More about Star Ratings

Defaqto’s vision is to help people make better financial decisions. Star Ratings are a key element of how we achieve this, by providing an independent, unbiased mechanism for helping people instantly understand where a proposition sits in the market, based on the features and benefits it offers.

We have been producing Star Ratings since 2000. Our Star Ratings now cover over 90 separate areas within general insurance, wealth management, life and protection, and banking.

Defaqto Star Ratings allow consumers and advisers to see the quality of products and policies at a glance. We rate every product on the market, on a scale of 1 to 5 stars. A 1 Star product covers the basics, whereas a 5 Star product is one of the most comprehensive on the market.

We apply a transparent, stringent and consistent methodology to ensure that Star Ratings remain reflective of industry, market and user trends and developments - and thereby fulfil the Star Ratings promise.
