Q1- What is meant by risk in finance? Describe the term ‘systematic risk’. Financial risk is usually is a patio umbrella phrase for the risk regarding any type of financing. Inside a financial circumstance risk might be mitigated in two approaches. One, by hedging utilizing the correlations of stocks (CAPM), the second thing is to apply derivatives. Investors typically use both, though their purposes are very different.

Q2 - Explain why it is not possible for firms to increase debts even though it is advantageous for them in a situation where there is corporate tax. If corporate tax rates increase, then companies get a larger tax advantage from debt in their capital structure, so they will increase their debt ratios. If personal taxes increase, bondholders will pay more taxes and will demand a higher rate of return from companies to compensate them. Therefore, companies will need to pay higher interest rates, which makes debt more expensive. Therefore, an increase in the personal tax rate will not encourage corporations to increase their debt ratios.
