How Our FinTech Control Tower Works

The FinTech Control Tower combines our data and analytics, consulting, and research expertise into a package of services that can scale up to suit a client’s needs. It has two main components:

  • An Insights Platform. Digital tools let subscribers conduct their own research to identify and compare industry players, trace funding transactions and other connections among companies, analyze market trends, and read BCG’s research reports. These proprietary tools include the Atlas Search Navigator for classifying fintechs across technology, business, and product lines and drilling down into precise subcategories; Smart Visualize for creating dynamic maps, trend charts, and other data visualizations; and the Fintech Profile Pages for diving deep into startups’ partnerships, use cases, and financials.
  • Research and Strategy. Clients with more advanced needs can get customized research intelligence and work with our fintech consultants directly. We provide insights into underlying market drivers as well as guidance on scouting out, vetting, and forming partnerships or executing fintech investments. With the FinTech Control Tower, clients can accelerate their innovation and growth strategies, identify future opportunities, and gain a competitive advantage.

These services are made possible by our global knowledge base of more than 27,000 global fintech, insurtech, and regtech companies. It is powered by our team of fintech consulting experts, our network of industry experts and founders, and our partnerships with data providers and regional associations. A scalable architecture then streamlines the information, making it simple for users to build and edit data sets while also ensuring that information is secure.
