New report: Reputation and the future of European fintech

MHP's Financial Services team launch new report exploring the European fintech market


The European fintech landscape has experienced a turbulent two years, from the pursuit of unicorn status to a period marked by financial cutbacks and layoffs. However, through our market-research sister agency, Savanta, we surveyed over 50 of the most senior C-Suite leaders and executives from fintechs across the continent and found that a renewed sense of optimism is now palpable. What’s more, integrated communications has never been more important in powering  growth, nor has it seen such support from this group. 

In our new research report, Reputation and the future of European fintech: Powering growth through effective communications, we found that 77% of fintech leaders are expecting business growth in the next year. This optimism is coupled with a shift in strategy, as fintech leaders apply the lessons from past challenges to future growth plans. The focus has moved from relentless expansion to achieving profitability, with 68% of leaders saying that this is a top priority.

  • Key drivers of growth for fintech leaders over the next 12 months
