CMS advises Spearhead on investment by DEKRA

In the course of a financing round of Spearhead AG, international expert organization DEKRA has invested in the company.

Spearhead serves insurance companies, vehicle fleets, and fleet operators with systems for 100% digital processing of vehicle damages. Spearhead’s business model focuses on digital processes for claims settlement, from the damage report to final claim regulation. A critical component is a telematics solution, which 100% automatically creates a first notification of loss by Spearhead after an accident and makes it available to customers.

DEKRA has been active in the field of safety for almost 100 years. Founded in 1925 in Berlin as Deutscher Kraftfahrzeug-Überwachungs-Verein e.V., it is today one of the world’s leading expert organizations. DEKRA SE is a subsidiary of DEKRA e.V. and manages the Group’s operating business. In 2020, DEKRA generated turnover totalling almost EUR 3.2 billion. The company currently employs around 44,000 people in approximately 60 countries on all continents. With qualified and independent expert services, they work for safety on the road, at work and at home. These services range from vehicle inspection and expert appraisals to claims services, industrial and building inspections, safety consultancy, testing and certification of products and systems, as well as training courses and temporary work. The vision for the company’s 100th birthday in 2025 is that DEKRA will be the global partner for a safe, secure, and sustainable world. With a platinum rating from EcoVadis, DEKRA is now in the top one percent of sustainable businesses ranked.
