Decades ago, the world moved from bank tellers to e-banking. That same self-service shift is now happening in insurance. You can be your own pro, and buy and directly manage your premium digitally.

1. You represent yourself

You have the best knowledge of your personal needs, meaning you’ll be able to make the best decision for yourself when choosing an insurance provider. Most Canadian consumers feel they don’t need specific advice on coverages when choosing an insurance company and they want the freedom to do it themselves. In other more complicated cases, brokers offer specialized expertise.
