Collectively managing US$1.3 trillion the Australian “Supers” are the fourth biggest pool of pension savings in the world. They are active international investors with 60% of their investments overseas and no restrictions on where they invest. Add to this the long-standing linkages with Latin America through natural resource investment and Australia is a huge opportunity for capital hungry LatAm companies, funds and sovereigns.
On the direct investment side, Australian investment in Latin America continues to increase across a wide variety of sectors and asset classes. Founded on a bi-lateral interest in metals and mining, Australian ventures in Latin America now include substantial investments in clean energy, agribusiness, oil & gas, insurance, retail and infrastructure.
The Latin America Australia Investors Forum (LA-AIF) is explicitly designed to connect Latin American fund managers, corporates, financiers, advisors and government officials with their peers in Australia. LAAIF will address the rapidly evolving state of the Latin America Australia relationship, examining the pace and direction of recent investments, and the opportunities available to increase business, investment and trade.
