Australia’s Top 25 fintech influencers revealed

Australia’s Top 25 fintech influencers revealed has released its list of Australia’s Top 25 Fintech Influencers. The people on it work in a variety of areas within the fintech sector, including lending, venture capital, the blockchain, bitcoin, coworking spaces and hubs, the media and fintech industry bodies.

Australia has a strong history with fintech, having been recognised for embracing fintech startups and engaging in international agreements that drive innovation forward. However, without the individual voices within the fintech industry, change wouldn’t happen and innovation would be much more stagnant.

For this list, factors we considered included:

  • Editorial judgement
  • Social following
  • Industry involvement and visibility
  • Notable successes

Each of the top 25 influencers is visually represented as a superhero because they are champions of Australian fintech and push their respective industries forward. For each influencer, a superpower was chosen that matched their skills and industry.

The Australian fintech industry is booming, and according to these are the people (in no particular order) that are helping to shape it:
