“The underserved and disempowered segment of the Indian population can easily slide below poverty with minor health or income setback. Our focus is to carve strong distribution partnerships with products that are contextual to the lifestyle and risks of this target segment and provide ample financial scaffolding. We are excited about the strength of belief that our investors have shown in our vision to reimagine risk mitigation relevant to the needs of these consumers.”
Anuradha Ramachandran, Investments Director at Flourish, said, “Toffee Insurance has created a completely new approach to helping people navigate financial shocks and create safety nets by really unbundling policies to cover those risks that most Indian consumers are worried about. As global fintech investors, this flexible model created by Toffee Insurance is one we want to amplify and replicate in other markets to help solve the global financial health crisis.”
