Uinsure launch 5-star Defaqto product

Defaqto is an independent financial research and software company specialising in rating, comparing and analysing financial products and funds.

The general insurance provider’s 5-star product includes £1m buildings cover if you need to rebuild your home, £50,000 contents cover as standard, new for old cover on replaced contents and a one year guarantee on home repairs carried out by insurer-appointed builders.

Simon Taylor, chief executive of Uinsure, said: “Since we started Uinsure in 2007 we have strived to offer high quality products that give customers exactly what they need and, as a result, are easy for brokers to sell.

“One way of doing that has been to conduct regular surveys of our brokers in order to find out what is most important to them in terms of home insurance products.

“We have taken on board every bit of feedback we have received and I am delighted that the product we have been able to create as a result of that has now been recognised as one of the best on the market by Defaqto.”

Uinsure will pay to trace the source of a leak, while cover can be tailored by adding optional extras such as accidental damage and cover away from the home.

Mike Powell, insight analyst for general insurance at Defaqto, said: “When insuring their home it is essential that people match the features and benefits they require with those offered by the product they choose.

“If consumers focus on price alone they can run the risk of buying an inappropriate product that doesn’t meet their needs and they are only likely to discover this when they need to make a claim.

“5 Star rated products, such as the one offered by Uinsure are among the best quality propositions on the market.”
