2018年上半年金融科技行业并购总额达400亿美元

2018年上半年,金融科技行业共进行了140多项并购交易,总价值接近400亿美元(合304.8亿英镑),比去年同期增长26%以上。

Hampleton Partners编制的Fintech M&A市场报告称,交易价值的激增可归因于消费者和企业对数字银行、支付和金融数据服务的接受,Blackstone在本月初以170亿美元收购汤森路透就是其中的一个例子。

Hampleton Partners的管理合伙人Jo Goodson表示:

“Fintech并购活动在最初创新者之间的一些随机交易激增之后开始逐渐变得成熟。现在,企业和金融买家都在追逐更大、更有针对性的投资,这有助于简化后台运营,改善数字客户体验并降低成本。”

今年上半年,金融科技产业出现了不少标志性的并购案例。比如PayPal以22亿美元现金收购总部位于斯德哥尔摩的支付服务提供商iZettle,以及通过法国支付服务业务Worldline斥资27.5亿美元收购瑞士股票市场运营商SIX Group的支付部门等等。

Goodson表示,她预计会2018年年底前到2018年,会有更多区块链解决方案和保险科技相关的并购案例出现。展望未来,《欧洲修订支付服务指令》(PSD2)的实施可能会成为交易领域的主要改变者,因为它鼓励泛欧竞争和参与。

The fintech sector carried over 140 M&A transactions in the first half of 2018, at a total value of nearly $40bn (£30.48bn) – an increase of more than 26 per cent on the same period last year.

The Fintech M&A market report, compiled by Hampleton Partners, says the surge in transaction values can be attributed to an embrace of digital banking, payments and financial data services from consumers and enterprises, as exemplified by Blackstone’s acquisition of Thomson Reuters for $17bn, which was completed at the beginning of this month.

Hampleton Partners managing partner Jo Goodson said: “Fintech M&A activity is coming of age after the initial surge in somewhat random deal-making amongst the very early innovators. Now, corporate and financial buyers alike are chasing larger and more targeted investments which can help streamline back-office operations, improve the digital customer experience and cut costs.”

Hallmark deals signed in the first half of this year include Paypal’s $2.2bn all-cash acquisition of Stockholm-based payments provider iZettle, as well as the purchase of the payments unit of Swiss stock market operator SIX Group by French payment services business Worldline, for $2.75 bn.

Goodson said she expected to see a number of blockchain solutions entering the market for the remainder of 2018 and going into 2019, along with a major wave of deals from insurtech. “Going forward, the implementation of Europe's Revised Payment Service Directive, or PSD2, is likely to be a major game changer for the deal landscape, as it encourages pan-European competition and participation,” she added.
