Who we are:

The Insurance Council of New Zealand (ICNZ) is a representative body established in 1895 to represent fire and general insurance companies. We are governed by a Board of 10 members, appointed annually at the AGM.

Our members accept the risks of over NZ$1 trillion of New Zealand’s assets and liabilities. The Council also performs an important role in informing and educating consumers about key insurance issues and risks.

Ko Wai Mātou:

Ko Te Kāhui Inihua o Aotearoa (Te Kāhui) he māngai mō ngā roopu inihua-matua me ngā roopu inihua-ā-ahi o Aotearoa, ā i tīmata ai Te Kāhui i te tau 1895.  

E whakahaerehia ana mātou e tētahi poari. Tekau ngā mema poari e pōti ana i ngā hui-a-tau i a tau, i a tau. Kōtahi tiriona tāra te wāriu o te korowai inihua e horahia nei e ā mātou mema ki runga i a Aotearoa.

He mahi nui anō tā Te Kāhui ki te whakaako i te iwi o Aotearoa mō ngā take inihua,
