Financial comparison has now made easier than ever.

GoBear, Asia’s first and only comprehensive and transparent MetaSearch engine for insurance and banking products, is now available in Vietnam.

GoBear Vietnam is the brand’s sixth market in Asia to offer financial product comparison that is online, easy to use, unbiased, personalised and free of charge.

GoBear was first launched in Singapore in 2015, since then it has extended its pawprint to other major Asian countries including Thailand, Malaysia, Philippines, Hong Kong, and now Vietnam.

Not even two years into its operation, more than 4.5 million users have put their trust in GoBear when it comes to comparing insurance and banking products such as credit cards and personal loans.

According to GoBear founder and CEO Andre Hesselink, the search engine was formed on the idea of the need for an online tool to help users search for complex financial products in a transparent and unbiased way.

“The unique and powerful proposition of GoBear is that we provide a transparent overview of the market and with our personalised search and filtering functions, consumers can have a side-by-side comparison easily based on their needs.

“This new way of searching for financial products is new to Asia,” Hesselink noted.

In Vietnam, GoBear provides credit card and personal loan comparisons, comparing nearly 200 credit cards and 30 name lending facilities from a variety of 50 existing banks and finance companies in the market.

“GoBear does not sell directly but instead simply offers a free and transparent comparison experience based on personalised needs, so that it is not influenced by service providers’ advertising and able at all times to maintain impartiality and help users save time and money,” said Tran Nhat Khanh, GoBear Vietnam country director.
