KPMG: The Pulse Of Fintech 2019
After a record-setting 2018, the first half of 2019 got off to a quiet start for fintech investment globally – mirroring a trend seen in the broader venture capital market. Both the number of global fintech deals and the total global investment in fintech dropped in H1’19, raising $37.9 billion across 962 deals, driven by the lack of mega deals seen in 2018. That said, the fintech market in most areas of the world remained relatively strong and well poised for growth.
In H1 2019, the UK attracted $3.06bn of new funding into the fintech sector. Meanwhile, we've seen global investment drop from $62.8bn in H1 2018 to only $37.9bn mid-way through 2019. #FintechPulse launches today: https://t.co/u1zcCBEC1i pic.twitter.com/7iAwYFPF4q
