A public forum for private financial markets

Deloitte and PitchBook have collaborated to produce a distinct methodology and array of data sets in order to answer some of the most pressing questions for venture capital and private equity-backed companies. The Road to Next series focuses on critical issues companies and their backers face, covering liquidity concerns, investor strategies, macroeconomic pressures, important regulations, market dynamics, and more.

In each edition, Deloitte subject-matter specialists discuss the issues dominating industry discussions in the current environment, especially the hurdles that growing companies face as they scale. As new market trends develop, additional themes and data sets will be featured to address potential concerns that private companies may have, whether they are planning to stay private or prepare for new phase of their journey.

Sixth edition: What’s next for the fintech expansion-stage ecosystem?

The dawn of the postpandemic era has been dominated by a rapidly deepening expansion stage, as funding levels and valuations continue to smash records. Fintech organizations have played a pivotal role in advancing the expansion-stage environment. With investors anticipating more liquidity events as the lines between financial services and technology continue to blur, what can we expect as 2021 rolls on?

In the latest edition of our Road to Next series, we dissect what’s behind rising investor enthusiasm for the fintech space. Plus, we’ll break down the key factors driving new bullishness around the cryptocurrency and B2B payment ecosystem, and how fintech organizations vying for category dominance can do so through proactive compliance and innovative cybersecurity offerings.

As fintechs continue to blaze new territory in terms of financial innovation—such as cryptocurrency-focused startups—new compliance policies, processes, and tools will need to be created to effectively manage any subsequent new types of risks.
