The 15th China International Finance Forum 2018 was held over two days in Shanghai in December. I was invited to present a keynote at the opening ceremony (see my keynote talk and my keynote slides) and – also – a talk on listing shares on international markets, including in Australia (see my talk on Overseas Stock Listing and my stock-listing slides).  china international finance forum 20181215Of course, both sessions involved a clear disclaimer – the views are mine, not those of any former employer such as ASIC or Citibank.

The China Financial Summit 2018 was held in May in Beijing in association with a large innovation exhibition, CHITEC. The session I was invited to address (as a former chief economist for ASIC) was on listing on the Australian stock market. See my speaking notes, my slides and a surprisingly good staged photo.

It will be interesting to see if there is increased interest amongst Chinese companies, large or smaller, on the Australian stock markets (ASX, NSX or SSX) in the next year or so.
