A stolen car he had owned for just seven days and the subsequent nightmare insurance claims process, catapulted Stewart Wright out of the office stationery industry and into the insurance advice business.
“I was so disgusted that I just knew there had to be a better way to achieve positive outcomes for people,” says Stewart, who makes it his mission to use his knowledge and experience to help people reach better insurance decisions.
But he’s not an insurance broker.
“An insurance broker approaches multiple suppliers looking for best price, and can be influenced by things like commission.
“We classify ourselves as insurance advisers because our primary role is to offer advice that helps the client get the best house, home and contents or fire and general insurance that is best for their own circumstances – whether business or personal.”
In particular, Stewart is a specialist adviser in AMP, Vero New Zealand and Protecta insurance products. As such, he undertakes to:
- Understand your personal needs and circumstances
- Locate a fire and general insurance product most suited to your needs
- Educate you about the product
- Monitor your evolving needs according to your changing circumstances
- Advocate on your behalf come claim time, for a speedy and satisfactory outcome for you
For those weighing up whether or not they need insurance, Stewart refers to Theodore Roosevelt who once said:
“In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing.”
