Basiq & Finch announce partnership to accelerate fintech innovation

Basiq & Finch have announced a partnership to develop an integrated data solution that provides secure access to customer consented financial data combined with real-time transaction intelligence to uncover valuable insights and drive personalised financial experiences.

The partnership between the two Australian fintechs was formed in response to the increasing demand for higher quality financial data. As open banking makes customer data increasingly accessible, innovative fintechs require higher levels of data accuracy and intelligence to lead the way with data-driven customer experiences.

Finch, CEO Toby Gardner, said:

“We are proud to partner with leading fintech, Basiq to offer Clients Australia’s first complete, end-to-end data aggregation and enrichment solution.”
