The insurance startup is aimed at the gig economy
- Zego offers flexible insurance to freelance workers such as drivers for Uber or riders for Deliveroo.
- The firm is backed by 15 reinsurers, including Swiss Re, and has secured $42m (£32.7m) in series B funding.
- Currently operating in five countries the firm is now eyeing expansion across Europe.
What this means
The license, issued by the Gibraltarian regulator, will allow Zego to act faster than it could under the banner of other insurers, meaning it can speed up innovation of its product while also lessening the risk impact.
