The highly followed world ranking of the 100 leading Fintech companies of KPMG and H2 Ventures was revealed today live from Sydney. This ranking includes companies that demonstrate excellence by leveraging new technologies to revolutionize the world of financial services and deliver a superior and innovative customer experience.
Selected by a panel of fintech experts from around the world, Lendix is ranked 45th and present for the third year in a row.
The ranking is divided into two categories:
- The “Leading 50″ – ranking of the 50 most important Fintech companies in the world, based on criteria related to innovation, capital raising, size and impact. Lendix is ranked alongside the best Fintechs in the world ;
- The “Emerging 50″ – the avant-garde Fintech, which offers new disruptive business models. Two French fintech companies are included in this category: +simple.fr and Shift Technology.
“The Fintech100 ranking clearly shows the extraordinary leadership of the Chinese and US ecosystems. We are nevertheless convinced that in the particular sector of fintech, which is more multi-local than international, there is a room for creating European leaders. This is precisely our ambition at Lendix and we are delighted to be included in this ranking for the third year in a row,” says Olivier Goy, founder of Lendix.
“The weight of French Fintech continues to grow, with investments in the first half of 2018 increasing compared to the first half of 2017. With the arrival of 7 new countries in the ranking and Chinese players in the lead, France is a little less represented than in 2017, with 3 Fintech in the ranking. There is no shortage of new challenges for French entrepreneurs, who have to face these new entrants. But France can count on strong and established players, such as Lendix, as well as Fintechs who have demonstrated their innovative strength, such as the French nuggets of 2018, +Simple.fr and Shift Technology. The French market continues to enjoy a very strong momentum,” comments Mikaël Ptachek, head of the Fintech practice at KPMG.
