Research Topic:
Capital structure dynamics and financing decisions of Chinese listed firms

Research Details:
The importance of how companies are financed has been well-documented in financial and management research. The dynamic version of capital structure has become the frontier not only in the studies of US and Western economies, but also in the case of China. In order to fill the gap in the literature, this study concentrates on an analysis of the dynamic models of capital structure of Chinese listed corporations. It is expected to be one of the first few studies that investigate the dynamic adjustments in the capital structure of Chinese corporations. It will provide significant implications for Chinese firms about the factors in choosing an optimal capital structure and achieving the maximum value of the corporations.
