The digital finance scene in Hamburg is lively and diverse, with companies operating in every area from Big Data analysis, personal financial assistants, and payment solutions through to instant credit comparison engines. Our Fintech monitor categories and profiles the city’s Fintech companies in detail.
‘Fintech’ is a portmanteau of the words “financial” and “technology” and refers to companies, primarily start-ups, dealing with how financial services can be digitised. Their aim is to apply technological solutions to existing approaches and thus to change, simplify, and improve the world of finance. As the categorisation above makes clear, companies in Hamburg are doing this in a variety of ways. The city already counts over 40 Fintech companies, which means that over 10% of the estimated 350 organisations in digital finance in Germany are based here.
We have profiled all of the Fintech companies registered with us across all 12 categories.
