We are passionate about enabling digital insurance distribution in a sustainable, reliable and compliant way that provides maximum benefit to our partners and clients.
Founded in 2016 as the enabler of the Briisk Instant Transaction Platform in South Africa, SureStart Online Financial Services has established itself as a leading and innovative digital broker in the local market.
With experience in solutions architecture, product design, compliance risk management, API Integration, high-volume claims handling and digital marketing, SureStart distributes innovative insurance solutions that cover tens of thousands of people and items on a monthly basis with products like:
- (API) Goods In Transit Insurance
- (API) Unspecified All Risk and Home Contents
- (API) Collision Damage Waiver
- (API) Ticket Cancellation
- (Whitelabel) TravelSafe Leisure Travel Insurance
- (Whitelabel) Drone Covered Drone Insurance
- (Whitelabel) Eyethu Funeral Cover
- (Whitelabel) Wedding Cancellation Insurance
- More in progress
The strategic acquisition of insurance comparison website, CompareGuru, in 2019 further strengthened the digital footprint of the business. CompareGuru predominantly focuses on Motor and Household Insurance but is being expanded to become a fully click-to-buy insurance marketplace.
We are always looking for new channels to distribute niche insurance products through - specifically low premium, very high volume e-commerce stores and platform businesses. We are also continuously expanding our affiliate networks for our whitelabels.
