How FinTech can be the pathway to elevating your career

For some years now the financial services space has become heavily focused on Financial Technology (FinTech). Many entrepreneurial startups have entered (and disrupted) the space, and for the incumbents, the benefits that platform modernisation and transformation bring to their services have allowed them to build competitive differentiation.  In Australia alone, just last year CBA announced a massive $5 billion investment into FinTech to cement its position in the market as an innovator.

This announcement was made before COVID-19 struck and transformed the way that customers interact with banks. Now, current reports suggest that there has been as much as a 72 per cent increase in the use of FinTech apps, and prompted financial services organisations to increase their investments in FinTech. As the financial services industry in Australia  faces a significant challenge in finding FinTech skills, professionals who possess these in-demand FinTech capabilities are going to find significant career development and renumeration opportunities in the years ahead.

“The financial services industry is facing significant skill shortages, especially in technology. The industry is struggling to attract individuals with both business and technical expertise. This combination of skills can help improve the efficiency of institutions and generate new products and services,” UNSW Senior Lecturer and Program Director, MFinTech, School of Banking and Finance, Luis Filipe Goncalves-Pino said.

Dynabook Portégé X30L-G

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr


The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

Brother RJ-4230B

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
