CB Insights首席执行官Anand Sanwal在一份声明中表示，去年公布第一次Fintech名单时，相关创企累计融资230亿美元，其中有30轮超过1亿美元，而今年的名单计算选用了最新的CB Insights Mosaic算法，新增了113家创企，同时覆盖了保险技术、消费银行和资本市场等多个领域。
A new report on the explosion of financial startups has found that at least 30 of them have now attained unicorn valuations. The finding is part of the second annual Fintech 250 list published by research firm CB Insights.
“After we named the inaugural Fintech 250 in 2017, they went on to raise $23 billion, including 30 rounds of over $100 million,” said CB Insights CEO Anand Sanwal, in a statement. “This year, we’ve added 113 new companies to the Fintech 250, using the CB Insights Mosaic algorithm, and the group is broad, covering everything from insurance tech to consumer banking to capital markets tech.”
Not surprisingly, 22 companies on the list have had exits, with half going the IPO route. But even as some depart, new ones arise. The report says 113 new companies are on the list this year.
And the phenomenon is global. At least 44 percent of the companies are not in the U.S., and they are spread across 31 countries.
China’s Ant Financial ranks as the top fundraiser on the list, with $19.1 billion over four rounds.
