Responding to a growing market opportunity, BlackFin Capital Partners is launching a new venture fund, focusing on FinTech opportunities across Europe.
After successfully launching 2 generations of growth-equity financial services funds (Fund I: €220m raised in 2011 / Fund II: €400m raised in 2016), BlackFin Capital Partners is leveraging its unique expertise in the venture capital segment.
The fund will partner with entrepreneurs at all investment stages, from seed to late-stage rounds. As a sector specialist firm, BlackFin and its team will provide these entrepreneurs with unique support regarding their strategy and growth, commercial access and credibility, but also regulatory guidance to establish best-of-breed companies.
The fund will focus on the FinTech space including all aspects of banking, payments, wealth and asset-management, brokerage, insurance, insurance distribution, financial software and technology, technology related to regulatory requirements, financial media, etc.
After a first wave of FinTech startups mainly focusing on distribution and customer relationship, new ventures are now providing full stack financial services rethinking the whole value chain.
