About FintechRanking

Fintech Ranking is the first specialized blog about FinTech

We believe that fintech has become such a serious industry that it needs its own media. As a VC firm focused exclusively on fintech, we carefully scrutinize the industry and regularly publish our analytical research “Money of the Future”, which allows you to monitor the industry development. And we’ve always wanted to launch a public platform, which will become the main source of information for anyone interested in fintech.


Stay FinTech!

    Dear Sir

    I’m writing to you to invite your organisation to be a supporting partner for a fintech event that we’re launching in March 2017. We would love to be working with your organisation to co-promote the event to your members.

    Symbol – The Asian Fintech Summit 2017 will take place in Singapore from March 7-8, 2017 and will bring together all the major fintech parties, from regional banks and insurers to VCs and the start-ups themselves. It is organised by Terrapinn in partnership with The Singapore Fintech Consortium.

    Despite what innovators in London or Silicon Valley might think, Fintech is not just a Western phenomenon. Indeed, it is hard to think of anywhere in the world better positioned to benefit from the transformational impact of fintech than Southeast Asia. From the opportunity to redefine commercial banking operations in Singapore to the financial empowerment of millions in the Philippines, the effect that the fintech revolution will have on the region cannot be overstated.

    Nevertheless, for fintech to have the impact that we know it can, there needs to be a new paradigm for collaboration, sharing and partnership between all stakeholders through the region. That is what this event will enable.

    The 2 day conference and exhibition will have a combination of keynote presentations, breakout tracks, pitching sessions, regional spotlights on the fintech landscape across Asia Pacific and a hackathon. Speakers will be meticulously selected from business leaders, innovators and entrepreneurs.

    You can refer to our current web site –

    Once someone from your organisation can contact me with a name, number and email, I’d be happy to arrange a call to walk you through this in more detail.

    Let me know if you would be interested in a partnership opportunity. I am looking at barter terms that will be mutually beneficial to both parties.

    I look forward to hearing back from you.
