Deloitte has recently published ‘Connecting Global Fintech: Hub Review 2016’ (Sep 2016) which is a study of over 21 hubs across the globe, providing an Index Performance Score for the following areas:

– Global Financial Centre Index (GFCI)

– Doing Business 2016 (DB)

– Global Innovation Index (GII)

– The study shown the top 5 hubs

with the best (lowest) Index Performance Scores are: London, Singapore, New York, Hong Kong, and Silicon Valley.

‘These Hubs already have the appropriate ingredients (i.e. specialised talent, progressive regulatory bodies, investment capital, government support, etc.) and the strong collaboration within the ecosystem that is required to develop leading global FinTech sectors, and which are capable of innovating across the financial services and technology landscape.’,

Louise Brett, Lead Partner UK Fintech Deloitte

London

London scored the best Index Performance amongst the other fintech global hubs.

London is the world’s largest financial sector, which has a strong regulatory framework, solid government support and advance technology ecosystem. Some of its top Fintech companies are, Crowdcube, Kantox, LendInvest, Market Invoice, Worldpay and Zopa.

The main challenges that London has as a fintech hub are its high cost of living, office space and labour.

Silicon Valley

Silicon Valley is the land of tech startup from Apple, Google to Facebook. It is also the homeland of many successful fintech startups namely PayPal, LendingClub, Stripe and Prosper. Largest contribution to its success is the ingrained culture of innovation and its expertise in building and scaling businesses into a global company.
