Established in Sydney in 2009, CLSA is one of the leading institutional equity brokers in the country.

CLSA Australia leverages the depth and breadth of CLSA’s global platform and direct access to China, through parent company CITIC Securities, to provide investors with analysis of Australian companies and market trends in the context of the Asia-Pacific region.

Independent equity research, superior trading execution, investment advice and award-winning corporate access offer a differentiated proposition for investors and corporates.

In 2015, CLSA Australia’s services were expanded to include Corporate Advisory under CLSA.


CLSA Australia provides broking, research, corporate finance and capital markets services from offices in Sydney and Melbourne.


Global Equities

CLSA Australia provides equity research, research sales and sales trading services for international and domestic institutional investors. We have dedicated Australian sales teams in Hong Kong, London, New York and Sydney providing global investors access to the Australian market 24/7.


Corporate Advisory

CLSA advises corporates on cross-border transactions between Australia and Asia, as well as servicing domestic clients which count some of Australia’s largest companies. The corporate finance team of highly experienced banking professionals has more than 100 years of combined experience in M&A, equity issuance and debt capital market services.


Award-winning research on the companies and issues impacting the Australian market.

CLSA Australia’s award-winning equity research provides an independent and differentiated view on more than 160 Australian listed companies across 20 sectors, or more than 90% of the ASX200 by market capitalisation. Our analyst team focuses on in-depth and long-term research, drawing on industry contacts and leveraging CLSA’s extensive footprint throughout Asia (and particularly China). In addition to company and sector coverage, local and regional thematic research further differentiates our offering.

Corporate Access

Bespoke and differentiated access is our speciality.

CLSA Australia provides global investor’s access to Australia’s leading corporations and investors through a programme of Investor Forums, access days, corporate roadshows and our ‘On the Road with CLSA’ tours. Our Corporate Access team ranked No. 2 in Asiamoney for Best Roadshows and Company Visits (2015).

We frequently take Australian corporates on the road across Asia, the Americas, Europe and the United Kingdom to meet with institutional investors on tailored non-deal roadshows and also through award-winning Investor Forums and sector-focused access days in Sydney and Melbourne.

CLSA employees contribute their individual talents and skills to make CLSA a truly dynamic, independent and forward-thinking organisation.

We all share a drive for creating value and servicing clients. We don’t look for one academic past or one previous work experience path, but the ambition to be the best.

CLSA employees are encouraged to think outside the box within our equity broking, research and investment banking areas, along with the functions that support these business lines. We encourage diversity and our employees come from all corners of the world ensuring our clients get a global perspective.

What programmes do we offer?
In 2016, CLSA Australia introduced a Graduate Programme for the first time in our Sydney office. We seek talented, curious and creative individuals to join our 12 month program targeting high achieving students in their final year or recent graduates from any discipline.

The programme provides graduates with the tools to succeed by combining formal learning, on the job experience and mentoring in either Equity Research or Sales Trading/Dealing.

Check back later in the year for further information on how you can apply for graduate roles at CLSA.
