Exclusive: Trump s big data consultant to meet Australian government

A make-shift fence can be seen out the front of a property (L) being redeveloped which has been registered by Cambridge Analytica as their Australian office in the Sydney beachfront suburb of Maroubra in Australia, March 30, 2017. David Gray

SYDNEY/SINGAPORE (Reuters) – The big data company credited with helping Donald Trump win the U.S. presidency has registered a company in Australia and plans to meet the country’s ruling conservative Liberal Party next week, according to documents and a government official.

Cambridge Analytica, which has also said its “psychographic” methods helped the successful campaign for Britain to leave the European Union, has registered an Australian office at a property currently being redeveloped in the Sydney beachfront suburb of Maroubra, corporate filings show.

The presence of Cambridge Analytica in Australia underscores its efforts to capitalize on two high profile successes in the past year and enlarge its footprint in established Western democracies.

The person named in filings as the only shareholder of Cambridge Analytica’s Australian operation, Allan Lorraine, confirmed in a telephone call he was working with the firm but declined to comment further.

Cambridge Analytica’s U.S. head office declined an interview request with the company’s global chief executive officer, Alexander Nix, to discuss its Australian plans.

Nix is scheduled to speak at an Australian data analytics conference next week and will be meeting officials from Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull’s Liberal Party.

“Senior Liberals will be talking to Mr Nix and the Cambridge Analytica team while they’re out here in Australia, and will be interested to talk with them about their capacities and what they’re offering people in the Australian political system,” said Tony Nutt, party’s federal director.

The main opposition Labor Party declined to comment.

MICROTARGETING VOTERS

Cambridge Analytica says it uses “behavioral microtargeting”, or combining analysis of people’s personalities with demographics, to predict and influence mass behavior. It says it has data on 220 million Americans, two thirds of the population.

Its London-based parent company, consumer researcher SCL Group Ltd, says it formed Cambridge Analytica in 2013 to work on the U.S. election. Cambridge Analytica worked for the campaign of failed Republican candidate Ted Cruz before signing on with Trump.

Although it has a population of only 24 million, Australia offers high sales volumes for companies which make money from elections. It has federal elections every three years, among the shortest election cycles of developed nations, and is one of the only countries with compulsory voting enforced by fines at federal, state and local government level.

The Australian arm of Cambridge Analytica has so far lodged no financial disclosures, according to regulatory records, suggesting it has not traded in the country despite being established before the federal election in 2016 and several state elections.

While profiling would-be voters and targeting messaging is nothing new, Cambridge Analytica achieved a degree of notoriety after media reports revealed the extent of its data gathering and apparent effectiveness.

“It is scary how accurate the information is you can glean from publicly available data,” said Bela Stantic, an information technology professor who runs the Big Data and Smart Analytics laboratory at Griffith University in Australia.

DIFFERENT MARKET

Still, Australian election analysts questioned whether Cambridge Analytica’s model, which involves analyzing people’s voting and party registration history, as well as social media profiles and other data, would work in Australia.

Most Australians do not register for political parties and voting histories are not recorded, while the country’s compulsory voting system also weakens the power of campaigns aimed at encouraging – or discouraging – certain demographic groups to vote.

“They might find it useful but still most political professionals in this country would be of the view that campaigns are not about motivating people to vote, it’s about banging the same message long enough that those who aren’t interested hear it,” said Antony Green, election analyst at the Australian Broadcasting Corp.

Alex Oliver, director of the polling program at non-partisan think tank the Lowy Institute, said Australian law required organizations to disclose the source of political advertising.

“I’d be concerned about the intentions and bona fides of a commercial organization which claimed to have influenced important elections through audience targeting and psychological manipulation,” Oliver said in an email.

“That practice, if indeed it could be achieved, would impinge on the proper functioning of a democratic system.”

Largest Retail Chains in Asia: China, Japan, Taiwan Biggest Retailers

Updated April 27, 2016

When comparing the revenues of the largest retail chains in Asia, the comparison is being drawn between the biggest retail chains in the countries of China. Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Russia, South Korea, Thailand, and Turkey. Even though these Asian countries have some of the largest consumer populations in the world, the retail chains in these countries are not at the top of the World s Largest Retail Companies list compiled and published each year by Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu and STORES Magazine.

There are two primary reasons for Asia’s lack of dominance in global retailing. First, even though Asian countries contain the most people, those people are not the biggest consumers. The reason they are not the biggest consumers is because they do not possess the greatest individual wealth

This might seem contradictory to the fact that Asian countries have been targeted in recent years by some of the largest luxury retail brands. But in countries like China, Japan, and Russia, there is an extremely wealthy upper class, and an extremely impoverished lower class, and not much middle class in between.

Having said that, the emerging middle class in Asian countries is growing at an accelerated rate, so not only will that create a shift in Asian retailing in general, it will create a different platform from which the largest Asian retail chains can expand both domestically and globally.

