More about the Financial Times and the FT Ranking

Methodology

The FT Americas’ Fastest Growing Companies 2020 is a list of the top 500 companies in The Americas that have achieved the highest growth in revenues between 2015 and 2018. The FT list was compiled with Statista, a research company, and ranks entrants from across the Americas by compound annual growth rate (CAGR) in revenue. The ranking is not a reflection of the size of each country’s economy, but rather a function of the dynamism of a given market and, importantly, the willingness of its companies to be candid with their results. The ranking was created through a complex procedure. Although the search was very extensive, the ranking does not claim to be complete, as some companies did not want to make their figures public and did not participate for other reasons.

To be included on the list of the Americas’ fastest-growing companies, a company had to have revenue of at least $100,000 generated in 2015 and revenue of at least $1.5m generated in 2018 (or currency value equivalent according to the average of the actual fiscal year). Additionally, the revenue growth between 2015 and 2018 had to be primarily organic (ie “internally” stimulated) for a company to qualify. A company also had to be independent (the company is not a subsidiary or branch office of any kind) and headquartered in one of 20 American countries. The minimum CAGR required to be included in the ranking this year was 18.2 percent. For more information, visit https://www.ft.com/americas-fastest-growing-companies-2020
