The Top 50 Fintechs in Europe by Valuation
Whilst it is true that the UK wins in terms of valuation overall, the Top 3 companies by valuation are not in the UK. Adyen, a payments provider registered in Netherlands, takes the top spot with a valuation of $8.3 billion. In second place it is Nexi, an Italy-based payment/loyalty card/transfer/Fx provider valued at $8.2 billion, and Sweden’s Klarna, a payment provider, in third place with a valuation of S5.5 billion. Names like N26, Oaknorth Monzo and Transferwise are in the Top 10, as might be expected. It is good to see that there are three neobanks in the Top 10.
