27 July 2023 - GP Bullhound publishes qualitative insights into broader Fintech trends and public and private valuations across the transaction spectrum, and interviews with today’s leaders transforming the sector.

Claudio Alvarez, Partner at GP Bullhound, commented: “Several trends emerged across the fintech space in Q2: the sector is catalysing the evolution of ESG, with multiple applications at the intersection of both, including data and analytics, impact reporting, and sustainable investment solutions; the digital payment revolution continues, with more customers than ever owning three or more digital wallets, and, lastly, we are seeing increasing potential for institutions to revisit crypto launches on the back of a solid crypto start this year.”

Fintech is catalysing the evolution of an ESG-centric world

  • The increasing importance of ESG has had a material impact on the Fintech sector
  • Combining core ESG principles with financial technology has revolutionised the way businesses and investors approach sustainable and responsible practices
  • The integration of ESG into Fintech has multiple applications, including ESG data and analytics, sustainable investment solutions, impact measurement and reporting, and ESG risk management

Embracing the continued digital payment revolution

  • The global digital payments market is set to grow at 18% compound annual growth from 2022-2030
  • The surge of Fintech has paved the way for the rise of digital wallets, a trend that is reshaping consumer habits. Recent statistics indicate that customers own three or more digital wallets, from 18% in 2021 to 30% in 2022
  • In the US alone households collectively pay c.15 billion bills each year. To streamline this process, mobile banking solutions equipped with push notifications and real-time payment confirmation are in high demand

Institutionals could be positioning for a crypto comeback

  • The cryptocurrency market is currently experiencing a strong momentum following a solid start in 2023 thanks to changing global macroeconomic conditions and declining inflation data
  • On the back of this positive sentiment, some institutions are revisiting the opportunity to get exposure to this asset class via Exchange Traded Funds
  • Many cryptocurrency executives think that BlackRock’s proposed ETF could be the first spot bitcoin vehicle to be accepted by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in the US
