High transaction costs : indexing would be favored by the implied lower levels of trading activity and costs. Settlement problems : indexing would be favored by the implied lower levels of trading activity and settlement requirements. Financial disclosure and accounting standards : wide public availability of reliable financial information presumably leads to greater market efficiency, reducing the value of both fundamental analysis and active management, and favoring indexing. Restrictions of capital flows : indexing would be favored by the implied lower levels of trading activity and thus smaller opportunity for regulatory interference. b. A recommendation for active management would focus on short-term inefficiencies in, and long term prospects for, the developing Otunian markets and economy, inefficiencies and prospects which would not generally be found in more developed markets.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
