Financial Services


BankBazaar is the world’s first neutral online marketplace which gives consumers access to customized rate quotes on loans, credit cards and personal finance products such as insurance policies. In 2008, with an initial capital of Rs. 45 lakh, BankBazaar.com was started with a team of 6 people in Chennai. The name was chosen as it signifies a choice and comparison of banks. The founders Adhil Shetty, Arjun Shetty and Rati are a group of entrepreneurs who had worked in companies like Deloitte, Amazon.com, Capital One and Microsoft. From then till now, BankBazaar.com has gained a most admirable position in India.


At Coverfox, buying insurance is not just about avoiding risk, it’s about outfoxing the confusion lying within. With 25 insurers and 100+ products to choose from, Coverfox works actively to find a plan that is ideal for customers. From providing them with the right information to offering unbiased comparisons, Coverfox is a one stop solution for all financial concerns. Coverfox was cofounded by Varun Dua and Devendra Rane, who had experienced issues in real life with respect to financial products and decided to come together to create an online solution. And once the Narayana Murthy led Catmaran Ventures invested in them, the company entered the big league.


Paytm finds its second mention in this listing, due to its original claim to fame, in other words, due to the fact that in the listings of e-commerce companies recognised and admired in the financial sector, Paytm is considered amongst the leaders. The first mention of Paytm in this listing occurs a couple of pages earlier, in the listing of e-commerce companies recognised for their significant contributions in the e-tailing space. Without doubt, to be considered in one category itself is commendable, and to be considered in two, is a mark of ubiquity.
