Planck raises $23mn for its AI data platform for insurers

Planck has raised another US$23mn as part of its latest venture round, furthering its mission to build an AI-powered data platform for commercial insurers.

Insurtech startup Planck, which is building an AI-powered data and analytics platform for commercial insurers, has raised a further US$23mn as part of its latest venture round.

The round was led by Vintage Investment Partners alongside all of Planck’s existing backers, including Team8, Greenfield, Arbor Ventures, Viola, 3L Capital, HDI and Nationwide. It takes the total amount raised by the New York-based company to more than US$70mn, furthering its ambition to empower commercial insurers with the accurate, real-time insights they need.

Planck will use the money to bolster its product development and build out its burgeoning platform, alongside continued geographic expansion. The company recently launched an underwriting risk search engine, which solves for the shortcomings of traditional research methods; as well as a feature called Prospect Intelligence that helps carriers expand into new markets, reduce customer acquisition costs, and drive growth.

Planck ‘energised’ to bring AI insights to insurers

Six of the top ten commercial insurance carriers in the US are already signed up to the Planck platform, as well as a number of top carriers in Europe and Japan.

Planck founder and CEO Elad Tsur says: “Our record acceleration and the confidence of investors during this economic uncertainty is a strong indicator of the platform's value and necessity. We are energised to continue our journey of bringing the most advanced AI-powered insights to the financial services industry across the globe, and thankful for the ongoing trust of our customers and partner community.”

Gary Gregg, a former EVP for Liberty Mutual Group and now an investor in Planck’s latest round, adds: “By partnering with Planck, commercial insurance carriers and their agents can achieve breakthrough levels of improvement in their processes and profitability by having clear, real-time views into their underwriting and business risks that are not available from standard industry data flows and typical providers. Insurer partners will reap the benefits from these insights to greatly improve their customer experience, operations, and bottom line.”
