However, when it comes to the most important purchase of all, that doesn’t apply. There’s one purchase that protects all that families have worked for over a lifetime. Insurance. Surprisingly, advertisements for insurance focus almost entirely on price.

Advertising Budgets Indicate Only Price Matters
In 2019 the three largest car insurance companies – State Farm, GEICO and Progressive – spent nearly $4.8 billion on advertisements. Much of this money was spent telling consumers price is the only point that matters when buying insurance. These massive advertising budgets rarely mention product quality. And never offer a proof point substantiating product quality.
How did we get so far offtrack? Here’s how. A lack of transparency in the insurance industry. When lacking reliable, easily understood information, consumers fall back to what they understand well. Dollars and cents.

Following a financial recovery that took longer than the physical recovery, I vowed to bring transparency to insurance. That began as a mission to identify the companies that performed best when paying claims.
