The author, Winston Ma, CFA, is one of a small number of native Chinese that have worked as an investment banker and practicing capital markets attorney in both the United States and China. He brings a unique and invaluable insight to this increasingly important focus for international investment. “Investing in China” provides a practical roadmap for global investors and lays out:

  • a cutting-edge picture of China’s stock market at the birth of a new era;
  • a variety of new financial products representing a variety of risk / reward profiles (including warrants, exchange-traded funds, convertible bonds, and principal-protected products);
  • the increasingly active foreign M&A and MBO markets;
  • unique trading behavior and structuring features of the investment vehicles resulting from the “Chinese characteristics” of the market and regulatory landscape;
  • the vast new opportunities, complexities and sometimes risks brought in by the state share reform of 2005, indisputably the biggest ever reform in market history
  • Investing in China is an accessible read - it describes current market developments, financial products and transactions in a practical manner, avoiding complex math. With a clear approach and engaging writing style, Winston Ma provides an authoritative overview of the historic opening up of these markets.
