Taking Stock of China's Changing Market
Ross School alumnus and investment banker Winston Ma writes about new opportunities in China's transforming capital markets.
ANN ARBOR, Mich.—Recent reforms in China's stock market are opening it to more foreign investment, writes Winston Ma, Esq., CFA, in his recently published book "Investing in China, New Opportunities in a Transforming Stock Market."
Ma, a vice president at JPMorgan Investment Bank in New York and a 2003 graduate of the Stephen M. Ross School's MBA program, is one of a small number of native Chinese who has worked as an investment banker and a capital markets attorney in China and the United States.
The complex equity ownership structure of listed companies is a distinctive feature of the Chinese stock market, says Ma, who provides a history of the stock market and information about investment products and new trading options now available. To improve the ownership structure in listed companies, the Chinese government has initiated reforms to promote a stronger institutional investor base in its public "A" share market and to reduce state ownership through privatization.
"Investing in China," published by Risk Books in London, has been quoted in a number of publications, including The Wall Street Journal, Institutional Investors and Asia Risk magazine.
