A Money20/20 Europe Special Edition
Growth across the European fintech industry is fluctuating, and it is becoming increasingly evident that the record levels of funding and deals seen in 2021 will not happen again any time soon. As revealed by CB Insights, funding rose by a staggering 168% to reach $131.5 billion in 2021 from $49 billion in 2020 after fintech firms the likes of Klarna and Stripe achieving monumental valuations. However, 2022 saw rising interest rates, a cost-ofliving crisis and continued geopolitical instability which led to trillions in valuation being erased from public markets.
Europe’s fintech sector remains at the core of the financial services industry, rather than at the fringes as it was once before. According to McKinsey, in each of the seven largest European economies measured by GDP – France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland and the UK – at least one fintech firm ranks among the top five banking institutions.
This Finextra report, a Special Edition for Money 20/20 Europe, collates interviews with a range of leading players across the financial services and fintech industries operating across Europe and explores topics that will be covered at the event in Amsterdam.
