Fintech Fundraising and M&A During a Pandemic

Yesterday we kicked off LendIt Fintech Digital with a discussion between Peter Renton, co-founder of LendIt Fintech and Steve McLaughlin, CEO and founder of FT Partners; FT Partners is the leading investment bank in fintech globally; McLaughlin shared that there has been positive movement in recent weeks though valuations remain flat; the companies that are able to raise money are not being as realistic on valuations; the current environment also opens up a once in a lifetime for banks to make moves; two months ago VCs were of the mindset that they would never fund a company without a meeting in person; today they are doing all of their deals virtually; in our recap we share more highlights from the discussion.
