Businesses to watch

ASX listed Afterpay Touch has revolutionised the market that has traditionally been called 'high-interest consumer finance' by effectively charging the retailer a commission on the sale instead of charging the consumer. Incumbent players such as Flexigroup, Money 3, and Cash Converters traditionally charged a consumer very high annual interest rates on small financial loans for goods.

We expect the market to continue to be consolidated via acquisitions. The business model could also be applied in a business to business function—and there are a range of small financial companies that have traditionally financed this market at attractive rates of return.

ASX listed Netwealth has developed a market leading position over the last 10 years through software product innovation, and targeting both advisers and individuals. By creating a platform that's easy to integrate, the company has been able to draw in the adviser base in Australia which needs software solutions to manage their clients affairs.

Due to the company’s brand, software platform, and financial power, we expect the company to grow at double-digit figures organically, but also to consider acquisitions in the coming years.
