Fintech Fight

Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia and India are all battling to keep their noses in front as the financial technology industry continues to grow. With the lifting of restrictions Japan will also soon begin pouring money into the burgeoning sector, while China is already an established player.

The Fintech Australia membership comprises over 70 startups, venture capital funds, hubs and accelerators across Australia that specialise in fintech. Their vision is to make Australia one of the world's leading markets for fintech innovation and investment.
