JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Feb. 22, 2016 – Already a global leader in financial services technology, FIS™ (NYSE:FIS) also has been named among FORTUNE Magazine’s World’s Most Admired Companies for 2016.
“It’s an incredible honor to be recognized by your peers for the work you do,” said Gary Norcross, president and CEO, FIS. “But this wouldn’t be possible without the incredible work of our employees worldwide. I tell people all the time that we have the greatest people in the business, and recognitions like this prove it. It’s the commitment of our employees, coupled with our strategy of constant innovation that makes us the company we are and allows us to serve clients the way we do.”
FIS rated well on the list for global competitiveness, social responsibility and innovation. That’s in keeping with the company’s direction and strategy. FIS recently acquired SunGard, a leading software and technology services company. The acquisition broadens the company’s solution portfolio, allowing it to expand beyond its traditional retail banking and payments footprint into the institutional and wholesale side of financial institutions, providing deeper value for clients.
Meanwhile, the company’s strategies for innovation and giving back led it to advances like FIS Cardless Cash, the industry’s first mobile ATM solution that allows consumers to withdraw money using just their smartphone, the creation of India’s first Financial Inclusion Lab, which will drive efforts to bring financial access to more people, and the launch of the FinTech Accelerator, an initiative committed to accelerating development and innovation in the global financial technology industry.
The FORTUNE World’s Most Admired Companies list is based on survey results from thousands of executives, directors and analysts at companies worldwide. Respondents rate companies in their own industry on nine factors, which include investment value as well as social responsibility. Each respondent then selects 10 companies he or she admires most.
