Our insurance partners

To provide our customers with the best possible insurance and risk management, Monument Insurance maintains strategic partnerships with New Zealand's leading insurers.

Each insurer is required by law to publish their current rating for financial strength and ability to pay claims. This rating relates purely to the insurer's financial resources. So a strong insurer rating does not necessarily indicate a greater inclination to settle claims, only their financial ability to do so.  We select insurance partners with a minimum rating of A from the main rating agencies: Standard & Poor's, AM Best, Moody's or Fitch Ratings.

We also maintain a direct presence at Lloyd's of London via Offshore Market Placements Limited (OMPL).
