This program will introduce finance industry professionals to Australia's investment markets with an emphasis on macroeconomics, fixed-income investments, foreign direct investment, and private equity. The speakers include a former senior economist from the Reserve Bank of Australia who will give the economic and investment outlook for 2012 and beyond; a seasoned fixed-income executive who will discuss the attractive yields in Australia compared to the extremely low yields that prevail in other developed economies at present; and a trade commissioner who is also a seasoned private equity industry executive who will address the topic of private equity and the environment for foreign direct investment in Australia.
Attend to meet senior Australian government and private sector financial institution leaders who will explain the market and serve as an access point for further involvement in investment opportunities in Australia.
