Ethos cost more than $ 400 million
Ethos, an insurance fintech startup based in San Francisco, has raised $ 60 million in venture funding, now has a market value of nearly $ 500 million.
The investors were GV (formerly Google Ventures), Goldman Sachs, Sequoia Capital and Accel.
Celebrities such as Jay Z, Will Smith and Robert Downey Jr. have expressed their support for Ethos..
Ethos is part of a group of fintech startups that are trying to reshape the insurance market. Known as insurtech, they rock this conservative market. Insurance is not getting as much attention as digital banking or investment digital, but it is a growing segment of the fintech market. There are many opportunities for financial technology companies. Venture investors understand this well and place their bets on such startups..
The company uses data analysis to predict a person’s life expectancy and argues that the vast majority of customers do not need to take a medical test to be eligible for coverage. it opens up great opportunities for many American families who need insurance services, but do not have access to them for one reason or another.
When accessing Ethos services via a mobile phone, it takes ten minutes to apply and receive an approved life insurance contract, which is generally much cheaper than traditional life insurance. For most clients, medical examinations are not required. Instead, the company uses predictive analytics technology based on information provided by the customer, which is actually confirmed by his medical personally identifiable information. All data is checked by the insurance commissioner, this allows Ethos to issue life insurance online. Ethos also ditched the commission model to offer customers products that meet their needs, no matter how much the company makes from it..
