摘要: 2019 saw fintech reach an inflection point on a global scale, pulling in $34.5B across 1,913 deals. Q4’19 ended the year strong, setting a quarterly funding record when excluding Ant Financial’s record $14B investment in Q2’18. Deals were less resilient and ended the year down, driven in part by a pull back in early-stage (seed/angel and Series A) deals.

 

 

2019 saw fintech reach an inflection point on a global scale, pulling in $34.5B across 1,913 deals. Q4’19 ended the year strong, setting a quarterly funding record when excluding Ant Financial’s record $14B investment in Q2’18. Deals were less resilient and ended the year down, driven in part by a pull back in early-stage (seed/angel and Series A) deals.

REPORT HIGHLIGHTS

Q4’19 saw approximately $9.4B invested across 452 deals. Funding saw a boost from mega-rounds ($100M+) including a $1.7B investment to India-based One97, which was the top deal in Q4’19.

Fintech startups are maturing beyond early stages. As a percentage of deals, Series B+ rounds topped 5-year highs. In 2019 there were 83 mega-rounds, an 81% jump from 2018. This is a positive indicator that more fintech startups are reaching growth stages (Series B+), which becomes more difficult with each subsequent financing.

2019 saw fintech deals and funding spread to emerging and frontier markets. South America, Africa, Australia, and Southeast Asia (SEA) all saw funding top annual highs. 5 of the top ten deals were outside the US and were mega-rounds.

There are 66 VC-backed fintech unicorns worth a combined $243.6B. 2019 saw a record of 24 unicorn births, 8 of which occurred in Q4’19.
