FinTech 100

The speed and energy with which fintech innovation is impacting financial services is gathering global momentum on many measures. Globally, fintech financing has jumped six-fold over the past 3 years with over US$20 billion estimated to be reached in 2015.

The Fintech 100 report is a collaborative research effort between KPMG and fintech investment firm, H2 Ventures. The report identifies the leading 50 ‘Established’ fintech companies across the globe, and the most intriguing 50 ‘Emerging Stars’ – exciting new fintechs with bold, disruptive and potentially game-changing ideas.

The Fintech 100 were selected following extensive global research and analysis based on data relating to five factors: total capital raised, rate of capital raising, geographic and sector diversity, consumer and marketplace traction, and X-factor (degree of product, service and business model innovation) – a subjective measure that is applied only with respect to companies appearing on the 50 Emerging Stars list.

Key insights

  • Funding boom — The Fintech 100 companies have collectively raised in excess of US$10 billion.
  • Fintech is now truly a global sector — The list is comprised of 40 US companies, 20 from EMEA, 18 from the UK and 22 from ASPAC.
  • China fintech leads the world — Zhong An, a Chinese company, tops this year’s list, and there are 7 Chinese fintech companies on the list.
  • Payments is most at risk of disruption — Fintech growth in payments, currencies and transactions sees this segment now representing 25% of the Fintech 100, a substantial uplift on last year.
  • Insurance finds its fintech footing — The top two companies on the list are insurance fintechs (with 7 overall, compared to none last year).
  • Shift from disruptors to enablers — There are 25 ‘enablers’ (i.e. service providers to financial institutions) on the list this year, compared to 7 last year.
