Live Event: M&A, IPOs and Competition in the Maturing Fintech Industry



The FinTech industry has rapidly matured in recent years. Once a collection of aspirational early stage founders catering to tech early adopters, FinTech companies are increasingly offering highly respected, professional grade solutions to mainstream consumers and businesses.

Challenger banks, online lenders, payments companies and API connectivity layers once competed for fringe customers in a handful of urban centers. Now, they’re pursuing global rollouts, pushing $10 billion valuations and piquing the interest of incumbent acquirers from FIS to Fiserv to Visa.

How far will private funding take FinTech? Will a wave of IPOs follow? Will M&A entice leading startups before their valuations make takeovers uneconomical? What will happen when local FinTech successes clash at the global level?

Join us as we discuss the answers to these questions and more!
