Fintech Analyst Note: A Brazilian Boom

4Q 2017

Fintech Analyst Note: A Brazilian Boom

The structure of the incumbent Brazilian banking system makes it uniquely susceptible to disruption by fintech innovation. According to research by Charles Calomiris of Columbia University and Steven Haber of Stanford, Brazilian banks have historically been a tool of populist policies and government largesse rather than an engine to fuel private sector growth and household wealth. The political influence on banks has led to overstaffing and inefficient back-office processes. On top of these inefficiencies, Brazilian megabanks typically offer a poor customer service experience; visitors to retail branches are typically greeted by heavily armed private guards and bulletproof glass. In our latest fintech research note, we analyze how the Brazilian fintech scene is best poised to take advantage of these openings.

3Q 2017

European PE Breakdown

European PE activity continues to mirror much of what we see in the United States, with deal and exit counts continuing to decrease year-over-year. Much like last quarter, the fundraising cycle remains hot. If the current pace holds, 2017 will mark a new record for capital commitments—even outpacing 2007.
