Increase in severe weather events affecting insurance market

As more severe weather events and natural disasters are arising in New Zealand, the insurance market is having to respond to the changing risk profiles.

Expert rating agency, Canstar has highlighted that a record number of claim has been processed in the past two years. Data from the Insurance Council of New Zealand (ICNZ) revealed these types of claim cost insurers more than $226 million in 2018 alone. Reportedly, more than half of this was in the House and Contents sector.

Insurers are responding by looking more closely at certain areas in NZ, and adjusting their risk assessment. This can mean an increase in price in some areas. 

 

Overall, this highlights that price should not be only the determining factor when choosing your insurance cover. You need to ensure the cover you have is adequate and correct for your needs.
