In collaboration with KPMG Fintech and Fintech investment firm, H2 Ventures, the 2018 Fintech100 report (PDF 24.3 MB) features the leading 50 'Established' fintech companies across the globe, as well as the most captivating 50 'Emerging Stars' with exciting, new products and solutions.
The Fintech100 signifies the rampant transformation happening within the financial services industry; an industry that is currently undergoing a widespread shift - with an increase of new players and established ventures building creative, leading-edge product offerings.
Chinese fintechs continue to dominate the Leading 50 list with three of the five top fintechs originating in China. Global competition continues to expand with fintechs originating from 36 countries, up from 29 countries in 2017. US fintechs topped the Fintech100 with 18 fintechs placed followed by 12 placed from the UK and 11 from China.
Although New Zealand only has one entry in this year’s Fintech 100 (congratulations to Pushpay), we believe that Aoeteroa is a hot bed of financial technology innovation. While growing global scale is important to businesses in some sectors, we believe that NZ banks and financial institutions will be best served by creating ecosystems with local, responsive Fintechs that understand our market and can offer true agility.
Companies in the Fintech100 list are 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.
