What is Anorak?
Anorak is an independent online broker for life insurance, income protection and critical illness cover. A simple, convenient way to get expert advice and buy cover online.
What is an independent online broker?
As a broker, Anorak helps you understand your financial liabilities, provides tailored advice, and makes sure you get the right cover in place. As an independent online broker, Anorak does all of this online while working for you – not the insurer.
Is Anorak an insurer?
No – Anorak is not an insurer itself. It’s an independent online broker for life insurance, income protection and critical illness cover. This means it provides unbiased advice about your future financial liabilities and your cover needs, then scans the whole market of insurers to recommend the most suitable policies for you.
Is Anorak a price comparison site?
No – Anorak is different to a price comparison website in a couple of ways: first, it uses technology to work out your future financial liabilities, instantly and accurately; second, while it does scan the whole market of insurers for quotes (just like a price comparison site), it only recommends policies that are genuinely suitable for your needs and profile. So you see a tailored selection of suitable policies, rather a long list of everything on the market.

From this, Anorak recommends what sort of cover you should buy to protect against these liabilities, then matches you to the most suitable policies with quotes from the whole market of insurers.
