An Insider's view of Clearcover

What's something quirky about your company?

It’s surprising how much we all grow to love discussing insurance. Everyone is genuinely interested in how the industry works and sharing knowledge. I think we feel we owe it to our customers to understand how insurance works, so they don’t have to. We’ve likely all thought at one point, “Wow, I never thought I’d care about insurance this much.”
