Institutions of a country, whether explicit or implicit, matter for its economic development. However, how the institutions shape the behavior of market participants are not obvious and are hard to be tracked. Utilizing textual analysis in his recent research, Prof. Zhang investigated the role of institutional knowledge in enhancing the information advantage of local financial analysts in China. His research reveals that analysts exhibit significantly higher forecast accuracy over the earnings of their target firms if they put more effort in covering the firms from a political perspective. By analyzing the collegial relationships among political and business elites, his research also shows the coordination or competition among politicians under the Chinese political hierarchy spills over to the firms affiliated with them.

With over 30 years of rich, extensive experience in both Hong Kong and mainland China, Mr. Albert Ng, Chairman, China and Managing Partner, Greater China of EY, will discuss the role of government and policies when doing business in China. He will also share how he leads his teams in managing the impact of political and policy changes.
