Australia stands out as a world-class investment destination.

  • Sustained strong economic growth continues to place Australia among the top performing nations in the world
  • its legal and financial system similarly rank among the best internationally.
  • its proven regulatory and corporate governance structures and high levels of transparency,
  • the arrangements for the taxation of venture capital investments, provide offshore investors with an attractive incentive to share in this growth.

The potential of the Australian venture capital industry has been recognised by international investors. Major international players already operate venture capital firms in Australia or have developed joint ventures with local managers .
