The Fintech Power 50, a list of the 40 most innovative companies and 10 visionary personalities shaping the financial services industry, has been revealed for 2022 at Fintech Week London this week.
The annual global program acts as a hub for driving change and creativity in the financial services industry, helping the sector innovate and grow.
After more than 1,200 companies were nominated and over 18,000 votes cast, this year’s chosen 50 were revealed live on stage at Fintech Week London on Monday afternoon.
Announcing the final list, Mark Walker, co-founder and chief operating officer of The Fintech Power 50, said: “The Fintech Power 50 annual list acts as a much-needed reminder of all the great things we are achieving in the world of financial technology, and shines a spotlight on those who are transforming financial services for the better. To be a member of the Fintech Power 50, you have to be innovative, you have to be disruptive and you have to be pushing the boundaries.”
“When myself and Jason Williams started the Fintech Power 50, it was very much a European affair. So to see the growth of interest from outside the region has been our most proud achievement. Especially this year for the very first time, we have companies from Latin America and the Middle East. It really shows that it’s becoming much more of a global phenomenon with fintech and we’re able to actually support that.”
