FTChinese Annual Forum 2019

Location: Hangzhou, China Date: November 12, 2019


Being the strategic partner, Oliver Wyman is proud to collaborate with FTChinese for the launch of Reading List 2019 at FTChinese Annual Forum.

The forum is FT’s flagship conference in China. This year, themed “Present & Prospect: Eyes on 2020, a New Era for Crossover Innovation”, it gathers hundreds of high-profile industry players, including business executives, entrepreneurs, scholars and investors to debate cutting-edge topics such as artificial intelligence, fintech and the digital economy, all of which are central to global corporate planning and future enhancement.

Peter Reynolds, Partner and Head of Greater China, joined by Tracy Zhang, Publisher of FTChinese, introduces three books that fuel readers’ learning of economic systems, business cycles and investment philosophy. All the books deserve a spot on your reading list.

Wu describes in detail the key figures, events and meanings in agriculture, industry, astronomy, geography, biology, mathematics and other fields for tens of thousands of years. It systematically expounds the evolution of human civilization since the wise man.

Mastering the Market Cycle: Getting the Odds on Your Side
Author: Howard Marks
The legendary investor shows how to identify and master the cycles that govern the markets. This book will teach you what cycles are, what causes their rise and fall, and thus how to tell what investment moves are most likely to succeed.

The Third Pillar: How Markets and the State Leave the Community Behind
Author: Raghuram Rajan
Rajan offers up a magnificent big-picture framework for understanding how these three forces--the state, markets, and our communities--interact, why things begin to break down, and how we can find our way back to a more secure and stable plane.