The second reason why Asian retail companies are not dominating the global retail landscape is because so much of their consuming is local and decentralized.

Unlike the retail landscape in the U.S. there aren’t massive national retail chains and retail franchises that are duplicated in every city and town of every Asian country.

The cookie cutter chain store void that exists in Asia is not coming so much from Asian based retailers as much as it is starting to be created by the largest U.S. retail chains and European based retailers.

Again, this is particularly true in the luxury retailing sector where Coach, Michael Kors and Tiffany from the U.S. and Gucci, Armani, and Louis Vuitton from Europe have established significant retail presence in high-priced Asian shopping districts.

Of course the 7-11 convenience store chain is the most ubiquitous Asian based retailer in the U.S. In recent years Japan s UNIQLO fashion retail stores have been expanding in major U.S. cities. But for the most part, Asian retailing is found in the car dealerships of auto brands like Nissan, Honda, Hyundai, and Toyota. Between the 2009 list of World’s Largest Retailers and the 2010 list, Asian retailers did not grow significantly larger, and in the case of China, Asian retailing actually dropped substantially in global retail rankings.

Each year a “Global Powers of Retailing” report is compiled by Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu and STORES Magazine. ranking retailers from all over the world according to total revenue. In 2010, the 13th annual list was released, ranking 250 retailers from 32 different countries.

What follows is the largest retail companies with headquarters in Asia – China, Hong Kong, Japan, Russia, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and Turkey. (Even though Russia and Turkey are both European and Asian countries, they are included on this Asian list.) This 2010 Global Powers of Retailing list reflects the revenue that was generated in 2009, which was still a year of intense global retailing recession.

Mamas Papas eyes China

Inside Retail Asia

UK-based Mamas Papas will soon cater to Chinese moms and babies with its first store to open in December.

The retailer and manufacturer of baby products, pushchairs, furniture and maternity wear, has signed a franchise agreement with Korean company Zero to Seven, a retailer of infant-toddler products, apparel, maternity clothes, toys and furniture, which is also running a business in China. The franchise agreement involves opening 90 stores within the next five years.

The first store will open inside the Nanjinulu Baodaxiang department store in Shanghai, taking up 3229 sqft space. Mamas Papas will also open standalone stores and a Chinese online shop which is expected to go live next year.

The retailer s entry to the Chinese market follows its recent international expansion in South Africa, Russia and Lebanon.

Mamas Papas deputy CEO Tim Maule is confident the brand will establish a strong customer base in China as shown by its popularity among Chinese customers visiting its stores in London.

“There is a growing middle class in China that wants to buy Western brands. It’s essential that we’re there,” said Maule.

Mamas Papas foray into the Chinese market will build pressure on troubled rival Mothercare whose CEO Simon Calver identified China, where it has 22 stores, as a significant market. Mothercare plans to open 50 to 80 stores across Asia annually to make up for falling profits in challenging developed markets.

But in countries like China, Japan, and Russia, there is an extremely wealthy upper class, and an extremely impoverished lower class, and not much middle class in between.

Having said that, the emerging middle class in Asian countries is growing at an accelerated rate, so not only will that create a shift in Asian retailing in general, it will create a different platform from which the largest Asian retail chains can expand both domestically and globally.

The second reason why Asian retail companies are not dominating the global retail landscape is because so much of their consuming is local and decentralized.

Unlike the retail landscape in the U.S. there aren’t massive national retail chains and retail franchises that are duplicated in every city and town of every Asian country.

The cookie cutter chain store void that exists in Asia is not coming so much from Asian based retailers as much as it is starting to be created by the largest U.S. retail chains and European based retailers.

Again, this is particularly true in the luxury retailing sector where Coach, Michael Kors and Tiffany from the U.S. and Gucci, Armani, and Louis Vuitton from Europe have established significant retail presence in high-priced Asian shopping districts.

Of course the 7-11 convenience store chain is the most ubiquitous Asian based retailer in the U.S. In recent years Japan s UNIQLO fashion retail stores have been expanding in major U.S. cities. But for the most part, Asian retailing is found in the car dealerships of auto brands like Nissan, Honda, Hyundai, and Toyota. Between the 2009 list of World’s Largest Retailers and the 2010 list, Asian retailers did not grow significantly larger, and in the case of China, Asian retailing actually dropped substantially in global retail rankings.

Each year a “Global Powers of Retailing” report is compiled by Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu and STORES Magazine. ranking retailers from all over the world according to total revenue. In 2010, the 13th annual list was released, ranking 250 retailers from 32 different countries.

What follows is the largest retail companies with headquarters in Asia – China, Hong Kong, Japan, Russia, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and Turkey. (Even though Russia and Turkey are both European and Asian countries, they are included on this Asian list.) This 2010 Global Powers of Retailing list reflects the revenue that was generated in 2009, which was still a year of intense global retailing recession.
