Nomis selects Melbourne for APAC HQ

Fintech company Nomis Solutions will establish its Asia-Pacific headquarters in Melbourne.

The move will boost Victoria’s growing fintech sector and create up to 50 jobs over five years.

More than 10,000 bankers worldwide use Nomis’s cutting-edge approach to big data, personalised customer solutions and market analysis.

This new base of operations was secured with the support of the Victorian Government, which is growing Victoria’s reputation as a leading global innovation hub.

“Victoria’s thriving finance sector and talented graduates are attracting global investment and spurring on our state’s rising tech sector,” said Minister for Trade and Investment Philip Dalidakis.

“We’re attracting innovative companies in modern industries that will support the jobs of our future economy.”

Financial services are the largest sector of the Victorian economy, employing more than 115,000 people and contributing $40 billion per year.

The global fintech sector encompasses a wide range of capabilities such as payments, blockchain technology and data analytics, and is a growing force within Australia’s $147 billion financial and insurance service industry.

“Nomis Solutions is excited at the opportunity to expand its business within the region’s fast-moving financial services sector,” said Damian Young, MD of APAC, Nomis Solutions.

“We’re delighted to establish our head office in Victoria, and using it as a base to expand our team locally to support our clients in Australia, New Zealand and the wider APAC region.”

New technologies are rapidly changing the way the financial services industry operates and the government is ensuring Melbourne’s fintech sector is flourishing and creating new jobs, businesses, technologies and exports.

Last year the government announced it would partner with Stone and Chalk and YBF Ventures to create two dedicated fintech hubs in Melbourne to nurture local talent, attract investment and create jobs in this fast-growing global industry.

Victoria is already home to a growing number of fintech companies including Stripe, Square, Airwallex, Mimecast, Assembly Payments and Moula.
