Why is Insurance complicated?  Why is honest advice so rare to find?

We are a community of users & experts here to solve this. 

What is Beshak?

We will curate engaging content, build the right tools, and bring in the right experts to power you - secure your family's financial future, with utmost confidence.

All this, with the Beshak promise of remaining 100% free of conflict and bias. We will never sell or advertise insurance plans or companies on our platform.

Why Beshak?

Insurance customers are in a terrible fix.
Products are complicated >> Customers look for advice >> Customers find it difficult to find credible advice >> Customers delay insurance >> Customers delay critical financial security for themselves and their families.
37% of the people who delayed buying Insurance said they did not trust their insurance advisor. At Beshak.org we want to change this.
We are here to build a community, a ‘trusted space’ where users can empower themselves to make timely, well-informed decisions without worry.

We are fiercely
independent!

FAQs
How do you intend to make money? -

We are working on revenue models that help us stay afloat without compromising on the conflict of selling Insurance. We will soon launch paid products/services that may be of interest to some of you.

Who are you - an agent, broker, aggregator like Policybazaar? +

No. We are not an agent or broker or aggregator. We are a research platform - we are people who want to make decisions with respect to insurance simpler, more transparent for you.

We are not activists either. We would love to play the role of a catalyst, work with all players in the ecosystem who have similar interests.

Are you guys experts? +

We are enthusiasts who love insurance and believe that good insurance products can solve problems for the commonest man.

We don’t claim to be experts. In fact, we think of ourselves as permanent students of insurance; nerds who enjoy reading, analyzing and discussing the fine print behind insurance plans. We are building a dependable medium and source for users seeking conflict-free information on insurance.

How to use information available on Beshak? +

Honestly, this applies to information available anywhere.

  • Acknowledge that information published anywhere is created by a bunch of humans.
  • Always validate the information from a couple of other credible sources, before you decide to act upon it.

All content on the website is purely for information purposes for the public at large and does not constitute personal financial advice for a specific individual reader. We strongly recommend that you take advice from a professional financial advisor before making any decisions.

Can there be errors on Beshak? +

Sometimes. It would be arrogant to believe otherwise. Given the nature of insurance products and the constantly evolving industry there will always be more to learn, than we already know.

Our team is small, but highly committed to deliver only accurate and truthful content to our readers. While we strive to develop resources with a lot of diligence and have them peer reviewed by experts from the industry - we admit that mistakes will still creep in.

Whether these are honest mistakes or things we are outright wrong about, we promise to correct them, and keep you informed through our communication channels as soon as we become aware of them.
