The Bank of Mum and Dad revealed as one of Australia’s largest and most trusting financial institutions, but at what cost?

The generosity of individuals lending money to their children to support them getting their first home or running a small business can be a recipe for disaster without the right protection and documentation in place.

More people than ever are leaning on their parents for support getting in to their first home or starting a new business.

A recent report showed the Bank of Mum and Dad is the 10th largest lender in the country, and funding over $20 Billion in loans.

An article released this week in the Australian Financial Review revealed that the Bank of Mum and Dad is responsible for 25% of SME loans.

The newest addition to Fintech Australia’s board Tim Dean Credi’s CEO

For the newest addition to Fintech Australia’s board, the name of the game is helping WA find its place.

Tim Dean, founder and CEO of relationship-based lending app Credi, will join the board of Fintech Australia following CrowdfundUP founder Jack Quigley’s departure.

Fintech Australia is the fintech industry’s national body, providing everything from networking to advocacy.

Tim said he’s hoping to help WA fintechs, who according to EY currently make up 9% of the industry nationally, carve out their own niche.

“[I’ll] be meeting in August [with the CEO of Fintech Australia] to nut out a whole bunch of initiatives that bring fintech in Western Australia into the fold on a more inclusive basis, but also … to develop some initiatives that give fintech WA its own identity,” he said.

“Having an identity is useful because everyone needs a role to play, and it can be a home for a relationship with Asia, then that suddenly can build as a core strength to its offering.”

At What Age Are Entrepreneurs Likely to Find Success?

Silicon Valley’s tech workers can go to great lengths to appear youthful—from having plastic surgery and hair transplants, to lurking in the parking lots of hip tech companies to see how the young and promising dress, as chronicled a few years ago by the New Republic.

“There’s this idea that young people are just more likely to have more valuable ideas,” says Benjamin Jones, a professor of strategy at the Kellogg School.

But is this notion accurate?

“If you look at age and great achievement in the sciences in general, it doesn’t peak in the twenties,” he says. “It’s more middle-aged.” Even Nobel Prize winners are having their breakthrough successes later and later in life, Jones found in earlier research. Are the startups of Silicon Valley really an exception?
