FinTech Australia inks collaboration agreement with EY
Ernst & Young Australia (EY) has strengthened its relationship with FinTech Australia through a new collaboration agreement which will enable further involvement in future fintech events, awards and studies into the ecosystem.
The agreement extends and broadens EY’s involvement with FinTech Australia, expanding on its current role as the key research firm behind the annual Australian Fintech Census.
FinTech Australia CEO Rebecca Schot-Guppy said: “Today’s announcement not only confirms EY’s commitment to the Australian fintech ecosystem, but deepens it.”
“The FinTech Census, created alongside EY, serves as a key piece of annual research that helps us better communicate the needs of the ecosystem to policy makers and corporate stakeholders. We look forward to working more closely with EY to find other new and innovative ways to support the fintech ecosystem.”
Meredith Angwin, FinTech Advisor, Ernst & Young Australia (EY) said: “EY has been a long-term supporter of FinTech Australia, from our collaboration on the EY FinTech Australia Census for the past four years – which has provided important insights into the development of the sector – to our involvement with the annual Intersekt Festival and other key initiatives.”
“We are pleased to now formalise that relationship, as EY and FinTech Australia continue to work together to help support the growth and evolution of the Australian fintech ecosystem.”
The announcement comes as FinTech Australia continues to secure new corporate partners to support the ecosystem. Its current partners include: Amazon Web Services (AWS), VISA, Bank of Queensland, NAB and BDO. AWS and VISA joined as partners earlier this year.
