The FinTech50 was the first list in the world to showcase Fintech companies for innovation rather than revenue. When it launched, in 2013, it was a guide to an emerging sector. Seven years on, it is seen as a guide to quality within a super crowded one. The list is selected each year by an invited international panel of some of the biggest names in the sector and the The FinTech50 2018 generated over 1M views across 153 countries. Now recognised as a global top-ten influencer in the sector, The FinTech50 will launch its first global list, The Access to Finance50, in 2019 to showcase 50 innovators worldwide who are promoting financial inclusion by transforming the way that people and businesses access financial services.
