What insurance you absolutely need in the Corona pandemic
Is there an affordable insurance policy that will financially support me for life from long term damage after an accident or illness e.g. Covid-19?
Yes. Most of us have life insurance to provide financial protection for our family in the event of an untimely death. But what if you become incapacitated for life due to an illness? Who will then cover my lost salary, what will I live on? Here most know an occupational disability insurance, which is often offered in combination with a life insurance but...Read more
GELDPILOT24 expert Felix Schnella in "DAS INVESTMENT
GELDPILOT24 takes into account the life situation and the actual needs of the customers when advising them. The goal is to find the right, individual solution for the customer, whether it is financing, hedging or sustainable investments.

Comparison portals, vending machines or GELDPILOT24
With our GELDPILOT24 mission we are for lean, modern and customer-friendly applications. We also often find that customers believe that fast clicks on apps and insurance comparators go hand in hand with optimal concepts.
An example from Tilo, our head specialist for motor vehicle insurance: Driver protection is also the basic feature of every motor vehicle insurance policy. If a driver has an accident and passengers are injured, there is lifelong compensation or high one-off payments for very serious...Read more
In the past, customers went to the nearest bank, insurance company or building society or were visited by their representatives. Even in 2021, the mass of representatives are contractually bound to individual banks, building societies or insurance companies. Unbelievable in the age of comparison portals. However, many tens of thousands of agents have deregistered in recent years and become finance+insurance brokers. Due to the severe downsizing in banks, many bankers are now also becoming...Read more
Up to 37% growth since April 2020
Do you know this? There used to be up to 5 or 6% annual interest on time deposits and savings accounts. Currently, there is not only almost nothing more, but you even have to pay penalty interest on your balance at many banks. Then there is the devaluation due to inflation.
There is a huge demand for attractive, reputable investment alternatives. The wishes of customers are very often similar: - good availability - good performance - security. Often, the desire for sustainability is now added to this....Read more
Despite pandemic increased demand for financing with GELDPILOT24
Since the beginning of the year we have been experiencing a real run on real estate financing. The number of interested parties at GELDPILOT24 has multiplied compared to the previous year. The reasons for this are surely various. However, the main reasons are likely to be the still extremely low interest rates, but the pandemic situation is also influencing demand. Tangible assets, which of course includes real estate, are becoming increasingly interesting for people.
Corona has the most positive...Read more
A long journey, a car or your own house... everybody has dreams
The easiest way to fulfill your dreams or build a fortune is to save. For this reason, there is a World Savings Day every year at the end of October. In the past, children and young people queued up at the Volksbanks and savings banks to empty their piggy banks and pay their savings into the savings book. As a reward, there was not only interest, but also small gifts.
Times have changed. On the passbook there is no more interest at the house bank in the meantime. Fortunately there are attractive,...Read more
GELDPILOT24 checks gaps with eCheck
Totally independent of the Corona pandemic, we find significant gaps in insurance protection among the overwhelming number of new GELDPILOT24 interested parties. Almost always the gaps are such that in case of damage it can destroy the economic existence.
Often there is a lack of insurance protection in a sufficient amount if the breadwinners of the respective household are no longer able to carry out their work, whether due to illness or in the event of death. As already mentioned, this applies not...Read more
Europeweek 2020 with live launches
Our idea for the new foundation of a GELDPILOT24 customer+partner platform started after a stay with startups in Silicon Valley. We believe in team building and innovations that arise during Exchange Weeks. While the US start-ups mostly go to Californian beaches, we chose a Thinkplace just off Capri and Amalfi. A good choice, because the region is hardly affected by COVID-19.
Our PILOTweek 2020 brought among other things the long awaited Tech-Launch in the GELDPILOT24 customer portal. Until now, our...Read more
Creative-Youtuber #Plug head creative with Startup

