Why Australia?

Australia has a well-established financial services sector that holds a strong position in the APAC region with a stable regulatory ecosystem. Australia continues to establish itself as a global hub of fintech innovation, which has rapidly accelerated throughout the pandemic driven by the need for large incumbents and fintech's alike to evolve and embrace digital models to meet the needs of consumers accessing financing online.

Emerging areas of opportunities for UK fintech companies include (but not limited to); payment technologies, lending, wealthtech and insurtech, open banking, ESG and sustainability, alternative assets, buy-now pay-later, data insights (AI and predictive), rewards and loyalty innovation and convergence of instore/online purchasing.
