One of Hong Kong’s most successful entrepreneurs and the founder of the largest independent investment bank in the Far East, Timothy Beardson is uniquely positioned to clarify fact from fiction in the trends, conditions, and power brokers poised to fire up or stall the Asian focal point for 21st century growth, transformation, and — potentially — conflict. An integral part of Hong Kong’s economic ascendance who has lived and worked in Asia for more than 35 years, Beardson brings insight, intelligence, and extensive experience to offer a window into this rapidly changing region that wields worldwide influence. In his new book, a nuanced, first-hand look at China, STUMBLING GIANT: The Threat to China’s Future (Yale University Press; Spring 2013), Beardson boldly counters the widely held predictions of the country’s near-certain rise to global supremacy. Timothy Beardson founded and ran Crosby Financial Holdings, which at its height employed 650 staff in 17 cities in 13 countries from New York to Beijing, with an annual transaction volume of US $20 billion. It was the first international investment bank to open in China, Thailand, and Malaysia and the only foreign bank invited to participate in the working party to set up the Shanghai Stock Exchange. Beardson and Crosby advised governments, corporations, and financial institutions on political, strategic, economic, and investment issues regarding Asia and the global economy.
