The KPMG Fintech Landscape 2020, which captures the breadth and depth of fintech startups active and headquartered in Australia, provides a snapshot of the innovation taking place across the financial services technology sector. It shows a total of 733 currently active fintechs, up from 629 when the landscape was last released in September 2019.

Key insights from the KPMG Fintech Landscape 2020 include:

  • An increase in the number of fintechs within the lending category supported by new players in both consumer and SME lending sub-sectors, as well as an increase in Buy-Now-Pay-Later providers
  • Growth in blockchain and cryptocurrency-associated fintechs matches the general support and interest in the technology asset class across the past year.
  • The evolution of the neobank sector, even though a number of neobanks have been impacted by delays to APRA’s licensing process
  • Insurtech maintaining momentum on the back of impressive growth in 2019

The landscape is open to new submissions and suggested changes.

For any requests, please contact Braedon Reilly, Fintech Lead at KPMG High Growth Ventures or Dan Teper, Partner and Head of Fintech Australia.
