Monoova, Nano Digital Home Loans, BTC Markets, Wagestream, Tanggram and Up are among the top winners of the seventh annual FinTech Australia Finnie Awards.

For the first time in the history of the awards, no company won more than one award, and FinTech Australia CEO Rehan D’Almedia said it demonstrated the industry’s growth in recent years.

“When I first started working on the Finnies, we had a handful of companies clearing different prices,” he said.

“Thanks to the level of competition and diversity in the market, companies are now lucky enough to win a single prize. It’s yet another indicator of how much the industry has grown and matured in such a short time.”

Payments company Moonova was recognized as FinTech Organization of the Year, while Nano Digital Home Loans won Emerging FinTech Organization of the Year. Tanggram won the Best Workplace Diversity Award.

Dominic Pym from Up was named FinTech Leader of the Year, while Caroline Bower, CEO of BTC Markets, won Female FinTech Leader of the Year. Wagestream co-founder and CEO Josh Vernon was named Emerging FinTech Leader of the Year.

Reinventure co-founder and partner Simon Cant was the first person to be inducted into the Finnies Hall of Fame, alongside industry leaders Airwallex and Afterpay.

Cant is MD of Westpac-backed Reinventure, Australia’s first dedicated fintech VC firm, which launched in late 2013 with $150 million to invest in early stage fintechs. He was also the co-founder and chairman of Fintech Australia.

D’Almedia said they couldn’t think of a more worthy person for the Hall of Fame.

“Many of our winners this year, such as Flare and Zai, are thriving thanks to the early support of Reinventure,” he said.

“While many fintechs have received funding from Simon’s firm, countless others have benefited from his advice and guidance over the years. He also played an important role in getting initial government support and drawing attention to fintech and regulation. Simon is a real asset to our ecosystem.”
