We’re always coming up with ways to provide more value
and make it easier for our clients to get protected.
Melbourne, Victoria (PRWEB) April 20, 2012
Moving forward and moving fast, online life insurance comparison company miPlan is quickly becoming a major player in the Australian Direct Life Insurance market. The announcement of their partnership with life insurance provider TAL, demonstrates miPlan’s commitment to providing its customers high quality life insurance at an affordable price.
A study conducted in 2010 found that Australians are among the most under-insured people in the developed world. According to the report published by the National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling (NATSEM), 95% of Australian families don’t have adequate personal insurance, despite the fact 1 in 5 will experience unexpected death, accident or illness of a parent. Unfortunately these trends have gotten worse in recent years, opening the door for young companies like miPlan to not only enter the market, but advance very quickly.
miPlan’s rapid growth and success can be traced back to its CEO and Founder, Stephen Handley. After a successful career at software giant Microsoft, Stephen returned to Australia and spent a number of years managing his family’s financial planning business. Armed with the invaluable skills he developed in these roles, Stephen decided to make the transition to entrepreneur and has done so with great success.
When asked about the genesis of the idea, Stephen says that miPlan’s creation was inevitable given his background. “In a former life I completed a Master’s degree in Music Engineering, which is a pretty good indication I like to solve problems creatively. As a Financial Adviser it has become increasingly obvious to me that clients with simpler needs are slipping through the cracks. The Financial Services establishment has not figured out how to provide quality service at a price point that works for the majority of the population. Given Australia’s woeful track record when it comes to Life Insurance, this is a major issue. Thankfully it has also presented a massive opportunity. Leveraging the power of the internet, miPlan delivers my specialist Life Insurance knowledge to customers as cost effectively as possible. miPlan customers can obtain quality, affordable Life Insurance products quickly and easily with the comfort of knowing that they’ll have expert representation if they ever need to make a claim.”
Stephen went on to say he is already developing a number of enhancements to increase the value for miPlan’s customers even further. ”We’re always coming up with ways to provide more value and make it easier for our clients to get protected. Over the coming months, we’ll increase both the range and number of products, give our clients more ways to get help, and improve the way we demonstrate the positive impact Personal Insurance has on individuals, their families and the community.”
