UK-based fintech Stubben Edge Group has announced the launch of its capital arm, Stubben Edge Capital.

In a Press release, Stubben Edge said the goal will be to drive sector-wide innovation while providing financial tools and services to support established and emerging ventures in the UK.

The announcement also outlined the following key pillars of Stubben Edge Capital’s operations:

  • developing and sustaining the insurance underwriting balance sheet capacity of intermediaries through easy access to permanent capital;
  • providing a wide range of wealth management solutions through a partner independent financial adviser network; and
  • offering ancillary services such as investment management, capital management, corporate finance, and funding.

“Stubben Edge Capital presents an exciting opportunity for the sector,” said Chris Kenning, CEO of Stubben Edge Group. “We are committed to helping insurance brokers, MGAs, and insurers grow their businesses. We provide them with the technology, data, analytics, regulatory licensing, and now capital solutions.

“Our AUM (assets under management) business has grown from a standing start in 2021 to £400 million and is on track to get to £2 billion of AUM by end of 2023. As a leading fintech, we are looking to provide equity, debt, and reinsurance solutions to our partners.”

In line with the launch, newly appointed chief investment officer Frédéric Morlaye presented the latest Stubben Edge Capital strategy to a group of investors at the UK Investor Show (UKIS) held in London last week.

Morlaye has over two decades of experience across financial markets. He has advised senior management teams across Europe on strategy and complex asset and liability management issues. He also served as managing director at BNP Paribas Global Markets and held a professorship at Sciences Po Paris and the ESCP Graduate School of Business.

Earlier this year, Stubben Edge successfully raised £5.6 million in an oversubscribed funding round that involved both existing and new shareholders.
