2. Tues May 23, 2017 6:30pm – 9:00pm – Stanford Club of Singapore presents Equity Investing with Chinese Characteristics: Challenges & Opportunities
As China continues to open her equity markets to foreigners, what should would-be investors be aware of? On many dimensions, equity investing with Chinese characteristics is not like investing in any other market in the world. In this seminar, we will survey both the challenges and opportunities facing overseas investors who would like to invest in publicly listed stocks in China markets.
Conducted by Prof Charles Lee, The Moghadam Family Professor and Professor of Accounting, this seminar is for anyone interested in China’s stock markets, particularly those who are considering investing in Chinese publicly listed stocks. We will trace the evolution of the two major exchanges in China (Shenzhen and Shanghai) and discuss the current opportunity set, as well as the key challenges, facing foreign investors.
Coffee and tea will be served.

3. Wed May 24, 2017 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM - University of Michigan Alumni Singapore presents A Fireside Chat: Singapore's Competitive Advantage as a Smart Nation with Dr Yuen Yuen Ang, Associate Professor of Political Science, University of Michigan
While Smart Cities have been popping up around the world, the Republic of Singapore aims to be the first SMART NATION - creating a future of better living for all through technology-enabled solutions. It plans to rally the collective efforts of people, businesses and government, resulting in more opportunities and stronger communities. Professor Yuen Yuen Ang, Associate Professor of Political Science at the
University of Michigan, returns to her native Singapore to explore the question, "Does Singapore have a competitive advantage in smart-ness?"
Prof Ang will share her thoughts on the types of "smart" she sees in America versus China, and raise these questions for discussion: In the face of two great nations, both brimming with smart people, innovation, and technology, in what way is Singapore uniquely "smart"? What forms of intelligence can Singapore offer that other nations cannot or don't care to offer? Join us for an engaging conversation with Prof Ang!
Venue: 190 Clemenceau Avenue, #04-10 Singapore Shopping Centre, Singapore 239924
