Australian Opportunity

Why International Managers should look at the Australian Market

We believe that the Australian market offers significant opportunities for foreign-based managers looking to expand internationally.

Key aspects of the Australian market that make it appealing are as follows:

  • One of the largest pension funds markets in the world and growing, with compulsory employer contributions of at least 9.5% p.a.
  • A very sophisticated market that is prepared to consider new products and new managers.
  • A market where asset consultants are heavily involved, including familiar international names such as Mercer, Russell Investments and Towers Watson.
  • An open market in which foreign-based managers are able to compete on level terms with domestic players.
  • An English Law jurisdiction (similar to USA, UK, HK and NZ).
