Oban provides a solution for the reliable and secure transport of messages of any type.

The Oban Story


Oban was established in June 2013 by Brett Christie and Rory Wainer (previous owners and founders of Synchronised Software, one of Australia’s leading providers of Superannuation Administration software). With over 40 years' industry and technology experience, Christie and Wainer have been at the forefront of many technological advances within the industry.


Since June 2013, Oban has re-invented many orthodoxies, including:

  • reviewing, redesigning and remodelling industry processes, and
  • building a new secure messaging platform to replace current processes, providers and technology

which have been tested in real-world institutional production environments.


From the start, one thing was very clear: if Oban was to disrupt the industry, it needed to apply a standards-based approach and not be tied to the past, which is littered with proprietary code and practices.  Oban built a series of automation gateways based around global and national standards including SuperStream, SBR2, ACORD (insurance) and ISO 20022 (banking and investment) that interact with the outside world.  Finally, the last piece of the jigsaw was put in place, with Oban creating an event-driven paradigm that coordinates the information flow from these gateways using the industry’s first and only ‘message and standards’ based administration system.


Put together in a cloud-hosted environment, running on Oban's cloud-first secure messaging platform that exploits features like elastic scalability, and you have the industry's first Digital Superannuation Admin Service.


Oban is quietly going about the long overdue digitisation of the Superannuation and Insurance industries.

Oban provides solutions for the reliable and secure transport of messages of any type.
