UK FinTech companies have come away from Money20/20, Copenhagen, in glory, after 31 featured in Europe’s FinTech50 list. The top 50, picked from 1,200 european entries, was selected by a panel of 30 industry experts. Now in its fourth year, the list looks for companies that demonstrate long-term potential, as well as customer traction.

“2016 marks a pivotal point at which big banks and traditional finance institutions are starting to collaborate more closely with the industry’s newest players”, say Julie Lake and Nicky Cotter, founders of The FinTech50.

“London FinTechs feature in just over half the list – in part due to the UK’s favourable regulatory environment as well as access to funding and talent. But London’s status is also being very energetically challenged by FinTech communities in capitals such as Amsterdam, Berlin and Stockholm.”

“2016 will be about maturing of the FinTech industry” say Jan Hammer, partner at Index Ventures. “With all the low hanging fruit of financial services harvested, the next FinTech companies will be addressing areas that are more difficult from both technological and regulatory perspectives and also more disruptive”.
