Renewable, Clean Energy – What Australia can learn from Nordic/Northern European Countries, 30 Sept

Join us together with our Northern European neighbours for an online enlightening and invigorating talk with Andrew Wear.

In the months and years ahead, as we seek to rebuild our economy after COVID-19, Australia can take inspiration from Nordic and Northern European countries – many of which have been achieving outcomes that far surpass ours.

Norway not only has the highest living standards in the world but also extremely low social and economic inequality. It manages to achieve these outcomes by fostering participation in the labour market, investing in education, redistributing income through the tax and welfare system and investing the proceeds of its oil and gas revenue as well as leading in renewable, clean energy. And it’s neighbour, Denmark, has now managed to halve its per capita carbon emission while Iceland, by supporting the involvement of fathers in parenting and by legislating to secure equal pay, has now topped the gender equality rankings for a decade and counting.

Through long-term investment in renewable electricity, energy efficiency and sustainable cities, solutions do exist – we just need to know where to find them. By understanding how other countries around the world – the Nordic and Northern European countries in particular – we are working to crack the big problems which help illuminate the sort of action required to make a difference in Australia. Join Andrew Wear at this exclusive online event, where he will explore and discuss these ideas and more.

Date: Wednesday 30 September

Time: 4.00 – 5.00 pm

Summary of Crypto Currency Webinar 17 September

Cryptocurrencies are used to conduct international financial transactions online without interference from financial institutions and governments. The interesting thing about cryptocurrency is that the industry is still very young and that the space is always evolving. New cryptocurrencies are popping up every day with certain projects clearly using blockchain technology better than others.

This webinar was an introduction to cryptocurrency, we talk about the history and background and answered questions like, what is cryptocurrency and why was it invented? We got an insight into the industry and market of cryptocurrency and the difference between fintech and cryptocurrency. We focused in on the largest cryptocurrency Bitcoin, explaingin how it works and why Bitcoin the largest.

The session was moderated by Linda Stanojevic, Director Avenue’s PMO, Sydney and our topic experts were:

  • Henrik Andersson, Chief Investment Officer at Apollo Capital, Melbourne 
  • Eric Wall, Chief Investment Officer at Arcane Assets, Sweden
  • Kalle Rosenbaum, Author and Bitcoin Consultant at Popeller AB, Sweden

Here are some more of the questions covered in the session:

  1. Crypto Currencies have been criticised for having no intrinsic value since they are not backed by anything. However, on a philosophical level, one can argue that gold does not have much intrinsic value either. In the end, the value of something is determined by what someone else is willing to pay for it. However, with Crypto Currencies the situation is more complicated. The barriers to entry are not too high with more than 4,000 cryptocurrencies in existence. In theory, you can have an infinite number of different Crypto Currencies with an infinite number of Crypto Coins created. Does this have an implication for the long-term value of Crypto Currencies?
  2. While 4,000+ Crypto Currencies are in existence, most of them are micro caps. Is there a long-term argument for having that many Crypto Currencies in the market? In other words, why would you look beyond the largest Crypto Currencies? 
  3. Different Asset Classes appeal to different type of investors. Stocks and bonds are bought by both retail and professional/institutional investors. Investments in Venture Capital, Private Equity and FX (currencies) are usually done by professional/institutional investors. What is driving the investment in Crypto Currencies? What type of investment horizon do investors hold?
  4. When investing in traditional Asset Classes such as stocks, advanced investors do stock picking while less advanced buy funds or ETFs. Are there fund/ETF equivalents in the Crypto Market? Are they viable investment vehicles considering counter-party risks?
  5. Similar to the traditional Finance Industry where brokerages have gone bust (Lehman Brothers), so have also Crypto Currency brokerages/exchanges gone bust. What recommendations do you have regarding selecting exchanges/brokerages for Crypto Currency trading? Is a cold wallet a must? 
  6. Currency trading is significant among institutional and professional investors. Besides so-called Stable Coins that have been specifically designed to peg their value against something else (e.g. US Dollars), Crypto Currencies have exhibited extreme volatility over time. Bitcoin value to AUD changed by $4 just in July. Do you see Crypto Currencies such as Bitcoin start stabilising and behaving like normal currencies? In what time frame and why?
