Our Journey so far

October 2015

The Fintech Community rallied around urgent Policy reforms that were needed to ensure Australia remained competitive in Fintech. They collaborated on a landmark Recommended Reform Paper, endorsed by over 35 Fintech organisations, submitted to key Government Ministers.

February 2016

Following consultation on our Reform Paper, the Turnbull Government declared Fintech to be a national priority, announcing the formation of the Fintech Advisory Group to provide policy advice to Treasury and Regulators.

March 2016

FinTech Australia held its inaugural AGM and elected its first Committee, three of whom are on the Fintech Advisory Group. In June 2016, FinTech Australia announced the appointed of its inaugural CEO.

2016 and onwards

We're hardly stopped since 2016, including organising the nation's first fintech festival and industry-backed awards and driving a series of major policy and regulatory reforms
