Fintech the most popular sector amongst HNW investors, research finds
17/05/2018 , News Team

The most popular sector among high net worth and professional investors is Fintech, according to research from direct investment platform, Capitama.

The research showed that 69 percent of Capitama investors are interested in fintech investment opportunities and 67 percent want to see software and technology deals. Of the nine different investment types available on Capitama, growth funding is the most popular (83 percent) followed by early stage investments (72 percent), buy-outs (63 percent), and real estate (47 percent).  

Capitama’s current registered investors have a total annual investment capacity of £7.6 billion. Of this total capacity, investors have expressed an annual investment capacity of £5 billion into private equity opportunities, with £2.3 billion total annual investment in debt and income opportunities. 

The interest of the registered investors in philanthropic and social impact opportunities currently stands at £300 million per year. This is an additional theme on Capitama given the rise in interest in these organisations from wealthy individuals and organisations. 

Simon Ramery, co-founder and chief executive at Capitama, said: “Fintech is a sector that has seen huge growth in the past three years and evidence suggests it’s just the start. Our data shows that investors see real value in the companies operating in this space, and that they see a strong future for the UK fintech scene despite Brexit.

“We’re also really excited about the commitment of investors to look at philanthropic and social impact investing.  £300 million is a considerable total of investable capital and we hope to be able to help put this to good use.”
