QuickQuote.com is Selected “Forbes Favorite” as its “Best of the Best” for Life Insurance Web Sites

August 9, 2000

The following press release includes information about content, features, products, partnerships or other company news pertaining to QuickQuote Financial, Inc. or the QuickQuote.com Web site as of the date of the press release. Such information may or may not be currently applicable to QuickQuote Financial, Inc. or the QuickQuote.com Web site.


Reno, NV – The Internet’s original insurance marketplace, QuickQuote.com, has been selected by Forbes.com’s “Best of The Web” Issue (Fall 2000 Edition) as its “Forbes Favorite” life insurance Web site.

Forbes indicated the “best” thing about QuickQuote.com was that “QuickQuote takes the extra steps to see your application through the entire underwriting process.” The review also states “unlike some sites, QuickQuote has licensed life insurance agents available during business hours.”

“We’re extremely pleased with Forbes assessment of the online insurance industry and QuickQuote’s leadership role in that category,” said Daniel P. Wager, President and Founder of QuickQuote.com. “Since we pioneered insurance distribution on the Internet in 1995, we’ve taken a consumer-oriented, educational approach in developing both our Web site and our off-line customer support team.”

Forbes “Best of The Web” Review also states “QuickQuote stands apart from other mundane insurance sites because it has flashy, moving graphics and a streaming-audio greeting. Its fast and simple application process offers a good selection of instant quotes from better-rated carriers”

According to a press release distributed by Forbes about the selection process, “Using the Internet can be either extremely productive or a complete waste of time. Forbes helps its readers bridge that gap with Forbes.com’s Best of The Web fall edition. Best of The Web’s staff surfed thousands of Web sites in search of the “best of the best.” The result is a comprehensive list of 300 superior Web sites in 45 categories from brokers to corporate training. To further narrow the field, Forbes has identified a Forbes Favorite Web site in each category.” QuickQuote.com is among those 45 “favorites”. (The listings are also located on the Forbes.com Web site at www.forbesbest.com.)

In addition to this latest distinction, QuickQuote.com, previously has been rated #1 by SmartMoney for “Customer Service” and Website Resources” as well as one of the Top 5 Insurance Websites by Gomez Advisors. The site offers term life insurance, individual health insurance, fixed annuities, travel health insurance, international health insurance and universal life as well as an auto insurance center and a mortgage center.

QuickQuote Financial Inc., and its parent company, QuickQuote Systems, Inc., are part of the international financial services institution, ING Group, of Dutch origin, which is active in the fields of banking, insurance and asset management in more than 65 countries.
