Technology companies based in Sydney

Maybe I'm missing some companies, but these are the ones I have in mind, I would love to hear about other ones:
Anything else that I've missed?
I think the focus these past few years seem to be more into the high frequency trading, fintech space, things like IMC, Optiver, et. al.
There is definitely some local technical development in many companies such as Google, Microsoft, Intel, Facebook, Linkedin, etc, but I'm more interested to know about technology companies that are based in Sydney, or Australia in general.
Edit: Added a few other companies

Australian based brokers with international trading supporting advanced order types for a SMSF

I'm currently setting up my SMSF, and looking at which stockbroker to use. I am looking for a broker that offers good til cancelled (GTC) trailing stops on international (preferably US and German shares), reasonable exchange rates, and without custody fees (I'm not worried about inactivity fees; but I want to avoid custody fees as a % of my balance).
My preference is for a broker with an Australian office / interface, to simplify the reporting and audit requirements.
I currently use Schwab on my personal account, and would love to use them for the SMSF - except they're almost completely US based, and the AU office is basically sales only (I don't want to be trying to use OzForex with my SMSF account).
Any suggestions? I liked the look of IG until I realised that they only offer day orders, and am avoiding Saxo due to their custody fee.

Have you used OzForex?

Wondering if any of you have used OzForex and had could give me some customer reviews. I've read some feedback online, but never "spoken" with anyone who's used it or even familiar with it.
I'm pretty much just wanting to make sure it's a reliable way to transfer funds, that my money won't go missing, and that it's a better deal financially than going through my regular bank.

Best way to transfer $3k AUD -> US Bank Account (without OzForex)

Yo!
I'm in America for the next 3 months, and need to transfer a bunch of cash over (about AU$2k/mo). I've tried to set up an account with OzForex but as I'm currently in the US they say they need to use my US address - and I don't have proof of this address as I've only just gotten here and don't have any utility bills or statements with my address on it (and won't for my duration, I'm AirBNBing).
So what are my best options for doing a transfer to a US bank account?
I have Coinjar set up and could maybe do something with bitcoin, I also have a CBA account but their exchange rate is abysmal (~.68c plus international transfer fees, when the Ozforex rate is 0.73c!)

FBAR for USForex (international money transfer and currency converter business)???

Hello,
I have an account with USForex. They provide "international money transfer services" and are registered as a "Money Service Business" and "licensed as a money transmitter".
I never actually used USForex to convert or transmit any money, but my account is sitting with them and still 'open' and they have all of my info, including my name, address, and SSN.
I already have foreign bank accounts and filed an FBAR for them for last year, but I didn't at the time think it was necessary to mention my USForex account.
Did I need to include my USForex account in the FBAR FinCEN 114 filing?
Here is a little more info on what USForex is and my situation:
According to their website USForex is a Delaware company, but USForex is a wholly owned of OzForex, which is a Australian company
To make matters a little more confusing, I originally tried to open an OzForex.com.au account but I'm only getting emails from USForex, I called them up and they told me that my account is on the USForex.com platform because I'm a US person and that a OzForex account doesn't exist.
FBAR requires you to file: (1) Bank account, (2) Securities account (3) Other financial account.
I'm worried it meets the definition of (3) Other financial account:
(3) Other financial account. The term “other financial account” means—
(i) An account with a person that is in the business of accepting deposits as a financial agency;
(ii) An account that is an insurance or annuity policy with a cash value;
(iii) An account with a person that acts as a broker or dealer for futures or options transactions in any commodity on or subject to the rules of a commodity exchange or association; or
Also, because of the way USForex works, it allows you to convert currency only if a strike price is met (e.g. if the dollar ever drops below this amount, do a conversion), does that technically meet (iii)?
Thanks for any input.

Alternatives to OzForex?

