Innovate Finance Global Summit 2020 kicks off in London on April 20 and Tier One People will be there. Dexter Cousins will be part of a Fintech Australia and UK Department of Industry and Trade delegation, on a mission to strengthen ties with the UK Fintech sector.
The delegation marks the second anniversary of the UK-Australia Fintech Bridge. And what better way to celebrate than attending the UK Fintech Industries main event of the year?
The UK-Australia Fintech Bridge launched in 2018 to support startups from Australia and the UK. In two years trade in both directions has increased. Tier One People have played a significant role in helping Fintech startups expand in Australia and the UK.
UK DIT Australian Fintech Bridge.
The Fintech Bridge plays a key role in helping UK Fintech successfully launch in Australia and Australian Fintech launch in Britain. And this years trade delegation provides an opportunity for Aussie founders to ‘plug-into’ the worlds leading Fintech ecosystem.
It’s a chance to showcase the exciting innovations and opportunities in Australia to a global audience.
With Brexit now finally behind us, our UK cousins are not waiting to strike new trade agreements. Tier One People recently attended an invite-only round-table discussion with HRM Treasury, The Australian British Chamber of Commerce and Fintech leaders.
Open Banking is generating lots of interest from UK Fintech and represents a HUGE opportunity for Australia if we can get it right. Approximately 40% of the Tier One People client base is now UK based.
It’s an honour to be invited by Fintech Australia and develop relationships with the UK Fintech sector. It is clear from our discussions with both Fintech Australia and UK DIT talent is a critical component of any trade agreement.
