Insurance & Finance

Representing 7% of New Zealand’s GDP, the insurance and finance sectors provide the means for transacting labour, goods and services, for mobilising savings, for allocating capital funds, and for managing risk. Critical to the operation of these sectors and to New Zealanders’ confidence in them are the prudential, market-conduct, and other regulatory systems that underpin their operations.

MartinJenkins has a deep understanding of insurance and actuarial principles, including how they can be applied to public-policy areas such as social welfare and risk in the building and housing sectors. We also have considerable experience in the regulation of the insurance and finance sectors.
