ANZ Bank invests heavily in the future of Fintech

By Business Review Australia Staff

To the layman, the banking industry may mean little more than a place to hold money. To the professional banker, banking means a chance to improve the assets of personal investments while creating opportunities for those willing to participate in the process of making money. Ultimately, financial success relies on the ability to see such a windfall investment opportunity as an upcoming company like Fintech has to offer.

Small Business

As a banking institution, ANZ leads the way with supporting small local businesses and applying its services toward their needs. When Fintech needed support to get a new concept off the ground and become the successful business they are today, ANZ Bank was ready to help not just with the local branch as was the case before the days of the internet, but with the same cutting edge technology which made Fintech a legitimate business proposition.

Tech Start-Ups

When ANZ showed its support for Fintech, it showed how the bank is ahead of the curve with support for a burgeoning new business model known as the tech startup. Although ANZ is a relatively small bank comparative to others, it has a wide vision which allows for the introduction and use of technologies as they become available to the businesses with the foresight to use them. Fintech set the mold for how technology is used to conduct business in the modern age, and with the support of ANZ were able to expand their business model in ways which were useable by new companies even as new technological innovations became available as business opportunities.

Conclusion

The banking industry is different than it was 50 years ago, as all businesses are with the introduction of the internet and accompanying technologies. ANZ has been a leader in the field as it shows how to quickly adapt to the changing business environment. ASstech start-ups continue to develop, organizations like Fintech are sure to find continued success with the support of larger established companies and banking systems such as ANZ.
