Speaker Details

Speaker: Yupana Wiwattanakantang
Affiliation: National University of Singapore
Time: 13:15–14:30

Background

This seminar will feature Dr Wiwattanakantang who will discuss the impact of unconventional monetary policy stimulus by the Bank of Japan (BOJ) through equity purchases. While BOJ purchases of equities have resulted in higher equity returns and equity issuances, Dr Wiwattanakantang will show that the transmission of the purchases to tangible capital investment is weak. She will also describe how equity purchases by the BOJ help to predict equity issuances.
