Vesttoo, a leading global Alternative Reinsurance and Investment platform, announced its $15m Series B equity investment from Mouro Capital, which a large multinational bank backs, and MS&AD Ventures, the corporate venture capital fund of Japan-based MS&AD Insurance Group Holdings, the fifth largest insurance conglomerate in the world.

The Series B round, which comes just three months after Hanaco Ventures led the company’s Series A round, will drive the expansion of Vesttoo’s Insurance-Linked Program (ILP) offering, an innovative security-based investment portfolio, as well as the world’s first fully digital marketplace for insurance-based risk transfer and investments.

Vesttoo’s ILP investment portfolio is focused on fully collateralized Life and P&C reinsurance transactions. Through the ILP program, investors can pledge existing securities as collateral in these transactions, earning additional spreads over current yields (long-term, structured alpha) without increasing their risk profile.

Furthermore, Vesttoo’s marketplace, a first of its kind, provides insurers with access to capital market originated capacity. On the other hand, investors benefit from direct access to a new asset class comprised of low volatility insurance risks and attractive risk-reward.

Yaniv Bertele, CEO of Vesttoo, said: “Mouro Capital and MS&AD see the same opportunity we see: Vesttoo’s marketplace as a global deal pipeline that drives capacity directly from the capital markets to insurers while delivering exceptional return on risk to investors by opening up this new asset class. Their partnership is an amazing vote of confidence in us and is a signal to financial and insurance institutions that we are significantly increasing business capacity. Together, we are going to scale our ILP and fully digital marketplace.”

Chris Gottschalk, General Partner at Mouro Capital, said: “We are excited to partner with Vesttoo as they continue to innovate and bring new products, such as the ILP, to market for both insurers and the capital markets. We have been impressed with team’s ability to leverage technology to build a truly differentiated marketplace.”
