What we do
The FinTech50 is an annual list of the 50 hottest FinTech companies in Europe selected by some of the biggest names in FinTech. Now in its fifth year (2018 will be year six) it was the first list worldwide to feature FinTech companies for their innovation. We now two new titles: The FinTech50 Asia - and new for 2018 The Global Access to Finance50, which showcases innovators worldwide who are helping to promote financial inclusion by helping people and businesses to gain better access to financial services.
We have 1500 FinTechs across Europe on our long list
We look at FinTech companies across Europe, across all verticals, and there are just two criteria to being selected. Each year we invite an expert panel to select FinTechs with either the potential to become a game-changer or the competitive staying power to continue being one. It's not an awards programme and there are no outright winners. We don't rely on 'entries' but undertake our own research throughout the year. It’s our small tribute to a hugely enterprising sector that is redefining financial services. And to the movers, shakers and downright disruptive technologies within it who will be the ones to watch in any given year.
Featured FinTechs tell us that being listed does great things for their business – getting them onto the radar of key investors and customers. Banks and investors want to engage with our community of FinTech innovators across Europe.
The FinTech50 2018 - apply to be on the list
We undertake our own independent research throughout the year, receive recommendations from our panel, and we are often contacted by direct by FinTechs (feel free to contact us direct). We also offer FinTechs the opportunity to present their story in their own words via a short online form. It's entirely optional - but ensures that everyone who wants to be considered can get their business onto our panel's radar.
