A very appropriate choice of topic. I will be keenly following your blog, just like many others already are.

I expect the PE world to compete with the hungry System Integrators (SI's) and technology firms for Fintech investments.

All the SI's and specially the mid tier ones, I speak to are actively scouting for suitable IP to invest in, backed up by a considerable war chest. I would not be surprised if many of them sprout their own mini PE divisions.
