Topic: Cost of capital (equity or/and debt) can significantly affect the financial performance of a business. By reviewing relevant journal articles (minimum 6 required), identify three (3) factors that you believe are important in determining the cost of capital of a firm. In your written assignment, you need to:
(1) provide theoretical evidence of how the chosen factors can affect the cost of capital;
(2) using ASX (Australian Securities Exchange) listed firms as examples, provide empirical supporting evidence to your arguments.
This is a group assignment. The groups will be formed in tutorials in Week 2, with each group consisting of 2 students. Group members are expected to actively discuss and work among themselves but not refer to the work of any other groups. Any collusion of this form will be treated seriously and penalized according to the UOW policy on Academic Integrity and Plagiarism.
Each member in a group is expected to contribute equally to the assessment task. In the event of any problems in the group (such as illness, differences between group members), the subject coordinator is the final arbitrator of any issues arising in the group work. Finance homework help
