“Customer care is at the core of everything we do at Hippo, from eliminating process inefficiencies and outdated policy provisions through a user-friendly digital platform and modern product, to incentivizing our licensed sales team against positive customer reviews.

“This is about cutting the fat and creating insurance products that are not only more valuable, but less expensive. We pass savings onto the customer in the form of lower premiums, by leveraging a modernized infrastructure which also reduces risk and regularly save clients up to 25% on home insurance,” said Assaf Wand, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Hippo.

In a recent move, Hippo teamed up with Comcast to help residential clients save on their annual home insurance and enhance protection beyond what traditional home insurance policies offer, by leveraging integrated IOT home safety devices.
