The four finalists for the Swiss Fintech Awards 2020 have been revealed, with the winners to be decided at the Fintech 2020 conference on 12 March 

Earlier this year, on 11 January, the Swiss Fintech Awards confirmed its 10 nominees - five fintechs under the 'early stage' category and five under the 'growth stage' category.

The former plays host to those fintechs with a Swiss connection, but which are yet to have a product-market fit; the latter is designed for fintechs with a Swiss connection and that have a successful product on the market, a functioning business model and clear growth aspirations. Those 10 nominations can be viewed here.

The finalists

Those finalists chosen from the 10 nominees were announced on 28 February, with the winners set to be announced at the 12 March Fintech 2020 conference.

The selecting jury consists of more than 20 fintech experts, including Tobias Bassi, Head Corporate Venture Capital PostFinance, fintech investor Marc P. Bernegger, and Anke Bridge Haux, Head Digitalisaion & Products at Credit Suisse AG. 

They chose as finalists:
