India is currently one of the fastest growing Fintech markets in the world, and is ranked amongst the highest globally in Fintech adoption rates. The Fintech sector in India is forecast to grow 20.2 percent CAGR through to 2021 and to reach approximately AUD 142.6 billion.
The Mumbai Fintech Hub in Maharashtra is located in the financial capital of India and is one of the country’s most active fintech initiatives, and this is a unique chance for Australian firms to find their niche and delve deeper into the different and growing subsectors of the Fintech market in India.
Ms. Suniti Nanda, Head of the Mumbai Fintech Hub, joins us in this exclusive session to elaborate on the role of the Mumbai Fintech Hub and their endeavour to forge an active Fintech corridor between India and Australia. The session will cover opportunities for international entrants in areas such as Wealthtech, Lending, Payments, Security and Insurtech.
In her current role, Suniti liaises with the vibrant fintech ecosystem in India and fosters accelerated co-creation & experimentations to drive innovation in creating impact at large. Before joining the Government of Maharashtra, Suniti worked with Barclays India as Director for Innovation and was instrumental in establishing Rise Mumbai – Barclay’s global Open Innovation program in India.
Suniti and Austrade is eager to hear from the Australian fintech diaspora and participants are encouraged to engage and send in their queries and comments on the Webex platform during the session.
