Companies recognized on this year's list operate in and serve companies and consumers in a wide range of financial services including banking and mortgages, insurance, payments and financial advisory.

"Promontory MortgagePath's greatest asset is our workforce, and in the midst of an unprecedented year for the mortgage industry, our team quickly pivoted to adjust to the unique operational challenges created by the pandemic in order to ensure the success of our clients," said Promontory MortgagePath Chief Operating Officer Debora Aydelotte. "Given this award is driven by our own employee survey responses, we are incredibly proud to be recognized as one of the Best Places to Work in Financial Technology not only by Arizent, but also by our internal team."

"This year, the fintech industry became a larger and more important sector of our economy," said David Evans, chief content officer at Arizent. "This ranking helps highlight companies that have generous employee policies and positive cultures, and can help serve as a guide to job seekers in this competitive industry."