GELDPILOT24 wants to concentrate on specific topics and is launching its...Read more
Relax with GELDPILOT24 into the summer weekend
Weekend... So what do you do? Longboard cruising or compare contracts, look for financing, receipts, vouchers.... Digitalisation also means that customers have more and more freedom. At GELDPILOT24, for example, the past is that in the event of a claim, customers do not fill in damage reports anywhere on the homepage, nor do they write to their account or change their address via e-mail or homepage. GELDPILOT24 customers can find all this in just a few clicks in their personal account and change their...Read more
Finding optimal solutions for customers and brokers
Finding optimal solutions for customers requires a huge amount of expertise. It is a real challenge to keep track of hundreds of insurance companies with umpteen tariffs, many banks and thousands of funds. In addition, hardly any customer situation is the same as another.
To generate this knowledge as an individual financial+insurance broker alone is almost impossible. Some single company insurance agents even remain agents because they are concerned about finding the right solutions in this endless...Read more
We bring rhythm to the virtual classrooms
We're moving on.

Co-Founder Torsten Guenther and Marcus Jungnickel in conversation
Marcus Jungnickel and Torsten Guenther are among the co-founders of GELDPILOT24. Both were conceived and started in Silicon Valley and had been managers in a sales organisation for over a decade. In the insurance sector, they only had the products of one company. As representatives of a single insurance company, they often reached their limits in terms of performance, price and concept to provide maximum benefit to the customer.
After a successful change as a very successful financial+insurance broker,...Read more
Mortgage lending value calculation and loan-to-value ratio and lending limit
The mortgage lending value is the value of the collateral, i.e. for real estate loans the value of the property that can be expected to be maintained in the long term with a high degree of probability
This means that the bank must therefore examine the current and future sale value of the property. The bank deducts a certain discount from the mortgage lending value to minimise risk. It is intended to cover the risk of impairment due to market and other external factors. Each bank decides for itself how...Read more
Falk Ernst, GELDPILOT24-CRO Financing Part 2
The repayment amount
How high the repayment rate should be in concrete terms depends on the period in which you want to pay off the loan. As a rule, this should be the case when you retire at the latest. If you are 25 today and want to be debt-free at 65, you will have lower monthly charges than a 45-year-old who takes out a loan of the same amount and also wants to be debt-free at 65.
The lower the interest rate, the higher the repayment should be. The lower the interest rate, the...Read more
Professional Falk Ernst exclusively on financing with GELDPILOT24
This multi-part series of articles will focus on the most important terms and the most frequently asked questions about real estate financing. In this respect, this series of articles is aimed at all those who are just beginning to get to grips with this topic and at those who want to refresh or deepen their knowledge.
But right from the start: Part 1: How much house can I afford?
The first question most people ask is: "How much house can I afford?" The following rule of thumb can serve as a first...Read more
Virtual school lesson with Europe/World+Olympics winner
The demand from school classes in the Covid 19 times from all over Germany is so great that even during the holidays a school lesson of our project #WemakeSchool took place. In the last few weeks, several substitution lessons started, among others with the world runner Robby Clemens, the unique national player Josco Wolke and the DFB youth national coach legend Frank Engel.
After three "gentlemen", it was time for a teacher. And we succeeded. And what a teacher. Annekatrin Thiele, multiple European...Read more
Fully digital ecosystem for partner companies of GELDPILOT24
Only a few weeks ago, despite all the digital demands, there were still GELDPILOT24 partners and customers who only used some of the possibilities of the new digital GELDPILOT24 Tech system. This has changed fundamentally since the changes brought about by Covid-19. We have noticed that customers of all age categories are now very consciously using our eTools - from eBoarding to digital eChecks to the GELDPILOT24 customer portal.
All eTools are networked with each other. Gone are the days when a...Read more
Frank Engel coached many of today's DFB stars
Within the scope of our project #WirmachenSchule we support pupils and parents in the whole federal territory kosten+werbefrei with the establishment of virtual school classes. In addition to technical support, we conduct virtual school lessons with prominent substitute teachers. The goal is to bring a little color into the current Covid-19 lockdown everyday life of the students and their parents and siblings.
Next Thursday at 10:30 a.m. we will start a school lesson/holiday lesson with trainer legend...Read more
Josco Wilke, the youngest national player of all times with world premiere

