FinTech 50

It’s time to help decide BusinessCloud’s inaugural FinTech 50 ranking.

The new annual ranking celebrates the UK’s most innovative startups, scaleups and established firms creating original technology for finance and payments.

We have shortlisted 176 firms for potential inclusion. The final FinTech 50 ranking will be determined by a combination of reader votes and selections from an independent judging panel.

You can cast your vote until 23:59 on Sunday 3rd October. Browse the shortlist below and vote for the company you believe to be the most innovative.

The final FinTech 50 ranking will be published online on Monday 25th October. Subscribe to our daily email tech innovation newsletter via the dropdown below when you vote to be among the first to see the results.

Alongside the FinTech 50, we are running RegTech 50 (vote here) and InsurTech 50 (vote here) rankings.
