ICON is a global FinTech corporate finance boutique based in London.  We work with a wide range of FinTech companies including young, game changing start-ups, established fast growth companies, venture capitalists, private equity firms and large global publicly-listed corporates.


We help FinTechs raise the capital they need to grow into larger global companies and when they’re ready to sell, we find an acquirer who’ll pay a strategic premium for them.  We have a deep expertise and industry knowledge of FinTech and are able to draw on a global network of contacts across the entire financial services ecosystem.


Our services include raising venture capital (both equity and venture debt), private equity and M&A advice. Our coverage is worldwide.


We are delighted to be a founding partner of the FinTech50 in 2012 and we continue to support the exceptional CEOs who are transforming every aspect of financial services with technology and we continue to help them secure the funding they need.


ICON is owned by its partners and provides truly independent advice. We do not charge for initial discussions and fees payable are linked to the successful completion of a transaction. If you need funding or you’re thinking about a sale, we’d love to hear from you. www.iconcorpfin.co.uk
