Spectrum.Life said it currently covers 7.2m individuals in Ireland and the UK across multiple insurers, including Laya Healthcare, as well as 3,000 corporate clients and 50 UK universities.

The company, which expects revenue to exceed €25m this year, will also seek continue its rapid expansion in the UK, where it has grown 200% over the past 12 months. It will also add 100 jobs over the next 18 months to accelerate growth.

Half of Spectrum.Life revenues are now derived from the UK market, and the firm is now profitable and looking to push into additional international markets with the funding.

Revenues are currently on track to top €100m by 2028, according to founder Stuart McGoldrick.

“With this fresh investment we can now deliver upon our ambitious plans to be the market leader in digitally delivered healthcare,” said McGoldrick.

Established in 2018, Spectrum.Life saw revenue growth of 60% last year and expects turnover to increase by more than 50% this year, with three-quarters of new business coming from outside Ireland.

Since its launch in the UK market in 2020, the company has built a client base of insurers, corporate and university clients and over 50% of revenue in 2024 will be in the UK market. 

Spectrum.Life employs over 260 people, including 125 clinicians.

“We are building our company in a sustainable way and continued profitability is a core focus. We are thrilled to have the support of our investors and funders as we continue to grow,” said McGoldrick.
