毕马威:AI、保险科技、监管科技与区块链投资热度不减

毕马威2017年第三季度《金融科技境况报告》(Pulse of Fintech)显示,人工智能、保险科技、监管科技及区块链仍然保持投资热点地位。

毕马威美国分公司数字及金融技术咨询实践领头人Anthony Rjeily表示:

"我们看到美国金融科技市场一片乐观:大数据、人工智能、物联网等处于发展初期的技术日益成熟、渐被采纳,保险科技、机器人顾问、区块链与物联网等技术发展迅猛。展望未来,金融科技业将飞速演进,表现包括金融科技日趋成熟、大型技术企业投身相关服务。"

报告指出,区块链技术发展步伐迅猛,已从试验转入开发经久耐用原型阶段。报告还称不少企业可能正在研发区块链生产系统。

报告作者还强调,金融机构正积极参加区块链组织与联盟。在此方面,报告称R3联盟仍为此类联盟中规模最大的团体。报告还特别提及了B3i,B3i是保险业最大的区块链组织,发展迅速,每季度都有新成员加入。

报告显示,今年第三季度末,全球投入区块链企业的风险投资达1.71亿美元。然而这一统计未将R3募得的1.07亿美元记录在内,原因在于此资金仅为R3前两层融资募资所得,第三层及最终融资拟于今年晚些时候进行。

此外,报告还提及了另一种募资方式ICO,近期投资人士对ICO的兴趣呈爆炸式增长。

报告写道:"2017年前期的四个月内,ICO融资呈指数型增长,4月为1.03亿美元,7月已增长至5.74美元。ICO的迅速增长,不断引起了监管方的注意。"此言印证了锦旗多国针对ICO做出的监管举措,如中国禁止了ICO相关活动。

Artificial Intelligence (AI), insurtech, regtech, and blockchain are poised to remain hot areas of investment, according to KPMG's Q3 '17 Pulse of Fintech report.

"We see a lot of optimism in the U.S. Fintech market - from the maturation and adoption of early stage technologies like Big Data, Artificial Intelligence and IoT to the rapid acceleration of others, such as Insurtech, Robo-advisory, Blockchain and Regtech," said Anthony Rjeily, leader for Financial Services' Digital and Fintech practice in the U.S. "Looking ahead, the fintech sector is expected to evolve rapidly, including both mature fintechs and large technology players diversifying into adjacent services."

The report noted that blockchain development is evolving at a rapid pace - moving from the experimental to developing robust prototypes. It also said that a number of companies could be in the process of developing production blockchain systems.

The authors also highlighted that financial institutions are actively participating in blockchain syndicates and consortia. To that end, the report said that R3 blockchain consortium continues to be the largest of its kind and gave a special call-out to B3i - the insurance industry's largest blockchain syndicate -which is growing rapidly and adding participants every quarter.

This year, the global venture investment in blockchain companies up to the end of third quarter stands at $171 million, according to the report. This figure, however, excludes the $107 million raised by R3 as this amount only makes up the first two tranches of the funding round. The third and final tranche is expected later this year.

Furthermore, the report also noted the recent explosion of interest in Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) as an alternative means of raising funding.

"Funding raised through ICOs rose exponentially over a 4-month period earlier in 2017 - from $103 million in April to $574 million in July. With the rapid rise of ICOs, however, has come an increasing focus from regulators," it said, and underscored the recent regulatory efforts in this space by a number of countries, including China's ban on all ICO-related activities.
