2017 Fintech Disruptors Report

Mapping the fintech bridge in the open source era.

A break from the medieval past.

This second edition of our review of fintech trends and perspectives across Europe, the Middle East and Africa reveals the extent of the progress made so far in bridging the divide between new fintech innovators and established financial institutions. It also explains the mutually beneficial reasons for what at times appears an unwieldy alliance.

The report takes in the findings from an industry-wide survey of banks and established financial institutions, fintech start-ups and ecosystem participants alongside insights from over 20 interviews with financial institutions across Europe, fintech founders, investors and enterprise-level technology firms.

Significantly, nearly two years into the “fintech revolution” the report makes clear that the real journey has only just begun. As the fusion of the two sides gathers pace in the years ahead, and the full scale advantages of the agility of new digital entrants penetrate deeper into the old banking fortress, the research reveals widespread recognition that a platform-based approach to financial services delivery will, in time, transform twenty-first century finance, and finally enable the fortress to break free from the constraints of its medieval origins.

There will be several false dawns and plenty of failures, on both sides of the bridge, along the way. McKinsey estimates that there may be as many as 12,000 fintech start-ups out there. A number that will continue to grow as generational adoption patterns in mature markets, and smartphone availability in fast growing ones, peak. For those businesses with the stamina and institutional knowhow to go the distance however, the rewards will be worth the wait.

We hope you find this year’s report a valuable weapon as you weigh your approach to the era of open source innovation and we look forward to hearing more tales from the quest in the year ahead.
