Shorter newsletter today. We’ve just updated our list of top deals, hiring moves, and partnerships between (re)insurers and startups through Q1’2017. How deep the partnerships go varies, of course, but you can keep track of what happened here.
Yesterday, Decisely, a small business and HR benefits platform, announced a $60M investment from Two Sigma Private Investments and EPIC Insurance Brokers and Consultants.
Two Sigma’s Brian Modesitt joins the board. Modesitt also oversees Attune, which is Two Sigma’s technology and analytics partnership with Hamilton Insurance Group and AIG.
Last month, Attune announced that former OnDeck COO James Hobson would join as its new CEO. We’ll be hearing from Hobson on the future of small business insurance at our Future of Fintech conference in June. Subscribers can receive a $1000 discount off tickets with the code “NLFintech”.
