Onfido, Monzo and Revolut have topped The FinTech50 2019, which charts the biggest and most influential FinTech businesses in Europe.

The FinTech50 is an annual rundown of the hottest FinTech companies across Europe, listing those 'ones to watch' and covering startups, more established FinTech names and innovative disruptors. It was the first such list in the world to focus on and recognise the achievements of FinTech innovators in Europe and has established itself as a global top 10 organisation in the sector. 

This year's list, announced on 18 September, was chosen from some 2,000 FinTechs in Europe. Judging is carried out by a team of industry experts from many of the largest and most recognisable financial organisations in the world, including Standard Chartered, Mastercard Labs, JP Morgan, Barclays UK Ventures, AXA UK Group, Stripe, Amazon Web Services and more. A full list can be found here.
