London, 8 February 2021 – The UK’s fastest-growing pet insurance provider, Bought By Many, has appointed Brands2Life as its retained communications agency to support its next phase of growth.
Brands2Life’s brief is to boost awareness among consumers, investors and the wider insurance market of Bought By Many’s mission to be a global leader in insurance. The wide-ranging remit includes brand strategy, integrated campaigns supporting commercial peaks, corporate profiling, influencer engagement, event and sponsorship activation and proactive press office.
The appointment comes after Bought By Many secured an additional £78.4 million in Growth Equity Funding in May last year and successful international expansion into Sweden. The company launched in the pet insurance market in 2017 and was the first UK provider to offer online claims processing.
