We analyze funding, valuations, and M&A activity in the insurance distribution platform space to understand how the market is maturing.
Insurance distribution platforms are gaining steam.
In May, Bolttech closed a $196M mega-round and wefox announced a $55M follow-on investment to its Series B. Meanwhile, insurance executives are increasingly emphasizing distribution as a priority, with earnings transcript mentions of “insurance distribution” doubling since 2021.
Insurance distribution platforms make it easier for both insurers and non-insurance companies to offer insurance products to customers across multiple channels. Using these platforms, insurers can scale their omnichannel distribution efforts across online/mobile apps, embedded insurance, and agency channels.
