Residential Builders + Corporate Finance 09 October 2017

Residential Builders: Since the 60’s this iconic industry has literally redefined the landscape in Western Australia’s urban areas, especially Perth. WA is home to several of the nation’s biggest home builders and we use industry data to find who is who is this important driver of economic activity.

Biggest Exporters + ICT Infrastructure 23 October 2017

Biggest Exporters: Australia is an exporting nation and Western Australia is the biggest exporting state - with around half the nation’s merchandise exports leaving WA. This is big business, conducted by multi-nationals, local corporates and a host of private and not-for-profit players. Check out who does big business with the rest of the world.

ICT infrastructure: This feature analyses the state of ICT infrastructure in WA, including the roll-out of the NBN, the role of fixed line and wireless networks, and the growing demand for data, and the impact on both specialist service providers and the business community at large.

Property - Commercial Developers + Health Care 06 November 2017

Property - Commercial Developers: Guide to trends and issues in WA’s property sector, most notably major commercial buildings. As part of this analysis we will examine where the next big commercial construction projects might be and highlight who owns our biggest buildings. The key focus is the office market but the feature provides a broad range of property information beyond the high rise of the CBD.

Health Care: The biggest employer in the state, the single biggest cost to government, an unusually competitive space between listed, private and not-for-profit companies, a major innovator and user of technology - health care is a diverse and fascinating industry which rarely gets the attention it deserves. 


CEO Salary Survey + Junior Mining and Exploration 20 November 2017

CEO Salary Survey: In a comprehensive review from a database unmatched by any other local publisher, Business News analyses the remuneration and performance of Western Australia’s listed company CEOs. This is a no holds barred examination of who has earned the most, compared with the results of the business they have led. 

Junior Mining and Exploration: Western Australia is a mining state but, more importantly, it is a global hub for junior explorers and smaller mining companies that use Perth as a corporate base for their ventures throughout the world. We analyse the trends in the sector and check the health of this vital driver of the state’s economy.

Wealth Creators + WA Dynasties 04 December 2017

Wealth Creators: Using public data, including the share holdings of WA company directors, and other less accessible information, we build WA’s own rich list to show not who has wealth but who created it. These are the people who had ideas or were willing to back them to build businesses that keep our state moving. 

WA Dynasties: With a rich history of entrepreneurial individuals and families there is certain WA flavour to our market. Business News looks at the families that helped shape our state and have stood the test of time by retaining long-term ownership of their assets. Join us on this journey.
