Munich/Denver, CO, 21 September 2022 — Allianz X has co-led a Series D funding round of the U.S. insurtech Pie Insurance with a total volume of 315 million U.S. dollars. In addition to Allianz X and fellow co-lead Centerbridge Partners, new and existing investors participated in the round, including Gallatin Point Capital and White Mountains Insurance Group, among others.

For Pie, this is the second financing round in two years — both of which have been led by Allianz X. In March 2021, investors provided 118 million U.S. dollars in a Series C round to further drive Pie’s growth. Since then, Pie expanded its coverage into 38 U.S. states and Washington D.C, doubled its gross written premiums, and increased its annualized run rate premium to more than 300 million U.S. dollars.

With the help of the newly invested capital, Pie will continue its evolution from managing general agent (MGA) to full-stack insurer, owning a larger part of the value chain itself. In addition, Pie will further strengthen the growth of its core business — workers’ comp insurance for small businesses — expand into new lines, and further invest in the extensive technologies that are already key competitive advantages for Pie.

“We’ve been continuously impressed by Pie’s innovation and ability to deliver strong growth and underwriting results since our relationship began with co-leading the company’s Series C round in early-2021,” said Nazim Cetin, CEO of Allianz X. “We’ll be there to support Pie every step of the way as the company continues its bold transformation to a full-stack insurer and expansion into new lines of business.”

“We’re proud to partner for a second time with Allianz X on today’s monumental funding round,” said John Swigart, co-founder and CEO of Pie. “Our ability to grow rapidly while still focusing on delivering profitable unit economics and sustainable loss ratios, is proving to be a key industry differentiator and attractive investment opportunity. We look forward to a long and successful future ahead with strong partners like Allianz X as we work to transform the future of commercial insurance.”

Pie is a leading digital provider of workers’ comp insurance for small businesses in the U.S. Thanks to a unique combination of extensive in-house databases and advanced analytics, Pie provides automated quotes for most companies with virtually no delay. The high quality of its data analysis enables fair prices for customers on the one hand, and low loss ratios for Pie on the other. At the same time, Pie also offers insurance agents easy-to-use access to its platform, so they can quickly make tailored offers to their small business customers. Allianz is a meaningful partner to Pie, as an investor via Allianz X and reinsurance partner via Allianz Reinsurance America.
