Last year, we analyzed the Fintech 100. This year, we are a part of it! FinLeap’s ventures Pair Finance and solarisBank have been named in the top 50 Emerging Stars in Fintech in the collaboration report by KPMG and H2 ventures.
What is the Fintech 100?
The Fintech 100 is an annual ranking, celebrating the top 50 leading players in the financial industry and the top 50 emerging stars of Fintech. The report offers not only an overview of the companies, but is also an in-depth source of information about the most exciting startups and companies in the financial industry. This year’s list is the result of a global search and it includes 35 companies from the Americas, 28 companies from EMEA, 13 from the UK, 14 from Asia, and 10 from Australia and New Zealand. The list is a collaboration between KPMG and H2 Ventures.
The Ranking Process
The first list – the top 50 Established Fintechs – is a combination of the most innovative Fintech companies. All the companies are ranked based on four group factors: total capital raised, rate of capital raising, location and degree of sub industry disruption, and a judging panel’s subjective rating of degree of product, service, customer experience and business model innovation. The second list – the top 50 Emerging Stars – is based on undiscovered Fintech companies. Judges look for ventures who are the “players of the future”, meaning they have fresh and disruptive ideas and solutions.
Two of our ventures have been included in the Fintech 100 as emerging stars in the financial industry sphere. Pair Finance is a debt-collection venture that makes the process simple, efficient, and modern while maintaining a cooperative customer relationship. The second venture named is solarisBank – a tech company with a German banking license that has built an API-accessible banking platform for the digital economy.
FinLeap wants to congratulate all the companies for being included in the 2016 Fintech 100 report.
