According to a report published by Accenture Strategy and the Partnership Fund for New York City, Q1 2016 was the first quarter ever that New York passed Silicon Valley in fintech venture financing.

Financial technology (fintech) companies based in New York have been able to raise $690 million in venture capital funding in the first quarter of the year, against to the $511 raised in the Silicon Valley area. Compared to the previous year, fintech investment in New York tripled to $2.3 billion in 2015.

While in 2010, only the 37% investments went to fintech companies collaborating with financial institutions, in 2015 the percentage rose to 83%.
