Ki is the first fully digital and algorithmically-driven Lloyd's of London syndicate, offering instant capacity, anytime, anywhere. In 2020, Ki received the largest ever pre-series A investment for a FinTech in Europe, raising $500m from Blackstone and Fairfax. In our first year of trading, Ki became one of the largest ever start-up syndicates in Lloyd's with a 2021 full-year premium exceeding $400m. Find out more about how we built a data-first digital syndicate using a platform with proprietary algorithms, in collaboration with partners UCL and Google, to revolutionise a 333-year old insurance industry.
