- Chrysalis (CHRY) holding, Wefox, the Berlin-based insurtech platform, has successfully closed a Series D funding round, raising $400m (comprising equity and debt) which now values the business at $4.5bn. The current valuation makes it the world’s most valuable privately held insurtech asset.The current valuation compares against the $3bn post money valuation achieved as part of the Series C funding round approximately twelve months ago, a 50% uplift. Chrysalis did not participate in the funding round and the achieved valuation underpins the current carrying value of the asset. Wefox is its second largest asset and represents 13.3% of the portfolio.
