Global Fintech Report Q1 2019

China’s crackdown on online lending has caused a dramatic decline in venture capital-backed funding for financial technology in Asia, which has dropped below $1 billion for the first time in the past five quarters, according to a new global fintech report from CB Insights.

The New York-based big data company found that fintech investment in Asia plummeted from more than $2.6 billion in the fourth quarter of 2018 to $875 million, a 67% decline. During that same time, fintech deals in China slipped from 49 to 29 and fintech funding fell by nearly 90% from the prior quarter to $192 million.

With tighter regulations hamstringing many lenders in China, India appears to be emerging as a top fintech market in Asia. India matched China’s fintech deals this past quarter and surpassed its fintech funding by nearly $100 million.
