Emerging FinTech is redefining the way we borrow, lend, save, spend, store and transfer money. Disruptive technologies are revolutionising traditional financial services, creating opportunities for start up entrepreneurs and corporate innovators.

Our Purpose

The New Zealand Financial Innovation & Technology Association (FinTechNZ) is here to help connect, promote and advance the trends shaping the FinTech ecosystem.  We are an industry working group whose key purpose is to actively contribute to the prosperity of New Zealand through financial innovation.

We aim to helping New Zealand FinTech businesses succeed by providing a collaborative voice, creating connections, promoting FinTech to sector members, government, public and international community.  In supporting international growth we endeavour to advocate, attract and develop talent, with a view to increase export opportunities.  FinTechNZ also provides thought leadership for the FinTech sector.
