WA Stock Exchange Index, Special Edition


DOWNLOAD  

Welcome to the annual Diggers & Dealers special edition of the Deloitte WA Stock Exchange Index (Deloitte WA Index).

Highlights

The market capitalisation of Western Australian (WA) companies which comprises the Deloitte WA Index has exhibited strong performance throughout the 12 months ended 31 May 2011, increasing in value by AU$52.5bn (36.5%) to finish at a value of AU$196.3bn

Notably, during the past 12 months, the combined value of companies in the Deloitte WA Index has exceeded the previous record high achieved immediately prior to the Global Financial Crisis in 2008/09

Keith Jones interviews Andrew Forrest, Fortescue Metals Group Ltd, about the challenges of developing and expanding Fortescue’s operations in the Pilbara

In this edition we have also highlighted a number of significant influences and areas of interest for the mining industry which include:

  • Overview of the drivers behind continuing Chinese demand for resources
  • The emergence of Africa as an important frontier for miners in WA
  • The importance of human capital to WA companies.

We acknowledge the companies that have achieved outstanding success over the past 1, 5 & 10 year periods. These companies were recognised at our Deloitte High Growth Awards evening in Kalgoorlie on Monday 1 August
