IS Prime is the only Prime of Prime to be included in the list, which was compiled for The Financial Technologist Magazine.

IS Prime has been named one of the world’s most influential financial technology companies, following nominations by a panel of expert judges from some of the most respected companies in the financial services industry including EY, Lloyds Banking and Baringa.

The judges identified around 190 companies from across the globe who they believe are shaping and influencing the global FinTech scene. IS Prime is the only Prime of Prime to be included in the list, which was compiled for The Financial Technologist Magazine.

Toby Babb, CEO, Harrington Starr Group, who spearheaded the initiative and took part in the judging process said, “The judges identified companies with outstanding reputations which have demonstrated innovation, growth and best practice. They were particularly impressed by IS Prime, not only for its proprietary technology and reputation as a market leader but also for its successive year on year growth since its inception.”
