Created in 2018, Unkle's aim is to facilitate access to rental while providing security for landlords.
To make renting simpler and safer for both the renter and the landlord.
Unkle, in partnership with leading insurance companies, has developed products to meet these objectives:
We are the first neo-insurer dedicated to real estate to simplify and improve the customer experience for renters and landlords.
Unkle is, first of all, a nod to the uncle who can represent an alternative solution to parents to help a renter to rent a flat.
Unkle is above all a nod to Michael, one of Matthew's uncles, one of the co-founders of Unkle. He set up a wealth management firm at the age of 40 and when he rented his flat, he was asked to prove his financial health. Not being able to show his last 3 balance sheets because his business was starting, Michaël/that uncle was asked to find a guarantor.
The problem was that at the age of 40, Michaël, Matthew's uncle, had no desire to appeal to his parents and in any case his parents were retired.
It was finally Fabien, Matthew's father-in-law, who vouched for him.
Unkle is therefore there to tackle all the absurd situations that prevent renters from simply having access to housing. While at the same time offering both renters and landlords all the insurance products they need to cover themselves with confidence.
