Q3 2021 fintech investment is 90% higher than all 2020 funding, totaling $34.4 billion globally.

BCG Introduces FinTech Control Tower to Help Decision Makers Supercharge FinTech Growth Strategies and Releases Q3 State of FinTech Report.

Q3 2021 fintech investment is 90% higher than all 2020 funding, totaling $34.4 billion globally.

Megadeals, or funding rounds equal to or over $100 million, are driving the dramatic growth in investment seen in 2021; 101 megadeals were made in Q3 2021 alone, totaling $23 billion—a 250% increase over the same quarter in 2020.

Companies That Are Beyond Great Grow Faster and Create More Value

Boston Consulting Group (BCG) today announced FinTech Control Tower, a first-of-its-kind fintech insights platform to help companies, including banks, insurance companies, and private equity and venture capital firms, see the fintech industry—an industry focused on technology to enable financial services—as it is today and predict how it will look tomorrow. The goal of FinTech Control Tower is to help companies define, refine, or supercharge their business strategies such as merger and acquisition strategies or collaboration across industries, and meet customer demands for better digital service offerings.

Investment Trends Drive Need for the Right Data

The fintech investment surge continues to drive competition and the need for companies to take informed and swift action. Funding trends are driven by two segments—payments and accounts products—with North America leading global investments, according to BCG’s “State of FinTech” Q3 report:

  • Payments and accounts, which each received more than $7.5 billion in investments, accounted for 45% of all investments in Q3.
  • To date, 2021 investments have reached $93 billion. The total amount of funding in Q3 2021 is the highest in a quarter across 2021.
  • Regionally, the Americas continue to lead in total funding ($56 billion in funding in the first three quarters of 2021).
  • The Americas and EMEA have seen the largest growth in total investments in 2021 compared with the same period in 2020, seeing 163% and 155% growth respectively.