"Substitute teacher" Robby Clemens brings students from the North Pole to the South Pole
For more than two weeks now, we have been providing virtual classrooms to students, parents and teachers. We are supporting the launch and providing the technical basis for virtual teaching.
Today we start another aid project #WirMachenSchule for pupils, parents and teachers. With the organisation SPECIAL substitute teachers we bring a splash of colour into virtual lessons! They take students, teachers and often parents, siblings and even grandparents on a "school trip" into their own world. Involved...Read more
Virtual classrooms including technical support
Apart from the fact that we are 100% committed to our customers and partners, we have been helping our company since GELDPILOT24 was founded. We mostly support social projects in sports or for children, youth and families.
What can we currently do to help? We didn't have to search long for the solution. We received initial enquiries about the GELDPILOT24 video system including training for school classes.
The decision was made quickly. Our participating Storpartner and GELDPILOT24 are now starting a...Read more
Investment star Mathias Lippold in his column for GELDPILOT24
Hamster purchases in pasta and toilet paper, empty shelves, the canned bread celebrates a comeback. Empty streets, no playgrounds. Germany at the beginning of 2020.
Suddenly and unexpectedly a small virus called Corona has moved into the centre of all events. It is quite realistic that the fear of spreading alone will cause more damage than the virus itself. In any case, it is important to minimise illness and infection through appropriate personal behaviour, and those affected must be given the best...Read more
Why is the fund manager Felix Schnella joining GELDPILOT24?
We at GELDPILOT24 have known Felix for some time. A top manager with heart and mind, and in that order. In recent weeks Felix has worked with us to develop pitch books for investors, partners and companies.
In the temporarily more turbulent times with Covid-19, Felix made a conscious decision for GELDPILOT24 early on. Here he has the opportunity to work 100% digitally and independently of time and space with his partners and customers successfully.
For the first time, GELDPILOT24 is thus more...Read more
GELDPILOT24 customers appreciate digital and personal
Many file folders full of financial and insurance documents? Is that still up to date? You are on the road and need access to your contracts? Our customers have a personal GELDPILOT24 account in which they can digitally find their contracts, data and documents of their financial+insurance contracts. Through an evaluation in traffic light colours, our customer learns how we assess existing contracts, which contracts are missing or superfluous. Printout, downloads of the contracts or contract mail is...Read more
Why you have to talk about protection and coronavirus
We are not doctors, but we deal with health scenarios of new and existing GELDPILOT24 customers on a daily basis. In the last few days the question has repeatedly come up in our minds: Should we write about the importance of insurance protection also in connection with the coronavirus (Covid-19)?
As you will read, as digital and also personal insurance brokers we have decided to do so. Why? In most cases, mothers or fathers, families and singles with commitments have far too little or no coverage for...Read more
CDO Michael Gruber in a TV interview
Michael is Chief District Officer for the entire Bavarian Forest region. Until 2019, Michael was extremely successful for many years in the exclusivity of a large financial+insurance sales company. At a time when he had already left this distribution, he got to know GELDPILOT24 and applied for a job with us.
Why is the huge selection of companies so important for combining a good concept? Why does he see so much relief in the digital concept of GELDPILOT24? Why have the digital tools made Michael...Read more
Startup from Leipzig grows with Felix Schnella

Exclusive interview with EBASE spokesman Rudolf Geyer
Never before in the history of Europe and the Federal Republic of Germany have good investment experts been in greater demand than now. The reasons for this are simple and compelling: adjusted for inflation, European savings deposits earn minus interest! The real assets are melting away. GeldPilot24 is receiving more and more requests from existing and new customers for a modern fund account.
For decades now there have been profitable alternatives to savings books or fixed-term deposit accounts. Good...Read more
Opportunities and changes in 2020

