FinTech Map

Georgia is the epicenter of a growing segment of the financial services industry – a sector known as Financial Technology, or FinTech. This sector encompasses the product and service companies that support the technology needs of the financial services industry and, ultimately, the payment-processing infrastructure of the economy.

Georgia FinTech companies generate annual revenue of more than $72 billion, placing the state third in the nation, behind only New York and California. Together, the banking, insurance, and capital markets consistently spend more on technology than any other industry grouping.

Georgia and Atlanta’s prominence as a leading international hub for financial technology is much in part due to the extraordinary leadership role Fintech Atlanta has brought in partnership with its member companies and affiliated trade associations serving to promote the industry to policymakers. Fintech Atlanta brings the industry into focus under one umbrella, providing Georgia's "Transaction Alley" a platform to communicate the industry's value to legislators and regulators. Educational outreach to policymakers in Georgia is an essential role of Fintech Atlanta in order to maintain a beneficial regulatory and legislative ecosystem for fintech companies to come, thrive, and grow.
