According to KPMG’s latest The Pulse of Fintech report, 2018 is set to be another record-breaking year for Fintech investment. After only two quarters, it’s already reached $57.9 billion, less than $5 billion shy of 2015’s highs of $62.5 billion.
Europe and Asia are particularly hot Fintech areas at the moment. With $26 billion and $16.8 billion respectively, these regions attracted almost three-quarters of total global investments, while VC funding specifically got a significant boost during Q2 2018.
The report also pointed out that regulatory issues continue to be a hot topic within the industry, especially in Europe, where both the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Payment Services Directive 2 (PSD2) have been implemented in 2018.
