It was a privilege for Tier One People to sponsor the awards and CTO of the year category.
Congratulations to Jins Kaduthodil of Incent Loyalty on winning the CTO of the year award.
Fintech Startup of the Year went to Trade Ledger. Congratulations to Martin McCann and Matt Born who are taking their open banking solution global.
Fintech Leader of the Year went to Katherine McConnell of Brighte, also winners of Innovation in Lending.
The attendees were encouraged by a heartfelt rallying call by Treasurer, Scott Morrison MP, expressing his support for the Fintech community. He made it explicitly clear the Open Banking programme is a Government priority. Politicians are relying on the Fintech industry to make the programme a success. If successful, it could well be the template for all future Australian innovation. Scott Morrison has put a flag in the sand with Australia’s Open Banking initiative set to go live 1st July 2019. He seems personally and politically invested in Open Banking and committed to supporting the Fintech community.
