The biggest US-listed fintech companies are leading the digitization of the financial services industry.
The top fintech companies are transforming banking, payments and financial services around the world.
However, the fintech space can be a little tricky for the average investor to navigate. In the recent past, the sector was primarily dominated by private startups, making it difficult for investors to get into the fintech market.
Now the situation is changing. KPMG notes that “the pipeline of fintech IPOs is growing globally,” and states that more stock exchanges are opening up to technology listings in a bid to compete with the NASDAQ. That means more fintech innovators are joining the ranks of publicly traded stocks.
To help investors separate the wheat from the chaff, the Investing News Network has compiled a list of the top fintech companies on US-listed exchanges based on market capitalization. Data for this top fintech stocks list was current as of May 3, 2022, and was put together using TradingView’s stock screener.
