About Us

  • Thorner General Insurances Limited is a privately-owned independent insurance financial advice provider (FAP). We have been operating since 1991 and since that time have helped numerous clients with robust insurance solutions. We can assist with all types of business and personal insurance requirements and as an independent FAP we have access to a wide range of insurance providers. To provide you with the best possible insurance and risk management, we maintain strategic partnerships with New Zealand’s leading insurers, including access to offshore insurance markets such as Lloyd’s of London.
  • All General Insurance financial advisers at Thorners are appropriately qualified and are acting on behalf of Thorner General Insurances Limited. Under NZ law they are classified as Financial Advisers and must comply with the requirements of Financial Services Legislation. This includes disclosure obligations, minimum qualifications, ongoing professional development requirements and a code of professional conduct which are set out in regulations. It confirms that you are receiving advice from a professional adviser who is authorised to provide advice on and deal in general insurance products including the ability to issue, apply for, acquire, vary, or dispose of such products to our clients.
