Innovate Finance Reveals Women in Fintech Powerlist 2021

Borsa Italiana Focuses on Derivatives Innovation

The Women in FinTech Powerlist 2021 shines a spotlight on the women leading innovation in financial services. Now in its 7th year, the Powerlist has increasingly attracted a global audience, resulting in applications and nominations from around the world. The 2021 iteration shines a spotlight on 250 women across 9 categories.

A select number of women were chosen for the ‘Standout 45’ distinction by a panel of independent judges. Innovate Finance called on the FinTech ecosystem to nominate and submit applications, and received 1000s of responses, highlighting that there is certainly no lack of female talent within the sector!

We want to congratulate everyone for their hard work and achievements and hope to see you all again for next year’s Powerlist.

Janine Hirt, CEO, Innovate Finance:

“The transformation of financial services is being driven by passionate, inspiring female leaders representing all levels of seniority and all components of the FinTech ecosystem. In their role as entrepreneurs, founders, investors, bankers, communicators, tech experts, and more, it is these outstanding women who are moving the needle and making financial services more sustainable, more effective, and more inclusive for all. Shining a light on the incredible women making a true difference is an honour, and something we look forward to every year here at Innovate Finance.

We want the Powerlist to serve as a tool for inspiring the next generation of female leaders. While we are only able to profile a small number of outstanding women in this list, we hope it serves as a testament and a tribute to all the incredible females that are changing the world every day.  There is so much more to be done in terms in terms of creating a more diverse and equal sector and society, but today let’s celebrate the great achievement that we have made so far, and continue to drive forward even greater change.
