Significant Investor Visa / Chinese in Australia Lunch-Seminar
Wed. 3 May 2017, 12:00 pm – 2:30 pm AEST
3 May (Wednesday) Doltone House, 181 Elizabeth St, (Hyde Park), Sydney CBD
20-30 tables of ten at a sit-down lunch.
BasisPoint’s Significant Investor Visa events are now in its 5th year.
Our speakers will share insights on Chinese and Chinese-Australian attitudes towards investments, integration and engagement in Australia, including:
The impact of recent SIV high-net-worth Chinese migrants on investment and consumption in Australia
How future generations of Chinese-Australians will evolve and participate in Australian society
Assimilation within Australia…. as Australia engages further with Asia
Lessons for Chinese-Australians from post WW2 European migrant success stories
Recent SIV statistics show 206 applications made in the 6 months to December 2016, meaning Australia is on track to take around 400 high-net-worth SIV migrants per year, generating $200m for VC funds, $600m for SmallCap funds and $1200m for balancing funds each year.
As a comparison, there is just $450m in VC funds in Australia awaiting deployment (AFR 3 May), so $200m in SIV-VC funds is almost half of the VC funds available.
