KPMG and H2 Ventures have named their inaugural "Top 100" leading and emerging fintech companies today.
Led by Chinese Start-up ZhongAn, one UK-based company made the top 5 in Funding Circle, known for investing in small businesses to give them the platform to get started through a bidding process.
The world’s leading and emerging fintech companies were named today in the “Fintech 100”, a collaborative report by fintech investment firm H2 Ventures and KPMG Fintech. The report listed the 100 companies that used technology in order to disrupt the financial industry, the companies that fully defined the term “fintech”. “The Fintech 100 includes the leading 50 fintech companies across the globe, and the most intriguing 50 “emerging stars” – exciting new fintechs with bold, disruptive and potentially game-changing ideas – expanding on the success of last year’s list,” the report read.
