The technology industry is vital to our economy – it is New Zealand’s fastest growing sector, our third largest export earner and the highest per-capita earning industry in the country*.  It is an industry that is sometimes said to thrive on change. Issues like climate change, corporate governance, and cost cutting offer developers opportunities at the same time as they challenge those directly affected.  Cloud computing, online and console entertainment, and the roll out of Ultra-Fast Broadband are among the evolving changes that give us further optimism about the future of this sector.

In this fast-moving sector, it’s crucial that businesses take control of their insurable risks. This means protecting their people and operations from losses and disruptions, but also the new exposures faced when exporting or selling products and programmes overseas, and protecting and defending intellectual property, amongst others.

We offer deep industry knowledge and experience and products that can be tailored to the unique needs of technology companies. With offices in more countries than any other global insurer, we can help New Zealand companies as they expand overseas.  We’re already wherever you want to trade.
