What we do

The FinTech50 is an annual list of the 50 hottest FinTechs in Europe selected by the biggest names in European FinTech. Now in its fourth year (2017 will be year five) it was the first list worldwide to feature FinTech companies by innovation rather than by revenue.

We have 1500 FinTechs across Europe on our long list

We look at FinTechs 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 2017 received over 100,000 views and reached 3.5m Twitter accounts in its first week online. It was also covered in major media, including CNBC and CityAM.

The FinTech50 2018 - how to get your Fintech considered

It's a question we're asked a lot. We undertake our own independent research throughout the year, but always offer FinTechs the opportunity to present their story in their own words through a short form. It's entirely optional - but ensures that everyone who wants to be considered for the list can get their business onto our panel's radar.
