+5bps Fintech has marginally outperformed S&P500 over the last quarter, suggesting (relative) rout may be over.

-57% Global Fintech down more than twice as much as Nasdaq year-on-year, owing to massive contraction is multiples (EV/Revenue) from 19.84 in Sep’21 to 7.45 Sep’22.

$9.3Bn Private Fintech funding in Q3’22 – in line with pre-Covid funding levels.

-74% SuperApps worst-performing subsegment of Fintech YoY, led by steep drops in Block Inc (down 77%), MoneyLion Inc (down 87%) and Paypal Holdings Inc (down 67%).

17x more private funding into FinTech over 10 years, comparing Q3’12 to Q3’22.

$304Bn Private Fintech funding over 10 years. $129B invested since Q1 2021 alone. Data seems to suggest that the macroeconomic environment is causing a reversion to the trend line, after a very frothy 15-month period (Q1’21 to Q1’22), rather than a total collapse in private funding.

$185Bn Market Cap of Financial management companies, the biggest subsegment in FinTech, and the best 3-month price performance (+13.62%). We are bullish on this subsegment because we see specialist vertical SaaS platforms as big global opportunities in themselves, but also as excellent distribution platforms for embedded finance.

$107Bn Embedded payments’ market cap,the largest embedded finance subsegment, which is reflective of its early role in the embedded finance shift.
