It offers a broad spectrum of insurance coverage options, ranging from health to gadget insurance. Brands like Samsung depend on Bolttech for device protection insurance.
  • Portfolio and Expansion: Bolttech’s portfolio includes over 6,000 insurance products, 230 insurers, 700 distribution partners, and $55B worth of annualized premiums. With the infusion of new funding, Bolttech plans to expand its reach to Indonesia, the Philippines, and Vietnam.

  • Additional Financiers: Participants in this funding round include Pacific Century Group, Singapore’s government investment vehicle EDBI, Spanish VC fund Mundi Ventures, and San Francisco-based VC firm Activant Capital.
