And Kogan.Com continues to expand, having entered into an agreement with Greenstone Financial Services Pty Ltd allowing it to add life insurance and funeral insurance services to its portfolio.

The latest agreement compliments its insurance portfolio and follows an agreement with Medibank Private Ltd (ASX: MPL), which enables Kogan.com to offer budget health insurance policies under its Kogan Health brand.
