A Liberty retail business initiative in partnership with Matchi, the challenge invited fintech firms around the world to respond with relevant, implementable solutions aligned to two customer-focused categories.

The global response to the Liberty Fintech Challenge included implementable solutions from 30+ fintech firms located across 16 countries.
Each response was validated by Matchi analysts and then individually scored by a panel from Matchi and Liberty to provide a ranked list of the highest scoring responses. A second judging process confirmed a shortlist of 7 firms who were invited to present their solutions directly to the team at Liberty who in turn selected Verbal Access and Aimbrain as the outright winners.
