The partners have been directly involved in Fintech exits totalling in excess of $500m since 2002. We are not bankers, we are a team of professionals that combine skills in entrepreneurship, strategy, branding, legal and M&A to offer a more complete solution to meet your needs depending on where you are in the business cycle.
Fintech is empowering new competitors and start-ups to move into parts of the banking business but, paradoxically, it is also helping banks to create better, more convenient products and services for their clients. It is also leading to a shift away from ‘disruption’ to ‘co-creation‘ as increased cooperation between traditional banks and innovative start-ups is resulting in totally new business models and revenue streams. The Payment Services Directive (PSD2) will further disrupt the EU Payments market by igniting digital transformation towards a secure, open, API based, customer centric service that will create opportunities for new market entrants across Europe. Allied to that is the emergence of blockchain and crypto assets that have the potential to fundamentally change and reshape the Fintech landscape globally.
Rockfield is at the forefront of these developments and works with founders and their partners to help raise growth capital, scale, or to plan and execute your exit.
