Founded in 2015 by Israel-born Assaf Wand and Eyal Navon, Hippo analyzes data from municipal building records, satellite imagery, and smart home devices to enable customers to get a quote and qualify for coverage “in 60 seconds or less.” It also monitors the insured assets and lets users know when repairs or weather protections are needed. The company’s policies are backed by “world-leading” reinsurers, it said.

 

 

Hippo intends to use the funding to grow its operations, the company said in a statement.
