FORBES 50 – The Most Innovative Fintech Companies In 2019

While crypto prices and ICOs collapsed, overall investment in fintech surged in 2018, hitting $55 billion worldwide, double the year before, Accenture reports. Big fintechs are getting bigger—19 of the Forbes 2019 Fintech 50 are valued at $1 billion or more.

But there are also 20 startups making their first appearance on our fourth edition of this list. Two areas with notable additions: payments technology and companies targeting the underserved, be they immigrants without U.S. credit histories or hourly workers living paycheck to paycheck. All our picks are private companies and have operations, customers or impact in the U.S., even if they’re not based here.
