What is Fintech?

At CFTE, the definition of fintech is understood as “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, huge tech companies such as Ant Financial, but also financial enterprises such as Citi or Prudential. In the table below, CFTE has determined to exclude the financial institutions but included the mobile payment companies, where the role of technology is more predominant.

What is market capitalization?

For listed companies, CFTE uses Google Finance as the market capitalization. For private enterprises, we use press releases, articles, 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 an overview list?

Not by a long way. There are firms missing and figures change on a daily basis. CFTE has decided to only list the companies with a valuation in excess of $1billion (the “unicorns startups” in startup speak).

Latest updates

Affirm corrected status from private to listed (March 2021)

Sofi update with Spac for Q2 2021 (March 2021)

Klarna valuation updated to $31bn (March 2021)

Chime valuation updated to $14.5bn. The previous valuation from Yahoo was wrong. (March 2021)

Stripe valuation reported at $95bn after a new funding round of $600m. Was previously rumored at $115bn (March 2021)

Starling Bank valuation reported at $1.9bn (post) after raising Series D of £272m (March 2021)
