Brief description of call: In late October, a U.S. Department of Commerce-certified trade mission of U.S.-based venture capital and private equity firms will visit Sydney and Melbourne to meet with Australian superannuation and placement firms. In anticipation of the event, the DOC and Embassy Canberra will host a direct line webinar to encourage potential participants to join the mission and give a general overview. The program will include a discussion from the Ambassador about the local pension market as well as a possible Q&A on the local superannuation market. The program will also possibly include discussion from a local Superannuation industry expert.
