Canadian digital life insurance solution PolicyMe has secured $13.52m (C$18m) in equity and debt funding in a Series A round, which saw the participation of three new investors.

Insurance firms RGAX, Securian Financial and SiriusPoint were the new backers in the round, where current investors HCS Capital and Westdale Properties also took part.

Additionally, a tier 1 Canadian bank joined the round.

PolicyMe plans to use the capital to expedite the launch of its suite of products that will be distributed through direct-to-consumer and business-to-business-to-consumer (B2B2C) channels.

These products, expected to be launched in the next 12 months, are designed to serve large membership and employee groups.

The insurtech will soon unveil a new illness product offering to cover more than 40 health conditions.
