Our positive experience collaborating with Verily over the last two years has given us confidence in expanding the relationship towards potential new areas of innovation in the life and health space.”
Verily CEO, chairman, and founder Andy Conrad said: “During our two-year relationship, we have been able to show Swiss Re our vision for how Verily can impact precision health. We welcome Swiss Re and their expertise to our group of investors who see the potential of Verily to impact the larger healthcare ecosystem.”

Granular caters to self-funded employers via a data-based approach to help them manage risks, and costs and achieve better outcomes.
