Finura launches to the Australian market
Following the departure from Enzumo, Peter Worn and Aron Satchell have announced an expansion of Finura Group’s reach into technology consulting and launched an independent wealth technology advisory arm.
They said the goal was to bring wealth management technology firms closer to customers as with more international players entering the Australian market, there was an abundance of technology choice; however the real challenge remained in the execution.
This was particularly visible in financial advice, a sector which was underinvested in technology.
“Whilst we knew there was strong demand for our digital content services, our backgrounds in wealth management technology consulting made it a natural next step for us,” Satchell said.
“We are already working with several leading wealth management organisations and are excited to play our part in the digital transformation of client experience and advice delivery. We are well underway in expanding our team and look forward to announcing more details on this and our partnerships.”
Finura worked with enterprise software, fintech companies, product manufacturers and advice firms engaged in digital transformations.

Developed in conjunction with Finura Group, the ‘2022 Adviser and Advice Tech report’ reviewed five end-to-end providers, 15 application solution providers, six digital advice providers and two platform providers, with a view of how each of those providers interact in the advice framework.
This year will see “fewer foreign raiders” – being overseas tech providers – coming into the market, according to a prediction from Finura Group. The wealth tech consultant is releasing its annual set of predictions for the year, and despite expectations advice business are ripe for overseas capital investment, this may not be the case for tech providers.
Calls have been made for Australia’s advice industry to follow the UK’s regulatory model of regulating relevant and non-relevant providers separately. The joint submission to the Quality of Advice Review from consulting firms Encore Advisory, Finura Group and Tangelo Advice Consulting has argued consumers having widely dissimilar experiences of receiving advice from relevant providers versus limited scope advice through a super fund, with less regulatory requirements, isn’t a good outcome for consumers.
