Latest Unister News

The top-class German Internet address Versicherungen.de is now off the market: Synatix, a venture builder from Hamelin, secured one of the last top domains from the estate of the Leipzig Unister group. The parties involved have agreed not to disclose the purchase price. Together with his team, Fabian Simon, founder and managing director of Synatix, wants to turn the domain back into one of the top brands. Even more: the Internet address is a central element of a comprehensive, expansive corporate strategy. “Versicherungen.de completes our fintech package. Financing, investing, insuring – we will soon be able to offer our customers all of this from a single source,” he explains. However, it will be some time before that happens: the official starting shot for the new portal should be in the course of 2025 at the earliest. Synatix uses it again from Unister. The domain Kredit.de also belonged to the former Leipzig group of companies before Synatix secured the rights to it in 2017. For a long time, the coveted address was considered the most valuable domain in Germany and was sold to Unister in 2008 for the then record sum of almost 900,000 euros. The Hameln-based company was one of the established players in the fintech sector even before the purchase of Versicherungen.de. Above all, the well-known financing portal KREDIT.DE is now one of the most frequented contact points for loan seekers from the entire DACH region. The financing broker stands for the combination of professional advice and personal support – regardless of whether it is about an individual construction financing comparison or flexible personal loans. Customers value personal service more and more The expectations of the new project are correspondingly high. With the help of the knowledge gained during the rise of KREDIT.DE, Versicherungen.de should catch up to the top in a hurry. Thanks to which virtues this could succeed, Synatix boss Fabian Simon has a clear idea: “Inexpensive insurance offers can be found on umpteen portals. Of course we have to and will offer them. But that alone is not enough. Today, customers want individual support and comprehensive service, preferably everything directly online.” This development can not only be observed in the finance and insurance sectors. A clear trend is emerging in many industries: More and more customers want individually tailored services and personalized products. Providers who combine comfort and quality score points. Experts also rate this as a reaction to an ever-increasing supply. Because customers today have so many options, can or should make so many decisions that they are sometimes simply overwhelmed. This applies to televisions or sportswear as well as to insurance or mobile phone contracts. In order to make a well-founded purchase decision, more and more preparatory work is necessary. The enormous offer must first be surveyed and then compared. This is difficult without the appropriate prior knowledge. A certain amount of reflection is also part of the process: What functions should my smartphone definitely have? What kind of kitchen suits my lifestyle? Which insurance cover is particularly important to me? A personal expert advisor facilitates the entire process. He knows the market and the products. He knows which questions consumers typically ask, which solutions are popular. Customers are happy to make use of this expertise. On the one hand, individual advice replaces tedious independent research. On the other hand, the professional support gives you the reassuring feeling of being able to choose the right option in every case. If customers find a satisfactory solution in this way, trust in the respective company increases. This interaction also seems to have favored the rise of KREDIT.DE. In any case, the almost exclusively positive reviews that the financial broker receives on independent portals such as Trustpilot convey this impression. The praise usually does not focus on favorable credit conditions, but on the personal commitment of the consultants. It is therefore hardly surprising that Synatix wants to score points with Versicherungen.de with similar virtues. However, it remains to be seen whether this plan will work.
