Understanding China's Investment Environment


CUHK Business School presents the second seminar of the China Business Knowledge @ CUHK Luncheon Series on 26 October with the theme: “Understanding China's Investment Environment" .

Financial analysts often give overly optimistic stock recommendations, with the majority being "Buy", or "Strong Buy”. At this seminar, Prof. Gu Zhaoyang will discuss the key role institutional investors play in the biased behaviour of analysts. By allocating commission fees and using their personal connections, managers of mutual funds can unduly influence analysts to recommend stocks that the funds have invested in.

Continuing on the theme, Mr. Patrick Cheung Wing-hon, an alumnus and experienced investor, will talk about his investment journey in China, focusing on technology, innovation and consumer-related industries.

By exploring business theories and practices, the luncheon series aims to help participants understand the modern business environment of both Hong Kong and mainland China with the knowledge and experience of faculty members and alumni.
