EXPECT THE BEST,
PREPARE FOR THE WORST

Obsidian Insurance is driven by a husband and wife team, with over 20 years of combined market experience and powered by the strong belief ‘we can do better’. All too often, we would see clients be seen as numbers and income, solutions be compromised by corporate limitations and insurer bias which went against every core value we hold close. And here, Obsidian Insurance was born.

Obsidian Insurance is a locally owned company based in the Bay of Plenty but has the ambition and technology to service all regions throughout New Zealand. We place a lot of value in person-to-person relationships, from new business to claim settlement, one team for a seamless, transparent experience the whole way along. We make it our business to get to know yours.

As an Insurance Advisernet member, you get the best of both worlds. Local service, specialised knowledge, skill and care, as well as the benefits of market leading products, competitive rates and additional policy benefits that comes with power in numbers.
