The European fintechs to watch in 2022

Hot startups from the hottest European sector

European fintech doesn’t need much of an introduction.

The three most highly-valued startups in Europe — Klarna,, and Revolut — are fintechs, and so are 35% of unicorns. Friendly regulators and eager consumers, as well as the tailwind of increased digital transformation needs have continued to buoy the sector.

While many of Europe’s biggest fintechs are household names, we’ve created a list of some of the promising — if maybe not as well known — fintech startups in Europe in 2022.

While we prioritise younger startups, we included all relevant ones, and at least one per European country.
