The Insurance Council of New Zealand (ICNZ) was established in 1895 to represent the fire and general insurance industry in New Zealand.
The Insurance Council is governed by a Board of 10 members, appointed annually at the AGM. The Council aims to assist members in key areas affecting their business through effective advocacy and communication.
ICNZ plays an active role in representing the insurance industry. Our members are all licensed under the Insurance (Prudential Supervision) Act 2010 and are signatories to the Fair Insurance Code that requires insurers to act ethically. The Council also performs an important role in informing and educating consumers about key insurance issues and risks.
