Future Investment Trends

We are all familiar with the Fintech revolution and the importance of Fintech as an enabler and as a disruptor. In our life time we have seen the five most valuable companies worldwide become technology companies. 

Take your investing decisions for example; you can now get into the property market for $100; invest your spare change into the share market and invest your super in a diversified portfolio with technology at its core. 

This is changing the way millennials are thinking about money and investing, something that was previously too difficult to understand or too hard to save for has now become much more of a reality. 

If you would like learn more about these investment opportunities as well as hear about the journey's of these start-ups then join us for this exciting panel discussion:

  • Jess Ellerm - CEO and Co-Founder, Zuper
  • George Lucas - CEO & Director, Acorns Australia 
  • Anthony Millet - CEO, BrickX 

Zuper is extremely super superannuation. Which means it’s all the things superannuation currently isn’t today. Zuper wants you to care about it a little more than you currently do.

Zuper will let you compare your super balance with others like you, and top up if need be, straight from your phone. But best of all, Zuper will take away the anxiety of not knowing whether you’ll have enough to retire on by helping you ensure you do. Because at the end of the day, isn’t that what it’s all about?

Acorns automatically invests your spare change. The mobile-first investment platform enables commission free investing, portfolio management that you automatically invest your spare change into a diversified portfolio of exchange traded funds (ETFs).

BrickX was inspired by crowd-funding models, with the aim of tackling what have become the biggest hurdles to buying into property: affordability, big initial costs, loan requirements, exit and commission costs and long investment periods.
