The companies did not disclose the size of the investment.
The deal gives Atalaya Capital Management and Culpeper Capital Partners Specialty a minority stake in the insurer.
As a part of the deal, Culpeper senior managing director David King will become part of Mosaic’s board of directors, with immediate effect.
Mosaic Insurance co-founder and co-CEO Mitch Blaser said: “We’re excited to announce this important partnership for Mosaic as we grow critical mass and continue to take advantage of significant underwriting opportunities.
“Atalaya and Culpeper value what we’ve built to date, as well as Mosaic’s future growth potential, and they bring additional diverse financial-sector expertise that will be critical for the next stage of our journey.”
