Complexity that the Belt, the latest marketplace digital insurance in the national market, it intends to simplify, breaking with the traditional concept, but without neglecting what everyone is looking for in the service: help, care and protection.
The project has just been launched by Clever Advertising, one of the biggest specialists in digital marketing in the world, under the leadership of Leandro Almeida and Manuel Brandão, who sought to guarantee the proximity and trust of a conventional mediator, adding the factors of transparency, innovation, technology and informality.
“We set up the mediator of modern times, which offers a differentiating proximity and simplicity to the customer. At Belt, we’re more purposeful and less bullshit. We are guided by the expectations and needs of our customers and our focus will always be on delivering quality information, so that they understand the different coverage options on the market and make an informed purchase decision.”, explains Manuel Brandão, co-founder from the platform.
Belt allows customers to access an online platform and take out insurance of all branches and different insurers, just a click away, at any time and from any device. It is intended, according to the founders, for those who prefer the efficiency and comfort of digital.
“In general, people believe that e-commerce and marketplaces are important tools for reducing product prices. However, the success stories are those that give customers access to more products and adequate information for a correct purchase decision. It is interesting to note that when a customer is exposed to a good product comparison, he rarely chooses the product with the lowest added value”, points out Leandro Almeida, who has led the company since September last year.
“In this sense, Belt innovates by providing insurance education in its sales process. Our preliminary results prove that customers, when well informed, look for quality products with coverage tailored to their needs. Price becomes a secondary factor”, adds the person in charge.

In addition to these guarantees, Belt ensures a quick and simple process. In the coming months, the brand will add to its range of offers the home insurance, petshealth, urban mobility and life.
The founders aim for Belt to become the largest marketplace insurance in Portugal and internationalize to markets in which Clever Advertising already has a strong presence, namely Brazil and Spain, among others.
