We’re all about celebrating life – with you

Celebrating life isn’t a marketing slogan for Asteron Life – it’s the heart and soul of who we are as a company.

We know how busy you are – but it’s worth sparing a few minutes to see what makes us so different.

We’ve been helping Kiwis for quite some time – with our roots tracing back all the way to 1878. Most Kiwis will have known us originally as Royal and Sun Alliance.

We pride ourselves on not being what you’d normally expect from a life insurance company.

We focus on the positive – it’s all about grabbing life with both hands, laughing till your sides hurt. Climbing a mountain or starting a family. It’s seizing your chances. And simply loving what you’re doing. Whatever you’re doing.

To us, life insurance is all about getting the most out of today – knowing that if things go wrong, you’ve got plans in place.

We’re also an important part of Suncorp New Zealand, a leading general and life insurance provider. Suncorp New Zealand is part of Suncorp Group, which has over 9 million customers and A$96 billion in assets. Good to know when it comes to claims time.

Our customers are everything

We get what makes people tick. What’s important to them. And how to live life to the full. Our customers are the lifeblood of our business; and everything we do as a company reflects that.

From our friendly service, our smart insurance policies and our clear and simple communication style (for which we were given the WriteMark award). Working closely with impartial advisers, we look after your best interests every step of the way.

“We’re all different, but there is one thing that is universal to all of us – we all want to live life to the full. At Asteron Life, helping our customers celebrate life is the cornerstone of what we do.”
