M&A trends & market analysis

During the Perth 2017 Globalscope conference, the network’s global Financial Services sector team met to discuss recent transactions and the evolving underlying structural drivers of the global sector M&A landscape.

A key theme is the increasing reliance on both digital payments and cryptocurrency around the world. More details can be obtained from team members or regional heads – see contact details below.

Lower-mid market observations

Largest Russian Institution Under Watch

Russia’s Central Bank announced the launch of a financial rehabilitation program for Otkritie Group, the country’s largest private financial institution. According to Russian monetary authority, Otkritie requires a significant capital increase and extensive measures to improve its financial health. As a result of the process, Russia’s Central Bank may take up to 75% equity position in the group.

Blockchain in Focus, but Uncertainty Lingers

Central banks and governments continue to voice their views on Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, which has resulted in prices becoming even more volatile than usual. One example is the recent ban imposed by Chinese authorities on initial coin offerings in the country, which led to a dramatic drop in Bitcoin prices and put a question mark on the future of a Chinese blockchain-based economy.

Sector themes

Digital Payments Providers Under Pressure

Mounting consumer pressure for faster, seamless, cheaper and more secure digital payments will press companies to collaborate and move quickly in order to keep up. This will also fuel consolidation in the industry. The latest development is the global fund Hellman & Friedman, which is fronting an investor group, bidding to acquire the Nordic payment system provider NETS for $5.1bn. Hellman & Friedman wants to use the NETS platform for European consolidation of the payment service industry and subsequent expansion into e-commerce.

Banks Continue to Embrace Cloud & AI Tech

Banks are exploring opportunities for IT to increase their range of services and value proposition. In Russia, for example, these efforts are largely led by Sberbank which recently announced the launch of a cloud service for SME / e-commerce companies. There are plans, too, to develop a legal chat-bot and other initiatives in the high-tech area. M&A opportunities may arise for smaller IT companies that develop FinTech solutions that can be “plugged in” to larger corporates.

Investment Managers Turn to Robots

Some of the worlds oldest asset and wealth managers are turning to robots and artificial intelligence to increase profits. Some have moved to using algorithmic trading platforms, whilst others are removing the need for some back office staff, thus reducing costs and increasing productivity.
