What is Defaqto?

Founded in 1994, Defaqto is an independent financial information business, helping financial institutions, financial advisers and consumers make better informed decisions.

What are Defaqto Star Ratings?

Defaqto's team of experts select the most important features and benefits for an insurance product, and then use them to score all the products in the market. By totalling the scores, each product is assigned a Star Rating on a scale from 1 to 5.

This gives you a simple and trustworthy way to gauge the quality of a product's features and benefits, rather than on price alone.

Cheaper policies often exclude key elements of cover, which could leave you exposed when it comes to making a claim. Hence Star Ratings can help you to compare the level of cover, and only the most comprehensive policies get 5 Stars.

You can read more about Star Ratings on the Defaqto website.
