Matic raises $24 million led by IA Capital
Matic Insurance announced the close of a $24 million funding round led by IA Capital Group .
Founded in 2014 and a team of ~134, Matic is digital insurance agency that integrates home insurance within the mortgage process. The new funding will support the growth of Matic’s partnerships and integrations with insurance carriers and distribution partners across emerging channels and verticals. Matic’s proprietary technology reduces the time it takes to compare and purchase policies from an average of two to three days to less than 10 minutes, expediting loan closings and helping mortgage customers save money. In addition to fueling their recent expansion into auto and life insurance, the new funding will support partnerships outside of the mortgage industry. Matic was recently awarded a contract with a top five global financial institution to deploy their insurance solutions across origination, servicing, and banking client channels.
“With our B round secured, we will be able to further support customer and partnership demand across new channels. I am excited to have our new investors on board and for our existing investors to continue to support our mission of simplifying insurance. I am thrilled to have Andrew Lerner join our board of directors, bringing 25 years of financial services and insurance industry experience to our team of over 150.” – Matic CEO, Ben Madick.
“Matic has been synonymous with expertise in insurtech since their inception a few years ago. We chose to partner with Matic because of their unrivaled proprietary technology, differentiated distribution, and the customer-focused vision and values carried forth by their team. We look forward to seeing Matic’s growth continue as they expand their product offerings, partnerships, and internal talent.” – Managing Partner, IA Capital, Andrew Lerner.
Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Matic’s customer-centric model continued to grow and navigate the changing home buying and refinancing landscape, seeing a 40% increase in customers leveraging the platform in Q2 compared to Q1.
