Global insurtech for embedded insurance Cover Genius raised $70 million in a Series D funding round led by Dawn Capital, with participation from New York-based Atlas Merchant Capital and existing investors King River Capital and GSquared.

Cover Genius is authorised in around 60 countries and all 50 US states and delivers personalised insurance and warranty products in any country, language, and currency, alongside available instant claim payments around the world.
