Q3 2020 Wealth & Capital Markets Tech Insights

Q3 2020 Wealth & Capital Markets Tech Insights


Key Highlights:

  • Q3 2020 was a moderately active quarter for the Wealth & Capital Markets Tech sector globally, with 87 private company financings and 35 M&A transactions.
  • Despite COVID-19, private company financings were still quite active, boosting Q3 2020 financing volume to nearly $2 billion, which represents the highest quarterly level since Q4 2018.
  • Continuing the trend of high strategic participation in Wealth & Capital Markets Tech fundraising activity, 41% of all financings in 2020 YTD included a strategic or corporate investor.
  • At $19.6 billion, 2020 YTD M&A volume is substantially lower than the past two years, which had some of the largest Wealth & Capital Markets Tech acquisitions ever — London Stock Exchange Group’s $27 billion acquisition of Refinitiv and Charles Schwab’s $26 billion acquisition of TD Ameritrade. However, the full year volume will look much stronger when including S&P Global’s $44 billion merger with IHS Markit, which was announced during Q4. This deal represents the largest FinTech M&A transaction ever.
