(businesspress24) - London, 1 February 2018 - The latest Fintech M&A Market Report from technology mergers and acquisitions advisors, Hampleton Partners, reveals just how deeply digital disruptors are impacting on deal valuations.

Almost half of this total was achieved by the massive Worldpay acquisition of Vantiv for $10.4 billion. Most of the other growth in deal values was delivered by a total of 21 transactions disclosed above $100 million, more than a doubling from previous half year periods.
