CKGSB MBA Professor Talk—-The Impact of Interest Rate Liberalization on Chinese Banks

The banking system is called on to provide both growth and stability for the economy and change is viewed with caution. Nowhere is this more true than for the cost of borrowing, interest rates.

In recent years, Chinese banks have witnessed a dramatic shift in this area as they moved away from strict state mandates to responding to the market. The 2011 Wenzhou private lending crisis renewed efforts for interest rate liberalization reform which had been long shelved. In July 2012, the People’s Bank of China declared asymmetric interest rate cuts for the first time, foreshadowing the start of deposit and loan interest rate liberalization.

As interest rate policy effects consumers, businesses, and the vitality of the banking system as a whole, what do these changes mean?

Join Prof. Ouyang Hui on December 19th as he analyzes the changes in banking industry structure and profitability during the American and Japanese interest rate marketization reforms and forecasts what shocks to expect in the future with Chinese interest rate marketization.
