Strategic InsurTech Fund

Eos Venture Partners closed its Strategic InsurTech Fund which has a mandate to invest in global insurance technology companies. The fund was announced in May of 2020, when the firm felt the COVID-19 pandemic could act as a catalyst for further adoption of insurance technologies. The fund included Tokio Marine and Direct Line Group as partners. And the fund invests in companies in the insurance value chain, including automated and AI assisted underwriting and claims products.

Penny James, CEO of Direct Line Group, speaking on the partnership with Eos Venture Partners, said:

This partnership will give us a window into the trends developing around the world of InsurTech. We want to disrupt the market with new and innovative products and services for our customers and being part of Eos' global innovation community will help us deliver this.
Partnership with Marsh

Marsh entered into an enhanced collaboration agreement with Eos Venture Partners in order to create risk management solutions for the brokerage's clients. The partnership works to use Marsh's Bluestream platform—a cloud-based digital broker platform to offer insurance products to new customers—as part of a delivery path for new products.

The first project in the partnership is being developed by Concirrus, which aims to deliver real-time analytics to improve the risk management capabilities of Marsh's global marine clients.
