Methodologies to Develop an Integral Proposal That Calculates Impairment of Accounts Receivable with an Approach to Expected Losses

(Aracely Sánchez-Serna, Elmer Adrián Camacho-Zabala and Nicolás Martínez-Pineda, Page 1-17)

Our aim is to introduce a set of approaches and methodologies, which should be taken into account when considering criteria for the creation of a model, that allow the development of an impairment model of accounts receivable with the expected-losses approach. To create these, the literature we reviewed addressed the characteristics of the methodologies and identifying its variables, ensuing an application of these variables in a model applicable to companies of the tertiary sector, and that can be chosen according to their needs. By integrating the traditional and modern approach and the internal and external variables it was found that this gave validity to the complete model. Likewise, we concluded that by applying complimentary theories like Poisson’s, Markov’s and Montercarlo’s, this model can be improved.

Sustainable Port KPIs Assessment: A case study of the eastern economic corridor in Thailand

(Thanyaphat Muangpan, Kamonchanok Suthiwartnarueput, Page 33-45)

Port sustainability is a major challenge worldwide. The Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) of Thailand port needs to develop their KPIs in sustainable issues.  Even though, sustainable port KPIs have been studied broadly for some years ago. Only a few of them have ever studied the implementation of these KPIs in port. This paper, therefore, aims to evaluate the implementation of port sustainability KPIs. All international port terminals in the EEC have been investigated as a case study. Binary survey questionnaire was used to collect data and descriptive statistics percentages are employed to analyze the implementation of sustainable port KPIs assessment. The findings show that sustainable port KPIs are implemented slightly different, based on the nature of the port namely, container port, non-container port and multi-purpose port. For the non-container ports, it is found that the critical KPI implemented the critical KPI group (KPI group 1 and group 2) show the highest percentage of the implementation currently use. For multi-purpose port and container port, this is found that the current KPI used are the preferable KPI group (KPI group 3 and group 4) which represent much less percentage of the implementation than in the first two groups.

 (Toto Sugiharto, Novita Sulistiowati and Rina Nofiyanti, page 47-65)

The objective of the study is to analyze the effect of macro and micro economic factors on the financial health of general insurance companies in Indonesia. Macroeconomic factors include economic growth rate, inflation rate, and interest rate; microeconomic factors include company size, investment performance, loss ratio, and current ratio. Financial health is represented by risk-based capital. Automatic linear modeling was performed to test the proposed hypotheses. It is revealed that the financial health of general insurance companies is significantly influenced by, respectively, current ratio, reference interest rate, inflation rate, and company size in different directions and magnitudes.

Do Financial Technology Startups Disrupt Business and Performance of Financial Institutions in Indonesia?

 (Arif Singapurwoko, page 67-81)

This study aims to investigate disruptive influences of financial technology startups on Indonesian financial institutions registered in Indonesia Stock Exchange and Financial Service Authority. The disruption is in the form of loan distribution and profits gained by financial institutions’ business. This study involved rural banks, commercial banks, and multi-finance institutions which principally run peer-to-peer lending business. Loan distribution was assessed by net loan to assets while profit was assessed by return on assets. This study employed paired sample t-test to examine if net loans to assets and return on assets received differences before and after financial technology startups emerged. The study reveals that financial technology startups disrupt financial institutions’ business and performance because their total of net loans to assets and total of return on assets decrease. However, this condition only occurs in rural banks and multi-finance institutions. Business threat of financial technology startups does not occur in commercial banks.

The human resources management is a complex process that must be developed by any organization that aspires to achieve its goals satisfactorily, considering a set of variables with whose interrelationship the achievement of these organizational results is guaranteed. Several studies have been developed that aim to identify the extent to which the variables contained in human resources management condition or determine the level of performance of the organization, this particular study has as objective to establish, through a confirmatory factor analysis and a model of structural equations, the degree of incidence of the variables contemplated in this management system on the overall indicators of the company studied. The results, obtained through an explanatory research in Ecuadorian organizations, show the high incidence of training and employee motivation processes in the behavior of the organizational results indexes and, to a lesser extent, the planning, work organization and performance assessment processes.
