PERTH, AUSTRALIA - On Monday March 28th, Australia’s leading private investment platform Wholesale Investor and AusBiotech in association with principal support partner PricewaterhouseCoopers, will host the Small Cap Showcase at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Many private and small cap ASX listed companies struggle for visibility with the focus of financial markets and media mainly concentrated on the ASX 300 and larger private companies. The Small Cap Showcase is about placing a spotlight on the companies of the future, and the CEOs who lead them.

“Capital and networks are vital to Small Cap companies," says Managing Director of Wholesale Investor Steve Torso. "We are proud to be showcasing 20 of Australia’s most innovative and diverse companies to investors, fund managers and brokers. The event provides them with a rare opportunity to speak directly with the CEO, and gain information straight from the source.”

Industry Leading Speakers and Investor Education
Investors will have the opportunity to hear from industry leaders and investors. They include:
 - Dr Ashley Bates, Head of R&D Alliances Australia/NZ, GlaxoSmithKline
   “What market sectors GSK is currently looking at for acquisition targets”

 - Glenn Cross, Chief Operating Officer, AusBiotech
   “Why large international pharmaceutical companies are looking at Australian biotechs right now”

 - Steve Torso, Managing Director, Wholesale Investor
   “Where HNW & professional investors are looking to invest over the next 12 months”

“There is considerable demand from investors seeking to take meaningful stakes in private and small-cap companies," Wholesale Investor's Reuben Buchanan says. "This is a great opportunity for up to 200 of them to meet with 20 promising companies in the one place.”
