Key Highlights:

  • Private company fundraising activity in the Payments space sharply declined in Q3 2022 alongside the rest of the FinTech sector. From Q2 2022, financing volume dropped 59% to $1.8 billion and deal count decreased by 24% to 79 capital raises.
  • There were only three $100 million+ financing rounds in Q3 2022, compared with 14 in Q2 2022.
  • The US has been the most active country so far this year, with 101 financing deals, followed by the UK (38), India (21), Singapore (13) and Nigeria (10) – the last three represent major emerging FinTech markets, particularly for innovation around Payments.
  • At the end of the third quarter, the majority of M&A deals announced in 2022 were relatively small, with 58% of transactions with announced dollar amounts valued at $100 million or less. Only four deals exceeded have $1 billion in value thus far, depressing the total announced M&A dollar volume relative to prior years.
