The IIFL Group’s early-stage investment vehicle, IIFL Fintech Fund, has invested $2 million (around Rs 16.5 crore) in insurance technology startup Insurance Samadhan for a 16% stake, valuing the platform at around $13 million (around Rs 107 crore).

The startup also received another $1 million from other investors in its Series A funding round.

Samadhan is an online platform that deals with resolving insurance-related complaints, including mis-selling, lapsed policies, policy rejection, fraud or claim rejection in life, health and general insurance.

Deepak Bhuvneshwari Uniyal, Co-founder and CEO at Samadhan, said that the fund raised will primarily be used to build tech and marketing.
