Media Release

NZI wins insurer of the year

NZI was awarded insurer of the year in the 2007 General Insurance Industry Awards last night – the third time the insurer has prevailed in the category.

Held at Auckland’s War Memorial Museum, the award was presented to Ian Foy, Head of NZI, by Gary Young, Chief Executive of the Insurance Brokers Association of New Zealand.

The award has been in place since 2001 and is a true celebration of excellence among New Zealand-based insurers.

Members of the leading broker organisations selected NZI as a leader in service during the course of the year. NZI topped its competitors in all the five categories of reputation, value, product range, and quality of service and client relationships.

Head of NZI Ian Foy described the win as a real honour.

“This award is a reflection of all the tremendous effort and energy that our people have put in to their relationships with brokers over the past year,” he said.

“This is a very exciting time for the NZI business. NZI has also launched New Zealand’s first sustainable insurance products so this win could not come at a better time for our hard working team.”

NZI’s sustainable insurance products reward customers for lowering their emissions.

Customers who drive less than 5,000 kilometres in a year or drivers of hybrid or fuel-efficient vehicles will be rewarded with a 10% discount on their NZI Distinction or Echelon insurance premiums.

NZI Distinction home insurance customers who have to rebuild their home in the event of a total loss will receive up to $20,000 extra to add sustainable features to their home. When making a claim on their contents insurance, NZI Distinction customers also have the opportunity to replace whiteware with energy-efficient equivalents.
