Convex takes stake in Quotech

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

Convex Group Limited, the Bermudian-based international specialty re/insurer, has acquired a strategic 7.7 per cent share in Quotech, the underwriter-led insurtech that creates practical systems for specialty insurers, brokers and MGAs.

Quotech announced that it has raised £1 million from a number of angel investors and Convex.

The company said proceeds from the funding round will be used to increase staff levels and provide additional resources to support the creation of custom-built technology platforms for underwriters and distributors in the global commercial and wholesale insurance sector.

Quotech’s clients include major risk carriers, brokers, and MGAs active in the London and international re/insurance markets.

Guillaume Bonnissent, Quotech chief executive and a former Lloyd’s underwriter, said: “This funding will enable Quotech to move to the next level of success by increasing our reach and extending our capacity, allowing us to provide a larger number of underwriting and broking firms with truly useful technology.

“We’ve already expanded our team of systems experts, and we will soon be adding additional personnel and resources to serve more clients. It’s fantastic to receive the vote of confidence that’s implied when a client invests in our vision, after experiencing first-hand the power of our approach and the systems we build.

“I gave up underwriting and returned to programming because I was frustrated by the low levels of utility delivered by the systems that had been built for the London-market companies I had worked for.

“Every platform we create at Quotech is designed to improve efficiency by eliminating those frustrations. Early investments in Quotech came from people who believed in me. This round is even more satisfying, because Convex and many of the angels who’ve backed the round believe in the technology.”

Convex Group CEO Paul Brand said: “We were drawn to Quotech as a supplier because they understand what we, as a London-market underwriter, need technology to do for us.

“We’ve made a strategic investment in the company because we believe Quotech is on the path to success. There are plenty of insurtech investments out there, but very few tech companies provide the kind of truly useful systems that Quotech has built for us.”
