Brandon Julio, Assistant Professor of Finance and Sungkyunkwan University's Youngsuk Yook won the award for their paper 'Policy Uncertainty, Irreversibility and Cross-border Flows of Capital'  in the Corporate Finance and Chinese Capital Markets session of the conference.

“Our paper examines how uncertainty about future government policy leads to declines in the flow of capital around the world.  The effects of the current environment of uncertainty are of great interest to both practitioners and academics working in the Chinese market.  It was a great honour to be recognized by the Chinese Finance Association for our work.”

Staged by the organisation of Chinese finance industry professionals, the 18th annual conference was aimed at enabling members, industry leaders, academic experts and government regulators to share ideas on developments in the worldwide economy and financial markets. The papers presented covered everything from the uncertainties caused by the financial crisis to investment opportunities and Chinese financial reform.
