    QBE Insurance

    From the Kiwi Gun Blog
    https://kiwigunblog.wordpress.com/20...acks-shooters/
    Effective 1 October 2018, QBE will no longer insure customers whose turnover is more than 50% derived from the manufacture and/or sales of firearms.

    In addition, QBE will stop insuring any organisation, association or club which provides permits to own, purchase, carry or use firearms, or whose primary purpose is to support the right to bear firearms, or which conducts or otherwise supports activities involving the use of firearms. This includes shooting clubs and Political parties that support the use of firearms.

    Why are we making this change?

    At QBE we firmly believe that we have a responsibility to be a good corporate citizen in the communities and countries where we operate. This change is important to ensure that QBE is engaged in underwriting consistent with the Principles of Sustainable Insurance, the avoidance of reputational risk, and the increasing investor and societal concerns over the proliferation and use of firearms today.

    Hard to do for some but if able cancel insurance with QBE and tell them why.
    Get more with someone else first of course.
    Sounds like an overseas response and the local supplier is following suit.

    Yes, we have had a bad run with them lately. Bussiness related, not firearms.

    I’m about to shop around for a few new policies, and our broker may get a talk to, to indicate that insurance companies that have separatist, non inclusive, and against legal organisations & sports - ideals, should not submit proposals.

    Give or take, about a $3-4 m PA deal for a 5 year deal - 15-20m package.
    And quite seriously, these type of postrings come into the assessment of who we will go with. Not so much gun related but the wider thought process. (On a personal note, QBE are now on my shit list)

    As a member of a significant local club this greatly worries me that a business can show this level of discrimination against a significant portion of society when this portion is law abiding, vetted, licensed and FIT AND PROPER persons that the police have licensed to partake in a legal sporting activity. They are discrimination against people because of what they believe.
    We believe we are legally allowed and encouraged to members of these clubs / groups. These clubs and groups are made up of people who believe in our rights as LICENSED firearms owners.

    They would not pick on a church or religious group, nor any other portion of society such as race gender preference etc.

    I hope the bastards get hit financially really hard.

    Bill Donovan is the general manager of the New Zealand QBE. I just so happen to know where he lives, so can drop off printed or written letters that are reasonably written etc.
    Please take the time to write something.
    PM me for my postal address.

    Enough of these might get a response.

    Their loss.
    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    sounds like QBE have a hot new little spin doctor. I find it ironic how insurance companies have such high lofty statements of purpose considering a lot of their activity and practises lie around the other end of the spectrum,and its acknowledged theyre in essence a bloody law unto themselves.take ya money -shit yeah -pay out -nup mate got gorse in me pocketds -read ya contract ya mug
    insurance like bank managers,dentists ,mother in laws -a sad fact of life you really dont want to talk about,but have to .
    still cheer up folks plenty of other insurers in the sea ,not doubt happy to accept your business.
