InsurTech Better.com raises £132mn in round including AmEx, Citi and Goldman

Home-financing startup Better.com has raised £132mn ($160mn) in its series C funding round.

In Brief:

  • The business was started in 2016 and aims to speed up the mortgage application process by digitising many elements, claiming to cut closing time down by as much as 50%.
