Dear Reader

The Fintech100 highlights truly innovative companies, creating products and services at the juncture of technology and financial services who are seeking to disrupt the existing processes and products that dominate the marketplace, with fintech companies from 29 countries featuring in this year’s list.

The Fintech100 is divided into two sublists: (1) the ‘Top 50’ established fintech firms around the globe, which are ranked based on innovation, capital raising activity, size and country; and (2) the ‘Emerging 50’ firms, which are newer companies that are at the forefront of innovative technologies and practices.

We’ve selected the companies in the Fintech100 following extensive global research and analysis based on data across a range of dimensions, including the core five factors noted below:

  1. Average annual capital raised
  2. Rate of recent capital raising
  3. Geographic diversity
  4. Sectoral diversity
  5. X-factor: degree of product, service and business model innovation (a subjective measure that is applied only with respect to companies appearing on the Emerging list)

The Fintech100 in 2019 includes:

  • 42 companies from Asia Pacific (including Australia and New Zealand),
  • 36 companies from the UK and EMEA (Europe, the Middle East and Africa), and
  • 22 companies from the Americas (North and South America).

The sectoral breakup of the 2019 Fintech100 is as follows:

27 payments and transactions companies, 19 wealth companies, 17 insurance companies, 15 lending companies, 9 neo/challenger banks, and 13 companies that operate across multiple fintech sectors.

The companies on the 2019 list have raised over US$70B in venture capital (a 35% increase on last year’s figure) and over US$18B of capital in the past 12 months.

We congratulate the Top 10 companies in the Fintech100 for 2019:
