An international jury of 22 people has decided that Sentifi and the insurance broker Knip are the most innovative and leading FinTech startups in Switzerland this year. The two companies get a prize of 36,000 Swiss francs together and an invitation to “Accenture’s FinTech Innovation Lab“ in London, which brings together the leading FinTech companies in Europe. The main argument of the jury for choosing Sentifi is the fast-growing global reach of the company and the unlimited scalability of Sentifi’s business model.

Sentifi helps asset managers, analysts, brokers, investor relation managers, self-directed investors and journalists to find the quickest, reliable and most comprehensive global overview about events and market attention affecting financial assets and listed companies. Sentifi’s unique approach is to structure unstructured financial data from news, blogs and social media, identify and rank the sources for their relevance and apply self-learning algorithms and a financial expert system to extract insights from the content. The results are based on 2.6 million sources. Sentifi presents the results graphically in widgets, which are viewed more than 30 million times per month. In 2018, these numbers are expected to increase to 100 million sources and 250 million page impressions. Founded in 2012, Sentifi today employs more than 70 highly educated people.
