FinTech Australia has appointed: earlier Federal Government adviser Nick Kavass as first policy leader.

Kavass brings nearly a decade of experience with government agencies including The Commonwealth Treasury and ASIC. Most recently, he was a policy advisor to former Deputy Treasurer and Housing Minister Michael Sukkar.

The new role will coordinate with policy partners and members to help formulate and advance FinTech Australia’s policy agenda. This includes: payment policies, the ongoing rollout of the CDR, regulation of Buy Now Pay Later companies, regulation of crypto assets, and government support for the fintech community during turbulence in the venture capital market.

FinTech Australia General Manager Rehan D’Almedia said it was an important appointment for the organization.

“With a new government in power, we want to make our policy support for our members even stricter and build on the extensive foundation the organization has built over the years,” he said.

“Nick’s experience at two key agencies that interact with the ecosystem – Treasury and ASIC – make him invaluable in helping to formulate our policy agenda.”

Kavass said he had discussed policy issues with FinTech Australia for several years and watched his lobbying efforts shape the government’s stance on key regulatory issues.

“I look forward to working with Rehan and the wider fintech community to navigate what will be a complex policy framework for the sector,” he said.

“I suspect I will be meeting many of our members at Intersekt in September, who will set the policy agenda for our work over the next 12 months.”

Kavass’ appointment comes as tickets to FinTech Australia’s annual conference Intersekt went on sale two months before the event, which is expected to sell out again.

The event will feature more than 40 panels, featuring speakers from Treasury, ASIC, Mastercard, Visa, Reinventure, X15, Austrade, Worldline, Trade Ledger, Frollo, Basiq, Envestnet Yodlee, FrankieOne, Shaype, Monoova, Novatti, Experian and many more Lake.

Intersekt will be held September 7-8 at the Grand Hyatt Melbourne. Early bird tickets are on sale at the Intersect website.
