Fintech’s Five Hottest Companies

Note From the Publisher:  There are MANY lists of top fintech companies, but when Fortune writes, usually people listen.  We don’t necessarily agree with the choices on this list – or perhaps better put – we don’t think a list of 5 companies can possibly do justice to the massive field that comprises all of fintech.  For instance, Nasdaq’s president has said that they consider themselves a fintech company, so why are they not on the list?  Still each of these is an interesting and innovative leader in fintech, covering blockchain applications in markets and banking, predictive analytics, robos and online loans and payments processing.
