The Global Fintech Index 2020 City Rankings

230+ cities across 65 countries

Executive Summary

Fintech exists to solve global problems. Of access – such as in emerging markets where banking economics stop the poor from getting a bank account. Of speed – where old infrastructure slows the sending of money, receipt of payments or makes international trade difficult. Or of cost and convenience – by making it easier to pay, or cheaper to borrow.

There’s another problem too. An industry founded on principles to make the world better, needs a global index to track progress, and benchmark its success. With our founding partners we have built a global coalition to promote the values of fintech – and help it meet its potential to improve access to financial services, and the connectedness of countries and regions.

This city rankings report is the first glimpse into the mission of promoting growth and adoption of progressive, inclusive financial services everywhere.
