How we started

SBS Insurance started as a specialist life insurance company providing life and disability insurance exclusively to SBS Bank.

Our focus has always been on providing an advice-based service for our customers while keeping premiums as low as we can.

Demand for our services among SBS customers quickly grew and we formed partnerships to provide car, house, contents, boat, and travel insurance too.

Today, every New Zealander can access personal insurance through SBS Insurance directly, and benefit from our friendly advice-based service.
