Anyplace selects Jacob Street Partners for insurance solution

US: Flexible housing marketplace Anyplace has selected Jacob Street Partners to provide an innovative insurance solution for its customers – Anyplace Secure.

Anyplace Secure has been set up to provide guests with innovative protection during their temporary housing stay.

The partnership will include comprehensive belongings, liability and accidental damage protection for guests staying in Anyplace accommodations.

Through Jacob Street, guests staying with Anyplace will have insurance coverage in all US 50 states and 180 countries around the world. The product is designed to safeguard personal belongings and mitigate the majority of risk for those staying in short-term housing.

Anyplace owner Steve Satoru Naito said: “We have one simple philosophy: provide the best possible stay experience to every guest. We want them to instantly feel at home, and that includes being covered with the same kind of protection they would expect at home.

“Our guests’ comfort is of the utmost importance, and Anyplace Secure renters insurance is a key factor that can provide peace of mind, so they can truly enjoy the time in their new location,” he added.

Elizabeth Soley, president of Jacob Street Partners, said: “By the very nature of short-term housing, the guest is going through a transition. We love partnering with companies like Anyplace to provide a safety net for when things go wrong and give the guests greater protection.

“We are excited to be a small but important part of making their guests’ stay a success,” she added.

Last January, Anyplace raised $5.3 million in a Series A funding round to expand its network of remote work-friendly apartments in major cities across the United States.
