The level of funding has continued to rise for the Fintech 100, with companies on the list attracting an additional US$14.6bn of capital since last year’s report, just 12 months ago.
Toby Heap, H2 Ventures, commented: “The continued dominance of China, which rapidly rose last year to take the top spot, tells only part of the story. We are seeing the emergence of exciting fintech players in countries across the world – from India to Israel, from Portugal to the Philippines.”
Ian Pollari, Global co-lead of KPMG’s Fintech practice added: “One of the striking features of this year’s list is the growing success of fintech disruptors, with more than 90 percent of the top 50 ventures challenging incumbents or traditional business models. These disruptors are increasingly attracting a greater share of capital, raising more than 65 percent of total global fintech investment over the past year.”
Some of the report’s key findings include:
- China fintech continued to dominate with four of the top five companies on the list
- More global competition emerged, with 17 countries represented in the top 50 established companies, up from 13 last year.
- New fintech subsectors emerged, including regtech (regulatory technology), with 9 companies on the list.
- Insurtech continued its ascent, with 12 companies, almost double last year’s total.
