GoBear is Asia’s first and only metasearch engine in insurance and financial products. It was founded on the simple premise that a consumer should find freedom and ease in choosing complex financial products like insurance, credit cards and loans. Headquartered in Singapore since early 2015, GoBear has established a presence in Thailand, Malaysia and the Philippines. GoBear Hong Kong and Vietnam will launch in fall 2016.

In its first year of operations, over 2 million users used GoBear for quicker and more personalized comparisons. As one of the fastest growing fintech startups in Asia, GoBear is leading the way in democratizing financial shopping experience with its unbiased and personalized comparison process. GoBear’s user-oriented platform neither aggregates nor sells products. GoBear simply offers consumers a free and transparent comparison process based on their financial needs, and not influenced by service providers’ advertising. The result is a user-friendly and informed experience that saves consumers both time and money.

The unique and powerful proposition of GoBear is our unbiased metasearch nature. This search experience has given users unprecedented transparency in financial products comparison, which is new to Asia. GoBear has placed the decision power into the consumer’s hands – letting their life planning needs shape the future of the insurance and financial industry.

Q: How does GoBear work?

For personal loans

When getting a loan, transparency about costs and repayments is often lacking. To provide you with a better overview, we have broken down all the costs that are associated with your loan.

For insurance

We compare relevant insurance plans of insurers on our site to find the best deal. When you have found the right deal for you, we connect you to the particular insurer directly. And only when you click on an insurance plan do we get a small referral fee from the insurer, not from you. Remember you do not buy the insurance from us. We only compare!

For credit cards

Our goal is simple: to show you the most transparent and unbiased comparison that suits your needs, not anyone else’s.

Q: Where can I find GoBear?

GoBear is currently available in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines.
