Selecting the Fintech 100
The Fintech 100 were 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
- 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)
