The KPMG Fintech Innovation Challenge, operated by Matchi, opened December 15, 2015 and will close on January 7, 2016. The challenge’s goal is to find six innovative fintech solutions to match with financial institutions and insurance companies at the FinTech Innovation Summit to be held in London on February 10 and 11, 2016.

The organizers are inviting fintech firms and innovators from around the world to enter the challenge and compete for an opportunity to demonstrate to all participating banks and insurance companies at the summit.

Confirmed participants include Caixa Bank (Spain), Bank Hapoalim (Israel), Rabobank (Holland), Nationwide (UK), Westpac (Australia) and Liberty Group (South Africa).

The key focus areas are organized into six fintech themes which form the entry categories for the challenge: next generation payments; blockchain; mobile VAS / mobility; data analytics / credit analytics; wealth tech; and cybersecurity and biometrics for access control.

All entries will be validated and scored against set criteria and one winner will be chosen in each category/ theme. The winning entries will be invited to London to demo their solution to FinTech Innovation Summit banks and insurance companies on February 11, 2016 with winners announced on January 21, 2016.
