“With each year’s iteration, the FinTech 100 gains in impact and influence,” said David Longobardi, chief content officer for SourceMedia. “The rankings give financial institutions a unique perspective on a cohort of companies that are vital to their success.”

“Even during these turbulent times, there are some bright spots within the industry for the FinTech providers,” said Jeanne Capachin, research vice president of global banking and insurance for Financial Insights. “Regulatory change typically spurs investment in areas such as analytics, reporting, document management and core systems. Interestingly, the revenue required to qualify and place on the FinTech 100 list for 2008 has increased from US$16M (in 2003) to US$36M (in 2008), showing steady growth in this global, yet challenging, marketplace.”
The 2008 ranking of the top 100 application/service providers in the financial services industry is categorized and evaluated by calendar year-end revenues (CY07) and the percentage of revenues from sales to financial services industry clients. The FinTech 100 includes vendors that derive more than one-third of eligible revenue from the financial services industry. Revenue from network, telecommunications, electronic exchanges and data services providers is ineligible; therefore percentages less than 33% reflect these adjustments within the rankings. All rankings are based on Financial Insights’ revenue estimates including information provided by public and private companies. Financial Insights conducted analysis on more than 400 companies for this recognition.
