Leading B2B2C Fintech Poised for Continued Expansion

New York, NY – August 1, 2019 – Even Financial (“Even”), the leading API for financial services search, acquisition, and monetization, announced today that Chris Scott has joined the firm as Chief Revenue Officer. Scott, an ad tech veteran with over 20 years of experience across industry leaders including Criteo, Google, Admeld, and Taboola, will be part of Even’s executive team, responsible for the company’s revenue generation strategy and execution.

Scott is a seasoned business executive with an impressive track record helping hyper-growth companies scale and achieve sustainable revenue growth through a relentless focus on prioritizing customer and partner needs. As Chief Revenue Officer, he will drive integration across Even’s revenue stack, including sales, business development, and account management. As part of the executive leadership team, Scott will play a key role pioneering new markets and partnership opportunities, accelerating pipeline growth across the company’s key network partners: financial institutions, channel partners, and enterprise organizations (personal finance, tax prep, retail, lifestyle, member, and workforce).

“Chris brings to Even a passion for growing businesses and a proven track record of success in leading global sales organizations, with deep and lasting partner relationships,” said Phill Rosen, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Even. “We’re thrilled to add his depth of experience, leadership, and operational acumen to Even as we continue to transform the way financial institutions find and connect with consumers.”

Scott has helped build and scale leading B2B ad marketplaces for more than 20 years. He was Senior Vice President of Global Real-Time Bidding & Publisher Strategy at Criteo, where he oversaw the company’s buying function across all global ad exchanges and Tier 1 publisher relationships, through its successful $250M IPO. Scott was Vice President of Publisher Development at Admeld and was instrumental in the company’s successful sale to Google, where he stayed on as part of the transition leadership team. In addition, he was President and Chief Revenue Officer at ConvertMedia, partnering to drive the company’s sale to Taboola, where he then served as Vice President of Video Revenue. He holds an MBA from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and a BSBA from Washington University.

“Even solves a significant pain point in financial services acquisition by seamlessly connecting supply and demand via our API, turning any consumer touchpoint into an ROI-driven, programmatic acquisition source with full compliance and security,” said Scott. “I’m thrilled to join the amazing team Phill has assembled, and to be part of an organization that is driving market-leading innovation and value not only for our entire network of partners, but also for consumers.”

Goldman Sachs-backed Even Financial, a digital matchmaker between banks and customers, just bought an insurance startup as life insurers are seeing policy applications boom

Even Financial has acquired LeapLife, a leading insurtech platform. The addition of LeapLife allows Even to immediately commence its insurance capabilities, aimed at simplifying and enhancing the way consumers search, compare, and get matched with insurance policies (LeapLife’s existing platform will continue to operate from leaplife.com). Business Insider wrote an article about it, interviewing our CEO and Founder Phill Rosen.

Even Financial Launches Insurance Offerings With Strategic Acquisition of LeapLife, a Leading Insurtech Platform

Pioneering B2B Fintech Expands its Industry-Leading Financial Services Monetization Platform to Help Insurance Carriers Find and Connect with Consumers New York, New York – April 22, 2020 – Even Financial (Even), the leading API for financial services search, acquisition, and monetization, announced today that it will be launching services for the insurance industry through the acquisition of LeapLife, an insurtech platform and digital life insurance agency.  The addition of LeapLife allows Even to immediately commence its insurance capabilities, aimed at simplifying and enhancing the way consumers search, compare, and get matched with insurance policies (LeapLife’s existing platform will continue to operate from leaplife.com). Even and LeapLife now offer the only full end-to-end, multi-carrier digital life insurance marketplace experience. Over the coming weeks, Even will further integrate LeapLife’s technology and insurance offering into its industry-leading API, making turnkey insurance marketplaces programmatically available to a vast network of channel partners — when and where their consumers are most in need — while also enabling the company to expand to other insurance sectors, including homeowners, renters and auto insurance. This adds to Even’s peerless breadth of real-time, personalized financial product offers — an expansive suite that already includes loans, savings, credit cards, and more.  “Even’s goal to evolve how financial institutions find and connect with consumers is not limited to loans or credit cards, but applicable to all financial products and services, including insurance,” said Phill Rosen, Even Founder and CEO. “Despite its importance, purchasing life insurance is often an overwhelming and inconvenient experience. With more than $600 billion in premiums paid each year, and only 6% of policies sold completely online, we see tremendous opportunities to help modernize the life insurance industry and offer solutions that solve challenges for consumers and carriers alike.”  LeapLife is an established insurtech platform and digital life insurance agency that utilizes data science, deep underwriting knowledge, and proprietary technology, enabling consumers to apply for instant-decision life insurance policies with real-time quotes. LeapLife works with many best-in-class insurance carriers to offer consumers a seamless experience from beginning to end. This approach made Even and Leaplife a perfect match. As a digital insurance broker, LeapLife offers personalized life insurance recommendations based on a consumer’s unique needs. Paired with the Even API, which enables customer acquisition for insurance to be native and programmatic, consumers benefit from a more streamlined, transparent, and highly personalized experience when shopping for life insurance.  Just as Even’s 2018 acquisition of Birch (the award-winning credit card rewards app) allowed the company to accelerate its expansion into credit cards, the addition of LeapLife will similarly put Even at the forefront of consumer insurance offerings.  Charles Svirk of MassMutual Ventures, an investor in Even, said “The Even and LeapLife teams share a vision that the future of insurance acquisition will rely on the power of data-driven, programmatic distribution. We are thrilled to support them as their industry experience, impressive technology, and trusted relationships will help scale Even’s insurance offering and build partnerships to provide these critical innovations in insurance acquisition.” The Even API and platform solve significant, long-standing pain points in financial services acquisition by seamlessly connecting supply and demand. Even has continued its rapid growth trajectory in 2020, surpassing over $1.5 billion in credit issued through its API and expanding its platform to over 400 partners. Even has secured over $55 million in funding from major financial institutions, venture capital firms, and fintechs to back its goal to evolve the financial services acquisition ecosystem.   About Even Financial Founded in 2015, Even Financial is a B2B fintech company that is transforming the way financial institutions find and connect with consumers.
