The Partnership

Aon has a strong belief in empowering economic and human possibility and that is where there is great synergy in working with entrepreneurs and startups such as YBF. Aon’s strength is working with their clients on key challenges centred around: risk, retirement, health, capital, talent and data.

Using these key pillars, both Aon and YBF see this partnership as our opportunity to collaborate within a dynamic ecosystem to potentially address the emerging insurance and risk management challenges for progressive technology startups. 

The partnership forms part of Aon’s plan to work in collaboration with the FinTech and InsurTech movement to assist start-ups as they reshape the financial services market; we aim to leverage our collective resources and capabilities to help build meaningful relationships with the Australian startup ecosystem and help sustain the growth of the best and brightest entrepreneurs.

What Our Partners Are Saying


Jerome Rault

Founder, Romey.co

"Aon recognises the need to partner with small, nimble enterprises like Romey in order to stay dominant and ahead of the curve in the highly regulated insurance marketplace. Few large enterprises are willing to take the time, or allocate the resources, required to support a strategy of growth through partnering with young, dynamic firms the way Aon does."


Eric Frost

CEO, Simple KYC

"Aon has been fantastic at navigating us through the complexities of finding the right insurances for us."
