Fintech mergers and acquisitions (M&A) activity within the investment banking industry is set to increase in 2017, according to a survey of the financial markets industry published by law firm White & Case in November 2016. The findings of the survey highlighted how the sellside globally is increasingly relying on the inputs of agile fintech start-ups to develop innovative software tools and solutions to aid the resolution of complex problems such as regulatory implementation and compliance within the industry. However, GreySpark Partners believes that support for these short-term or temporary fintech start-up-driven fixes within the sellside will ultimately lead to the development of a broader industrial revolution within banking as a whole, forever changing the dynamic within banks.
