LI Junheng runs JL Warren Capital, a China focused equity research firm based in New York. Her research utilizes high frequency, real time, big data algorithms and bottom-up, fundamental research to identify variant views and market inefficiencies in stocks, companies and economies.

She is the author of Tiger Woman on Wall Street: Winning Strategies from Shanghai to New York and Back which 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, Li Junheng 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, she has an intimate knowledge of both Chinese and American sensibilities, economies, and cultures.

Prior to founding JL Warren, Li Junheng was a senior equity analyst at Aurarian Capital Management, a long and short equity hedge fund best known for its investigative research into companies mis-priced by the marketplace.

Before joining Aurarian, Li Junheng was an investment officer in the global small/middle capitalization team at Franklin Templeton Fiduciary. Before Fiduciary, she was an investment banking analyst in Media and Telecommunications Group at Credit Suisse First Boston based in New York.

Li Junheng’s work has appeared on Forbes, Bloomberg, The Wall Street Journal, MarketWatch, Daily Beast, and Caixin, among others. She has also appeared on television and radio programs including CNBC, The Street, Bloomberg, CCTV, NPR, and Bravo.

Li Junheng received an MBA from Columbia Business School and a BA in Economics from Middlebury College (summa cum laude, with Honors in Economics).

Li Junheng is a Shanghai native and speaks fluent Mandarin and some Japanese. In her spare time, she practices yoga, travels, surfs, reads, and writes.

Junheng Li, Head of Research at JL Warren Capital, says the growth of Yum! Brands in China will make or break the stock, and she forecasts pressures for the company going forward.
