In this thesis I examine the opportunities and challenges faced by the community banks in China. Rooted in the local communities, community banks generally focus on serving the local residents, farmers, and micro and small business enterprises (MSBE) through relationship building. Although community banks tend to be small relative to the other financial institutions, their unique market positions and business strategies have helped them to survive the competition and secure some market shares. Thus, it is important to understand the business strategies of community banks and to explore their future business opportunities and challenges. I first provide a brief overview …

This study investigates the impact of a specific organizational form – partnership – on employees’ awareness of risk control and job engagement in securities companies. Given that their organizational performance relies heavily on the performance of individual employees, it is critical for securities companies in China to adopt appropriate organizational forms so that they can better captalize on their employees’ human capital to cope with the increasingly intense market competition. Partnership, as one of the few organizational forms, has been widely adopted in industries that rely on the performance of individuals, such as law, auditing, consulting, and investment banking, around …

中国商品期货市场经历30年发展,已初备协调资源分配、对冲经营风险的功能。但受产业自身和期货市场发展的制约,各期货品种市场有效性参差不齐。随着我国经济从增量阶段过渡到存量阶段,期货作为企业的价格管理和风险控制工具的重要性日益凸显,因此研究我国商品期货市场有效性具有非常好的现实意义。 本文开创性的从期货的基本功能——资源配置的角度出发,提出有效市场是指其期货价格能够对本行业社会资源起到合理的调配作用的市场。在内容安排上,本文首先总结了现有国际成熟期货品种的特点并找出能够反映期货对资源配置能力的四个指标假说,分别为期现回归性、利润波动性、库存波动性以及现金流变化,然后通过数学模型证明指标数据和品种成熟度的关联,最后应用该套指标对我国商品市场有效性进行检验。数学方法上,本文先采用Bai-Perron内生多重结构突变模型对时间序列进行突变点检验,然后对断点时间序列分别进行多元回归,并在剔除季节性和周期性后,通过平稳性检验、ARCH效应检验结果来确定相应的Garch模型,并用Garch模型来描述时间序列的波动性。 通过数学验证,我们认为期现回归性、利润波动性、库存波动性以及现金流变化这四个指标可以作为反映期货成熟度的检验指标,用该套方法对国内部分活跃品种检验后发现大连豆粕期货已经具备成熟品种的特征,本文认为豆粕期货市场是有效的;PTA、玉米淀粉期货的四个检验指标在近年来表现出时间序列优化的特点,但因时间较短尚不稳定,可以认为是接近成熟的品种;而螺纹钢和铝期货在多数指标上表现不佳,表明他们对社会资源配置能力较差,因此本文认为螺纹钢和铝期货市场是活跃但非有效的。通过进一步分析,本文认为品种的期现回归性差是制约其资源配置能力发挥的关键因素,而交易标的不明确、 仓单制作难度大、产业参与度低以及期货设计中的其他限制因素又是导致期现回归性差的重要原因。 Dissertation/Thesis

多元化公司整体上市和分拆上市的理论与实践在国际市场已经较为成熟,而对于中国A股来说,分拆上市一直受制于政策;2019年以来,随着科创板的开启及A股将迎来的改革,多元化公司分拆上市也将迎来重要机遇。 多年来,学术界对于多元化公司在资本市场方面的研究主要聚焦于估值比较、相关影响因素以及整体上市和者分拆上市的法律、财务、风险等方面。而本文在已有理论基础上,从股权集中度、新兴行业、跨市场上市(A+H)三个方面研究中国多元化公司的整体或者分拆上市的行为选择,研究发现:大股东持股比例更高的公司更倾向于整体上市,新兴行业或者创新性的子公司更可能被分拆上市,跨多个股票市场上市的公司更倾向分拆上市子公司,这与委托代理理论和信息不对称理论的预测一致。 为了让研究更加全面并具实用性,本文加入了对中国平安集团和温氏集团的案例分析,还针对中介投行和研究人员的特定人群进行分析式调研,结果均较好支持了研究结论,使得本文的研究兼具理论创新和实际指导价值。 关键词: 中国多元化公司,整体上市,分拆上市,股权集中度,新兴行业,跨市场上市 Dissertation/Thesis
