NZI is one of New Zealand’s largest and most well-known insurance brands, offering an extensive selection of flexible, comprehensive insurance services for people and businesses throughout the country.
Originating in 1859, NZI is one of the country’s largest and longest-serving fire and general insurance brands, protecting hundreds of thousands of New Zealanders every year through a broad range of business, personal and rural insurance products.
We offer a full range of personal insurance and business insurance that recognises the risks to your lifestyle and livelihood. Whether you choose from our core products protecting your house, car or next holiday, or work with a broker on a tailor-made package for your business, our competitive and innovative insurance solutions will reflect your unique needs.
We distribute our products through a nationwide network of qualified and experienced brokers – meaning you get informed, independent advice from some of the best insurance brains in the business.
In addition, we underwrite insurance for The Warehouse Travel and for some of New Zealand’s leading financial institutions, including ASB, BNZ, The Co-operative Bank and Westpac.
NZI is a business division of IAG New Zealand Limited, which has received a financial strength rating of AA- from Standard & Poor’s (Australia) Pty Ltd, an approved rating agency.
A rating of AA- means we have a ‘very strong’ claims-paying ability (for more information and to view the rating scale, visit www.standardandpoors.com). As a customer, this is your reassurance that NZI will be able to pay out on your claims.
We’ve been in business and serving the NZ community for more than 150 years. Our commitment to sustainability shows our ultimate faith in the future of that partnership. It’s central to everything we do, from the 5 Star Green Star rated building where we work to the sustainable insurance policies that reward responsibility. We’re also extremely proud to support the Sustainable Business Network through our Foundation Partnership, which has been in place since 2008.
As New Zealand’s leading commercial insurer, we believe we have an important part to play in helping communities prosper. By offering vital protection against the things that will unfortunately always go wrong in business, we enable businesses to take calculated risks they need to take in order to explore, innovate, grow and prosper. Insurance is as much about growing a business as it is about protecting it. In fact, it’s pretty much impossible to start or expand a business without it.
It’s also our job to protect the wealth of households and businesses by helping people recover from the hardship of unexpected loss. This backbone provision helps make our economy and society more stable. To continue to do this, we need to be around long-term. Therefore, being sustainable is fundamental to the way we do business.
