As a Investor or Incubator, why might you be seeking capacity?
You may be an individual investor, an incubator, accelerator, InsurTech VC, private equity house or insurance group seeking to assist your portfolio company with obtaining capacity in order for the business to trade.
Your portfolio company may have come up with a new product, distribution method or underwriting approach and need to test this in order to ascertain market demand or viability. Often, this testing is a prelude to securing additional funding from investors, insurance accelerators or insurers themselves.
Your portfolio company may be an e-commerce expert who really understands electronic distribution, but lacks the product, class and underwriting expertise regarding risk selection, rating and pricing of risks and wordings. In turn, you may be seeking an insurance partner which brings traditional insurance expertise to your distribution channel.
Your portfolio company may be at a stage in its development where it is constrained by its relationship with existing Capacity Partners who operate at a much slower pace. In turn, you are seeking new Capacity Partners which sees the business as later stage rather than an early-stage start-up.
You may be seeking better commission or fee arrangements than those on offer with existing Capacity Providers.
