But only about half of New Zealanders have life insurance. We're committed to ensuring more New Zealanders have access to independent financial advice they can trust and innovative insurance solutions that meet their needs now and into the future.
Being New Zealand-owned is an important point of difference for us and we're committed to supporting community projects across New Zealand. Fidelity Life is a proud supporter of Leukaemia and Blood Cancer NZ.
In 2018 we secured a cornerstone $100 million investment from the New Zealand Super Fund to drive further innovation and growth. Ultimately, our goal is to set our business up for a sustainable and successful future, with the customer at the centre of everything we do.
