About the 3rd FinTech Summit 2016

We are very excited to be running the 3rd Annual FinTech Summit, and delighted to be partnering with global law firm and fintech experts, Ashurst.

The FinTech Summit brings together the influential, disruptive and innovative technology companies that are redefining financial services across all areas of fintech: lending, payments, big data, crypto, blockchain, insurance & InsureTech, security, personal finance & robo-advice; and we’ll also be covering bank-fintech collaboration, funding from Seed level to VC to IPO and beyond.

We put FinTech firms and FinTech entrepreneurs first. This event is for fintech startups and entrepreneurs, as well as the ‘eco-system’ of fintech, including finance professionals, investors, bankers, lawyers, communicators, PRs, advertisers and brand builders and media professionals. The FinTech Summit and The FinTech Awards are owned and organised by Frocomm Australia; we are independent of any association, and our agenda is simple: we champion fintech.
