The third quarter of 2019 set the quarter record for fintech deals (if you take out Ant Financial’s $14bn round last year) driven by 19 $100M+ rounds. Early-stage (seed/angel and Series A) deals fell to an 11-quarter low and funding hit a 7-quarter low. The US saw deals dip to an 11-quarter low while Asia saw deals spike and nearly surpass the US in Q3’19