Why the ALLIANZ is so often number one
We did it again. Our CSO Torsten Günther met with the member of the Management Board Dr. Thomas Wiesemann from ALLIANZ-Lebensversicherung. In order to obtain the best possible information for our GELDPILOT24 partners and customers, we often meet with key managers of the companies.
In our experience, ALLIANZ-Lebensversicherung is one of the future insurers, both in terms of its figures and ratings and its efforts to make digital progress. It is one of the companies with which we cooperate in a...Read more
Exciting news about sponsoring eSports
Leipzig eSports is one of the largest eSports clubs in Germany. Not only we find eSport megacool, but also our many young customers. Leipzig eSports sees itself as a promoter of popular sports and we support this within the scope of a sponsoring between GELDPILOT24 and Leipzig eSports.
The club now hosted the 8th Community Cup, to which players also travelled from far away. Our CSO Torsten was invited by eSports for a live interview in the stream. How does GELDPILOT24 work? What are the advantages for...Read more
How good can GELDPILOT24 insurance?
With the worldwide known WORLDRUNNER Robby Clemens we have started a new project. Robby explains in small fresh video clips how he sees the world of finance+insurance things.
As part of a cool, big TV project, Robby was now back in Mexico. Robby Clemens is also an enthusiastic GELDPILOT24 user and needed insurance cover for the good feeling on his travels almost a few hours before departure.
If you have a personal, fully digital GELDPILOT24 then this is no problem. Info in your GELDPILOT24 messenger...Read more
Können Robos und ETFs erfolgreiche Fondsmanager ersetzen?
In order to get an exclusive interview with the fund manager of the last decades, you have to have patience, success and expertise. GELDPILOT24 has made it; Torsten Günther, our CSO, now had Klaus Kaldemorgen from DWS in conversation.
GELDPILOT24 customers do not only manage their insurances digitally and with the respective Storepartner. A unique selling point is that our customers can view their fund portfolios on a daily basis in addition to their loans and insurances. In the GELDPILOT24 basic...Read more
Weekly new contributions in the GELDPILOT24-Channel
In the German-speaking GELDPILOT24-Youtube channel we were already enthusiastic about the requests of curious users. We are now expanding this further due to rising demand. From November 2019, our growth will also be accompanied by weekly tutorials, interviews and tips via Youtube.com/GELDPILOT24.
In the past, we have interviewed managers of major insurance companies, banks and investment companies. The interviews with WORLDRUNNER Robby Clemens were also very popular. Likewise with our specialized...Read more
When insurance companies are viewed critically, you also hear "they don't pay". Our experience, when well advised and looked after, is almost always different. A lack of protection endangers your economic existence. Existential risks such as liability insurance, occupational disability, accident, death, nursing care, health insurance and personal pension are compulsory areas.
Benefit disputes with the insurance company often involve considerable sums. From several thousand euros damage an insurance...Read more
GELDPILOT24 at the start in Berlin and Eilenburg
During our GELDPILOT24-ThinkTank in Italy Thomas met for you with the ex-sports professional Steffen Sparborth. Steffen is the Head of Region Berlin-Mitte and also CDO for the region around the future Store Eilenburg.
Questions Thomas asked Steffen: What drives you? How did the change from top athlete to Finanz+Versicherungsmakler come about? How do you deal with crises? A worthwhile interview in every respect.
In addition to his successful career in boxing, Steffen Sparborth was also a sales...Read more
Network partners in the legal sector for customers and store partners
In the everyday life of our customers and partners there are not only financial+insurance concepts but also always the need for legal support. GELDPILOT24 cooperates very, very successfully with the law firm Bastanier & Schmelzer for the benefit of our customers and partners.
We almost always recommend our clients to be accompanied by Bastanier & Schmelzer in cases of occupational disability. It is not uncommon for benefits to run into the millions and beyond. Or even if insurance payments don't work...Read more
Branches should become obsolete in the future, according to some startups, they are not sexy enough. Many things will become digital. We believe that with simple standardized things such as transfer, pay-in and pay-out, this is a thesis where we go along.
But when it comes to demand situations at Finanzen+Versicherungen the dual mix of digital and GELDPILOT24-Store is the right way. Apple stores are today not to be excluded any more, although Apple could digitize away the coworkers of the stores...Read more
Lemonade, WEFOX, GELDPILOT24, ONE, GETSAFE, Clark or what?
In March 2016, we sat for the first time in San Mateo, Silicon Valley, for talks in the United States. Not far from the headquarters of one of the world's largest fund managers, Franklin Templeton. Our very tech-heavy contacts there surprisingly explained to us that online access to your insurance is not enough for you, but that a personally reachable, non-changing contact person is just as important. In the event of damage, not everything would always be so easy in the USA, and it would quickly become a...Read more
Applicants almost always state pre-existing conditions
The protection of the case of occupational disability belongs to the necessary standard with GELDPILOT24. The state only secures you in case of total disability. What live on if e.g. back, psyche, skin, respiration do not take part any more and you cannot exercise your occupation any longer. If it comes particularly stupidly, it hits you already decades before the pension. The sum of all your BU pension payments together can go then already times into the million range. That's why insurers check...Read more
Robby Clemens, clubs, partner and world champion Annekatrin Thiele

