What do property developers, Chinese investors and shadow bankers have in common?
1. Are they misunderstood high-achievers providing an economic benefit to Australia, but suffering from poor public perception?
2. Will they be at BasisPoint’s 3rd annual Aus-China Property Developers, Investors and Financiers lunch on 20 November, Sydney, with 200 of their fellow high-achievers?
3. Will they be listening to the RBA’s newly appointed Head of Financial Stability Department; to a veteran developer/investor who has thrived over the property cycles since 1972; and to the founder of a Chinese-Australian diversified investment, hotelier and property group?
4. Are they happy together?
5. Or all of the above?

For nearly all of my 33-year career, I have worked amongst the ‘outsiders,’ the maligned ‘barbarians at the gates’ including the futures & derivatives sector, the hedge funds industry, and now, property developers, Chinese investors and alternative financiers.
In each case, they have ultimately become (or are becoming) an integral part of the economy. The challenge is to better understand them, and to manage their powerful impacts, or risk ending up like Argentina in the early 1900s – rich for a while, but ultimately left behind in a competitive, judgmental, fast-changing, and integrated world we cannot hide from.
