  • Summary
Join the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX), corporate advisers and Silicon Valley-based Pivotal Systems (PVS, A$330m mkt cap) to learn why and how 45 US companies have listed and raised capital in Australia.

Australia has the world’s fourth largest pension market, with $2 trillion AUM, and a highly active stock market for growth companies. ASX ranks in the top 10 exchanges globally by market capitalisation, capital raised and number of listed companies. An ASX listing offers more flexible access to funding and a potentially lower cost of capital versus Series B, later stage private rounds and the US public markets.

Technology and healthcare were the top performing ASX sectors over the past 12 months, and include multi-billion dollar leaders such as Xero (XRO), WiseTech Global (WTC) and ResMed (RMD).

Hear from an expert panel, comprising the CEO of Pivotal Systems and key members of the Australian capital markets ecosystem – ASX, Shaw and Partners, BDO and Maddocks – followed by Q&A and a networking reception.
