Financial Risk Management via a Two Factors Model on the Risk Level of Vietnam Electric Power Industry during and after the Global Crisis | Chapter 04 | Emerging Issues and Development in Economics and Trade Vol. 3

This research paper aims to find out the risk level of listed electric power firms increasing or decreasing during the crisis 2007-2011. The significance of this paper is to provide these firms with financing information based on risk level. Using a two (2) factors model, this research paper analyzes the impacts of both financial leverage and the size of firms’ competitors in the electric power industry on the market risk level of 20 listed companies in this category.

This paper founds out that the risk dispersion can be reduced to 0,039 (asset beta var) if leverage is up to 30%.


Beside, the empirical research findings show us that the market risk level measured by asset beta mean is also reduced to 0,131 when financial leverage increases 30%.


Last but not least, this paper illustrates calculated results that might give proper recommendations to relevant governments and institutions in re-evaluating their policies after the financial crisis 2007-2011.

Medicinal plants have been known for centuries and are highly valued all over the world as a rich source of therapeutic agents of medicinal plants for public health care in developing nations [65]. Even today, the WHO estimates that up to 80 percent of the world population still relies mainly on traditional remedies such as herbs for their primary health care [13]. Ahmed et al. mentioned that according to a survey conducted by W.H.O., traditional healers treat 65% patients in Sri Lanka and 80% in India [3]. According to the WHO, around 21,000 plant species have the potential for being used as medicinal plants. Different ethnic and different language speaking peoples are living in Asian countries. Plants are commonly known by their local names in every part of the world. These local names play a very important role in ethno-botanical study of a specific tribe or region. Local names given to plants by indigenous people in their local dialects often reflect a broad spectrum of inf
