Albourne Partners, a Key Opinion Leader in the alternative investment world of hedge funds, private equity, real estate, real assets and dynamic beta, is speaking at the Investing in an Age of Superpower Rivalries seminar, organised by BasisPoint in association with Deloitte.

Lincoln Smith, a partner at Albourne (US$500 billion invested in alternatives via their clients) is joining a panel of four other KOLs in their respective fields of asset consulting, volatility trading, venture capital and China’s impact in the world, on 15 Nov in Sydney.

Besides the five factors impacting on investment markets, which were disclosed in my newsletter last week, another six determinants are:

  1. diminished trust in institutions and in the veracity of data
  2. tech driven disruption
  3. demographic impacts
  4. the rise of alternative investments
  5. the closing productivity gap between the developed and developing world, as 6.9 billion people (Africa, India, China, Asia, Middle East, Eastern Europe, South America) want to consume more of the world’s resources currently controlled by 0.7 billion in the developed world
  6. paradoxically the widening gap within the developed world between rich and poor, left-wing and right-wing, and standards of governance, integrity and civility

Meanwhile, early-bird pricing for my driverless cars (impacting on property development) seminar ends this Friday night. Details here.

Developments in driverless cars (DCs) keep coming including…

  • a US$50m pre-series A funding round for yet another Chinese DC start-up
  • a Korean car manufacturer entering a US$4 billion jv with a US DC tech firm
  • fully driverless (no safety driver) programmes to be introduce in the US shortly
  • three licences issued in China for trial commercial (geo-fenced) DC testing as the country catches up to the US
  • teleoperations testing over 5G as point of difference for DC early adoption in China
  • latest DCs in the UK, France and India
  • and more

Yet with all these developments, very little (if any) assessments have focussed on the industry sector that will have the most impact from DCs… that industry sector being property.
