At Zurich Australia & New Zealand, we apply global strength to solving local needs and are passionate about helping customers understand and protect themselves against risk. Our customers include individuals, small businesses, mid-sized and large companies, as well as multinational corporations.
Our Australian story dates back to 1921, when the Commonwealth General Assurance Corporation Ltd (CGA) was incorporated in New South Wales. In 1961, CGA became part of the Zurich Insurance Group. Our Australian business has since grown significantly, employing more than 1600 people across Australia and New Zealand who share our commitment to always placing our customers' needs at the center of our business.
On 1 June 2019, ANZ’s life and consumer credit insurance business, OnePath Life was formally acquired by Zurich. This created one of Australia’s largest life insurers, with a combined Australian heritage of more than 200 years.
