What makes Royal Park Partners unique?

One thing that sets us apart is the relationships we have forged to build our vast network. We are connected to the biggest movers and shakers in the industry, working with a global network of over 20,000 influential investors and buyers of Fintech businesses.

By partnering with us, our Fintech clients can tap into the support and resources they need to reach new milestones, whatever stage they’re at in their journey.

That said, our secret sauce is really our incredible team. We have cherry picked the best minds in banking and boast over 80 years of combined global Fintech expertise, built across the world’s leading corporate finance houses.

Clients know they are in safe hands, having proven time and time again our ability to execute deals quickly, with precision, and most importantly – with the agility needed to navigate a rapidly evolving market.

Since 2019, we’ve consistently worked with some of the biggest names in the industry on capital raises, mergers and acquisitions, and IPOs, during buoyant as well as difficult market conditions. In 2020, we acted as exclusive advisors to Thought Machine on a $125 million funding round ahead of the company achieving unicorn status, and are proud to have more than 30 other deals across 6 continents under our belt.


How has the company evolved over the last couple of years?

Over the last three years, our vision and focus remained establishing our presence as the key player in the fintech advisory space, and it’s paid off.

Each year we continue to reach new markets and give innovative companies the rocket fuel to scale new heights. Last year, we opened our New York office and expanded our American coverage – bringing our tried-and-tested playbook to a new market. Our team has grown tenfold to date since launching, raised well over $1 billion for our clients and established the company as the most active Fintech advisor across EMEA.

Despite some wider industry turbulence over the past few months, we have consistently proven that fintech is a permanent and essential cornerstone of the global economy, with outstanding companies creating innovative solutions for better access to finance. We have continued to do deals (an average of one a month in 2022) when our competitors have faltered.

What can we hope to see from Royal Park Partners in the future?

We want to expand our reach and continue to be a trusted partner to many more incredibly innovative Fintechs around the globe who are ready to scale their business.

We truly believe that Fintech companies have been gifted a fresh opportunity to pause, reassess and pursue changes that will strengthen their business fundamentals – and we look forward to helping driven Fintechs come out of the other side stronger and reinvigorated.
