Hawksford hosts: The experts series

Hawksford invites you to join us in the first of our expert series.

With a new National Government, a growing economy, high levels of available capital, an effective vaccination rollout and the easing of travel restrictions, Australia has a firm foundation for investors to originate and execute Australian deals with confidence. 

Hear from our guest speakers and experts who will be sharing their take on the business outlook in Australia, particularly investing in Victoria and New South Wales, as well as hiring in Australia. Invest Victoria is the investment facilitation government agency of the State of Victoria in Australia. 

In this session, Jeremy Blackshaw, Partner and Head of our International Practice, will touch on themes including:

  • The continued resilience of Australia’s private capital market.
  • The main market sectors and industries attracting foreign investment and industries likely to benefit from pent up demand as the borders re-open.
  • Other areas of opportunity that exist (including distressed debt) and the role that debt funds will play in the Australian market.
  • Likely implications of rising energy prices and inflation, and the withdrawal of emergency financial support measures despite investor optimism.

MinterEllison’s 2022 Private Capital Report reflects the optimism of private capital dealmakers about the year ahead, with 42% citing Australia as their top market when looking for Asia Pacific opportunities and 77% flagging increasing investments in Australia during 2022-2023. 

Australia’s friendly business environment comes with a large talent pool comprised of highly skilled professionals. While there are plenty of opportunities awaiting your company, expanding to Australia comes with challenges such as employment regulations, compliance risks, and cultural nuances.
