The Fintech50 2020 Releases This Years 50 European Fintech Companies to Watch Out For

The Fintech50, the first list in the world to recognise innovative European fintechs, has announced the 50 companies named to its 2020 list. Leaders from Silicon Valley Bank, Accel, Mastercard, Augmentum Fintech, Schroders, Xero and Commerzbank selected this year’s 50 from over 2000 European companies.

The list, in its 8th year, features established brands, alongside 19 companies new to the list, reflecting this year’s focus on innovation, a relevant topic to people, business and financial services at the moment.

Identity, payments, open-banking, banking-as-a-service emerge, unsurprisingly, as hot spaces, alongside innovation that makes business easier at a challenging time for SMEs. In addition, alternative investing, pensions and savings, services that save consumers money on existing credit (rather than selling it at point of sale), the emerging data economy, sustainable finance, and making shareholder voices heard all feature.

This year’s list is in three parts: The Top Ten, The FinTech50, and The Hot Ten, which recognises early-stage companies. This is to add nuance, rather than bundle together companies still in beta with those who have developed a global client base under one umbrella called ‘Fintech’.
