Black Pearls VC has invested PLN 2.94 million (EUR 700k) in Insly, a company that created an innovative software supporting insurance agents and brokers in effective management of sales and customer service activities. The transaction has an international character: our co-investors in the round of nearly PLN 9.2 million (EUR 2.2 million) are: Concentric Ventures and London Co-Investment Fund. Insly is already present in many European countries - including Britain, Lithuania and Latvia and has been founded in Estonia.
These assumptions are in line with the requirements of the Directive of the European Parliament and the EU Council on Insurance Distribution which is currently coming in force in Poland. Insly is also fully compatible with the requirements of the General Regulation on Personal Data Protection (RODO).
Piotr Bartos, Country Manager at Insly.
The Polish insurance market is large, but very fragmented, and the need to implement IT tools is high. Thanks to the investor’s support, we will expand the list of insurance companies offering their products via our platform and we will add a number of functionalities, like intelligent optimization of commission settlements. We hope that Polish insurance agents and brokers will be building their competitiveness with our help and with the support of Black Pearls VC, we will quickly build a strong position on the Polish market.
