Protecta have chosen to use Allianz Australia Insurance Limited (Incorporated in Australia) trading as Allianz New Zealand as the underwriter of your insurance policy. Allianz Australia Insurance Limited operates throughout New Zealand as part of the Allianz Group, one of the world's most renowned insurers and financial service providers.  At the top of the international group is the holding company, Allianz SE, with it's head office in Munich.  In the fiscal year 2011, the Allianz Group achieved total revenues of over 103.6 billion Euros.

An overseas policyholder preference applies. Under Australian law, if Allianz Australia Insurance Limited is wound up, its assets in Australia must be applied to its Australian liabilities before they can be applied to overseas liabilities. To this extent, New Zealand policyholders may not be able to rely on Allianz Australia Insurance Limited’s Australian assets to satisfy New Zealand liabilities.
