Highlights From The Q3 Fintech Report

  1. Q3’19 fintech funding topped $8.9B, a quarterly record when adjusting for Ant Financials' $14B investment in Q2’18: Through Q3’19, fintech has raised $24.6B, already surpassing 2017’s annual total.
  2. Southeast Asia fintech topped new annual highs: Southeast Asia set a new annual record with $701M raised across 87 deals through Q3’19.
  3. India and China continued to do battle over the title of Asia’s top fintech hub in Q3’19: China saw deals surge to 55 in the quarter, reclaiming the lead from India, which saw 33 deals.
  4. There are 56 VC-backed fintech unicorns worth a combined $210.6B: Q3’19 saw 7 new fintech unicorn births.

Globally, fintech deals rebounded slightly in Q3’19, but will likely fall short of 2018’s record. This short-fall is due in part to the continued pull back in early-stage investing. Early -stage (seed/angel and Series A) deals fell to an eleven-quarter low and funding hit a seven-quarter low.
