Health insurance startup Safety Wing said to raise $8m in funding

Safety Wing, a digital health insurance platform based in Norway, has reportedly scored $8m in a capital injection.

Creandum served as the lead investor, with participation also coming from byFounders and Rocketship, according to a report from Forbes.

With the funds, the company is planning to expand its product offering.

Safety Wing offers consumers access to travel medical insurance, remote health insurance and global health insurance.

Consumers can buy insurance even if they are already on their journey. The subscription model means users can automatically renew the policy every 28 days, until an end-date is specified.

One of the new features the company is looking to build is a global retirement product, which allows users to still access pension savings when they move internationally.

The company is also building a remote virtual doctor consultation service, which will operate globally.
