Key Insights:

  • The highest growth fintechs have risk solutions that support rapid expansion – even in complex arenas like cryptocurrencies.
  • Top performers don’t swap speed for rigor in onboarding. Over 80% of hypergrowth fintechs complete KYC checks in less than 24 hours.
  • Active and regular risk profile checks are critical – but many low growth enterprises never reassess customer and partner profiles after onboarding.
