FinTech Leaders 2020 Report

The most comprehensive research program for ranking FinTech companies across the globe

The annual Center for Financial Professionals (CeFPro) global research for the next edition of Fintech Leaders has been launched!

CeFPro’s FinTech Leaders is the most comprehensive independent study of the global FinTech ecosystem and the leading FinTech players around the world. The 2019 FinTech Leaders survey and report established a new paradigm; expanding on the interrelationship of technology companies, financial services firms and financial services solution providers. The traditional lines are blurring, with significant opportunities – and challenges – as well as increased risk. The 2019 FinTech Leaders report provided some clarity to the uncertainty and confusion in the industry, establishing new definitions and segmentation of the industry.

FinTech Leaders 2020 will be the most far-reaching and rigorous program for ranking the leaders in the FinTech industry. The survey is largely based on the end-users responses and perspectives, allowing CeFPro’s research and analyst team to take the pulse of the industry, and allowing those in the industry to benchmark their standing against their peers. CeFPro is anticipating in excess of 1000 finance, technology, operations, risk and compliance professionals to participate in the 2020 survey. Besides the update on overall FinTech Leaders ecosystem, the report also provides valuable analysis on key trends that are shaping the industry, future opportunities and 30 individual categories.

CeFPro’s approach is the ensure that the report and research is centered around the end-users, the expenditure priorities, the benefits (and challenges) of investing in financial technology. The demand-side of this is through an international survey, interviews, data gathering and so on. With regards to the categories and rankings, CeFPro’s FinTech Advisory Board have provided unrivalled insight, filtering key categories and sectors, providing a reasoned and balanced overview of key issues.

The post-crisis world, with increased demands from regulators, has hastened the need for innovation and cost-effectiveness. FinTech Leaders 2019 clearly established that the industry has been in ascendency for more than a generation, though the emergence of powerful computational technologies, at a cost effective rate for businesses to operate, combined with internet and cloud technology, have allowed new strides forward in the evolutionary – or some might argue, revolutionary – cycle. The full impact of this is yet to be clear, as each year brings new innovative advances.

CeFPro anticipates that 2020 will bring increased transformation, evolution and innovation. We ask all industry experts with an interest in the rise of FinTechs to participate in the survey. All respondents, who provide their details, will be provided with a complimentary copy of the final report and findings.

I appeared in a centre page spread on the application of pattern recognition to Barclays trading room in Computer Weekly in October 1991! Times have changed but the discipline of ensuring we make the most of advances in computing to improved business operations and real customer benefits has not.
