About Us


PolicyWand delivers a true do-it-yourself experience. You can run quotes without entering your contact information, unlike our competitors who do everything they can to capture your information to distribute to a sales call center. Feel free to learn about life insurance, shop for coverage, and pick the plan that’s best for you and your family without the pressure of a pushy sales agent on your back.

What Makes PolicyWand Different?

We’re changing the way Life Insurance is sold and purchased in this country. PolicyWand is pioneering the Insuretech and Fintech process starting with you, the consumer. We are working and improving on ways to deliver you a do-it-yourself online experience to purchase life insurance while developing modern Agent Artificial Intelligence so you are properly informed along the way. The right insurance agent can be useful, but they’re hard to find. Our virtual agent Wandy was designed by some of the best and most experienced insurance agents in the country and we’re always improving. In areas where our Virtual Agent may not be enough, we have live Licensed Agents ready to answer any questions you have. But don’t worry, none of them are paid a commission, they are simply here to help.

Insurance Carriers

PolicyWand works with America’s top-rated life insurance carriers that support an online purchasing experience. The rate you pay for coverage is not impacted by what agent or agency you purchase coverage through. The premiums come from the carriers – not the agent. So we’ve brought all the carriers you to compare. Shop with confidence, we’ve made it easy for you to pick a policy that works best for you.

A Message From Our Founder

Thanks for visiting PolicyWand, my name is Nick Trawinski and I've been working in the insurance industry since 2002. When I lived in New Jersey, first started my career with New York Life, and quickly realized that the Agency life wasn't for me. I learned early on why everyone hates dealing with insurance Agents, in fact, I was embarrassed to tell friends and family what I did for a living. New York Life tried to teach me to sell Permanent Life Insurance products like Whole Life and Variable Universal Life to my friends, family, and acquaintances.

I was 21 years old, and the people I knew either had no money or were much older than me and weren't going to be convinced by a kid with no life experience to invest thousands of dollars per month for Whole Life Insurance. It was a recipe for disaster for both the agent and the client. So I left and started my own independent agency which allowed me to provide my clients with a variety of insurance carriers and products that would best fit their individual needs.

So why did I start PolicyWand? Because today, insurance companies are still training their agents to sell Life Insurance like it's 2002. And with the technology we have available today, it no longer needs to be that way.

It's time to bring much-needed transparency to the insurance industry. At PolicyWand, you don't need to worry about an Insurance Agent selling you. You won't have to sit through a sales pitch. The process is simple, you can do this yourself. Here at PolicyWand, you can search for coverage on your own terms. You can utilize our virtual tools to assist you in determining how much coverage is right for you and you can compare the different prices from America's top-rated carriers. All in one spot, in less than 5 minutes. We will not ask for your contact information until you decide you want to apply. You can shop on your own and we're here if you need us.

If you do have questions, that's ok. I've personally trained our "non-commissioned" licensed agents to address all your questions. I promise you won't be sold - you will be helped.

Thanks for visiting PolicyWand. Sincerely, Nick Trawinski
