Survey Found 26 % Of Islamic Fintech Founders Are Female

At least one in four Islamic fintech founders are ladies, according to a recent survey by the Global Islamic Fintech Report.

This is higher than the conventional fintech companies, with only 17% of founders who are female.

The survey is based on 180 companies worldwide across various sub-segments: fintechs, accelerators and incubators, consultancies, financial institutions and investors.

These companies are identified as either Shariah-compliant or are offering Shariah-compliant solutions.

The growth sectors within fintech that are expected to perform in 2020 and beyond are the P2P crowdfunding, and challenger banking sectors, with the highest growth expected in Southeast Asia.

The survey did not name the fintech companies that have female founders.
