Investment Our Approach Ventures

We are pleased to announce that Firemark Ventures has invested in Airtasker!

Airtasker is the leading marketplace for services in Australia and we see significant value in the platform and enormous potential for us to work together to find new and innovative ways to reduce risk and improve safety for its members, while connecting our customers to Airtasker’s services.

With more than two million Australians using Airtasker to outsource everyday tasks, IAG and Airtasker will now be able to explore how to design and deliver insurance protection tailored to the sharing economy platform.

With this investment into Airtasker, we are now also trialling propositions outside the insurance category, including an Airtasker offer for CGU Insurance small business customers, and customers using the ShareCover short term rental insurance product.
