Research Focus

Wang's research focuses on the securities investor protection in China. He chose to study this issue, because minority investors constitute the main body of China's capital markets; therefore, the protection of their interests is closely related to the effective operation of the stock markets. By comparing the investor protection systems between China and the US, he analyzes the institutional deficiencies of investor protection in China based upon China's Securities Law Amendment and the reform of the registration-based IPO system at the Shanghai Stock Exchange. He is exploring the approaches to improve the investor protection system in China.
