Digital insurance platform RenewBuy.com Tuesday said it has raised Rs 130 crore (USD 19 million) in a funding round led by Lok Capital and IIFL AMC.

The investment will enable the company to increase its footprint to 1,000 cities, augment product portfolio, and insure 10 million customers by 2022, a company release said.

"It will also accelerate our entry into newer geographies and augment our product portfolio to meet India''s immense unmet insurance demand.
