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.
