Our network

'Collaboration is at the heart of the new digital economy. Through DFAC, fintechs, along with consumer and academic representatives, work closely with regulators to inform a dynamic regulatory response based on a sound understanding of the new digital finance models, their potential benefits and risks.'

Deborah Ralston
Professor of Finance, Monash University (DFAC Chair)

'With an economy heavily skewed towards financial services, Australia has a unique opportunity to benefit from changes in consumer behaviour that are increasingly driving people to seek financial products through digital channels. The ASIC Innovation Hub ensures the local financial services industry can adapt with agility to the changing landscape.'

Toby Heap
Founding Partner, H2 Ventures

'I think it's fantastic to see ASIC working so hard to accommodate the needs and opportunities presented by Australian fintech startups, and sending a clear message that Australia's financial regulatory doors are open.'

Murray Hurps
General Manager, Fishburners
