AXA Strategic Ventures has made its first investment in a US company – PolicyGenius. Founded in July 2014, PolicyGenius offers an online platform for consumers to review coverage and confidently research and compare quotes for term life, long-term disability, renters and pet insurance.

“We launched AXA Strategic Ventures to invest in companies that drive innovation in our industry, making it more digitally-enabled and transparent,” says Manish Agarwal, General Partner of AXA Strategic Ventures. “PolicyGenius perfectly reflects this investment profile. The company’s tailored Insurance Checkup™ and customer-friendly quote comparisons make shopping for and purchasing insurance straightforward and accessible to a growing client population.”
