About The FinTech50 Asia

Having launched The FinTech20s India and Hong Kong in April this year, we are now preparing to launch an Asia-wide FinTech50 to showcase the Asian innovators who are transforming financial services.

We'll be looking at FinTechs across the entire region, from Hong Kong, India, Japan, Korea and the ASEAN region.

Who is eligible? As with The FinTech50, start-ups with the potential to become a game-changer and high-growth enterprises with the competitive staying power to continue being one. It's open to those providing services to existing financial services organizations and to those providing FinTech alternatives direct to the consumer. 

We will announce The FinTech50 Asia in 2018.

How to get involved

The FinTech50 Asia is not a competition, so we do not rely on award submissions to select our fifty. Instead, we research our long list throughout the year and ask industry leaders to suggest FinTechs they would like to see listed. Then we invite them to select their top 50.

We also created this short form for FinTechs who would like tell us their story in their own words.

Where's the value?

The FinTech50 generates global interest when released. News of this year's list received 20,000 downloads and reached 1m Twitter accounts in its first week online. Businesses selected for The FinTech50 tell us that being listed gets them onto the radar of investors, influencers and prospective clients, particularly those in financial services. Our sites rank page 1 Google for over 200 FinTech-related keywords and receive visits from over 160 countries; our current top 20 by visitor volume is:

The UK, The US, Germany, Spain, India, Netherlands, Russia, Switzerland, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Ireland, Canada, South Korea, Australia, Brazil, Singapore, China, Sweden.

The FinTech50 Asia selection panel

We are inviting the biggest names in FinTech in Asia and around the world to select the list and will be revealing them here soon. If you would like to get involved, either as a panelist or a partner, you are welcome to contact us. Meet our full panel here.
