Fintech Awards 2019

Thursday 1 August 2019, Ashurst hosted the 4th Annual Australian FinTech Awards in Sydney. It was an opportunity for the community to come together and celebrate success. 

Tier One People Sponsors Of CTO Of The Year Category.

Traditionally the awards focused on recognising grass roots, Fintech startups. With Unicorn companies like AfterPay and the rapidly growing Brighte now serious businesses, the awards symbolised the maturity of the Fintech sector in Australia.

Keynote speaker of this years awards was Todd Forest, Managing Director, nabventures.  Todd passionately spoke of the opportunities in Fintech and made the bold claim that one day a Fintech will acquire a major bank (Todd illustrating his theory with the story of AOL buying Time Warner).
