That is fintech’s holy grail. E-commerce and online financial services experienced exponential growth during the COVID-19 pandemic. The significance of digital offerings, and the RegTech tools to safeguard institutions and customers, has never been more apparent. Europe’s unicorns are at full gallop towards the digital future. Overview 3 reasons why concerns around scarcity of support for fintechs amidst COVID-19 economic uncertainty were unwarranted: E-commerce and online financial services experienced exponential growth. Fintechs scaled up materially to match consumer demand Established banks pivoted to digital offerings in response to branch suspensions and closures Financial sponsors supercharged innovators to ride the wave of disruption CURRENT MARKET WE ARE SEEING Banks adopt multi-channel strategies towards digital transformation: Direct investments (e.g., Barclays’ participation in fundraisings for Amount, First Boulevard, TomoCredit and Hubx in H1 2021) Investments in dedicated fintech funds (e.g., BBVA’s US$150 million investment commitment to Propel) Nurturing ‘home grown’ innovation (e.g., HSBC’s launch of its multi-currency digital wallet and SME digital lender, Kinetic) Venture arm investments (e.g., Goldman Sachs Growth Equity’s investments in ComplyAdvantage, BackMarket Amount and Starling Bank in H1 2021) Partnerships with fintechs (e.g., Deutsche Bank’s JVs with Fiserv (payments acceptance), Silverflow (cloudbased card-acquiring services) and Treasury Intelligence Solutions (multi-bank services) in H1 2021) Participation in innovation consortia (e.g., BoI’s, AIB’s, Permanent TSB’s and KBC’s establishment of Syntech Payments) Financial sponsors piling into funding rounds in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic—payments, Open Banking, WealthTech, data analytics, InsurTech, e-trading and RegTech rake in the growth capital Fintechs come of age: Mega funding rounds (e.g., Wefox’s US$650 million Series C round, Klarna’s US$639 million Series H round and Mollie’s €665 million Series C round) Mergers between market leaders (e.g., Raisin & Deposit Solutions) Inorganic growth (e.g. Tink’s acquisition of FinTecSystems, and subsequent acquisition by Visa) Partnerships (e.g., Nordic API Gateway’s and Bankdata’s Open Banking partnership) Attainment of the Holy Grail (e.g., Alkami’s Nasdaq IPO and Dispersion’s AQSE IPO) Fintechs tackle social concerns, particularly reaching unbanked communities (e.g., Airtel Africa Mobile Money’s equity funding from QIA, Mastercard and The Rise Fund), servicing under-banked communities (e.g., Greenwood (ethnic minorities), Rewire (migrants) and First Boulevard (ethnic minorities)) and supporting LGBT initiatives (e.g., bunq’s launch of Mastercard ‘True Name’ credit cards) KEY DRIVERS Development stage (e.g., Gro, Butter and Bankly, amongst others, raised Seed funding in H1 2021) Early-stage (e.g., Volt, Finleap Connect and Upflow, amongst others, raised Series A funding in H1 2021) Mid-stage (e.g., Element Insurance, Divido and Treasury Prime, amongst others, raised Series B funding in H1 2021) Late-stage (e.g., Smart, Deserve and Viva Wallet, amongst others, raised Series D funding in H1 2021) High investor appetite for disruptors, including banks, financial sponsors, multinational financial services corporations, family offices, successful entrepreneurs and NGOs Material uptick in support for digital assets, with particular focus on: Digital asset custody (e.g., Deutsche Börse’s acquisition of majority stake in Crypto Finance) Crypto trading (e.g., Talos Trading, Bitpanda, Anchorage and Blockchain.com all successfully raised funds in H1 2021) Digital asset analytics (e.g., Kaiko’s US$24 million Series A funding round, led by Anthemis and Underscore VC) Crypto security (e.g., PayPal’s acquisition of Curv) Legislatures and regulators back digitalisation: Regulatory sandboxes—the Bank of Greece, Spain’s Secretariat General for the Treasury & International Financing and the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority all launched new sandboxes in H1 2021 Government funding (e.g., UK’s new £375 million Future Fund, Germany’s €10 billion Future Fund and Ireland’s Strategic Investment Fund) ‘Grey cell’ resources (e.g., Ireland’s establishment of its new Department of Finance Fintech Group under the 2021 Finance Action Plan) TRENDS TO WATCH RegTech which is scalable and compatible with legacy IT systems Banks yielding to customer demand for crypto trading and storage capability (e.g., Standard Chartered’s and BNY Mellon’s newly established crypto divisions) Continued competition between national governments and regulators to attract top innovators and talent Crumbling castles—over-ambitious fundraisings (e.g., Greensill’s fall from grace), geographic expansion (e.g., Revolut’s exit from Canada) and product offerings (e.g., NatWest’s closure of Esme Loans) Our M&A forecast Fintech—Publicly reported deals & situationsSupercharged bank and financial sponsor interest in funding rounds for fintechs which can demonstrate continued consumer appetite, scalability, nimbleness to respond to changing market conditions and sustainable management motivation. De-SPAC opportunities for first movers who can withstand public scrutiny. Increasing pressure on fintechs to generate profits and reduce reliance on private capital backing. Fintech—Publicly reported deals & situations Banks invest heavily in digitalisation strategies Banks will still have the appetite for fintech M&A in 2021, but the economic uncertainty created by the COVID-19 pandemic will make them more cautious in their deal-making.
