Micruity raises $5 million

Micruity, a financial technology infrastructure company, has raised $5 million in funding from Prudential, State Street Global Advisors, TIAA Ventures, Pacific Life, and Western & Southern Financial Group, bringing its total funding to $11 million.

Founded in 2017, Micruity simplifies access to annuities and other guaranteed retirement income products. The Micruity platform connects recordkeepers, life insurers, and asset managers through a single connection, “significantly reducing the administrative burden” of managing multiple products across several plans while delivering targeted savings and income solutions.

The Canadian company will use the funding to expand support for accumulation annuities and non-guaranteed income products.

“The new funding enables Micruity to rapidly build out infrastructure not just for retirees in the drawdown phase of their retirement journey but also provide critical support for younger Americans still saving for retirement. Successive financial crises have eroded the retirement savings of many Americans who now face the prospect of outliving their savings. By building the infrastructure necessary to enhance the user experience of both guaranteed and non-guaranteed income products, Micruity, along with our partners, can help close this gap and deliver a safe and secure retirement.” – Trevor Gary, Founder and CEO of Micruity.

“A single access point means Prudential can quickly and easily work with multiple partners to deliver protected growth and protected income solutions — all with a seamless user experience to help expand access to retirement security.” – Ann Nanda, Head of Future Growth Initiatives and Distribution Enablement at Prudential Retirement Strategies.

“Micruity’s infrastructure provides us with the necessary data to deliver decumulation products that support sustainable drawdown strategies for retirees, enabling their hard-earned savings to last through their retirement. The scalable infrastructure enables us to quickly build out targeted solutions for our plan sponsor clients.” – Brendan Curran, US Head of Defined Contribution at State Street Global Advisors.

“Micruity has built an innovative infrastructure solution that powers institutional lifetime income products. We’re excited about the opportunity to work with Trevor and his team to drive secure retirement outcomes for more Americans.” – Wayne Baker, Chief Investment Officer at TIAA Ventures.

“Our continued collaboration with Micruity underscores the significance of delivering innovative and efficient tools that support Americans in making decisions around their retirement plans. This integrated platform offers a clear and compelling user experience at a crucial stage in a participant’s retirement journey and closely aligns with Pacific Life’s ongoing desire to provide confidence for generations.” – Karen Neeley, Vice President of Pacific Life’s Institutional Retirement Solutions Group.
