Fintech Fundings: 17 Companies Raise $4.8 Billion Week Ending April 22

money_scrabbleDue to the massive $4.5 billion funding at Alipay’s Ant Financial, we just set the one-week record for fintech venture funding with $4.79 billion (of which $125 million was debt). However, for the first time this year, there were fewer than 20 deals during the week. But with 39 deals last week and 17 this week, it could hardly be called a slowdown.

The total number of deals YTD stands at 419, nearly double last year’s 223. Total dollars raised YTD is now $13.6 billion, 2.5x the $5.5 billion raised during the same period a year ago.
