For the last five years Fintech Americas’ Financial Innovators of the Americas Awards has recognized and honored the innovative banks and financial players across the Americas that are leading the way in transforming their organizations and the lives of the customers they serve. The Awards seek to identify, highlight and promote the individuals, teams and projects that are re-imagining finance in the Americas to be faster, more efficient and more inclusive. Since 2015 over 100 awards have been given out with award nominations growing 50% year over year. Given the growing interest in the awards throughout the Americas (Mexico, Brazil, South America, the Andean region, Central America and the Caribbean), the format allows for both country-specific recognition, via the Country Awards and cross-regional recognition, via the Disrupt Awards.

The Country Awards – leveling the playing field and opening up the innovation opportunity to all
The Disrupt Awards – the ultimate recognition of the biggest and boldest financial innovations happening across the Americas

The 5th Annual Financial Innovators of the Americas Award program will put a spotlight on the financial service innovations and ideas that are resulting in faster, more efficient and customer-centric organizations, products and services. Nominees are encouraged to submit across any of the following categories:
• Disruptive Innovation in Financial Services
