Our Story

Inspired by our own family journey we have come together to activate the opportunities across Australia, Asia and globally.

First Asian immigrant family arrives in Australia.

Oskar Belz (Jonathan's grandfather) escapes Nazi Germany and lives in the Shanghai 'Ghetto' for 5 years before moving to Sydney.

Jonathan completes HSK 6 (the highest level of Chinese language fluency) within one year. This is an achievement so rare it is recognised in the media.

Jonathan and Gavin co-found BFA with initial partners and investors.

BFA Community launches, and are the first investment firm in Australia to create unique NFT digital assets.
