Fintech Report 2H2019
The fintech industry has already broken the records set in 2018, with 1H 2019 witnessing the three largest fintech M&A transactions on record. These mammoth transactions are the sign of a revitalised M&A market following a slump in 2H 2018. They are also testament to the readiness of large players - especially in North America - to adopt large-scale fintech solutions, particularly in transaction processing and enterprise financial software. On the fundraising front, Q2 of 2019 funding rounds generated the most value to date - a sign that, in addition to them multiplying in number, fintech fundraises are becoming ever larger.
The report focuses on Fintech subsectors such as Enterprise Financial Software, Fintech IT & Transaction Processing Services, and Consumer Financial Solutions. It also includes:
- Trends and analysis of deal activity
- Deal geography
- Top acquirers
