Investors in listed emerging market equities now have around 100 fintechs they can own. The investable universe is likely to grow further, given a burgeoning IPO pipeline, particularly in the payments space.

Our Tellimer EM Fintech 50 portfolio consists of leading fintech names across 22 countries, with exposure to the full suite of products via a wide variety of business models.

Over the past year, an equal-weighted portfolio of these 50 fintech names would have delivered a total return of 86% (in US$ terms). A market cap-weighted portfolio would have delivered a 38% return over the same period. Both measures have diverged significantly since mid-February, since when the largest cap names have come under pressure. These include US-listed Chinese firms such as KE Holdings and Lufax, which now face significant regulatory uncertainty.

Here, we highlight the 10 largest firms (by market cap) within our portfolio. As with the overall portfolio, there is a skew towards Chinese and payments firms. Together, these 10 firms account for around 65% of the overall value of the portfolio (on a market cap basis).

We also highlight the top 10 best performing names in our portfolio.
