Treasury and payments solutions for insurance firm Vitesse has completed a $93m Series C funding round.

The funding round for Vitesse was led by KKR with participation from existing investors such as Hannover Digital Investments.

As a result, Patrick Devine, managing director at KKR, will join the Vitesse board of directors.

The funding will support Vitesse and its move and expansion into the US, while also allowing the company to continue to invest in products.

In addition, Vitesse announced the appointment of Curt Hess as executive president in the US to oversee the firm and its expansion in the region.

Phillip McGriskin, co-founder and CEO of Vitesse, said: “This latest funding is a strong testament to the confidence our investors have in our mission to revolutionise payment and treasury management in the global insurance market. We are thrilled to be working with KKR as we embark on this next phase of growth and to capitalise on their team’s strong industry expertise. As we continue to grow our presence in the US, I’m particularly excited about Curt joining the Vitesse family, who brings significant knowledge and expertise to support us on this dynamic growth journey.”
