International co-operation

Are you an Australian fintech business looking to expand overseas?

ASIC has signed international cooperation agreements with some of its financial regulatory counterparts that are designed to break down barriers to market entry.

If you’re eligible, we can formally refer your fintech business. This could help you meet the right people, set up important first meetings, and receive informal assistance in different regulatory environments.
