bolttech, one of the fastest-growing global Insurtech unicorns, reveals that it has completed an extension of its $180 million series A round that was led by Activant Capital Group, bringing the series total to $210 million.

As mentioned in a release, this is the largest ever Series A investment round for an Insurtech firm. The company confirmed that it has added new strategic investors, including Singapore-headquartered global investor EDBI and Alma Mundi Insurtech Fund, Spain.

As noted in the announcement:

“With a full suite of digital and data-driven capabilities, bolttech powers connections between insurers, distributors, and customers to make it easier and more efficient to buy and sell insurance and protection products. bolttech has built a global footprint that serves more than 7.7 million customers in 26 markets across 3 continents – North America, Asia, and Europe.”

The release also mentioned that the additional funding should assist bolttech with further enabling its partners and clients with robust technology and digital capabilities. Bringing on these new  investors should also help with strengthening its presence in Southeast Asia, Europe, and its other existing markets, “as the business accelerates its international growth strategy.”
