an algorithmic structure to carry out Monte Carlo simulation to price a European call option, investigate Black-Scholes model to look into the parallel between Monte Carlo simulation and Black-Scholes model, provide a solution for Black-Scholes model using Lognormal distribution of a stock price rather than solving Black-Scholes original partial differential equation, and finally compare the results of Monte Carlo simulation with Black- Scholes closed-form formula. Author's contribution can be best described as developing the mathematical foundation and the algorithm for Monte Carlo simulation, comparing the simulation results with the Black-Scholes model, and investigating how path-dependent options can be implemented using simulation when closed-form formulas may not be available.
