Google may bring auto insurance shopping service to US, from CNET.
An entity called Google Compare Auto Insurance Services is now licensed to do business in more than half the US, an analyst finds.
Google may finally be ready to launch its auto insurance comparison shopping service in the US, according to an industry analyst.
A review of state insurance commission filings by Forrester Research analyst Ellen Carney discovered that an entity doing business under the name Google Compare Auto Insurance Services is licensed to do business in more than half the US, according to a Carney blog post. The company is also authorized to transact business with half a dozen insurance providers, including MetLife, Mercury and Workmen’s Auto Insurance.
Carney also notes that a corporate treasurer at Google named Meredith Stechbart, who doesn’t appear to have any insurance industry experience, is licensed to sell insurance through Google Compare as well as auto insurance comparison site CoverHound.
