About Avon Insurance Brokers
Understanding your unique commercial insurance needs is our business
Avon Insurance Brokers was established in 1969 through the merger of several smaller broking companies. We are 100% locally owned, and provide insurance broking, financial management, risk management and general consulting services to an extended client base, throughout New Zealand, from our office in Ohoka, North Canterbury.
As a member of the NZBrokers Group, we extend our activities throughout both Islands, and through this association we have direct access to place business into offshore underwriters where this is appropriate. The insurance market is constantly changing, and there may be a time in the future where it would be appropriate to consider placing all or part of your insurance portfolio offshore to ensure that it remains competitive. Should this be a consideration, we have full access to the necessary markets, to ensure that your future options are not limited in any way.
We have the resources and experience to manage all types of insurance. Expertise is particularly evident in the commercial property, and liability areas that represent very real financial exposures to business operations in New Zealand. The extensive experience of Avon Insurance Brokers has also resulted in heavy transport and fleet operators obtaining the maximum benefit from their insurance program.
Our formula for success within a competitive market place is quite simple. The provision of a professional and efficient customer service is given the highest priority. To this end, we have invested considerable resources in the areas of staff training and development, computer information systems, and the establishment of favorable underwriting agreements.
Led by managing director Allan Daly, our senior staff have extensive backgrounds in the insurance industry, with over 100 years combined experience. We also employ our own support staff who are well trained and have varying levels of insurance industry experience.
We operate the latest in available computer information systems. The development of these systems is an ongoing process, and will enable us to meet our commitments to customer services and processing efficiency.
In servicing our large client base, we have developed strong working relationships with all the major Insurance Underwriters. This has enabled us to offer greater benefits to clients, in terms of both policy wordings and premium savings. This underwriter network also includes access to overseas insurance markets, which proves very important when servicing larger commercial clients.
