About the List
Fourth annual WealthTech100 list announced to recognize the tech companies transforming the global investment and banking industries. The new WealthTech100 list for 2022 was launched by specialist research firm FinTech Global. The prestigious ranking recognizes the world’s most innovative technology solution providers that address the digital transformation challenges and opportunities faced by investment firms, private banks and financial advisors. The WealthTech sector has experienced rapid growth over the last two years as the huge increase in digital financial products and remote client communications due to COVID-19 restrictions has accelerated the need for innovation. On the current trajectory, the global WealthTech market is projected to reach $11.9bn by 2030.
Thus, it’s not surprising this year’s process to identify the 100 WealthTech innovation leaders was more competitive than ever. A panel of analysts and industry experts voted from a list of more than 1,200 businesses. The finalists were recognized for their innovative use of technology to solve a significant industry problem, or to generate efficiency improvements across the investment value chain.
FinTech Global director Richard Sachar said, “The rise of digital distribution channels and online financial products has opened new client segments for investment firms and financial advisors. As a result, businesses that fail to keep up with the latest technologies and innovation will be less competitive and lose market share over time. The WealthTech100 list helps senior decision-makers in the industry filter through all the vendors in the market by highlighting the leading companies in areas such as client acquisition, financial planning, portfolio management and digital brokerage.” The WealthTech100 is an annual list of 100 of the world’s most innovative WealthTech companies selected by a panel of industry experts and analysts. These are the companies every leader in wealth and asset management, private banking and financial advisory needs to know about as they consider and develop their digital transformation strategies and new customer propositions.
The previous WealthTech100 lists received widespread attention. Companies that won places on the list generated huge awareness among investment firms and the wider asset management community. Many were approached directly by financial institutions and asset managers while others got a warmer reception from prospective clients and partners. The list has been updated for 2022 to recognize the next-generation of solution providers shaping the future of the investment industry. The list aims to help senior executives and investment professionals evaluate which digital wealth management and financial advisory models have market potential and are most likely to succeed and have a lasting impact on the industry.
