South Africa-based comparison website Click n Compare has expanded to Nigeria and Kenya. This comes after achieving strong month-on-month growth of 40% in its home country. It’s also expanding its advisory board with impressive additions from Nigeria-based iROKO and Ringier.
Click n Compare is an online platform that lists various services, such as insurance, mobile, broadband and banking. Customers can easily navigate and compare different plans and prices that suit their specific needs.
The co-founder and CEO of the company, Ryan Marx, added in a press release:
Click n Compare’s unique value proposition is the fact that we have positioned ourselves directly between the consumer and provider in a way that is mutually beneficial to both parties. We are well on our way to achieving this aim by building relationships with major key players in the insurance industry.
The tech startup is very confident in its expansion plans, pointing out that Nigeria’s Insured.ng has been successfully acquired.
Former Rocket Internet employee Tim Burkly is leading the expansion. He noted: “I am both honoured and excited to work alongside Ryan, Manuel and the Click n Compare team, as we continue to build our brand into Africa’s leading financial marketplace.”
Co-founder of iROKO Bastian Gotter and West Africa’s general manager of Ringier Leonard Stiegeler join Click n Compare Group’s advisory board.
Based on its strong growth in South Africa, Gotter believes the company has a bright future in the rest of Africa:
Click n Compare have made considerable advances in the online price comparison market in South Africa. With their proven track record, and their expertise in the sector, we very much hope they can take Insured.ng onto its next phase as a leading Nigerian insurance-comparison platform.
