Unlocking huge protection gap value by making the uninsurable insurable

Systemic risks are impacting people, planet and the public purse

but the risk industry has not found ways to solve these huge protection gaps

This market failure is what we go after

We’re finding low-risk innovations that address high-risk problems. This lets us capture huge value pools, create scaled impact, and expand the overall insurance landscape.
