Fintech investment simmers down in Q2

On the heels of a breakthrough year for fintech investment, VC activity in the sector is simmering down. In Q2 2022, VC investment in fintech companies fell 17.8% from the previous quarter, the largest percentage drop since Q3 2018. Exits have also stalled as IPO activity grinds to a halt, and analysts expect fintech startups will attract the attention of incumbents looking for M&A opportunities.

Our latest Emerging Tech Research update on fintech explores VC trends in the sector and highlights emerging opportunities in DeFi lending and non-dilutive startup financing. The report also includes a comprehensive market map of key players across each fintech subsegment and takes a closer look at companies including Percent, Parafin, OpenNode and Celo.
