About MarcumBP 2014 China Best Ideas Investment Conference
The conference, hosted by Marcum, Bernstein & Pinchuk, is designed to highlight those Chinese companies that have demonstrated strong financial performance, robust business models, and excellent corporate governance. The conference will showcase companies ranging from large-cap to small-cap in growth sectors including internet, IT, consumer, media, healthcare, and education. With input from investors and analysts, your company has been selected as one of the “best-of-the-best” names.
Last year, the conference attracted several hundred institutional investors, private equity investors, and investment bankers, and the companies that were selected have shown share price increases of over 50% on average. Given the increased number of Chinese IPOs in recent months and the structural changes to China’s economy, we expect an even stronger level of attendance at our 2014 event.
The conference provides the opportunity for group presentations, which last year averaged well over 50 participants, and a full day of one-on-one meetings.
The conference will also feature topical panels on issues including:
- Venture Finance Today: Where is the money flowing?
- Return of the Overseas IPO: Riding the Alibaba tailwinds
- Decoding Economic Reform: Risks and investing themes of Beijing’s rebalancing
- Surviving a Crisis: Dealing with “short seller attacks,” auditor conflicts, and whistleblowers
