In addition, MarcumBP, CCG and the Shenzhen Stock Exchange (SZSE) announced the China Best Ideas A-share Company Tour, which will provide investors with an opportunity to tour a number of carefully selected A-share public companies in Beijing, September 11th.  

These two events will provide the attending overseas investors an introduction to the process required to invest in A-Share companies, a sampling of active public traded companies listed on the Shenzhen Stock Exchange, and an open house program for the investors to visit Chinese companies. These events will be co-organized by (SZSE), one of the two independently operating stock exchanges in PRC.

The Investing in A-Share Panel will take place on the afternoon of the China Best Ideas Investment Conference, at 4 to 5 p.m. on September 10th, 2013. The session will include SZSE representatives, QFII investment consultants and experts from local law firms to speak on the topics of obtaining a QFII quota, the legal process of investing on A-Share, equity research, trading, and issues of governance and transparency for A-Share listed securities.

Tour of SZSE-listed companies

The one-day bus tour will visit three companies headquartered in Beijing, and each of them will hold an open house session with the investors, providing an introduction to each company's business, management and strategy. The companies are selected by SZSE as representative ones with strong financial performance, and they are accordingly listed on the SZSE's Main Board, SME Board, and ChiNext.

The three companies will be:

  • Beijing Origin Water Technology Company

"China's government is increasing the openness of financial markets recently and trying to encourage outside investors," said Drew Bernstein, managing partner of MarcumBP. "Investors and companies have learned some hard lessons about investing in Chinese companies in recent years, but the China's government has taken steps to improve transparency and create a framework to reduce fraud.  This is part of a painful process for investors and the maturation of China's economy to remove the bad actors from financial markets."

The events are free to attend for institutional investors, family offices, private equity and venture funds. To register please go to Chairman and C-level executives from China's listed companies and companies considering an IPO are welcome to join the "Capital Markets & Accounting Bootcamp: How to Survive & Thrive as a US-listed Company after the Storm" on Sept. 9 at the Four Seasons Beijing.
