BasisPoint’s Aus-China Portal will be introducing Australian investment & business opportunities ‘specific to leveraging China’s growth’ to Chinese & Australian high-net-worth & corporate investors, and fund managers such as VC, pre-IPO and small-cap funds.
The deals must have the potential to leverage China’s growth, consumption or capital. (think of Blackmores & Treasury Wine Estates etc before they grew off the back of Chinese demand). This is a point of difference from other portals.
The majority of deals will be related to Australian property development, non-bank-lending, agribusiness/food/wellness, tourism, education, healthcare/biotech, SIV & financial services, as well as their underlying technologies.
Deals & investments worth $1 – 5 million will be the most common size, with a minimum of $500,000 and max $20 million. However, there will also be a section for start-ups in the Aus-China space seeking investors.
Investments/deals can be direct, via offtake agreements, partial ownership or managed fund structures including the Significant Investor Visa.
Distribution is to my 12,000 strong database, most of whom have been receiving my Aus-China intelligence for many years. The portal is taking advantage of the 1 million+ Chinese diaspora already in Australia, who are seeking investments & deals for themselves or for clients in China. Importantly, their money is already here, as opposed to mainland Chinese investors who increasing cannot get their funds out.
Additionally, Australian HNW investors & fund managers are key portal users as they search for assets or businesses that benefit from China’s growth. Having both Australian and Chinese investors using the portal will increase competition and speed up decision-making.
Service providers to the Aus-China market are also welcome to participate. To prevent conflict of interest, BasisPoint does not provide any services outside of news/intelligence gathering, events, and this portal & its related introduction services.
Adopting Uber’s idea, ‘surge pricing’ will be implemented where early movers pay less to advertise in the portal as demand rises.
Please contact BasisPoint (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you’d like to see a portal preview and to discover the benefits as an investor, asset holder or service provider.

My latest touch-point this week concerns China’s risk to the world –which is not its economy but its financial markets. In today’s China, it’s the financial tail that wags the economic dog. China’s financial equivalent to Iraq’s WMDs (Weapons of Mass Destruction) is...read more
