An in-depth description of the role
MTech Capital is a $150 million, newly-established, InsureTech focused, Venture Capital firm with offices in London and Los Angeles. We focus on technology-enabled investment opportunities which we believe can transform one or more elements of the insurance industry (what we broadly refer to as “InsureTech”). Our ambition is to become the preeminent venture capital firm for InsureTech entrepreneurs globally. This is a great opportunity to join us at the start of what promises to be an exciting and rewarding journey.
MTech was founded by Kevin and Brian – a team with deep expertise and complementary skills in the insurance industry and venture capital.
Kevin spent 22 years in insurance investment banking, most recently as the Global Head of Insurance Investment Banking at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, and prior to that, as Global Head of Insurance Banking at Citigroup. He also spent 7 years as an executive at AIG. Kevin maintains senior level relationships across the insurance industry globally, having advised many of the largest companies during his banking career.
Brian was a Partner at Upfront Ventures for 14 years, specializing in investing in early-stage companies in the financial technology (“FinTech”) sector. He and his partners at Upfront raised $375 million across two funds and managed more than $700 million while he was at the firm. Brian has also invested directly in over 15 Fintech and InsureTech companies.
We seek highly motivated, resourceful people at the Associate level with excellent analytical skills and a strong track record in a recognised strategy firm. Specific knowledge of the insurance industry is a positive but not required.
We have a great opportunity ahead of us. Having just raised a sizeable fund we are actively seeking investments and will be very active over the next 12 months. InsureTech is one of the hottest industry sectors and rapidly growing and evolving. This is an opportunity to play an early, integral role in building MTech Capital into the global leader in InsureTech venture capital. As a classic VC role, it involves:
- industry analyses (insurance and asset management),
- contributing to deal flow into the firm by actively contacting startups,
- assisting in the evaluation of potential investments, and
- reporting to our investors, who are among the largest and most sophisticated insurance companies globally.
Highly competitive basic salary (envisaged between £70-90k) with significant scope for annual bonus and, over time, equity participation.
