Hello, we’re Anorak

An independent online broker for life insurance, income protection and critical illness cover

We exist to make it easy for people to protect their families financially

Most people don’t know much about life insurance, income protection and critical illness cover. They know they should have a plan in place in case they die or become too ill to work – but aren’t sure where to start. And even if they do, they find a process that’s complicated, time-consuming and full of jargon. It’s no wonder they put it off.
We’re here to change this. We’ve built a simple, convenient, user-friendly way to get expert advice and buy cover online. As a broker, we help people understand their financial liabilities, give tailored advice, and guide them through the process of getting the right cover in place.

What makes us different?

We help people learn

We help people learn

We think it’s important to understand how the different insurance products work and what your needs are before you buy, so we make sure people do – with online guides, tailored advice, and a team of advisers available to help at any point.
We give expert advice online

We give expert advice online

We believe everyone should have easy access to tailored advice – not just the wealthy few. It helps people make truly informed decisions when buying cover. We provide this for everyone, online. It’s instant, unbiased and jargon-free.
We focus on the right cover

We focus on the ‘right’ cover

We only ever recommend as much cover as people need (no more, no less) – and make sure they don’t pay more than they need to. We want everyone to walk away with the right cover in place for their needs, profile and budget.

The Anoraks making it happen

We’re a team of tech, design and insurance experts – all slightly obsessed ‘anoraks’ – building a new way to buy life insurance. Our mission is to make financial advice accessible to everyone and cover easier to buy. Together, we’re empowering people to make informed decisions and feel confident that if the worst happens, they and their families will be looked after.
