Australia has entered its 28th year of consecutive annual economic growth, setting a new record among developed economies for uninterrupted expansion. Australia also has a thriving capital market and the 4th largest pension market globally at US$2 trillion, driven by mandated superannuation savings.

This combination of steady growth and large pension market, together with Australia's well developed legal and regulatory environment has resulted in reputation as a low-risk but vibrant place to do business. With this in mind, BDO are seeing an ever-increasing number of US Private Equity Firms investing in Australia or considering listing their portfolio companies on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX).
Transaction professionals from both BDO Australia and Shaw and Partners will join us for an interactive panel discussion that will cover:
  • Accessing Australia’s capital markets to invest in US growth companies via a listing on the ASX; and
  • US capital investing in Australian growth companies.
Q&A will follow the presentation and we hope you can join us for this highly interactive and informative event.
8:00 AM to 8:30 AM – Breakfast and Networking
8:30 AM to 9:30 AM – Presentation and Q&A
