Introduction Dear Reader, We are pleased to present the third annual ‘Fintech100’, the best fintech innovators, this year from 23 countries around the world.

sectors include: payments, lending, wealth, insurance and - new this year – regtech where we are seeing rapid value creation as the pace of disruption increases.

The Fintech100 are those companies using technology to their best advantage and driving disruption within the financial services industry. These companies have a commitment to excellence, superior customer experience and a demonstrated ability to do something in a market better than everyone else.

The Fintech100 in 2016 includes:

The Fintech100 includes the leading 50 fintech companies across the globe, and the most intriguing 50 ‘Emerging Stars’ – exciting new fintechs with bold, disruptive and potentially game-changing ideas. The Fintech100 in 2016 includes: 35 companies from The Americas, 29 companies from the EMEA, 14 companies from Asia, 12 companies from the UK, and 10 companies from Australia and New Zealand. The rise of fintech in China continued this year, with Hangzhou-based Ant Financial taking the top spot in the 50 Established Innovators list, and Qudian, Lufax, Zhong An and JD Finance also in the top ten. Oscar, at number three, is the both highest ranked insurtech and the highest ranked US-based company. The continued dominance of China, which rapidly rose last year to take the top spot, tells only part of the story. We are seeing the emergence of exciting fintech players in countries across the world, from India to Israel, from Portugal to the Philippines. In fact, the Top 50 Emerging Stars list for 2016 includes companies from 23 countries, including Chile, the Philippines, and Mexico for the first time. Through our report we have analysed a number of sectors within the financial services industry. These

32 lending companies, 18 payments companies, 12 insurance companies, 8 regtech companies, 8 data and analytics companies, 6 wealth companies, 5 digital currencies companies, 5 blockchain companies, 3 capital markets companies, 2 crowd funding companies, and 1 accounting company. The Fintech100 2016 demonstrates the acceleration of the disruption taking place in the global financial services industry, with more capital than ever being invested around the world in startups that are creating new financial products and solutions. These 100 companies have attracted an additional US$14.6bn of capital in the last 12 months. One of the striking features of the list is the tip in the balance towards disruptors, those who challenge the existing market, over enablers, those who help incumbents do better work. With 92% of the top 50 in the disruptor category the message for the financial services sector is that now more than ever it is time to embrace innovation to stave off the threat of fintech startups. The report highlights a growing and vibrant global financial services technology sector, one where new ideas are able to build the traction they need to attract large amounts of capital. For the consumer, this can only be good news with new ideas leading to better choice and a sector that is re-aligning to place customer needs at the centre of how it does business.

We’ve selected the ‘Fintech100’ following extensive global research and analysis based on data relating to five factors: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

Total capital raised Rate of capital raising Geographic diversity Sectorial diversity X-factor: degree of product, service and business model innovation (a subjective measure that is applied only with respect to companies appearing on the 50 Emerging Stars list)

The Top 10 companies in the Fintech100 for 2016 are: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.

Ant Financial Qudian Oscar Lufax ZhongAn Atom Bank Kreditech Avant Sofi JD Finance

The above assessment criteria reflects the fact that venture capital invested is a relevant measure of innovation which in turn fuels enduring competitive advantage. Venture capitals seek this enduring competitive advantage over and above anything else.

You can read all about these companies, and many others, in the following pages.

The companies named in this report all take a welldeserved position as the ‘leading 100’. Nonetheless, there are many other exciting and creative fintech companies around the world that are established and emerging.

Yours Faithfully,

We hope that this report is just the start of the fintech future, as we expect that the companies featured in this report are just the tip of the iceberg for the changes that will occur in financial services over the next decade.

Point allows homeowners to unlock wealth from their home equity without monthly payments or interest. On the flip side, for the first time, institutional investors can now purchase fractional interests in residential properties — a $26T industry. Point is a home equity marketplace. They take the biggest single asset that consumers have - i.e. the home - and make it completely liquid, divisible and tradable. Point's first product will let homeowners 'sell' fractional equity in their home. Historically, one's home has been their greatest asset, however homeowners have not been unable to unlock the wealth a home holds. Point is changing that by making home equity a liquid and tradable asset class and by allowing homeowners to tap equity in their home without monthly payments.

Company Description

Tagline: Blockchain Technology Located: Netherlands Year Founded: 2014 Key People: Nicholas Eastham, Co-Founder Gaston Hendriks, Co-Founder Henri de Jong, Co-Founder Website: http://quantoz.com/ Category: Payments Ownership: Private

The near future will bring an influx of smart devices connected to the Internet. The amount of transactions between consumers and devices, and even more important between devices will grow exponentially. This will create a need for (instant) financial settlement of transactions on a much larger scale than the current payment market handles. Micro-payments for micro-services, instant settlement between software appliances anywhere on the globe, and machines holding their own payment deposits have not been anticipated within the traditional banking infrastructure. Quasar provides the infrastructure for payment settlement in the Internet of Things (IoT) and for transactions where immediate, global and/ or irreversible settlement is desirable, like the `information goods and services industries.
