GoBear Expands Pawprints in Asia With Vietnam Launchby Fintechnews Singapore December 8, 2016
GoBear, Asia’s comprehensive and transparent metasearch engine for insurance and banking products is now available in Vietnam. Vietnam is the 6th market in Asia for GoBear to offer financial product comparison that is online, easy to use, unbiased, personalised and free of charge.
GoBear Vietnam will first launch two products, credit card and personal loan comparisons in Vietnamese. These services will empower consumers, allowing them to conveniently compare across nearly 200 credit cards and 30 name lending facilities from a variety of 50 existing banks and finance companies in the market. Plans for more products such as life insurance, are in the pipeline.
“GoBear is excited to offer our products in Vietnam as we see an immense opportunity for growth here. Vietnam is an emerging market with a huge potential in the banking and insurance sectors, as well as the booming e-commerce space. We are confident that this new way of searching for financial products will help Vietnamese users make a more informed decision,” says Mr. Andre Hesselink, GoBear founder and Chief Executive Officer.
As one of the fastest growing fintech startups in Asia, GoBear is leading the way in simplifying financial shopping experience which consumers most often find to be complicated and jargon-heavy.
First launched in Singapore in 2015, GoBear has since extended its pawprints to other major Asian countries including Thailand, Malaysia, the Philippines, Hong Kong, and now Vietnam. Less than two years into operation, more than 4.5 million users have put their trust in GoBear when it comes to comparing insurance and banking products such as credit cards and personal loans.
Mr.Tran Nhat Khanh, GoBear Vietnam Country Director, says: “GoBear does not sell products directly but offers consumers a free, easy and transparent comparison experience based on personalised needs. GoBear is not influenced by service providers’ advertising and therefore, is able at all times to maintain impartiality and help users save time and money.”
