INSTANDA, the no-code core insurance platform provider has announced the close of its latest $45million fundraising led by Toscafund, one of Europe’s leading Growth Equity investment firms for financial services companies, with the participation of existing investor Dale Ventures.
The funds will be used to enhance the platform’s capabilities, with a focus on billing, claims and product accelerators, especially for the US and Canadian markets. This will enable the platform to serve a wider range of insurers and further transform customer experience by dramatically reducing claims processing costs, digitizing all aspects of the insurance value chain, and building full product aggregation capabilities.
INSTANDA also aims to expand its product presence, building ISO, NCCI, and AAIS product templates. With these accelerators, the brand will expand its support of Personal, Commercial, and Specialty products for both admitted and non-admitted insurers, further cementing its position as the insurance industry’s most adaptive, fast, best-value core platform for carriers, brokers and MGAs.
Following a $19.5 million raise at the beginning of 2020, INSTANDA‘s growth momentum continued through ‘lock-down’ and increased further in 2021 as it added 21 new clients across the US, UK, Europe, and Japan, reaching over 70 clients globally by Q1 2022. INSTANDA’s US clients include Markel, National General and Brokkrr Inc. Future revenue growth is forecast as insurers digitize customer interactions and core operations and turn to the modern, proven, scalable INSTANDA platform to meet a wide range of changing needs.
Commenting on the fundraise, Tim Hardcastle, CEO & Co-founder said: “INSTANDA’s no-code insurance core platform was built by insurers for insurers based on the belief that technology should be used to accelerate change and innovation at low cost. This is what sets INSTANDA apart from the crowd. No other platform allows carriers and MGAs across all lines of insurance to fully embrace the diversity of insurance and respond to the anticipated change in consumer needs and behavior.
“As a true disruptor we are restless by nature, constantly striving to stay ahead of the curve, to not only meet our clients’ needs but pre-empt them. The funding from Toscafund is a significant milestone and will provide added impetus to aim higher in delivering exceptional client and user interactions.”
Greg Murphy, EVP North America added: “Insurers are beginning to change their expectations about costs and timelines for core system transformations. When they realize digital transformation no longer requires millions of dollars and multiple years, the lightbulb goes on and they start to embrace the power of our platform.”