Clubs, Stars and Business at BASISLAGER-Leipzig
Leipzig the better Berlin? In the past, quotes about Leipzig from Europe to the USA were heard like this or similarly. GELDPILOT24 loves Berlin and Leipzig. As the headquarters for GELDPILOT24, we have chosen Leipzig as the city of many superlatives, in contrast to thousands of Fin+Insuretechs. So it is obvious that we will perform our GELDPILOT24.club Startup-Night in Leipzig on Wednesday, May 15th, 2019. Due to the massive savings in time and effort in our daily work, we have an attractive business...Read more
Sponsoring with commitment of GELDPILOT24
Now it's time. The GELDPILOT24-Store base camp and Leipzig-eSports start the partnership. Before the start there were meetings between Patrick Dreißig, CEO, and GELDPILOT24. We also presented our startup in a board meeting.
Our decision: We support Leipzig-eSports with our own GELDPILOT24-eSport-Leipzig.de Store. Who simplifies, digitizes or starts under the left GELDPILOT24-Leipzig-eSports.de its finances+insurances thereby also the association supports. GELDPILOT24 measures the success and thus...Read more
Advantages for GELDPILOT24 customers not only at Easter
Before Easter, we had a look at the new customer campaigns of banks and insurance companies. AMAZON vouchers, raffles or currently again from banks up to 100 € starting credit. Sometimes we are surprised that there are still no folding chairs or drilling machines as with newspaper subscriptions.
There the advertised Finance + Insurance customer loses already times the substantial from the eyes. Which costs come to him. Often there are fees like expenditure surcharges with open funds plus the fund fees...Read more
Leipzig the fastest growing city in Germany
We have met with all the makers of the BASISLAGER Leipzig. Behind the BASISLAGER is the initiator, the Madsack media group among other owners of the Leipziger Volkszeitung-LVZ, Hannoverscher Allgemeine, Dresdner Neueste Nachrichten and many other daily newspapers and media in Germany.
From our point of view, the BASISLAGER Leipzig is by no means just a CoWorkingSpace. Besides HHL's Spinlab, it is the heart of Leipzig for startups. With the help of Marco Weicholdt's team, we can start our founding...Read more
Why large societies are sometimes better
Customers often decide to have their financial+insurance contracts checked when accidents or illnesses occur in the vicinity of friends or acquaintances. These customers have then already experienced in the environment and sometimes also in the closer family circle how incompletely national in addition, private insurances can be.
With GELDPILOT24 these customers request a check of their total situation. We examine the past contracts or determine missing insurance protection on the basis the existing...Read more
Insurance as an underestimated must for starting a career
School's over. You can calculate quasi flight curves to Mars but have no plan to finance+insurance. Your need for action on legally prescribed and necessary insurances + financial matters is very great. First of all you have to make the most important decision. How do you want to manage your finances + insurances? You have to decide smart if you want to become a customer of a tied representative of an insurance company or if you have a Finanz+Versicherungsmakler who is legally regulated on your side and...Read more
Why Falk Store became a partner of GELDPILOT24
You can see why Falk has changed professionally in an interview with Thomas Jahn, our Head of Insurance. After extensive discussions and research, Falk decided to qualify as a Finanz+Versicherungsmakler and become a partner of GELDPILOT24. He has been store manager of GELDPILOT24 since 2018. Prior to that, he was for 12 long years a tied sales representative of a sales organisation that mediates for a single insurance company. What distinguishes Falk is the pursuit of benefits for its customers. Our...Read more
GELDPILOT24 works everywhere
For our customers GELDPILOT24 is more than just a startup with a cool technology. To have a personal contact person in one of our stores if required is also an argument for our many young customers. While most Europeans and US citizens still organize their paper mountains, GELDPILOT24 enjoy the luxury that their current financial+insurance situation is never further away than their smartphone. And no matter where GELDPILOT24 customers are, it works everywhere. No matter if Caribbean, USA, Asia, all...Read more
Why, why, why? GELDPILOT24 answers
The German spends more than two thousand euros a year on insurance. In many European countries, even more is spent on pensions alone. We at GELDPILOT24 see a good overall concept for insurance cover similar to a good football position. If in your concept your players all only play in the defense it will be just as difficult to win the game as if you only put your players in the storm.
To insure correctly means to recognize the important need first and to know the most important insurances depending on...Read more
Why, why, why? GELDPILOT24 answers you
Family is defined as a group of people living together. In Germany at least two decades of living together are normal. At some point your parents get older or sick and the children take on the role of the person in charge. Who wants to be a burden to their children? Who doesn't care at what age wants to apply for social assistance for nursing care? This does not only apply to the age but can be due to illness or accident already decades before. Here you will find out at the latest that you will be held...Read more

