Industry Series: Fintech

PART ONE: How COVID-19 has Brought the Future Forward in Australia, Asia and America

In Partnership with Emerging Payments Association Asia


About the Webinar

AmCham and the Emerging Payment Association Asia (EPA Asia) are collaborating in a three-event series looking at the effect COVID-19 has had on the financial service industry and how financial technology firms are living through these unprecedented times.

Financial Technology (FinTech) is at the centre of digital product and service delivery advances across many industries. Australian companies are constantly adopting and applying fintech solutions to grow their businesses, create jobs and provide the services demanded by their customers.

In part one of this webinar series, we present Senator Andrew Bragg, Chair of the Australian Senate Select Committee on Financial Technology and Regulatory Technology, in conversation with Ben Heap, Executive Chairman of fintech-focused venture capital fund H2 Ventures.

They will discuss how the current pandemic has impacted the industry and the Parliamentary inquiry, and take questions from the participants. Having recently recovered from COVID-19 himself, the senator will be uniquely positioned to provide insights during this health crisis.

In addition to our webinar series, FinTech Australia has partnered with Tier One People to launch a FinTech Talent Market in response to increasing job losses during the COVID-19 crisis. The marketplace, run through LinkedIn Groups, aims to connect people in the FinTech community who have lost their jobs to FinTech companies with jobs. Apply to join the programme.
