Welsh Comparison Website joins the Sunday Times Hiscox Tech Track 100

Published on 08/09/2016

Comparison website and insurance broker wins a place on the league table of Britain’s fastest-growing tech firms.

Sunday Times Hiscox Tech Track 100

ActiveQuote is the only Welsh company to feature in the league table, securing 84th position, a vindication of the vision and commitment of the founders of the business, as well as the 110 staff it now employs.

Managing Director and serial entrepreneur Dr Richard Theo started the business in 2009 using his own money before securing £1m from 16 business angels in 2014. On receiving the news, Richard commented ‘We’re thrilled to feature in the Tech Track 100. This award is firm recognition of the fantastic team of people we have at ActiveQuote, all 110 of us. We’re immensely proud of our Welsh roots, and we remain committed to growing our successful business in Wales.”

Nearly one third of the companies on the league table were founded by serial entrepreneurs, who have started at least one other business. Dr Theo’s enthusiasm and passion has driven him to establish and grow a string of successful technology-based start-up companies, including SoftSwift and Avantis Systems Ltd. Richard’s latest venture, Wealthify, is already enjoying success as a new breed of ‘robo’ investment services, making investment accessible to everyone.

Steve Langan, CEO of Hiscox Insurance Company, commented:

“The Sunday Times Hiscox Tech Track 100 never fails to impress and this year is no different.We are proud to be associated with it, not least as we support more than 40,000 technology companies across the UK and Ireland and see first-hand their tenacity and infectious ambition. Congratulations to all of those listed this year –the growth and innovation they demonstrate is highly commendable.”

I found the quality of service to be very helpful, and pretty much above my expectation. I'd recommend anyone to use ActiveQuote.

A great service from the initial call, to finalising the agreement. I would highly recommend to my family and friends.

Proactive, efficient, and offered me insurance I need. I would say half price I would end up paying if I did it by myself. Many thanks.

Excellent service. Explained everything in detail and really helped to find the right insurance best suited to my needs - which wasn't necessarily the most expensive.

Good value and the advisor was very helpful and recommended the best policy for my grandson. I would definitely use this service again and recommend to others.
