SET I

Question.1. Explain the concept of Random Walk in the context of Efficient Market Hypothesis.

Answer:The notion that the price of stocks reflect all the publicly available information is referred to as the Efficient Market Hypothesis (“EMH”) or the Random Walk Theory. This notion was first developed by Eugene Fama in 1960. According to the theory, it is believed that the security markets are extremely efficient in reflecting all the available



Question.2. Elucidate the concept of Efficient Frontier.

Answer:The efficient frontier is the set of optimal portfolios that offers the highest expected return for a defined level of risk or the lowest risk for a given level of expected return.

Portfolios that cluster to the right of the efficient frontier are also sub-optimal because they have a higher level of risk for the defined rate of



Question.3. Discuss on the issues in Beta Estimation.

Gold is typically not correlated to the market as a whole and hence has a beta around 0. Betas can range from across the spectrum; however, it is rare to see one below -1 or above 4. The market, as measured by the S&P 500, has a beta of 1 by definition.

Financial Risk

b. Explain the stages in the Industry Life Cycle

Answer:Industry analysis is a tool that facilitates a company's understanding of its position relative to other companies that produce similar products or services. Understanding the forces at work in the overall industry is an important component of effective strategic planning. Industry analysis enables small business owners to identify the threats and opportunities facing their businesses, and to focus their resources on developing unique capabilities that could lead to a competitive advantage.
3. a) State the assumptions of Technical Analysis and elucidate any two of it.

Answer:Technical analysis is a method of evaluating securities that involves a statistical analysis of market activity, such as price and volume. Technical analysts do not attempt to measure a security’s intrinsic value, but rather, use charts and other tools to identify patterns that can be used as a basis for investment decisions.

There are many different forms of technical

SET I

Question.1. What do you mean by Financial Audit? What are the advantages of Financial Audit?

Answer:A financial audit involves the verification of the financial statements of a company (or other institution or business entity) by an auditor. The aim of the audit is to verify that the financial statements have been made properly and meet the criteria set out in the Accounting Act. By law, audits are required to be performed by various types of financial and public institutions (e.g. banks, pension funds, insurance companies, joint-stock companies) and companies that meet at least two of the following conditions:

SET II



Question.1. What are the basic principles that are governing internal Control?

Answer:The Code of Ethical Conduct of the internal auditor was approved by Order no. 252/2004. Based on this act, the generally accepted basic principles for the good organization and exercise of the internal auditor profession are focused on the five major objective elements:

·       Integrity;
·       Independence and objectivity;
·       Confidentiality;
·       Competence in exercising the profession;
·       Political neutrality.




Question.2. What is Audit Risk? What are the various important elements that an insurance company should ensure for effective internal control system?

Answer:Some of us were taught that internal control for smaller entities was an oxymoron. My supervisors made it clear that, because segregation of incompatible duties was not usually possible for smaller entities, internal control was non-existent.  In 2006, COSO changed the rules by publishing Internal Control over Financial Reporting — Guidance for Smaller Public Companies and recognizing there are different rules for larger and smaller entities.




Question.3. What are problems encountered in an electronic data Processing environment?

Answer:Audit clients who have not computerized their accounting systems to some extent are all but non-existent in today's marketplace. Probably as difficult to locate would be an auditor who had not questioned whether he or she had properly considered the impact of a computerized environment on audit strategy. One relevant question in a computerized environment that every auditor should ask is, "Does my audit approach result in inadvertent reliance on computer-based controls without having properly tested these controls?"
