ASB Insurance Review
ASB is owned by Commonwealth Bank of Australia. I was with them for a number of years before I moved to BNZ, then finally ANZ. As mentioned else ware on this site ASB were quite pushy for me to buy insurance from them when getting pre-approved for a mortgage, but I insisted I can do it direct with a brand like Tower, AA Insurance, AMI, Initio, or State.
ASB offers home, contents, car, life, business, travel, and health insurance. You’ll see further up on this page that ASB sells these on behalf of other insurance brands such as IAG, AIA, and Cigna.
Are the policies any good? You’ll need to read the policy documents to make that judgement call, but since their car home and contents policies are underwritten by IAG, who own AMI and State, it’s probably safe to assume you’ll be in safe hands.
If you own a rental you’re looking to insure through ASB, take a look at ASB Landlord’s Protection. You can add it to your ASB Home Insurance policy.
ASB have their own 0800 number for insurance claims and information, so we assume this means that you’ll deal with ASB when you have any issues. This is unlike some other banks that sell insurance, where you call a different company to manage the policies and make claims (essentially the bank will sell you the policies, then not speak to you again about those policies. They collect the commission and move on).
