  • The American startup investment analysis platform published its annual Fintech 250 list, in which it names the most supported companies in digital financial services.

  • The Mexican financial Konfío is the only Mexican company included in the list and within the top 20.

CB Insights released the third edition of Fintech 250 , a list made up of the top 250 private entities that use technology to offer financial services.

Konfío, a fintech specialized in working capital loans, is the only Mexican company included in the list, in addition, it appears within the top 20 of the best-funded fintech in the world, this in part due to the recent investment rounds carried out by SoftBank and Goldman Sachs.

Fintech 250 is a selection from the CB Insights Intelligence Unit that analyzes 16 thousand companies, including applicants and nominees from different sectors such as digital banking, insurance, capital markets and cryptocurrencies, among others. Considering only those included in the final list, they add up to an approximate of $ 49.2 billion dollars in investment raised during different agreements since 2015, covering a spectrum that goes from startups in their early stages to unicorns.

The annual Fintech 250 list was designed considering different factors such as data presented by companies, their business models, their status in the market and the score given by Mosaic, the algorithm developed by CB Insights with the ability to measure current health and potential growth of private companies.
