What we're about
Australia has over 80 customer-owned banking organisations nationally, including mutual banks, credit unions and building societies. Collectively they manage assets of over $100 billion and serve over 4 million customers. They provide a full range of retail (and in some cases small business) financial services and are relatively rich in capital.
Australia also has 100's of innovative fintech companies in a vibrant, growing ecosystem. Many of these companies are establishing great businesses, but need to partner with existing banking organisations to access vital service layers and potential customers, and need investors to bring their ideas to market.
They are natural partners in providing greater competition in financial services. The purpose of this meetup group is to create a forum to meet and exchange opportunities.
Whatever your role and whether in a customer-owned banking organisation, a fintech or an third-party who can help these organisations, you would be very welcome.
