RiskFirst listed on the inaugural FinTech 50 Watchlist, a guide to game-changing financial services technologies across Europe.

London, 15th March 2013 RiskFirst has been placed on the 2013 FinTech50 Watchlist, a shortlist of fifty companies in Europe that are redefining financial services through technology. The list, a collaborative project by The CEO Agenda, ICON Corporate FinanceHotwireSilicon Valley Bank and Fox Williams, is the first of an annual exercise to track one of the fastest moving sectors in technology.

The inaugural FinTech 50 Watchlist is based on the expertise of the Watchlist Panel, ten industry leaders from across the financial services and technology industry. The panel convened at the end of 2012 to debate and select the top companies that demonstrate the potential to become a game-changer in financial technology or the competitive staying power to continue being one.

“We are delighted to be included on the inaugural FinTech 50 list alongside other distinguished names that are all, in their own way, redefining the way that the financial services industry operates,” says Ben Reid, President of RiskFirst Analytics. “In the pensions sector, technology has the potential to completely revolutionise the way that pension risk is measured and managed, and the FinTech50 inclusion is recognition of the important role that RiskFirst – and our unique risk management platform PFaroe – is playing in the industry’s transformation.”
