The Pulse of Fintech – Q3 2016

The Pulse of Fintech

Quarterly analysis of global venture capital trends in the fintech sector.

Quarterly analysis of global venture capital trends in the fintech sector.

‘The Pulse of Fintech’ is a quarterly report created by KPMG along with KPMG Enterprise’s Global Network for Innovative Startups and CB Insights (the ‘go to’ name for insights related to venture capital investment). The series analyses the latest global trends in venture capital investment data on the fintech sector.

Given the significant interest in fintech globally, and its ongoing evolution in terms of market drivers, technologies and potential use-cases, KPMG and CB Insights are partnering to bring you the pulse of fintech investment globally. Each quarter, we’ll highlight key fintech deals, issues and challenges around the world, in addition to key trends and insights related to fintech in key regions, including North America, Asia and Europe.

Despite quarterly decreases, both in terms of the number of deals and the total value of VC investment in fintech, the year-to-date view shows a positive trend. Though it is no longer expected to exceed 2015’s peak investment levels, due in large part to the lack of $1 billion+ mega-deals in Q3, the first 3 quarters of 2016 have already exceeded the annual totals for 2014 and earlier.

The Q3 report, launched on 16 November 2016, also examines global trends along with what’s happening in fintech within key regions and will explore answers to a number of questions including:

  • How is fintech continuing to evolve and diversify?
  • Is China replacing the US as the world’s fintech leader?
  • Why are corporate investors so keen to take advantage of fintech – and what are their key challenges?
  • How are next generation payments technologies re-shaping the global landscape?
