Raising seed funds
"We are currently acting as a wholesaler and are looking to have our own capacity in the next several months," said Anderson.
"As a wholesaler, we are working to help place coverages for a variety of covers (hot, cold, warm, directors and officers (D&O), property, errors and omissions (E&O), etc. We also act as a specialised underwriter for cryptoasset related risks.
"When we are an MGA, we intend to offer coverages around cryptoasset theft (hot, cold, warm) and will continue to assist with other coverages (e.g. D&O, property, E&O, etc)," he added.
Developing the use of blockchain
“55% of respondents feel companies are holding back on new blockchain initiatives and cryptoassets because they cannot get insurance cover.”
The company’s overall mission, then, can be summed up as redressing this balance and pioneering new ways of allowing the democratising and transparency-enhancing aspects of these two technologies to flourish.
