Zurich and OnePath Life unite

As many of you may already know, Zurich’s acquisition of ANZ’ life insurance business, OnePath Life was successfully completed on 1 June 2019.


This milestone sees the creation of one of Australia’s largest life insurance leaders, one with a combined Australian heritage of more 140 years; one that continues to put customers at the heart of its business, and one with a longstanding and ongoing belief in the value of advice and the professionals who provide it. We currently serve more than two million customers and pay more than $1 billion per annum in claims.

While we are going through the transition phase for the next few months, our focus on a seamless transition means there will be no change to key processes, relationships or contact details.

Importantly, our focus on delivering the highest service standards remains unwavering, and you should notice no change to the way we support you or your clients.

Furthermore, Zurich intends to invest further in both brands. You have told us that maintaining choice is paramount, and with the award-winning OneCare range now complementing Zurich’s Wealth Protection, Active and Sumo offerings, advisers can access the broadest choice of life insurance solutions in the market.

We will continue to work with you to develop relevant and competitive products to meet yours and your client’s needs.  As always, we will continue to engage with you to achieve this goal.

For more information please refer to our media release here.

I am also excited to mention that we have launched our health and wellness offering, Zurich LiveWell. I am a wellness advocate, so the launch Zurich LiveWell is something that I am very proud of and demonstrates our strong focus on delivering better wellness outcomes for all Australians. This edition contains important information regarding how your clients can use the program which spans across the three core wellness pillars of body, mind and community. And while we know improved health and wellbeing brings its own rewards, a little extra motivation can make a big difference.

And finally, As we continue to look forward and invest in areas that will assist advisers in completing their educational requirements we have developed an on-demand webinar co-hosted by Grad Mentor’s founder, Alisdair Barr and Zurich Life‘s Risk Strategy Specialist, Adam Crabbe which seeks to uncover the secrets to balancing work as an adviser and formal study.

As always, if you have any questions regarding any of our exciting new offerings, please reach out to a Zurich BDM, happy reading.

Kristine Brooks.

It’s time to check - your client’s insurance in super policy may be at risk of cancellation.

New legislation comes into effect from July 1 2019 which is designed to protect the balances of superannuation accounts for members where there has been no contribution or rollover for a period of 6 months or more, therefore deeming it ‘inactive’.
