insuranceQuotes is an online service connecting insurance shoppers with carriers by providing insurance quotes to shoppers and leads to insurance agents. The company is headquartered in Austin, Texas and was founded on March 31, 2010.[2][3][4][5][6][7]

History[edit | edit source]

insuranceQuotes’ parent company, Bankrate, Inc., Inc.,[8] was founded in 1976 as a print publisher of the "Bank Rate Monitor". In 1996, the company began moving its business online.[9] After spending 10 years as a public company traded on the NASDAQ, Bankrate, Inc. was acquired in 2009 by Apax Partners in a transaction valued at approximately $571 million.[10] In 2011, Bankrate, Inc. went public again and remains publicly traded.

In 2008 Bankrate,Inc. acquired InsureMe, an online service connecting insurance shoppers with providers. Over the following 4 years, Bankrate, Inc. continued to grow in the insurance industry, acquiring additional complementary companies including netQuote, Trouvé Media, Lead Karma, and InsWeb/AgentInsider. In March, 2015, Bankrate, Inc. combined their insurance brands into insuranceQuotes as a flagship insurance shopping company.[11]

In November 2015, Bankrate reached a deal to sell insuranceQuotes to All Web Leads, Inc., a portfolio company of Genstar Capital. The transaction is expected to close by December 31, 2015, pending certain closing conditions.[12]
