The Fintech Times is pleased to announce we have once again been selected as the strategic media partner for the 2022 Fintech Power 50 annual guide as nominations have now opened.
The Power 50 programme is the annual guide to the most influential and innovative companies in the fintech industry, as well as featuring 10 of the visionary and inspiring personalities shaping the sector.
For the fourth year running, 40 global, cutting-edge companies and 10 of the world’s best fintech influencers will be selected for the exclusive annual programme, which shines a spotlight on those who are driving change and creativity in the financial services industry.
As well as showcasing the hottest in the Fintech world, the Fintech Power 50 acts as a hub that actively promotes its members to a global audience by introducing bespoke networking and event opportunities. Being part of the Fintech Power 50 is not an award, it is a great recommendation tool and a testament to the work that individuals and companies are doing to help the sector innovate and grow.
Until 1 March, industry members can nominate fintech companies and industry individuals from anywhere in the world that they believe are deserving of being featured in this year’s programme. Nominees will then be revealed for both the businesses and industry influences, where the public will be invited to vote online until the beginning of June. Members will be announced in a launch ceremony on 11 July.
Not only will winners be showcased in the 2022 cohort, but the companies and individuals will also be given access to The Fintech Power 50’s trusted network of fintech companies and leaders. Benefits include guest appearances on webinars, podcasts and panels, the opportunity to contribute opinion lead thought leadership articles in The Fintech Times newspaper, invitations to industry networking events and support with talent acquisition.
The 2021 cohort included some of the biggest, most influential names in the fintech world, with Ron Shevlin, a top global fintech influence, Theodora Lau, whose work seeks to spark innovation to improve consumer financial well-being, Jim Marous, the internationally recognised financial industry strategist and Brett King, world-renowned futurist and speaker.
