Quarterly (Q3) Fintech Market Report

DATE: October 2023

Our Q3-23 Fintech report gives an overview of the latest industry developments.


In the public markets, all Fintech verticals were affected by a wider market downturn, with an average Q-o-Q performance of -9%. The payments (-22%) vertical experienced a particularly strong decline during this period. b2b Fintech stocks remain more resilient vs their b2c peers.


Despite that, in terms of financing, both the total number of transactions and total capital deployed in private fintech fundraising increased slightly in Q3-23, amounting to 216 transactions and $6.8bn raised (vs 215 transactions and $6.7bn in Q2-23).

M&A also had a booming quarter, with the highlight being GTCR’s record $10.2bn acquisition of a majority stake in Worldpay, illustrating a trend towards core business strategy focus and operational streamlining in the payments space. Given the increasing private equity activity, our report also includes recent  notable private equity buyouts and exits.
