Key Highlights:

  • After a boost in private FinTech financing volume in Q1 2023 from Stripe’s multi-billion Series I round, total dollar volume dropped back down to $10.5 billion, the lowest quarterly level since Q2 2020, the first full quarter during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Financing activity continues to be driven by early-stage and smaller sized deals – 65% of all funding rounds in the first half of 2023 were under $10 million, the highest level since 2016.
  • While overall FinTech financing volume declined in Q2 2023, some sub-sectors experienced a period of growth. Total dollar volume raised in the Financial Management Solutions sector rose 81% sequentially to $3.2 billion in Q2, representing the highest level of growth of any FinTech sector during the quarter as many investors set their sights on B2B FinTech companies.
  • FinTech M&A dollar volume increased nearly 2.5x in Q2 2023 totaling $24.2 billion after hitting a nearly three-year low in Q1 2023 ($9.9 billion).
  • 49% of all FinTech M&A transactions in H1 2023 were acquisitions of companies headquartered outside of North America, a level much higher than prior years (46% in full year 2022 and 41% in 2021 and 37% in 2020).
