金融科技独角兽背后的投资者,你了解多少?

目前,全球共有超过25家金融科技独角兽,全球范围内名声较响的有Coinbase(市值15.7亿美元)、TransferWise(市值16亿美元)及Robinhood(市值56亿美元)。

它们背后的投资者又是谁?投资金融科技独角兽数量最多的是谁?

若这些投资方选择退出,那么以这些独角兽的巨额私募估值,收益最高的是谁?CB Insights对此进行了深入调查。

金融科技独角兽顶级风投

排名第一的投资方是以金融科技为重心的顶尖风投机构Ribbit Capital,其投资的企业中有10家估值超过10亿美元。

Ribbit共投资了41家金融科技公司,意味着其中有24%是所谓的"独角兽"。最新投资的企业包括印度保险产品比较平台PolicyBazaar,以及英国数字银行Revolut。

第二名是QED Investors,投资有6家独角兽企业。Andreessen Horowitz、SV Angel、DST Global以及Institutional Venture Partners并列第三,均投资了5家独角兽企业。

四家企业(Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers、Google Ventures、Thrive Capital和General Catalyst)并列第四,分别投资了3家金融科技独角兽。

虽然这些风投机构投资了这些发展前景光明的公司,但这不代表它们就一定能获得丰厚回报,因为该排名并未考虑投资轮次的问题。比如,排名第三的DST就是在发展阶段早早进行了投资。

顶尖金融科技早期投资者

对独角兽企业投资越早,机构未来获得的收益可能也越大。以下是进行种子轮及A轮投资的机构。

并列第一的是Index Ventures和SV Angel,早期投资的公司中各有4家成长为独角兽。

Index Ventures起初是对转账支付公司TransferWise、零佣金炒股软件Robinhood、数字银行Revolut以及网络贷款平台Funding Circle进行的种子轮或A轮投资。

据报道,Funding Circle(获Index投资的A轮融资)下半年计划上市。该计划也许会让Index对所投公司的股权退出热潮延续,比如此前Index投资的欧洲两大金融科技公司iZettle(被PayPal以22亿美元收购)、Adyen(上月刚上市,IPO价格84亿美元)均取得了不错的成绩。

近日,QED Investors投资的GreenSky以42亿美元的价格上市,而QED此前也曾对Nubank(巴西数字银行)、Credit Karma(信用管理机构)、SoFi(借贷平台)和AvidXchange(支付公司)进行过早期投资。

Today, there are over 25 fintech unicorns across four different continents. Top names like Coinbase ($1.57B valuation), TransferWise ($1.6B), and Robinhood ($5.6B) have achieved global recognition.

But what about the investors behind them?

Using CB Insights data, we dug into which investors have backed the most billion-dollar fintech startups — and which are poised to gain the most if their portfolio companies manage exits on par with their huge private market valuations.

TOP OVERALL FINTECH UNICORN HUNTERS

Fintech-focused VC firm Ribbit Capital takes the overall top spot as the most active investor in fintech unicorns, with 10 companies in its portfolio attaining at least $1B valuations.

In total, Ribbit has invested in 41 fintech startups — meaning 24% of its fintech portfolio has reached unicorn status. Most recently, these include India-based financial comparison startup PolicyBazaar and UK-based digital challenger bank Revolut.

In second place is QED Investors with 6 fintech unicorns. Tied for third place are Andreessen Horowitz, SV Angel, DST Global, and Institutional Venture Partners, all of which hold stakes in 5 unicorns.

Four investors currently count 3 fintech unicorns in their portfolio: Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Google Ventures, Thrive Capital, and General Catalyst.

While these top investors have been able to find and invest in promising companies, that does not ensure massive returns, as this ranking does not take into account the round at which the investor entered. DST, for example, has primarily first invested at the growth stage.

TOP EARLY-STAGE FINTECH INVESTORS

Investors that back these unicorn startups in early-stage funding rounds stand to gain more from potential future exits. Here are the firms that invested at seed and Series A rounds in fintechs that went on to gain $1B+ valuations.

Index Ventures and SV Angel share the top spot, each with 4 early-stage fintech investments that have grown into unicorns.

Index Ventures first invested in seed or Series A rounds for money transfer firm TransferWise, commission-free mobile brokerage Robinhood, challenger bank Revolut, and SME lender Funding Circle.

Funding Circle (whose Series A was led by Index) is reportedly planning an IPO for later this year. This exit could continue the trend of strong exits by Index portfolio companies: the firm invested in Europe’s two largest VC-backed fintech exits ever, backing iZettle (acquired by PayPal for $2.2B) and Adyen (which went public in a $8.4B IPO just last month).

QED Investors, which recently saw the $4.2B IPO of portfolio company GreenSky, counts early investments in Brazilian digital bank Nubank and credit monitoring service Credit Karma, as well as investments in alternative lender SoFi and payments automation company AvidXchange.
