2Q 2017PitchBook Fintech Analyst Note: Insurance
In spite of premiums accounting for 7% of US GDP, the operational expertise required to launch a platform in the insurance space remains far higher than that required for other applied technology in other industries. The insurance industry in general has bought itself time with huge economies of scale and massive balance sheets due to the favorable quirks of their accounting treatment and business models. Lately, insurers have begun to use their balance sheets to fund corporate venture arms to lead the charge on funding potential disrupters.

Canada PE & VC Breakdown: Part I

So far this year, completed exits involving VC-backed companies have already bested last year's total exit value by some 70%, while the number of transactions is pacing to also surpass 2016. The Canadian government has also reaffirmed its backing of the VC industry with their 2017 budget, which proposes some C$400 million for investment through the Venture Capital Catalyst Initiative. PE has had a bit of a slow go to start the year in terms of deal count, though aggregate transaction values have grown and 2017 should see overall deal value come in relatively flat against the past few years. The future is looking bright for Canada.

Analyst Note: How US PE firms can maintain investing during the next recession

For those private equity investors and limited partners that believe an economic downturn may come sooner rather than later, we analyze deal flow, debt/EBITDA ratios, and capital deployment during the last recession as well as the key differences between then and now. Further, we propose a three-point plan with expectations for lower valuations and longer hold times, increased nonbank lending, and a higher number of sub-$100 million deals.

Fintech Analyst Note: Asset Management

Here's the latest entry in PitchBook's continuing research of the fintech space, with this analyst note providing an update on the most important trends within asset management. As passive investing continues to rake in billions and traditional players either develop their own low-cost digital advisory platforms or engage in M&A, it's clear that the trend toward lower-cost, more easily accessible pathways to investment is not slowing down anytime soon.
