Global FinTech financing hit a new record in 2017. We saw the biggest FinTech funding jump in Europe – the growth over 120%, yet US early stage FinTech deals fell as investors made more concentrated bets. Early-stage FinTech deal share dropped to a 5-year low in 2017 according to CBInsights latest report. There’s also been a sharp increase in later stage FinTech funding by corporates backing nearly half of the deals. Is this enough evidence to say that investors are pulling away from early stage FinTech Investing? Why have we seen the rise in corporate scale-up programs?
Where is FinTech funding heading in 2018?
Join us for a discussion with expert panel of VCs and investors.
We gathered together two startups from the Startupbootcamp FinTech & CyberSecurity 2018 program (Westgate and Gyomo) and two experts from our partners (Comsec and Rabobank) to discuss how startups and corporates can collaborate in the Cybersecurity space.
2017/2018 will require the Financial sector to devote resources to regulatory change including MIFID II, PRIIPS and GDPR, as well as to the challenges posed by the UK’s decision to leave the European Union.
FinTech companies offering RegTech solutions will find themselves in huge demand during 2017 and beyond. RegTech is already helping banks to improve compliance and cut costs. More than a third of financial firms continue to spend at least a day in a week to track and analyse regulatory change. It's time consuming, costly, and risks are inevitable. These are just some of the reasons why RegTech is getting so much attention and recognition in financial services industry around the world.
On this webinar we will discuss why the rise of RegTech in banking is the next big thing, what are the challenges of implementation and what RegTech solutions are out there already. Most importantly - are financial institutions and banks considering them already?
As the fintech industry continues to mature, new segments are taking the lead when it comes to growth. With leading FinTech companies commercialising their services at pace, both independently and in collaboration with incumbents, the change is becoming real. While a few years ago FinTech companies were seen as a threat to incumbents, we are now seeing more focus on collaboration. Innovation in AI, big data and blockchain are opening up new avenues of growth and focus on specific customer pain points.

FinTech doesn’t just sit in London or New York or Singapore. It sit inside every industry and every country – it is the rails and the platforms for which money is moved and spent and saved and loaned. FinTech is not the preserve of old, white men (the stale, male and pale crowd as some call it) but It improves the lives of women in the third world, allows a teenager to check their balance before a trip to the mall and makes it easier for fund managers to process reporting.
Financial services, as an industry, plays a part in almost every major life decision from buying a home, to starting a business to retirement. FinTech aims to make the part banks and financial services play easier and more efficient. For FinTech to have the most affective impact, from global to the local, it has to create a place where a wide variety of experiences and voices are welcomed to shape the future of our world.
