Welcome to Basis Point
Basis Point (founded in 1996 by David Chin) provides business intelligence and networking opportunities for participants in the investment & financial markets in Australia & Asia.
We cover three areas which are increasingly inter-related due to ‘China’s disruption’ as a major supplier of capital in global markets, and as a major trading partner with Australia.
These three areas are:
- Significant Investor Visa (SIV) investments and China’s HNW private investments in Australia
- The growing Australia-China property, agri and tourism development opportunities
- Funds and private capital sources including hedge funds, SMSFs, boutique funds, VC funds, proprietary trading /derivatives and Family Offices, especially with an Australia-China and Australia-Asia connection
