What is a financial leaderboard

Leaderboards visualize performance metrics that matter to your financial services team to drive motivation and accountability. They’re so much more than just numbers on a screen. They’re a way to gamify achievement and inspire your team to take action and improve.

From number of referrals, amount of funds managed, to number of accounts set up or claims made, there is enormous flexibility to what metrics you want your leaderboard to score for your financial services team.

Collecting performance data on a spreadsheet makes sense, but it’s unlikely to create real stakes, or motivate meaningful improvement.

What is a financial leaderboard

By connecting your metrics to a leaderboard, you unlock the opportunity for everyone to see how they’re doing at any time. Now members can identify where they’re doing well and where their biggest performance opportunities lie. Top scorers can receive the recognition they deserve and inspire the rest of the team to aim high.
There are all kinds of performance metrics that can be measured on a leaderboard by financial service teams. Indeed, we have seen a lot of success when leaderboards are used in this sector.
Whatever performance data matters to your service, a leaderboard offers a fun way to gamify your team’s targets and motivates them to take action.

In which sectors financial leaderboards can be used

Leaderboards can be easily created to display metrics of importance to your organization, and more specifically, your core team.

We have seen successful use cases of leaderboards across the financial services sectors below, but there will be many more areas where they can be used effectively:


Measure number of claims lodged, accounts set-up and more.



Measure number of tax returns filed, audits completed, number of billable hours and other key metrics.


Measure number of accounts opened, referrals, emails sent, deals won and more.

Investment Banking

Measure value of funds managed, number of clients landed, and more.
