After observing that the stock of mainland-listed companies usually beats the market when foreign investors hold more than five percent of the shares, a Goldman Sachs analyst suggested recently that investors should look for companies with relatively high foreign ownership when buying Chinese shares. The findings of some of my own academic research offer some explanations for this trend, and suggest three things to know about Chinese companies, and those from other emerging markets, before investing: foreign ownership, institutional investors and political connections. Since many factors can influence stock performance, I can’t say with certainty that these things will guarantee good stock performance. But I have seen evidence of how they have had a positive effect on the governance and transparency practices at Chinese listed companies, and that often signals better potential for a good performance.

Clearly the time has come for a long-term solution to Europe’s broken immigration system – one that looks at the issue from an economic perspective, not an emotional one. Nowhere is this more obvious today than in Germany. Angela Merkel, unable to form a coalition government more than three months after her party’s shaky retention of power, is still feeling the after-effects of anti-immigration sentiment that kept her from an impressive victory on September 24. But the problem, as we all know, is not Germany’s alone.

Firms that want to improve the performance of their corporate social responsibility (CSR) programmes may want to re-evaluate their corporate governance systems. A new study co-authored by CEIBS Professor of Management Tae-Yeol Kim shows that some governance mechanisms can also influence the outcomes of their CSR programmes.

Before moving abroad, businesses looking to go global should think about building their political connections at home, according to the results of a new study co-authored by CEIBS faculty. Titled “Diplomatic and Corporate Networks: Bridges to foreign locations,” the study explores how interactions between business networks and diplomatic relationships can impact where firms invest or locate abroad.

I think we’ve reached the tipping point for the bike-sharing business. The original idea of a sharing economy was to separate ownership and right to access, and to make idle resources fully available for sharing. In that sense, the bike-sharing scheme is a pseudo-sharing economy model.
