OnePath Life Insurance
Although OnePath Life Insurance is a relatively new kid on the insurance block its parent company, ANZ, put its roots down here in New Zealand more than 175 years ago.
Today, ANZ operates in 32 markets across the globe and is rated among the world’s top 50 banks. ANZ is the largest banking group in New Zealand.
OnePath Life Insurance is fully owned by ANZ and has the full backing of its parent company to support all claims.
OnePath Life Insurance began as Club Life in 2001 before being rebranded.
The company focuses on life, trauma, and income insurance and holds firm to the belief in doing the right thing for their customers every time.
In other words, the company actively seeks to pay claims rather than trying to avoid paying claims.
