UK-based insurtech firm Superscript has raised £45m in a Series B funding round led by existing investor BHL UK.

New investor The Hartford and the existing investors, including Concentric and Base Capital also joined the round. 

Superscript plans to use the proceeds to enhance its underwriting and broking capabilities using machine learning and diversify its insurance products and services for international distribution. 

The funds will also be used to build on the firm’s existing embedded partnership capabilities.

Established in 2015, the firm offers insurance solutions to small and medium-sized businesses and ‘high growth’ technology firms.  

Superscript CEO and co-founder Cameron Shearer said: “In the context of a challenging macroeconomic environment and shift in global investor appetites, this funding round represents a huge vote of confidence in what we’re building at Superscript.
