Here, in this case, the market capitalisation will be weighted. There is no percentage of the index stock. Relative size is used to determine the weight of ASX index (Chavas & Falco, 2012). ASX 200 is the factor that is used to measure the performance of equity in the large cap. If the company is large, the weight will be high in the index.

3. Macro business environment-
a. The overall stability of the political system/ government of the country in which the business operates-
The stability of the government of the country include the following-
– The government of the country is such that they encourage the free investment policy within the country. It will help to improve the movement of the investment. Anybody can invest in both listed and securities.
– There are least regulations imposed by the government of such countries. It will help to enhance the overall performance and profitability of the company (Brown, et al., 2012). Less regulation encourages the free movement.
BKI is doing the proper estimations concerning the business. This estimation will help to enhance the future estimates of the company. It is one of the important factors showing that the company will spend more to improve the performance of it by providing suitable training to them (Braun & Clarke, 2013). At the same time, it is motivated to put their best efforts towards the development and growth of the company. The growth of the company depends upon the performance of it of the company.
The performance is evaluated based on the measurement of output. The performance evaluation will help to improve the output of the BKI Investment Management Ltd. Here, in this case, the output will be the productivity of it. If the productivity is improved, the company will be more profitable. SuItable measures are taken for the same.
There is a need for the measurement of the demand and a need to determine whether the nature of the customers’ demands is homogeneous or variable. It is a manager to find out whether the economies of scale or the scope helps to reduce the cost of the production technologies. Regional tariff needs to be identified by the manager (BEKAERT & URIAS, 1996). The best location can be selected based on the tax and tariff information. The logistics should be at the aggregate level and need to be identified by the manager. There is a need to define the appropriate number of facilities in the region. Hence BKI is trying to get all the information.
Demand is forecasted based on the region as well as the country. Economies of the scale are required to be measured. Demand risk, political risk, exchange rate risk, tax incentives, and risk import restrictions can be configured with the regional facility. Identification of the competItors is made (Farmer, 2012). Demand varies with the region as well as with the country. It can be high or low. Economies of large scale need to be measured to find out the configuration with the regional facility. There are various risks involved that are discussed above (Arouri, et al., 2011). Demand risk is the rise and fall in demand for the rise and fall in supply.PolItical risk is associated with the matters relating to politics, changes in the currency.The exchange rate can be riskier, and various tax incentives can act as restrictions. Various risks and the changes in the demand hamper the growth of the business. The smooth functioning of the business is affected by the various restrictions imposed. It is necessary to identify who the competitors are in the market. It is essential to know who your competitors are in the market. It will help in dealing with them by building a suitable strategy (Levine & Zervos, 1996).
b. The general level of inflation, unemployment and average interest rate of the country in which the business located-
It has the direct impact on inflation, unemployment and average rate of interest of the country. Due to inflation, there will be the rise in prices of stock. It will amount to decrease in the level of investment by the company. Inflation will reduce the number of shareholders. Thus, it is necessary for the company to reduce inflation that will enhance the overall performance of the company thereby, affecting its profitability. Now BKI investment Maanagement Ltd is trying to reduce the costs involved to deal with the rising inflation.
Again, another important reason is unemployment. If there is increasing rate of unemployment, there will be the reduction in the number of shareholders investing. As the level of investment is reduced, the company may suffer as there is the direct impact on the profitability of the company.
Finally, the average interest rate affects the overall performance of the company. If the rate of interest is high, there will be the reduction in the investment. And if the rate of average interest is low, there will be more demand for investment in the stock options in the market. Thus, proper strategy is required to be made for the same.BKIis working to increase the employee retention and provide better employee satisfaction.
The difference can be made in the same by being entrepreneurs are full of passion to make the things possible. It’s not all about sitting around and talking; they are about to make everything happen. The optimism should be unjustifiable. Uncertainty should be tolerated. Other people need to be concerned genuinely. BKI Investment Management Ltd being the market leader is able to take high risk and genetrate greater returns.. The propensity is considered to be the interest of motivation. If the individuals have high achievements, there will be moderate propensIty concerning risk. Uncertainty is accepted by entrepreneurs concerning the security of career, relations with family and the psychic relating to well being.
Tenacity includes the failures sustained by the Entrepreneurs (North, 2006). Passion is most of the entrepreneurs are having the strong determination of changing the world. It helps them to get through a hard time. AmbiguIty tolerance will help in the management of fear. It includes bankruptcy and payroll missing, etc., Vision means entrepreneurs face the future by keeping in mind all the estimations concerning future. Self-belief includes the self-confidence. It includes taking up the risk and becoming conservative. BKIis very commited to its stakeholders for their overall profits.

b. Does the consumption of goods produce by the business generate any positive or negative externalities? If negative, has the government put in place any measures to mitigate. What is done to mitigate the business? What is done to take advantage?
Yes, the consumption of goods produced by the BKI generates negative externalities. The measures put in by the government is to invest in goods only after reading all the required details. Everything should be disclosed to the customers based on which they can make the choices and BKI is following the same. All the required information concerning the volume, the price should be disclosed to the general public based on which the general public makes the final investment in the capital market.
Targeting customers is quite appealing to reach the large number of customers. Special offers help to attract a large number of customers. Personalization requires some experience to attract the customers’ interests. Proper creation of content to grab more customers, a winning risk helps to attract and stick to a large number of customers for a long time. Foreign currency is under the control of the UN and FDI, who look after their management. Integration of channel says the multichannel helps the customers to experience the product as well. Risking promotion affects the business as It brings more revenue to an economy and thus helps the economy to grow (Omisore, et al., 2012).
