Working at ActiveQuote Limited

What we do

Who we are is the UK’s leading comparison website and broker of health and protection insurance products, including health insurance, income protection, life insurance and critical illness cover.

Based in vibrant Cardiff Bay and fully authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), we’re an independent insurance broker, which means we’re unbiased and able to compare products from a range of leading insurers. We deal directly with each insurance company to bring the best prices available to our customers and enable our team of specialist consultants to help you find the best policy for your own particular circumstances. This means we can often identify ways to reduce premiums without compromising the level of cover offered.

Our History

ActiveQuote was founded in 2009 by technology entrepreneur Dr Richard Theo, who had a vision for an online health insurance comparison service. Many people within the industry said it wasn’t possible or commercially viable but, thanks to Dr Theo’s determination and drive, was launched - and succeeded!

Our groundbreaking health insurance comparison website now allows customers to tailor-make policies by adding or removing options such as dental insurance and hospital cover and selecting an excess you could afford to pay. We’re proud to say we created the world’s first column-based insurance comparison service, providing all details for each product rather than driving customers towards the cheapest first - which, we’re sure you’ll agree, would be highly inappropriate when it comes to something as important as health insurance.

What we believe

We’re as committed to our ethics today as the day we launched and see them as the cornerstone of everything we do. Our approach to the comparison and sale of insurance products never involves ‘hard sell’ tactics and we won’t recommend a product unless it is in the best interests of our customer.
