Meet the 40 Fastest Growing Fintechs in Asia Pacific According to the Financial Times

Meet the 40 Fastest Growing Fintechs in Asia Pacific According to the Financial Times

by March 27, 2024

In the sixth annual compendium of 500 burgeoning companies across the Asia Pacific (APAC) by the Financial Times and Statista, technology enterprises constitute nearly a third of the 2024 roster, with 8% of the APAC’s fastest-growing entities being fintech companies.

The World Bank flagged in October 2023 that the region’s burgeoning economies would decelerate to 4.5% growth rate in 2024, amid China’s subdued dynamics and diminished productivity elsewhere across APAC contributing to this bleaker forecast for the fastest-growing fintech companies.

While the reasons for slowing growth might be far-ranging in 2024, what is the criteria used to determine the fastest-growing companies, including fintech, in the APAC region?

To qualify for the FT and Statista roster of the APAC region’s fastest-growing fintech companies in 2024, firms needed to meet certain earnings criteria. These included bringing in revenue no less than US$100,000 in 2019 (or the currency value equivalent as of 2019); earning revenues of no less than US$1 million in 2022 (or the currency value equivalent as of 2022); revenue growth from 2019 to 2022 also needs to be predominantly organic (i.e., “internally” generated).

More about the Financial Times and Statista criteria and data points to decide this year’s entrants can be found at the bottom of this article. Without further ado, here is the 2024 list of the top 30 fastest-growing fintech companies in APAC, as determined by the Financial Times and Statista.

More about the FT’s High-Growth Companies Asia-Pacific 2024 ranking:

Due to data verification challenges, Chinese firms are excluded from the FT/Statista tally, yet the nation’s economic woes are affecting the broader region, with the government battling stimulus efforts amidst a real estate downturn, dwindling consumer spending, and scant investor faith.

The minimal compound annual growth rate (CAGR) requisite for this year’s inclusion was 15.1%, a decrease from the previous year’s 16.3%. Growth rates are rounded to one decimal place in the table, but ranking hinges on three decimal places.

In terms of industry, the IT and software sector represents 30% of the fastest-growing APAC companies in the 2024 ranking. The subsequent leading industry is fintech, financial services and insurance, making up 8%.

To qualify for the roster of the APAC region’s fastest-growing fintech companies in 2024, firms needed to meet certain criteria besides revenue targets, including being an independent entity — not a subsidiary or branch of any sort. And firms need to be headquartered within one of these 13 territories in the Asia-Pacific region: Australia, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam.

Nevertheless, the list isn’t exhaustive as numerous swiftly growing firms are privately owned and don’t disclose detailed financial data, while others opt out of revealing their revenue figures or participating for various reasons.
