FinTech Australia inks deal with EY, secures new corporate partners
FinTech Australia has broadened its agreement with Ernst & Young which paves way for greater involvement and support in areas like events and research projects.
The announcement comes as FinTech Australia continues to secure new corporate partners to support “the ecosystem”.
Its current partners include: Amazon Web Services (AWS), VISA, Bank of Queensland, National Australia Bank and BDO. AWS and VISA joined as partners earlier this year.
EY works with FinTech Australia on an annual report that gauges key trends in fintech.
“Today’s announcement not only confirms EY’s commitment to the Australian fintech ecosystem, but deepens it,” FinTech Australia CEO Rebecca Schot-Guppy said.
FinTech Australia has been involved in other areas such as pushing for reform and according to Schot-Guppy, the vast recommendations from the recent Senate inquiry into fintech were based on the association’s suggestions.
These included the alteration of R&D tax incentives scheme, establishing a competition mandate, the consumer data right rollout and early-stage investment scheme.
