For the second consecutive year, Gold-i has been identified as one of the world’s most influential FinTech companies, following an assessment of over 2,000 companies in the sector.

The list of influential FinTech companies was compiled for The Financial Technologist Magazine by a panel of expert judges from some of the most respected companies in the financial services industry including Barclays, Lloyds Banking, EY and Credit Agricole.

The judges identified a total of 175 companies who they believe are shaping and influencing the global FinTech scene. Gold-i is the only FX trading technology specialist on the list, which also includes MetroBank, Funding Circle, Coinbase, Ripple, Monzo and Mambu.

Whilst the FinTech companies are not ranked, The Financial Technologist also compiled a list entitled ‘The Power 20’ which consists of 20 organisations who received the most votes from the judges. Gold-i has been included in this list.

Toby Babb, CEO, Harrington Starr Group, who spearheaded the initiative and took part in the judging process said, “The judges identified companies which stand out in the FinTech sector and have demonstrated innovation, growth and best practice.

The judges were particularly impressed by Gold-i, not only for its technology and global growth ambitions but also for its ethos and corporate values. Gold-i was a deserving winner of our Ultimate FinTech Workplace Award 2018 and thoroughly deserves recognition in our Power 20 list 2019.”

Tom Higgins, CEO, Gold-i added, “We are delighted to have been recognised by such a prestigious and informed panel of judges and particularly proud to have made it onto the Power 20 list.

“Last year, our tenth anniversary year, saw the development of a number of major new initiatives at Gold-i that continue to drive the market forward, particularly in terms of advanced risk management, multi-asset liquidity management and cryptocurrency trading. From the outset, we have always focused on innovation and we remain committed to pushing boundaries and developing products for which there is a real need in our market.”
