Fintech Report 2H2022
M&A relating to financial management, payments, banking, lending, crypto, defi, digital assets, trading and investing, broadly categorised as Fintech, has maintained its record levels of activity and high valuations during these uncertain times.

- Trends and analysis of deal activity

The above graph covers the period between January 2015 and June 2022. Throughout the M&A report, median “trailing 30-month” multiples plotted in the graphs refer to the 30-month period prior to and including the half year.