GELDPILOT24 with successful eStore concept
Last week we received the feedback of a new GELDPILOT24 customer "how easy and fast it is to become a digital customer with you". There is a lot of movement in the possibilities for customers. Many new insurance companies are emerging, more and more startups with quickly clickable ideas. At present more than a dozen new insurance companies are to be announced for permission. Even more insurance companies and banks, more investment start-ups with robo ideas. This brings opportunities for customers, but...Read more
Mistakes endanger your existence
A partner from the GELDPILOT24 team is often on the road with his car in Austria and Italy. His new car should be well insured. Our colleague insisted that a number of car insurances were out of the question. We were curious and asked why.
Some important German motor vehicle insurances exclude in their small print conditions insurance protection against earthquakes and mudslides, volcanoes. Large internet comparators often do not offer digital driver protection. Are you sure that mudslides like in the...Read more
23,000 kilometers from the North Pole to the "South Pole" on foot
Twenty long months from Leipzig to the North Pole and then on foot to Antarctica. Congratulations to Robby Clemens. Leipzig, city of records. Not only the most newly built Porsche come from Leipzig, a nationwide financial startup, but also Robby Clemens who ran together with GELDPILOT24 from North Pole to South Pole.
On his tour Robby tested the use of his GELDPILOT24 account again and again as an enthusiastic user, sportsman and record runner. By the way, Robby first became a GELDPILOT24 user on his...Read more

Banks, insurance companies, investment funds
One of our stores is the GELDPILOT24 store at Leipzig-Halle Airport. Appointments with journalists, experts, applicants, marketing specialists and of course customers. Why GELDPILOT24-Stores e.g. in an airport, in shopping centres? Why where the people are?

So it happens again and again that prospective customers and applicants ask the stores directly. New customers love that...Read more
Welcome GELDPILOT24 to Miami
Shortly before twelve o'clock the decision of the tough jury was made. GELDPILOT24 wins the MUT-Contest 2018.

With the help of Robby Clemens, who from his North Pole/South Pole expedition from Peru very briefly described his experiences as an enthusiastic user of GELDPILOT24.

