The combination of technology and financial services is resulting in the disruption of the finance industry, and this sector has seen substantial growth over recent years. Global fintech financing has risen seven-fold over the past three years to an estimated US$20 billion, rising 66 percent over the level of investment in 2014. Fintech is clearly not to be ignored, and the next question one must ask is: “who are the most innovating global fintech companies across the globe?”
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.
