FinTech Australia

In October 2015, Australia's Fintech startup community came together to shape the vision for the association. This created an unprecedented opportunity to provide input into the development of the Turnbull Government's innovation agenda. Over the course of a month, the Fintech community collaborated and drafted a document of recommended reforms. This document was endorsed by more than 35 Fintech organisations and submitted to key government ministers for consideration.
The government’s Innovation Statement, released in December 2015, laid a solid foundation for startup-led innovation. It created further momentum for the Fintech community to enlist government support.
On 24th February 2016, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull announced the establishment of the Fintech Advisory Group to support the goal of making Australia one of the world's leading markets for financial technology innovation and investment. The reform recommendations were also formally announced alongside the formation of this council. This represented a major milestone for FinTech Australia, achieving federal government support for the Australian Fintech community.
FinTech Australia was formally incorporated on 25th November 2015 and a seven-strong, nationally-representative committee appointed at the inaugural Annual General Meeting in March 2016. FinTech Australia's inaugural CEO, Danielle Szetho, was also appointed in June 2016.
