Dry Powder: The Private Equity Podcast

When Investors Eat the World of Fintech

The worlds of fintech and financial services are merging into one.


When Investors Eat the World of Fintech

On the previous episode of Dry Powder, Jeff Tijssen, an expert partner and leader of Bain's global fintech business, described the many technologies that are radically redefining financial services.

In part two of our fintech series, we’ll consider how investors have built out the capacity and expertise to navigate this fast-changing terrain.

“It’s really important that you have a bunch of people that have that deep technology expertise,” Jeff says, “whether it’s embedded finance or banking as a service or crypto or whatever it may be.”

We’ll see how investors are refining their fintech playbooks and homing in on markets and subsectors that could deliver differential returns.

“I don’t think the market has been saturated at all,” Jeff says, “despite the levels of investment that we’re seeing today.”
