Capgemini and Efma Announce Winners of the Financial NewTech Challenge 2021

Capgemini and Efma announce the winners of the Financial NewTech Challenge 2021. The competition, which recognizes and rewards the most innovative financial NewTechs along with the top collaborations between NewTechs and financial institutions, concluded with a special online ceremony held on September 28.

The challenge is powered by FinTechVisor, a global platform developed by Efma and Capgemini, that enables FinTechs, InsurTechs, RegTechs and Financial NewTechs to showcase their B2B solutions, as well as empowering them with an interactive matchmaking tool to foster new partnerships with financial institutions.

"Since its launch in May 2018, the FinTechVisor portal has developed into a strong and vibrant community of the most innovative FinTechs around the world," said John Berry, CEO of Efma. "The submissions for the 2021 edition demonstrated a clear focus on sustainability and show a shifting of priorities in the industry. These companies are the future of financial services and we look forward to continuing to cultivate a platform where FinTechs can showcase the strength of their propositions and benchmark them against their peers."

"At Capgemini, we strongly believe that the future of financial services relies on effective collaboration between traditional firms and StartUps: traditional firms' need for digital agility and StartUps' need for scale compels mutually beneficial partnerships," said Elias Ghanem, Global Head of Market Intelligence for Capgemini's Financial Services. "As the StartUp ecosystem orchestrator, strongly supporting our clients' continuous needs for innovation, we are proud to unveil the Financial NewTech Challenge 2021 winners."

Following 306 submissions ? a 47% increase from 2020 ? from almost 150 financial institutions around the globe, 1,700 votes were cast to determine this year's impressive winners. One StartUp2 and one ScaleUp3 was selected from each of the four categories: Banking, Payments, Wealth Management, and Insurance along with a final category recognizing the top Financial NewTech Collaboration. Winners were announced during the online event to an audience of key decision-makers, senior executives, and major sector players within the industry. They are as follows:

The winners were selected by a jury of experts (75% weighting of the vote) and online voting accessible to both financial institutions and NewTechs (25% weighting of the vote), according to four criteria: business potential, originality, impact, and wow factor.

During the same event, Efma and Capgemini published the "Efma-Capgemini Financial NewTech Watchlist 2021," which groups the top 100 StartUps and ScaleUps worth observing closely as they help in reshaping the financial services industry landscape in the years to come.
