British insurtech startup Humn lands funding from Shell Ventures, as it goes international

British insurtech startup Humn has today announced an additional seven-figure investment from Shell Ventures and existing investor Marbruck Investments. This funding will accelerate Humn’s domestic and international roll-out as they grow their presence as the leading innovator of fleet insurance in Europe.

Founded in 2018, Humn has built a solution that consolidates the traditionally separate categories of fleet insurance and risk management to solve an overriding customer requirement for more transparent fleet insurance.

Their risk platform analyses over 500 ‘in vehicle’ and external data points to provide an entirely contextual assessment of driver performance and a clear basis for the pricing of their dynamic insurance.

Over the last year, Humn has secured an insurance licence from the Financial Conduct Authority and insurance capacity with delegated underwriting authority. Humn is now rolling out their flexible data-driven insurance, Rideshur, with select broker networks, distribution partners and fleets.

”Partnering with Shell Ventures brings not only fresh capital, but also an investor with a thriving global connected fleet business and expertise to share. We are looking forward to working with Shell and bringing our class-leading motor fleet insurance product with explainable pricing to an even wider audience”, said Mark Musson, CEO and founder of Humn.

To date, Humn has helped its customers by reducing their claims cost by 24%, accident frequency by 65% and insurance premium by 10%. The company has gained industry recognition via leading insurtech awards including Insurtech 100 2020, Red Herring – Europe Top 100 Winner 2020, and Startup Grind: Silicon Valley: 2020 Alumnus.
