Investments in FinTech and InsurTech remain high

FinTech firms continue to attract investment from start-ups, as new entities look for ways to disrupt current financial markets, while venture capitalists remain interested in investing in companies, although they have taken a more cautious approach. Latest figures show investment in Q2 2017 running at around $8.4 billion, around double of Q1, though still lower than Q2 2016.
