The first insurer to set up in Australia was UK-based Alliance Insurance in 1833. They sold the first life insurance policy that year to the former Attorney-General of Van Diemen's Land, Joseph Tice Gellibrand for £2,000 of cover and a one off premium of £60.
A lot has changed since then. The breadth and complexity of the insurance solutions that we provide today are an indication of the needs people have to spread their risk from business and personal loss of property and goods, to a wide variety of other areas such as health, loss of income, travel, funeral as well as some niche areas that Hollard covers today such as pet, taxi, construction, engineering, marine and bicycle insurances- to mention a few.
