Why we started
Hala Insurance

We believe in an alternative to the insurance of yesterday. For too long, insurance has been confusing, purposefully complex and inconvenient. We've built Hala because we want to outsource people's worries, and what better way to do that than through insurance that is actually there for you when you need it?

Insurance experts who
actually care

Our experts bring decades of insurance and technology experience to Hala. They've worked at companies such as Zurich Insurance, Mubadala, Careem and SWVL. Our co-founders have a track record of success, having sold their first Insurtech company prior to starting Hala. Hala's board members have led startups like Monday.com from pre-seed to its multi-billion dollar IPO.

It's safe to say you're in good hands.
