Event Description

Behavioral Science: 

Anomalies in Chinese Equity Markets

Jason Hsu, Ph.D

Founder and CIO

Rayliant Global Advisors

Which factors have worked since the opening of China's stock markets two decades ago? Jason Hsu will explain his team's findings from their research that applied well-studied factor strategies from the US equity anomalies literature to Chinese A-shares.

Jason reconciled conflicting results from the prior A-shares anomalies literature and will explain differences between US and Chinese factor investing experiences based on unique features of China's evolving investing landscape including:

  • Issues related to regulation
  • Financial reporting standards
  • Differences in market microstructure
  • Investor behavior
The research also demonstrates ways in which a deep institutional knowledge of Chinese financial markets leads to more effective investment strategies through factor design and portfolio construction tailored to novel features of A-shares.To be included, the companies must derive their profits from Ecommerce or Internet activities and include search engines, online retail, social networking, online video, e-payments, online gaming and online travel.
