AJS Business Series 2010
Investing in Australia-Managing Political Risk
Featuring our speaker
n Michael Priebe, Founding Partner of Statecraft
Held in conjunction with the Japanese Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Sydney (JCCI), this event will focus on the political and regulatory risks of investing in Australia.
The previous Federal Government’s intention to tax mining industry “super profits”, a hung parliament and the growing strength of the Australian Greens party all seem to point to a change in the investment environment. Australia has always rated highly as a safe and stable destination for foreign investment, but there are increasing political and regulatory risks emerging across a range of sectors.
Success or failure of an investment may boil down to how well these risks are identified and managed before funds are committed. Michael Priebe, Managing Director of Statecraft (an AJS corporate member), is a professional in the field. He will provide an overview on where such risks are likely to emerge and will give us practical examples of what can be done to manage such risks. Don’t miss out on Michael’s special insights into a very topical subject.
The discussion will include time for Q&A, followed by networking over drinks.
