The London Stock Exchange’s ‘Fintech Comes of Age’ report explored their research on the growth and maturity of UK fintech.

“London has become a global hub for fintech. It is the ideal listing destination for fast-growing companies to increase visibility with customers and suppliers and where long-term institutional investors are seeing growth opportunities in the fintech sector. Investors appreciate the strong governance standards and robust legal and regulatory environment. Together, these factors contribute to the strong community and depth of experience for the increasing numbers of fintech firms that are present here.”

Augmentum CEO Tim Levene said “The maturing UK fintech ecosystem has remained attractive to investors and the average deal size has grown significantly over the last year. The UK has reinforced its position as a leading hub of global finance and technology, accounting for half of Europe’s top fintech VC deals.”
