SNS/SIFR Finanspanel: Franklin Allen, China – Economic growth and the stock market

Franklin Allen, one of the world’s foremost experts on financial crises, will analyze the development on the Chinese stock markets and of China’s economic growth.

The Chinese stock markets have fallen by almost 40 per cent since their peak in June. What caused the dramatic fluctuations and what does the development say about corporate governance in China?

Franklin Allen is the Director of the research institute Brevan Howard Centre for Financial Analysis at the Imperial College in London. He is also a professor of finance at the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania. He has been studying the Chinese economy for many years and has also for many years been an advisor to the Swedish Riksbank.

On October 9, Franklin Allen will present his latest paper “Explaining the Disconnection between Chinas Economic Growth and Stock Market Performance”.

The Finanspanel is the meeting forum of SNS and SIFR for the financial sector.
