Who knew? More than half of the world's top 10 most innovative companies in finance are Finovate alums.

Don't just take our word for it. Fast Company published its roster of innovation in the financial space as part of their quest to find those companies that are "creating radical new approaches to move cash from one place to another." 

And among such widely-known and talked-about entities as Square and Bitcoin, we find more than a handful of innovators who have used the Finovate stage to help show their technology to the world.

Take a look at the companies below, accompanied by Fast Company's take on just what makes each innovator truly unique.

eToroLogo.jpg

eToro is marking their second year as an investment network, announcing a handful of metrics and milestones as part of the celebration:

  • 50 million trades processed
  • 3 million registered users
  • 200,000 active investors

eToro allows investors to invest together, sharing trading information and/or following "top traders" who may have as many as 9,000 other investors following their every move in the market. The platform includes safeguards, such as a tool that will prevent investors from investing more than 20% with any one trader. Investors can participate in eToro for as little as $50. And the company is currently offering a $20 gift card to new users.

eToro was founded in 2007, and is led by CEO Jonathan Assia and CTO David Ring. The company has raised nearly $34 million in funding, including a $15 million round in March.

eToro demonstrated their technology last year as part of FinovateFall, winning Best of Show for the fourth time. See them in action here.

We wrapped up FinovateFall in New York City about a week ago. Over the course of two days, 64 companies give seven-minute demos to an audience of around 1,100. We've summarized the information and presented in our latest Finovate Report, Fall Edition.

Introducing:

The Best New Products at FinovateFall 2012

This post-show wrap-up is designed to help those that weren't there get a better understanding of the major themes. And for those that were in attendance, it's a box score to compare with your own notes and impressions.

In the report, we looked at the three big trends that emerged at FinovateFall:

    • Small businesses get the same financial tools as bigger businesses
    • Security moves past the PIN 
    • Beyond plastic, the mobile wallet is here

FinovateFall 2012 Best of Show Winners

Thumbnail image for FF12_BestofShow_col_high.jpg

Our fifth annual FinovateFall in NYC concluded an hour ago. After seeing 64 demos over two packed days, the audience voted for their three favorites each day. The top eight overall were named Best of Show (see notes).

The winners (in alphabetic order):

  • Credit Sesame for its Financial Fitness Indicator that gives users a comprehensive view of their financial situation
  • Dashlane for its instant login and checkout featureFFBOSWinners2.jpg
  • Dynamics for its Triple Interface card, allowing for tap, swipe, or EMV payments
  • eToro for its social trading index 
  • LearnVest for its certified financial planning capabilities and mobile app
  • MoneyDesktop for its PFM platform and bubble budgets 
  • PayTap for its social bill-payment platform
  • ShopKeep POS for its tablet-based POS

We'll have videos of all 64 demos posted at Finovate.com as fast as possible (probably two to three weeks out).

Thanks to everyone who presented, attended, tweeted, networked, blogged, tolerated the Internet hiccups and helped push fintech forward. You are the best! 

----------

Notes on methodology:
1. Only audience members NOT associated with demoing companies were eligible to vote. Finovate employees did not vote.   
2. Attendees were encouraged to note their favorites as the day went on and choose three favorites from just the demos of that day. Ballots were turned in at the end of the last demo session each day. 
3. The exact written instructions given to attendees: "Please rate (the companies) on the basis of demo quality and potential impact of the innovation demoed. Note: Ballots with more than three companies circled will not be counted." 
4. The eight companies appearing on the highest percentage of submitted ballots were named Best of Show.
5. Go here for a list of previous Best of Show winners.

eToro Launches a Social Trading Index

Thumbnail image for eToroLogo.jpg
After the break, eToro took the stage with its social trading index:

"The Social Trading Index is an evolution of eToro's CopyTrader technology, which enables users to copy the trading activity of any user in the network in order to create a diversified people-based portfolio. As a result of offering the ability to aggregate several users into a single social trading index, users are able to benefit from an even more diversified and controlled investment portfolio. Through CopyTrader and Social Index people have now been transformed into a new asset class, paving the way for a social approach to investing."

Product Launched: August 2012

HQ Location: Limassol, Cyprus
Company Founded: 2007
Metrics: 190 employees with offices in the United States, Europe & Australia, $31.6M raised to date, more than 2.5M registered users
