GoBear lets Filipinos easily compare financial products such as insurance, credit cards, and loans right from their computers or mobile phones. GoBear is Asia’s first and only meta-search engine for insurance and banking services. The company takes pride in its unbiased, simple, and transparent way of offering consumers the best deals. The GoBear website neither sells nor promotes any particular product; it simply compares and allows users to choose what best suits their needs. GoBear is FREE.

GoBear is premised on the idea that choosing complex financial and insurance products should be as easy and as honest as possible. The service turns the tables on the misconception that getting financial services means going through long processes and incurring unnecessary expenses. Add to that the numerous products available, different terms, and application requirements that can be confusing and intimidating. GoBear simplifies this and makes the experience painless.

“What users need is a tool that will help them weigh options in a completely transparent, quick, and understandable way,” says GoBear CEO and Founder Andre Hesselink. “We, at GoBear, hope that the brand can be an enabler towards increased financial literacy and responsibility,” he adds.

GoBear can help users save on average more than 20% on their premiums. Its unique Coverage Score algorithm provides users with a clear indication of a financial product’s benefits. When stacked against the product’s premium, a user can make a more informed and cost-effective choice based on his or her personal needs.
