New insurance venture to shakeup online market

New insurance venture to shakeup online market

ClickCover changes the way Kiwis get insurance advice online

A new financial services company, ClickCover Limited, is set to change the way New Zealanders get insurance advice.

The Waikato based company launched its unique online service on September 1, in a move likely to challenge and shake up the standard quote and compare model, which is the only option Kiwis have had in online insurance until now.

“This is not just another quote and compare website.” Said Managing Director and Co-Founder Jamie Toon. “We are offering a unique experience for every day Kiwis to receive quality advice from a Registered Financial Advisor, in the comfort of home and away from the pressure of a broker.

“New Zealand is one of the lowest insured for personal insurance of all OECD countries, so we at ClickCover wanted to create a new platform that made insurance more accessible and easy for everyday Kiwis to use, and to get quality cover.”

“Often for people it’s a guessing game as to how much insurance they need and with over 25,000 different variations within personal risk insurance alone, it’s no wonder it can be hard to choose the right cover for you and your family.” He said.

ClickCover had been just an idea for years, when finally the right software came along that would allow the team to build an online “interview” that could replace a broker’s face-to-face meeting.

It’s a New Zealand first and could potentially be a world first, its founders believe.

Managing Director and Co-Founder, Fraser King said “Early adopters have already said how easy it is to get insurance online with ClickCover. The online “interview” takes the unease out of relaying sensitive personal health and financial information to someone you don’t really know, yet you still have the expertise of a Registered Financial Advisor there to guide you.

ClickCover’s “interview” helps determine which insurance options best suit your needs. A Registered Financial Advisor then finalises a Recommendation explaining the benefits and limitations of each of the options available. You choose what cover you want based on your budget and we’ll help you with the application process. An advisor will also be there to advocate on your behalf at claim time.” He said.

Current insurance advice offered by ClickCover include; Life, Critical Illness, Medical, Income Protection, Mortgage Protection and Travel Insurance. They also offer Professional Indemnity and Liability Insurance. ClickCover aim to continue to add to their existing offerings, and hope to have some new exciting products launched by the end of the year.
