FinTech Australia was founded in March 2016 and is the peak body for fintech organisations in Australia. FinTech Australia is a member-driven organisation that is building an ecosystem of Australian fintechs to advance the global economy and culture.

FinTech Australia’s mission is: “We are here to build a strong community, foster connections while supporting innovation and regulation that our members require. Above all else, we are here to be the voice of the Australian fintech community.”

To support this charter, FinTech Australia and EY launched the inaugural FinTech Australia Census in 2016. It is a study designed to profile and define the industry.

In line with EY’s deep experience in fintech, coupled with the knowledge/experience of EY Sweeney, EY was commissioned to conduct a census of fintechs in Australia. A broad research program was set in place in collaboration with a FinTech Australia steering committee. In 2019, we present the fourth edition of the study. This report presents the key findings and it will act as a powerful platform for FinTech Australia when engaging with members, stakeholders, commercial partners, regulators and government departments.
