Bought By Many, which was founded in 2012 in London by CEO Steven Mendel and CTO Guy Farley as digital insurance company, became an exclusively pet insurance company in 2017.

The insurer, which entered the US market this year, currently covers almost half a million pets globally.

In the last 12 months, it has almost doubled its gross written premium (GWP) for three consecutive years to over $220m.

Bought By Many CEO and co-founder Steven Mendel said: “With the support of EQT Growth and existing investors, we are now poised to reach millions more pet parents, as we continue to develop an enhanced pet health offering that takes care of every angle.”
