Claudio Alvarez, Partner at GP Bullhound, commented: “Several key trends continued to emerge in Q3 2022. India has solidified itself as a leading fintech hub, with over 4k fintech companies and more than 20 fintech unicorns. Further innovation and adoption in the space are expected across the country. Crypto wallets are bridging the gap between consumers and blockchain, with the opportunity for a market-leading wallet wide open. Lastly, behavioural authentication continues its rise, with growing numbers of users recognising its potential against online banking fraud. On the dealmaking side, fintech activity remained muted due to continued macroeconomic uncertainty, but category leaders like Klarna and wefox continued to raise capital, despite the difficult fundraising environment.”
