• Israeli FinTech investment is on track to reach $3.4bn in 2022, based on the first half of 2022, which would yield a 5.5% drop from 2021 levels. Israeli FinTech has resisted the global 24% drop in FinTech investment from Q1 to Q2 2022 instead increasing by 7.6% due to its dominating CyberTech industry. Deal activity in the country is expected to fall slightly in 2022 to 162 deals in total, a 17% drop from 2021.
• CyberTech was the most active sector in Israel accounting for 40% of the deals in H1 2022 and WealthTech was the second most active sector accounting for 10% of total deal activity in the first six months. Global CyberTech deal activity is expected to rise 7.4% based on Q1 2022 results and Israel is poised to benefit accounting for 8.5% of these deals.
