We've changed our name to Gallagher 

Gallagher has been our parent company since 2014 and we are proud to be part of one of the world's top three insurance brokerage, consulting and risk management firms. 

By becoming Gallagher we move closer to our global family. You get the benefits of global connections and expertise combined with local understanding and support.

Our New Zealand insurance broking business is still run by two of the original founders, Steve Lockwood and Carl O'Shea.

We're still the same people with the same commitment to sorting your insurance and helping you at claims time.

Our company

At Gallagher, we’ve been helping to protect what’s important to people and businesses for more than 95 years.

Gallagher is one of the top three insurance brokerage and risk management companies in the world, with a network that provides services in more than 130 countries.

Previously known as Crombie Lockwood in New Zealand, we have a long history of helping New Zealanders with their insurance needs.  Our local business, established in 1978, is still led by two of our Kiwi founders, Steve Lockwood and Carl O’Shea.

We help Kiwis face their future with confidence

As one of the leading insurance broking companies in New Zealand, we arrange business, rural, personal and life and health insurance on behalf of around 160,000 clients. 

Our size and scale give us a significant advantage when negotiating premiums, terms and claims on clients’ behalf. In particular, Gallagher’s global network and reputational strength help us to secure more cover options and competitive pricing from a wide range of global insurers.

How we help you

With our specialist expertise and knowledge of the insurance market, we can arrange the right cover at a price right for you. 

  • We work with the New Zealand and international insurance markets on your behalf to identify and arrange the right policies for you;
  • We clearly explain policy details so you understand what you are covered for and important details that may impact a claim;
  • We review your insurance programme as your needs change to keep your cover up to date;
  • We guide you through the claims process and advocate on your behalf when needed, to help reach a good outcome.
