Shaun Quincey, co-founder and CEO of Simfuni, is a self-proclaimed “payments geek” who has dedicated his career to building elegant payment experiences. His initial experience in payments led him to start a successful buy now, pay later business, which was later sold to Latitude in 2019.

Driven by a desire to continue to innovate in the payment space, Quincey co-founded Simfuni, aiming to revolutionize the payment experience in the insurance industry. Simfuni’s goal is to digitize payment processes, making them more efficient and user-friendly for both consumers and internal stakeholders. This involves understanding customers’ payment preferences, offering flexible payment options, and integrating payment systems with industry-specific software to improve the overall experience.

Simfuni’s vision extends beyond mere transaction processing. Simfuni views payment systems as crucial enablers of service consumption, striving for frictionless and elegant experiences. Simfuni aims to transform the insurance payment experience, making it intuitive and satisfying for the modern consumer, while also serving as a channel for insurance sellers to engage with customers, enhancing their understanding of policies and payment options.
