Top 120 FinTech Influencers You Need To Know in Asia

Collaboration within the global FinTech industry is on the rise, and Asia continues to dominate the market with innovation in products, continued investments and several experts setting up base in this part of the world. Fintech Asia had earlier gauged FinTech talents to release a list of top FinTech influencers. We have updated our exhaustive list, adding even more FinTech hustlers you need to know about and follow…

We ranked the top FinTech influencers based on their Klout score, i.e. their social media influence. Klout score is an indicator of influence and presence that is calculated using social media data from LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and many other online sources. Similar to how Google’s search engine ranks the relevance of every web page, Klout ranks the social influence of profiles online.

In case you think we have missed someone, please drop us a line on info@fintechasia.net with a name or Twitter handle of your recommendation. 🙂

P.S. – We’ll release the next issue of top influencers in the next quarter.
