Six Park has been named as a finalist for the Investment Innovator of the Year category at the Fintech Business Awards.
Six Park CEO and co-founder Pat Garrett said he was thrilled by the nomination, which comes off the back of a watershed year for the business.
“At a time of diminished trust in the financial services sector, Six Park is proud to be transforming the wealth management landscape by ensuring investors can access highly professional investment management at a low cost,” Mr Garrett said.
“Awareness of robo-advice and the significant benefits it can offer to both consumers and financial institutions is clearly at a tipping point in the wake of the Banking Royal Commission, and the fintech industry as a whole is well-placed to solve many of the problems uncovered during the past year.”
Mr Garrett said January had been the busiest month in Six Park’s history.
“Our community of investors is growing rapidly and it’s an exciting time for our business and for our clients too. We’re proud to be making investing more transparent and affordable.”
The Fintech Business Awards, one of the leading awards programs in the Australian financial technology sector, celebrate the leading individuals and organisations who demonstrate outstanding innovation and entrepreneurship.
Covering 18 categories, the prestigious event will bring together Australian entrepreneurs, start-ups and established tech firms from across the fintech spectrum as well as private equity and angel investors to large financial institutions and professional services firms.
“The Australian financial sector continues to grow and is one of the fastest growing sectors in the country which is fuelled by the innovative efforts of the country’s rapidly growing community of fintech entrepreneurs,” Fintech Business editor James Mitchell said.
“These awards shine a light on those entrepreneurs, allowing them to be recognised for their hard work.”
The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on 28 March.
