Customer Case Study with INSHUR’s Head of Finance
- Meow Technologies, Inc.
INSHUR is an embedded insurance provider for the on-demand economy in the United States, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands.
Founded in 2016, INSHUR is an established Series B startup that’s raised over $60 million with investors that include Viola Fintech, Jerusalem Venture Partners and Munich Re Ventures.
Today, we are featuring Beatrice Genin-Lomier, Head of Finance at INSHUR. Prior to INSHUR, Beatrice spent almost 15 years leading Accounting, FP&A and various finance functions at Kimberly-Clark, a $50 billion publicly traded CPG business.
Without further ado, we’re learning about why her team is using Meow to manage their cash.
1. Why use Meow compared to a legacy provider or other options?
“Every single finance team wants the combination of legacy bank safety and security with the easy-to-use interface of a financial technology company.
Meow married both because their treasury products enable us to get our own brokerage account at BNY Mellon Pershing*.
You get top yields and security. But I also love that we have our own dedicated slack channel for customer support questions.
Banking is mission-critical. The Meow team responds in seconds and works around the clock to make sure we have a delightful experience.”
2. Tell me a bit about your priorities and how you think about cash management for your startup.
“Our top priority will always be safety. Next, we care about maximizing yield. Lastly, we prioritize operational simplicity with a focus on accounting integrations and application navigation.
The power of working with a financial technology company like Meow is they’re 100% focused on solving the safety, security and transparency piece.”
3. What about Meow has stood out to you that causes you to continue using the platform?
“I love Meow’s multi-entity functionality. This makes it easy to manage and earn yield across our TopCo and/or subsidiaries all from a single dashboard.
Lastly, the ability to auto-roll U.S. Treasury Bill maturities and withdrawal funds when necessary removes a big pain point from previous banking experiences.”
4. Given that INSHUR is a global business, how are you thinking about utilizing Meow for these needs?
“INSHUR is a global business with multi-entity, multi-account, and multi-currency needs.
Our goal is to maximize interest income, minimize fees, and minimize operational hassle associated with managing our global business exposure across USD, Sterling and Euros.
With Meow's recent U.K. launch, I’m excited for the opportunity to consolidate, simplify and earn significant interest income across our currency mix.”
