Key Highlights
• In July 2016, according to a report published by the New Zealand Institute of Economic Research (NZIER), Kiwi life insurers have opportunities to move away from commissions-based distribution models to lower cost distribution channels. According to the NZIER report, the 14 main life insurers operating in the segment collectively spend NZD431.0 million (US$292.0 million) per year on commission payments to advisers and brokers who sell their products. The commission payouts are equivalent to 23% of the insurer's premium revenues, and account for over half of their distribution expenses.
• In April 2016, the Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) announced plans to review and revise the Insurance (Prudential Supervision) Act over 2016–2017. The objectives of the review include ensuring a sound and efficient insurance industry in the country, and to promote public trust in the industry.
• In January 2016, the Fair Insurance Code was released by the Insurance Council of New Zealand (ICNZ) to establish high standards of service and to check claims being resolved by insurers. All members of the ICNZ must operate according to the code.
• Individual life insurance remained the largest sub-segment during the review period; it accounted for 92.7% of the segment's gross written premium in 2016, of which the term life sub-category accounted for 69.1% of the category's gross written premium.
