Accountable: The differences that Australis Asset Advisory can provide have been based on the desire of the company to improve on current industry standard methodologies and project delivery expectations currently in the industry. For Australis, it is not just about the end value, but the whole process of getting to the deliverable stage. We believe that valuation must become a more open and traceable process to improve confidence and the reputation of the profession. This improved confidence and accountability will further benefit you through more realistic models, better collaboration and more accurate outputs to the valuation process.
Accurate: At Australis Asset Advisory, we believe more accuracy can be achieved by implementing an improved approach to the recording and analysis stages of the valuation process, and having a good quality, well sourced database. These improvements include linking existing asset management policies and/or actual examples of patterns of consumption, and providing more meaningful valuation data that can be used not just for financial reports. Our focus is on maximising the observable inputs, and providing special attention to inputs that have a significant impact on the value (such as unit rates, lives, condition, obsolescence, and residuals).
Behind the name
Terra Australis (Latin for South Land) was one of several names applied to 'Australia' in the 18th Century, until Matthew Flinders, being the first to circumnavigate the majority of the mainland coastline. The journey that Matthew Flinders made and the years spent at sea, surveying this continent is something of an inspiration. We have an appreciation for the challenges faced by these travellers, in how they navigated and sought direction from the stars - in fact the same stars we see today. Getting to this point of our careers has certainly been a rewarding and challenging journey. And whilst we are by no means explorers, we do find ourselves surveying in some of the most remote and beautiful places of our country.
We are also sometimes referred to as the 'AAA Group' (or 'Triple A Group') - mirroring our three values 'Aspiring, Accountable and Accurate.'
