PSC Connect is going from strength to strength, growing its affiliated broker network, investing heavily in new tech and additional staff.

As the PSC Insurance Group continues with its impressive growth in Australia, the UK and Asia with over $2.5b in gross premiums, their New Zealand business is no different enjoying over 15% growth in the last 12 months. 

“There’s a lot of satisfaction in working with and supporting our existing Member Brokers in building their own quality broking businesses and assets for themselves “ says Director Dave Penfold

“Our business has been with PSC Connect since we started in 2016 and in that time, with the support of Dave and the wider team, we’ve been able to grow our business to a team of ten Insurance experts and specialists.   PSC has the ability and contacts to access underwriters both locally and globally to make sure our clients are looked after, a huge asset to our business and clients.” Says Jason Bayly of JB Insure.

Three new Member Brokers have recently joined the network including Ben Pattinson and his business Insurance Hub NZ Ltd based in Mangawhai, Paul MacKay of Waimea Insurance Brokers based in Nelson and Larrissa Wade and her new business Gulf Island Insurance Ltd based on Waiheke Island. 

“We’re also receiving a lot of enquiries from quality brokers wanting to start out on their own, but who are concerned about managing their own compliance and regularity obligations, for which we provide full support”

This growth has seen two new staff added to the team this year, Lance Ashton as Broker Services Manager and Olivia Chisholm as Southern Regional Manager, and a soon to be announced key role of National Sales Relationship Manager.

PSC New Zealand is implementing some market leading technology initiatives in the near future which will include, amongst other things, a platform which will provide multiple quote/bind options giving our broker network the ability to offer a professional presentation and quality advice around these options to their clients. 

 “We’ve built incredibly strong relationships with our technology partners” says Broker Services Manager Lance Ashton “and we’re excited about how these mutually beneficial relationships are going to further enhance the support we can provide to our network”

PSC NZ have also recently opened a third office, located in Christchurch. “This is another example of the investment we are making to allow us to achieve the growth we committed to over the next 4 years and beyond” says Penfold.
