Conclusion of New Zealand project – Christchurch earthquake claims

At the end of last year, we concluded over 5 years’ involvement in New Zealand, supporting local and international insurers/reinsurers on the 2010/2011 earthquakes which destroyed much of Christchurch and the surrounding areas. Bev FitzGerald visited the Asia Pacific Region, in particular New Zealand itself and Australia, to thank all our various clients for their business and much-appreciated support on this project, probably the largest we have ever undertaken. At the same time, this was an opportunity to thank our team for their tremendous work ‘on the ground’ in NZ.

There are many lessons to be learned from our own and insurers’ experiences in NZ. During this trip, Bev gave a presentation highlighting these lessons to a conference in Kuala Lumpur attended by 30 local insurers.
