Best-selling author, Tim Clissold, will lay out what has happened to Chinese stocks on NASDAQ, AIM, and HKSE, with tremendous value destruction arising from corporate governance failures. In this talk, Tim will draw on a number of case studies (some of which are highly entertaining) to illustrate such problems on the ground. As more Chinese stocks are being included in the MSCI (and possibly other indices in the near future), the case for China to tighten corporate governance regulation is more pressing than ever. Tim will also present findings from a study he conducted with colleagues in relation to 60 China stocks that were attacked by short-sellers.
Tim is the author of the hugely successful book ‘Mr China’ - an incredible story/memoir of a Wall Street banker who went to China in the 1990s with $400 million and lost it all. With over 20 years’ of on the ground business experience in China, Tim's local knowledge and expertise are second to none - alongside his extraordinary abilities as a storyteller.
This talk is not to missed!! Join us for an informative and thought-provoking conversation with Tim, with entertaining and enlightening anecdotes along the way! There will be a drinks reception after Tim's talk at St Hugh's College. Please email the Chinese Law Discussion Group convenor if you would like to join us for the reception.