GELDPILOT24-CoFounder Marcus Jungnickel about the differences
There are huge differences in the capabilities of financial+insurance brokers and agents. Although the term "exclusive agent", "insurance agent" or "tied agent" already includes the restriction as an explanatory term. We value representatives. Some of our founders were previously professional representatives. We met with Marcus Jungnickel for an interview. Marcus is co-founder of GELDPILOT24, store manager and last but not least very successful. Previously Marcus was extremely successful in a...Read more

HAUS LEBEN and the store Markkleeberg together in action

Our GELDPILOT24 stores
Before founding our GELDPILOT24 platform, we asked consumers worldwide how they envisaged a new type of financial+insurance platform. In both the USA and Europe, young and old alike, respondents want a personal contact person with a large number of companies. Video, online, eChat or phone are absolutely accepted. No more paperwork on damage reports. Applications and signatures can all be done online from mobile phone, laptop, tablet. Nevertheless, most people want a personal contact person. We believe...Read more
Number of tied agents dramatically
There are more and more individual solution providers in the financial sector. New digital insurance, new digital banks and robo startups for investment. Does the customer really want everything individually? For customers it is becoming more and more confusing. This often involves existential decisions in the areas of insurance and old-age provision. Whether the quickly clicked insurance cover is really what you need is often only known decades later. Later it is almost impossible to correct errors from...Read more
86 percent of Generation Y would also like a personal contact person
Do you know the situation? Digitisation is praised as a major step forward for consumers. Some believe lawyers, tax consultants, financial+insurance experts and most doctors will no longer be needed in the future. However, clicking Financial+Insurance services incorrectly could destroy your existence. The customer must realize that he needs a partner with a maximum number of companies. What is the German reality? Most customers are still served by single company agents. Representatives have few...Read more
Support your club and simplify your finances at the same time
Financial distributors, insurance companies, corporations give billions of euros annually to professional athletes, professional clubs and prominent personalities from show and sport. As a result, few VIP clubs, athletes and superstars receive the majority of the Group's sponsoring budgets. At the same time, however, many children and youth associations are fighting for every euro. GELDPILOT24 wants to be fair as an important part of our concept. We don't want to spend money on pompous big events or...Read more
Avoid errors when closing
It is one of the most important covers and an absolute must, occupational disability insurance. We asked our experts from GELDPILOT24-Research what are the most mistakes at the conclusion:
1. To postpone the conclusion to "Later". Later means expensive, much more expensive due to the increasing age of entry. Later, the risk of not getting a contract. Or to pay high surcharges. Or just incomplete insurance cover. Main reason: Health issues of up to 10 years back.
2. Only to pay the price. More important...Read more
Far too few financial+insurance brokers in Germany
Are there too many insurance brokers in Germany? The opposite is the case. Professor Dr. Beenken published a study "How many intermediaries actually exist (in Germany)". According to this, there are only 25,000 insurance brokers for 83 million inhabitants in Germany. To this day, it surprises us in discussions with managers and politicians that only a few know about these figures. There are no 250,000 full-time agents in Germany. More than 70% of all German brokers are not financial+insurance brokers...Read more

Such platforms also have an appropriate name in England: ZOMBIE-Insurance. This is often due to the fact that the companies manage higher-interest portfolios.

Fewer and fewer single-company insurance agents

Young generation wants to be independent, digital and personal
One of our GELDPILOT24 stores is located in the middle of the central terminal of Leipzig Airport. Between the approximately 15 travel agencies we can observe a phenomenon there, which should no longer exist. Many young, well-educated customers who seek personal advice from travel agencies instead of concluding their contracts online.
From our point of view, a good travel agency offers a modern mix between digital and offline. Only ten years ago it was assumed that there would soon be no more personal...Read more

Anonymous financial and insurance support can be dangerous for you
One of our colleagues had a very special experience with two larger banks. In the past this colleague had told us again and again about "great online banking" with a bank. He was out shopping and needed a larger daily limit on his accounts. One bank had for him as a good business client an unavailable client advisor, whose deputy was also not available, and otherwise a call center that, apart from "we pass on", could do nothing. The employees in the branch, whom he visited especially, were also sorry....Read more

Digitisation: Opportunities and risks for clients and consultants
A more valuable object of yours e.g. bicycle, fur coat, laptop, smartphone has been lost, stolen or destroyed. Your insurance pays you the damage three minutes after the damage report?

Free-ranging horses in the middle of the night on the highway. Our GELDPILOT24 colleague, himself on the road with a caravan and children, was lucky in misfortune, half a...Read more
Why term life insurance is often wrong or does not exist at all
Many members Or our customer calls and tells us that he has a very bad prognosis because of an illness and what we can do to increase his death cover.
Why take out your term life insurance with an insurance broker? Often industry experts such as specialist lawyers come to us as clients because they are aware of our possibilities, e.g. anonymous preliminary inquiries, the selection of suppliers and also knowledge of current special offers.

