innovators from around the world.
The Fintech100 represents the most 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 100.
The Fintech100 is divided into two sub-lists: (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 and often pursuing new business models.
We've selected the companies in the Fintech100 following extensive global research and analysis based on data relating to ten dimensions,
including the core five factors noted below:
1. Total capital raised
2. Rate of capital raising
3. Geographic diversity
4. Sectorial 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)
These selection criteria are the key metrics used to calculate the rankings of companies in the Fintech100 list because of the emphasis that
venture capitalists place on the ability of firms to generate scale and a long term sustainable competitive advantage.
The Fintech100 in 2017 includes:
41 companies from the UK and EMEA (Europe, the Middle East and Africa),
29 companies from the Americas (North and South America), and
30 companies from Asia (including Australia and New Zealand).
China continues to dominate the fintech landscape, representing 5 of the Top 10 fintech companies in 2017. This follows the trend from
previous years, as Chinese incumbents continue
