Welcome to The Pulse of Fintech

The series leverages quarterly venture capital (VC) data within the fintech industry. Each quarter the report highlights the key trends and issues impacting the fintech market, both globally and in key regions around the world. The report includes insights and analysis from KPMG Enterprise and KPMG Fintech leaders.

Highlights from The Pulse of Fintech Q2 2017 report

  • Total fintech investment in the U.S. rose during Q2’17, assisted by a strong increase in venture capital (VC) funding during the quarter. 

  • VC funding accounted for over $1.5 billion across 104 deals, making it the second-strongest quarter ever for VC investment in fintech

  • Fintech M&A activity continued to be weak during the quarter, potentially a result of the cyclical nature of the M&A market, following on the heels of a strong 2016.
