Pitcher Perspective: Automotive industry meets the market

Pitcher Perspective: Automotive industry meets the market

Welcome to Pitcher Perspective, where we take you beyond the numbers and go in-depth on the current issues affecting the business sector.

Even though we’re accountants and advisors, we’re endlessly curious about finding better opportunities and creating better outcomes for your business. We recognise that an important piece of the puzzle is providing you with the information to help you make the right decisions.

In this special episode, we are having an extensive look into automotive industry in relation to the electric vehicle (EV) space. Leading the discussion is Wealth Management Partner, Jordan Kennedy, alongside Macroeconomist, Cameron Curko and Motor Industry Services Lead Partner, Steven Bragg.

Together they look at,

  1. The major leaders in the EV sector: their performance, their short-term vs long-term strategies to increase the sale of EV’s.
  2. EV transition across global markets: what challenges are American brands facing in marketing EV’s compared to manufacturing hubs such as China.
  3. Australia’s infrastructure: how does the Australian government’s investment in EV transition compare to the United States, the financial viability of owning an EV in comparison to petrol.
  4. The true value of Tesla: the vehicle’s appreciation value over time, how the resale prospects of EV’s subsequently affect the longevity of these vehicles.
  5. The evolving structure of the motor industry: the popularity of a direct-to-consumer model, the role of dealerships in face of EV’s, the safety implications of excluding dealerships.

In a world where clarity and peace of mind are more important than ever, we are here to help you determine what is real and valuable and provide our perspective. Because business is never just business. And every one of us is here to make sure it stays personal.

We encourage you to take a break, grab a coffee and have a listen via the video below or Spotify.
