Tiger Woman on Wall Street is both the remarkable, dramatic story of one woman’s rise in the global business world and a savvy guide to finance and investing. With unflinching candor, Junheng Li tells how a brainy, focused, highly driven Chinese girl who admired Scarlett O’Hara’s indomitable spirit drew on the best of both worlds to go where few women have gone before: straight to the top of the financial industry. With her extensive personal and business experience in both China and the United States, Li has an intimate knowledge of both Chinese and American sensibilities, economies, and cultures.
Tiger Woman on Wall Street takes you behind the scenes of the world’s most important financial markets, from the daily routine of trading to high-level meetings with executives, policy makers, and analysts. Li conveys in fascinating and revealing detail how she arrives at her investing decisions—a powerful combination of keen intuition, meticulous due diligence, and razor-sharp analysis. Li argues that the current Chinese business growth model has hit a wall and shows why investors need to keep both eyes firmly open when investing—especially in China.
Striking a rare balance between page-turning storytelling and practical investing guide, Tiger Woman on Wall Street shows how one woman has navigated her way through and thrived in this increasingly complicated and exciting period in modern financial history.
Tiger Woman on Wall Street includes a detailed industry and macro discussion that will be helpful to students of China and investment alike. The book analyzes Chinese local government financing vehicles and the Chinese banking and shadow banking sector in comparison to the American and European banking sector. It provides a detailed look at sectors including education, luxury retail, baby formula, search engines, e-commerce and internet, and solar and renewable energy.

Brands, Richemont, BYD, Sina, Baidu, Qihoo, Google, Garmin, American Superconductor Corporation, Apple, Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, China Construction Bank, Ctrip, E-Commerce China Dangdang, Sino-Forest, Swatch Group, and LVHM.
