Crypto, Blockchain, AI and Regtech are driving the future of Fintech M&A

While transaction volumes declined, deal values reached their highest total sum on record during the second half of 2017, with a total of $29.35 billion in disclosed value. Almost half of this total was achieved by the massive Worldpayacquisition of Vantiv for $10.4 billion. Most of the other growth in deal values was delivered by a total of 21 transactions disclosed above $100 million, more than a doubling from previous half year periods.

Jonathan Simnett, director, Hampleton Partners, says: “The big financial players have woken-up to the profound changes taking place in their markets. This means that they are offering record-level deals to a new generation of fintech firms developing the products and services they need to accelerate their response to the disruptive forces of new entrants, increasingly complex regulations; higher customer service expectations and the arrival of completely new virtual currencies and financial platforms.”

Simnett adds: “2017 was also a booming year for private equity investment into the fintech sector. Lured by strong revenue growth and double-digit profits, two of the top three deals during the second half of 2017 involved a private equity buyer with just five buyout funds spending $10.9 billion on assets during 2H 2017.”

Some key points from the Hampleton Fintech M&A Market Report

  • A wave of mega transactions drove values to reach their highest ever total for fintech of nearly $30bn
  • Three companies tied as the top acquirers: Broadridge, Accenture and Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) with three deals each
  • Regtech – risk, monitoring, surveillance tech – is in demand, replacing manual risk and compliance techniques with breakthrough technology
  • The money transfer and remittance industry faces a M&A-driven shakeup, as evidenced by MoneyGram’s partnership with crypto group Ripple
  • French banks are leading the charge for fintech assets: Crédit Mutuel Arkéa picked up French startup, Leetchi, which operates a payments processor known as Mangopay; BNP Paribas bought into the robo-advisory sector when it acquired a majority stake in Belgian specialist Gambit Financial Solutions for an undisclosed sum, just months after its headline $213 million acquisition of French digital bank Compte-Nickel.

As for the coming year, Hampleton expects more digital disruption in fintech, led by investment in chatbots, machine learning and AI, with blockchain technology gaining momentum with aggressive bidding from financial information buyers and growing interest from large banks and private equity bidders will continue to drive up valuations and the potential for mega-deals.
