The efficiency of the Fintech market is still an unverified issue. We aim to investigate the Fintech market efficiency for four S&P Kensho Fintech indices using the multifractal detrended fluctuation analysis (MF-DFA) method. All indices except one are found to be inefficient based on the joint hypothesis tests. We also find combinations of autocorrelation and/or extreme values as the main causes of the inefficiencies.
