Fintech investments during H1’20 put a spotlight on long-term trends, including the growing importance of APIs and open data and the blurring of lines between fintech, big tech and platform providers. They also highlighted the acceleration of digital trends, such as digital payments and digital business models.

Uncertainty is expected to linger through the remainder of the year. Payments will likely continue to be a hot and competitive sector for fintech investment, while regtech could grow on the radar of investors as corporates look to better manage risk. The increasing use of digital financial services models will likely also spur investments in ancillary areas, such as fraud prevention, digital identity management and cybersecurity.
