Consumer choice is good. In fact, it’s great. Because we all appreciate choice, and we always want the best deals. But too much choice can also be a challenge. Especially when it comes to financial products and credit cards. Well, what if I told you there’s a friend you can count on for unbiased information and comparison? Say hello to GoBear – the most comprehensive metasearch comparison site, now in Malaysia.
The great thing about GoBear is that it doesn’t sell you anything. It’s a slick, website that simply delivers unbiased search results to match your needs and preferences. It currently lists over 1,000 financial products on its website, and this will expand even more in the months to come.
Established in Singapore, it has since opened its doors in Thailand, and now Malaysia. Impressively it recorded 50% month-on-month growth in usage, with over 1.2 million users since it was introduced in Singapore and Thailand. It is quickly expanding its foothold in Southeast Asia with planned operations in The Philippines, Hong Kong, Vietnam and Indonesia.
According to Iskandar Ezzahuddin, GoBear’s country director Malaysia, said that today’s insurance buyers are mobile-first, multi-screen and social media savvy. This is the basis of the GoBear platform – to increase emphasis on simplicity in search, with its powerful metasearch engine.
So far, GoBear features travel insurance and credit cards and says it will expand into the car insurance and personal loan categories in the third quarter of this year. It makes choosing complex financial products easier, without you being stuffed with technical jargon you don’t understand, and pages of terms and conditions.
Andre Hesselink, chief executive officer of GoBear said, “GoBear is a global brand in the making and we are very focused on being local to serve customers in each of our key markets in the best way.”
GoBear strips its bare for the consumer, and aspire to be the ‘Trip Advisor’ for Finance.
It doesn’t have a mobile app at the moment, but the website is mobile-optimised.
