Canstar is a leading research agency and Australia’s biggest financial comparison site, comparing more brands than any other. Founded in 1992, Canstar aims to simplify the world of finance by comparing over 770 brands across more than 30 finance categories including banking, insurance and superannuation. Our team of expert researchers analyse thousands of finance products to develop our Star Ratings and Awards, aimed at helping consumers find products offering outstanding value, not just the lowest price. We’ve also recently launched Customer Satisfaction Awards to add a consumer perspective to the comparison equation. In 2010, Canstar expanded its services and launched Canstar Blue to provide customer satisfaction research and ratings for consumer products and services. Today this spans over 1,000 brands across 150+ different consumer products and services, and plan comparisons in energy and telecommunications. Canstar is not owned by a financial institution, holds Australian Financial Services and Credit licenses, and takes its compliance obligations very seriously. Between Canstar and Canstar Blue, we compare over 1600 brands.
