Bain Capital Insurance’s investment in Enhance Health builds upon the firm’s cross-platform experience building insurance businesses in partnership with high quality management teams. During the past year, the team announced the planned acquisition of LV=, the second largest mutual life insurer in the UK; launched Keystone Agency Partners, a company that acquires and grows U.S. property & casualty insurance agencies; and formed a long-term strategic partnership with Beat Capital Partners, which invests in specialty insurance distribution start-ups.
Based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Enhance Health was founded with a simple premise: empower seniors to get the right care for their specific needs through extensive consumer education and unwavering dedication to consumer service.
