Founded in 2016 by serial entrepreneur Gary Burke, EGV is a managing underwriter (MGU) specialising in UK mid-market commercial insurance. Its well-recognised and highly experienced executive team have created an exciting and unique offering akin to a virtual insurer which has quickly gained traction in the market and is regularly writing policies in excess of £50,000.

Magenta were introduced to EGV in early 2017 and, having worked with Gary Burke previously, decided to track the business for a number of months until it reached a point where it was suitable for Magenta to invest.
