Techfoliance and The Fintech Twins are travelling together to meet game changers in finance around the world. We want to help you understand the potential that these technologies could have in people’s life in every part of the world.

At a global level, FinTech is an opportunity to position Australia as a leading hub in Asia pioneering global initiatives in blockchain, cybersecurity, international settlements or big data. The mining boom being over, Australia could export not only gold but its financial services expertise to maintain its footprint in Asia.

The Government is backing FinTech both nationally and internationally with the launch of ‘landing pads’ hosting Australian FinTech start-ups in Israel, Singapore, Shanghai, London or Berlin. The conditions are in place in Australia for a great FinTech ecosystem to emerge.