Hi All,
Has anyone tried alternatives to OzForex? They used to be very quick and good rates, but their service has been iffy lately. I haven't been happy with my last few dealings with them. I know regulators are tightening down on them, but I feel that their business processes and communication has really lagged lately.
I'm thinking of trying Transferwise or Currencyfair next and looking for opinions on them.
Thanks for your feedback! FNC
Edit: Currencies used are AUD <-> EUR <-> USD

Currency conversion and travel card help? AUD to USD

Hi everyone, I have a holiday to the US booked for later this year. The majority of flights and accommodation are paid for so I really only have my spending money that I need to worry about. As per my title, I don't know what to do with the money. I'll explain my situation.
I would like to convert my money now, before the AUD falls even further against the USD (really wish I converted my money months ago). I've read up about where to convert currencies, and people have suggested United Currency Exchange stores, Currencyfair.com and OzForex.
I haven't organised anything money wise for my holiday (e.g. travel card), so I did some research on this sub, and I'm really keen on getting a Citibank Plus account + debit card over other options such as travel cards etc.
My issue is that the Citibank account seems to be in AUD and converts to USD when you make purchases (during my holiday when the exchange rate is likely to be worse).
If I want to convert my AUD right now, where would this money be stored, and could I keep those USD dollars in the Citibank account?
Think of this as a /explainlikeimfive question about spending money overseas haha.

(CHF-->CAD) Looking for advice on transferring Swiss Francs to Canadian dollars. Via bank or online service? [xpost from personal finance]

I'm posting on behalf of a friend who needs to exchange Swiss francs to Canadian dollars. He is wondering about using canadianforex.ca (part of the OzForex Group), to pay less on charges compared to banks. If this is relevant, he's in Canada and has no plans to be in CH. AFAIK, the funds are held in an ordinary Swiss bank account opened while he was employed there.
Thanks for any advice or recommendations.

OFX - good time to buy?

Looking to grab some more ASX200 listed stocks at value.
I've always liked OzForex and they're approaching an all time low.
Dividend yield not shocking and I see potential for good growth - the company has embraced technology very well.
Thought?

Aussies, whats the cheapest way to get bitcoins?

I needed some bitcoins quickly the other day so i took this method which screwed me. I need some advice as to the cheapest method to get BTC for my AUD.
I Used CBA to do a USD transfer to mtgox of 100usd ( i know bad idea) . They charged me $22 for a fee, but not only this, they charged a spread i could jump over... 1 USD to 0.93cents AUD.
Then i log into mtgox and find out the currency is still in AUD wtf?! i then place an order on mtgox which, unless i'm mistaken doesn't let me places limit orders so i got screwed in the low liquidity AUD/BTC market.
All in all, i get 18.9 bitcoins for $129.91 AUD. minus the $22 fee, thats about 5.68 per BTC when the market was trading in the high 4s.
Next time i plan on doing a wire transfer with ozForex, the spreads seem reasonable. And i plan on using tradehill since the options for trading seem a bit better. This should reduce my cost much more.
can anyone recommend anything better for us poor Aussies? I've looked at https://www.worldbitcoinexchange.com/. However it appears they have no liquidity. the best prices was 8AUD for 1BTC, what a joke.

Best exchange rate for small foreign currency purchases?

With the gradual decline of the AUD to around parity with the USD, and predictions of worse to come, I've been thinking it'd probably be a good move to convert some of my for-travel savings intended to use over the next few years. Probably be looking at moving $7-8000 into a mix of USD/GBP/Euros
I've got a Commbank Travel Money card, which I've used when travelling in the past, but the rates aren't fantastic (about 4 cents below the market rate). Are there any realistic alternatives that offer better rates?
I've seen that HSBC offer foreign currency accounts for relatively low minimum deposit amounts, which I understand would let me take advantage of the more favourable exchange rates offered by OzForex/XE/etc, but I'm wondering if that sort of thing would be really worth it, since I'd only be saving a a few hundred bucks all up, and it doesn't look like it can be used as a transaction account when travelling (no ATM/EFTPOS/BPay facilities), meaning I'd presumably have to withdraw cash and cart that around when it actually came time to travel?
Does anyone have any favourite methods for this sort of thing?
