Hot on the heels of our Sunday Times Tech Track 100 ranking, we’re thrilled to be recognized as #1 on this year’s FinTech50, selected from over 2,000 fintechs across Europe. The list is judged by a panel of international experts from firms including: Standard Chartered, UBS, Mastercard, Barclays, HSBC, J.P. Morgan, ING, Stripe and venture capital firms Accel and Softbank.
Founded in 2012 as a guide to an emerging sector, the FinTech50 recognizes fintech innovation in Europe by listing firms disrupting the world of banking. In presenting Onfido, FinTech50 noted Onfido’s 1,500 customers world-wide, 342% sales growth in 2018 and noted that Onfido is “setting the global identity standard for access and driving financial inclusion.”
“It certainly feels like a breakout year,” said Husayn Kassai, Onfido CEO and co-founder. “We’re firing on all cylinders: innovation, winning business, bringing aboard exceptional talent, expanding globally, and gaining recognition and accolades.”
“We’re helping to re-establish trust and increase access to services by offering secure and remote identity verification. Our mission is to create an open world where identity is the key to access, and we’re engaged in an ecosystem that is working toward a new, decentralized, consumer-empowering portable identity that will help us get to a world free of fraud, with access for all.”
