About Insurance Advisernet
Insurance Advisernet represents a network of over 40 independent insurance brokers looking after 16,000 clients and employing over 170 staff nationwide. Our role is to provide our members with access to a platform of services that ensures they can provide their clients with leading insurance products, technology and policy wordings along with the collective buying power of both Insurance Advisernet and NZbrokers who we partnered with in 2016. Our focus is to provide key services to our members that reduce the administrative burden and assist them in ensuring they are compliant, so their focus can be on providing high quality risk advice that business owners can trust. Today we’re one of the largest and most respected General Insurance businesses in New Zealand.
Insurance Advisernet New Zealand was established in 2006 as a joint venture between Insurance Advisernet Australia and New Zealand investors. In 2010 Insurance Advisernet Australia took a majority shareholding in our business. This provided membership to the ASX-listed AUB Group, one of the top general insurance broking groups in Australasia. With more than $4.5 billion of gross premiums under management it gives us unrivalled buying power that now spans every major insurer in New Zealand and Australia, plus access to overseas insurers including Lloyd’s of London.
Through our partnership with NZbrokers (majority owned by AUB Group), we collectively look after over $500 million of client premiums and nearly 140,000 clients throughout New Zealand.
Trust is the cornerstone on which our business is built. It means we do what we say we’ll do. Use our expertise to put your needs first and foremost. And are always transparent about the advice we provide and why we provide it.
Great advice is based on great understanding and relationships. It’s why adopting a risk management approach and assessing your unique risk profile is essential to ensuring the right polices are always in place. It’s what sets us apart.
Insurance is no time for compromise. It’s vital to have access to a wide range of insurance options so, once identified, your needs can be effectively met. That’s why we have active relationships with more than 100 major insurers.
Price is always important. But value goes much further. It’s the sum total of the depth of our relationships, the quality of our advice, the breadth of our offering and the efficiency of our systems – all bolstered by our unrivalled buying power as the one of the leading general insurance advisory dealer groups. Ultimately though, our key value to you is as your advocate in the event of a claim.

From inadequate levels of income protection and life insurance arrangements, to grossly undervalued business assets and equipment, alarmingly few New Zealanders have anything remotely like what they’d actually need in the event of a claim. In other words, as a nation we’re flying by the seat of our pants.

In modern business there are brokers for virtually anything, those whose knowledge and expertise outweighs all others. We pay these experts to analyse, predict and deliver information that, hopefully, further enhances our productivity and profit margins. But what happens when the advice fails to deliver or causes major problems for your business? Or if the advice you provide to another party isn’t well received?
