Akoni named in most influential fintech companies list

Digital cash treasury manager Akoni has been named in Harrington Starr's 2018 list of the 100 most influential fintech companies.

The financial services technology and sales recruitment firm has published its inaugural list recognising the companies that will shape and influence the global fintech market in the year ahead.

Akoni – which helps SMEs select the best possible interest rates for their savings – was chosen from more than 2,000 companies for its potential to drive innovation and improve the financial services industry.

The list was compiled by a panel of experts from EY, the London Stock Exchange, Lloyds Banking Group, Baringa, CBPE Capital, Seismic Foundry, Innovate Finance, the Realization Group, London & Partners and Financial Technologist Magazine.

Felicia Meyerowitz Singh, co-founder and CEO at Akoni (pictured above), said: “We are honoured to be recognised by Harrington Starr as one of the 100 most influential fintech companies for 2018.

“In 2015, we embarked on a mission to fix a situation where small businesses are denied access to decent interest rates for their cash, while large corporates make great returns.

“We are very proud to have gained the recognition of judges from some of the UK’s most influential financial institutions, incubators and accelerators for our commitment to delivering on that mission.”

Akoni has also announced that it’s planning to expand its offerings to SMEs and work with banks in the coming year.