What customers want and what not
"And we can also have a personal conversation if required?"
We hear this question over and over again when customers switch to us.

More and more insurances, investments and financings are clicked fast today. Many of these decisions often take decades to show whether the decision was right. An uninsured nursing case in old age costs up to several...Read more
Expedition from the North Pole to the South Pole with GELDPILOT24
Yesterday we were able to hand over the first two GELDPILOT24 caps of the "North Pole South Pole" edition for testing purposes. Recipients were the sons of one of our founders. They were more than enthusiastic and so were we. Since it was still about the test caps regarding embroidery and cap selection, it was very difficult to get the caps back, because the kids had already totally appropriated them.
The caps are something special. The ideas came from the GELDPILOT24 team itself and our Head of...Read more
Parents are liable for their children
If a parent's illness, accident, care or death result in huge costs, what does the family look like? What is the financial security of your children if something happens to their parents? If your parents or children need care because of illness or accident, parents or children should pay for them. Nowadays, additional monthly payments of 1,400 euros in an old people's home are no longer rare. The monthly additional payment is over 1,700 euros nationwide.

Digital and personal - we are everywhere
Before founding our GELDPILOT24 platform, we asked international consumers how they envisaged a new digital financial+insurance platform. To our surprise, both in the USA and in Europe, young and old alike, the respondents also wanted a personal contact person if necessary. The younger respondents in particular accepted that contact was first made via digital channels. Video, online or telephone are absolutely accepted. None of the respondents had any desire for hours of sales talks in the evenings.

Marcus Jungnickel, StoreManager and Co-Founder
Marcus is a co-founder of GELDPILOT24, who deliberately terminated his exclusivity agreement in a financial distribution company a few years ago. There Marcus was one of the most successful sales representatives of this organization. However, Marcus deliberately did not want to be in the narrower channels as a sales representative any more.
At GELDPILOT24 Marcus is not only co-founder but also speaker, quasi co-determining in the management and also coordinates the implementation of various projects...Read more

How you do it right as a career starter, student
Some time ago we received a call from a man about 20 years old. He wanted to inform himself urgently about accident insurance and occupational disability cover. OK, we gave him a quick appointment. When the potential customer appeared at the appointment in wide sweatpants and hobbling in hiding, it was clear to us that someone had underestimated the importance of security and saved in the wrong place. Unfortunately, we had to explain to him that retroactive insurance cover is almost impossible.

GELDPILOT24 asks member of the board of Europe's largest insurance company
We had important questions in an interview with Dr. Thomas Wiesemann, member of the Management Board of ALLIANZ Lebensversicherungs-AG. How does ALLIANZ currently earn interest?

Occupational disability, term life insurance, long-term care, accident........
Modern times or doing everything like yesterday?
Comparison portals such as Check24 or Verifox give customers the feeling that all their financial and insurance needs can be managed from their mobile phone.

Only a few weeks ago, our research team tested a very large one of these portals and found out in the automotive sector that the highly important driver protection is...Read more

Why wrongly insured can endanger existence
The German spends 2387 costs per year on insurance. Our tip will be given before the hammer is removed. Wrong or not insured endangers your economic existence.
How are the 2,387 € per year divided up?
1.141 € for retirement, death or disability, 792 € for damage + accident insurance and 453 € for private health + supplementary health insurance.
For example, you want to "save" on a very large comparison portal and take out your car insurance. Then you will have an accident alone in the car, hurl...Read more
GELDPILOT24 asks lawyer Kai Behrens
More and more insurance sales representatives or sales organizations are changing. The number of agents has been shrinking for years, while the number of insurance brokers is increasing or stable. The motivations of the representatives are often similar: First and foremost, many more possibilities to find solutions + concepts for customers, escape of the often competitive sales atmosphere, more sustainable payment that takes the pressure of quick deals, and last but not least, your own company as a...Read more
