Finanzchef24 secures four million euros in equity financing

Finanzchef24 GmbH, established in 2012, operates the largest independent small business insurance comparison portal (www.finanzchef24.de) and Finanzchef PRO for insurance brokers (www.finanzchefpro.de), has secured four million euros in a series B funding round from Munich-based venture capital firms Target Partners and Mercura Capital.

The Finanzchef24 team, led by Ralf Müller, Hendrik Rennert and Felix Schollmeier, are delighted with this sign of confidence from investors. With this injection of capital, the company plans to further expand its marketing activities and invest in its recently established Finanzchef PRO broker service. The funds will also be used to expand a number of strategic growth projects.

Waldemar Jantz, Partner at Target Partners GmbH, stated: "Following their very successful first financial year in 2013, we are pleased to continue our support for Finanzchef24 as they redefine the insurance market for small business." Helmut Zahn, General Manager of Mercura Capital GmbH, is also very positive about this investment decision: "With its unique technology in an exciting market sector, Finanzchef24 has outstanding growth opportunities, and we want to give them a sound financial foundation for that growth."
