After more than three decades of economic development and reform, China’s GDP is ranked second only to the United States’ – a huge jump from its 10th place in 1978. During the same period, China’s financial sector has experienced explosions of growth. And the growth in the financial sector seems to be unaffected by the Asian financial crisis of 1997 and the worldwide financial crisis of 2008.

This extraordinary phenomenon raises the question of how financial risk management in China has been conducted. The aim of this special issue is to answer this and other related questions.
