What are the largest Fintech companies?
A live and updated ranking of the largest Fintech companies
The table below references the largest Fintech companies in the world. It is designed to help those who want an updated overview of the Fintech industry through the lens of market valuations.
For listed companies, real-time market capitalisations are fed from Google Finance. For private companies, a reference to the source is attached.
An explanation of the methodology can be found at the bottom of the page.
Largest Fintech companies by market capitalisation
What is Fintech?
At CFTE, our definition of Fintech is “the impact that technology has in transforming the financial industry”. It’s a very broad definition that includes early stage Fintech startups, established startups such as Stripe, large tech companies such as Ant Financial, but also financial institutions such as Citi or Prudential. In the table below, we have decided to exclude the financial institutions, but included the payment companies, where the role of technology is more predominant.
What is market capitalisation?
For listed companies, we use Google Finance as the market capitalisation. For private companies, we use articles, press releases, etc., which we reference. This has to be taken with a grain of salt since private valuations are not easily comparable (preferential rights, etc.) and disclosed numbers can’t always be trusted. Some companies are not present because no valuations were public.
Is it a comprehensive list?
Not by a long way. There are companies missing and figures change on a daily basis. We have decided to only list the companies with a valuation in excess of $1bn (the “unicorns” in startup speak). We are constantly updating this table, so don’t hesitate to send us names of companies we have missed and flag inaccurate information. Thanks a lot for your help!
