Our lawyers Lee Bagshaw and Chris Wilson advised Prenetics (a Hong Kong based startup making DNA testing products) on its USD40million investment round, led by Alibaba and Beyond Ventures amongst others. Prenetics had previously raised money from Ping An, China’s largest insurer.

Prenetics partners with insurance companies to provide DNA testing to policyholders. It currently operates in Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand, and with this investment, it plans to expand to more countries. To date, Prenetics has processed 200,000 DNA samples.
