Helping ADIs and FinTechs implement the CDR

To implement the CDR, ADIs will at least need to develop a sufficiently robust application programming interface (API). More broadly, ADIs and FinTechs alike will need to assess critical factors such as: customer-retention strategies; product offerings; IT security; and privacy policies, among others.

RegTech Innovations

Helping ADIs and FinTechs

benefit from RegTech technologies

Gen Advisory is an advocate for increased RegTech adoption in Australian financial services. RegTech innovations (in areas such as AML, KYC, responsible lending etc) allow ADIs and FinTechs to significantly reduce risk and regulatory costs , while freeing up compliance  teams to focus on higher-value tasks.

Hayne Royal Commission

Helping ADIs and FinTechs

adhere to the RC's recommendations

The Royal Commission’s Final Report contained 17 recommendations for the banking sector and 3 cross-sectoral recommendations on “culture, governance and remuneration”. Of greatest impact on ADIs and FinTechs to date have been: (1) the extension of the BEAR regime to broader areas within ADIs; and (2) the Report's findings pertaining to "conflicted remuneration".

Force for Good

Helping ADIs and FinTechs

"do well by doing good"

Gen Advisory has observed strong investor demand for sustainable finance instruments such as sustainability-linked loans and bonds, both within Australia and internationally. We believe that sustainable finance is an exciting area which will grow significantly in the next few years. ADIs and FinTechs have the potential to contribute to, and benefit from, this global trend.  

The Australian “financial and insurance services” sector is one of the most female-dominated sectors in Australia. It is unfortunately also a sector with one of the highest gender pay gap rates in the country.


According to statistics published by the Workplace for Equality Agency (WGEA), as of February 2020, the sector’s mean pay gap stood at 22.2%. 

Almost all Australians are either a customer or an employee of an ADI or FinTech. Given this wide reach, ADIs and FinTechs have the ability to contribute to solving some of the most pressing social issues currently afflicting Australian society. These include: Australia’s aging workforce; domestic violence; substance abuse; and financial exclusion, among others.
