Research on the Ownership Structure and Market Value of Chinese Listed Commercial Banks
Abstract: In recent years, the external Sino-US trade war has become increasingly fierce. Domestic Internet Finance has a strong impact on Chinese traditional Banking Industry, which has severely squeezed the business growth model of commercial banks with interest rate differentials, making the domestic financial industry increasingly competitive. The environment at home and abroad is becoming more and more complex, and the Chinese banking industry is facing a severe transformation crisis and challenge. This paper analyzes the market value of China’s listed commercial banks by arranging the data of China’s listed commercial banks, using descriptive analysis, correlation analysis and regression analysis, then studies the relationship between ownership structure and market value of listed commercial banks in China from three aspects: ownership concentration check-and-balance of ownership and separation of ownership and control. It is concluded that the shareholding ratio of state-owned shares in China’s listed commercial banks should be reduced, and social capital should be introduced. At the same time, the state should seek more control chain to strengthen the control over Chinese listed commercial banks.
