Daimler Chrysler Financial Services in Australia - A market analysis by Linda Schmid
The purpose of this report is to apply theoretical approaches learned at University to a practical environment. The company which was evaluated is DaimlerChrysler, in specific, DaimlerChrysler Financial Services in Australia. A market analysis of Australia was undertaken to assess if this market would be beneficial for the company. The approach also points out trends and aspects which may effect DaimlerChrysler's operations in Australia and the Asian/Pacific region. The conclusion was drawn that DCFS's presence in Australia is important and necessary for the company in order to act globally. The position in a westerner country can be used as a springboard or base to Asia. Especially because the Asia Pacific region has been identified as a key part of DaimlerChrysler's global growth strategies.
