About the 4th FinTech Summit 2017

We are very excited to be running the 4th 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, InsureTech, robo-advice; and we’ll also be covering bank-fintech collaboration, the Bank’s corporate VCs and much more.

We put FinTech firms and FinTech entrepreneurs first. This event is for the ‘eco-system’ of fintech; from fintech entrepreneurs to finance professionals, investors, bankers, lawyers, and other tech 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.
