The FinTech industry is a high-value market, driving high-stake IPOs, Mergers, and Acquisitions. Tech is accelerating transformation, and keeping up with these developments requires a solid M&A strategy.
1 out of 10 M&A transactions fail, due to cold feet, cancelation by investors, synergies & value creation between the companies, the regulatory factors, and political trends.
In the FinTech and Payment industry, finding the synergies between companies and considering the impact over ever-changing regulations, is very complex and therefore enlarging the obstacles, which are in general already a potential dealbreaker. Market industry knowledge, tech-stack assessments, and specific regulatory knowledge are absolutely necessary for bringing the deal to a close. For an optimized result, it is essential to provide the right assessment transparent, quickly, and efficiently.
A team of combined real industry experts on FinTech and M&A is of great importance, but also very unique nowadays. PaymentsGenes is able to offer such a team with our partnership with StepStone CF+, an M&A boutique, which matches the personal approach of PaymentGenes towards their clients.
Together we provide companies a thorough financial overview, the market position overview and a technical overview in a fast and efficient way to provide companies the guidance they need in such a process.

As many payments companies still struggle to deal with large quantities of data, otherwise described as Big Data, there have been some interesting developments in the ecosystem that will dramatically shift the landscape of payments.
We are beyond excited to finally inform you about our strategic joint venture, service expansion, and new team members. We’ve focused on understanding the payment community's demands, currently, in 5 years from now and even later. As a result, we aligned industry demands with our long-established goals and as of today, we can publicly share our service Extension.
It wasn’t so long ago that CEO’s and large banks were convinced that bank locations would always be necessary to service their customers. However the last ten years we have seen an emergence of Digital Banks, that have never and will probably never own a physical location, but still manage to grow their user base and add additional services including insurance, mortgages and loans.
