hanging insurance companies can be a real pain;
whether it be your personal or business policies
the time taken can almost make it worth putting in
the too hard basket, but this is not the way to go for
Times change, your business changes and at the very least
policies need to be reviewed.
Understanding words, definitions and industry jargon
(terminology) can be enough to send one into a meltdown.
Without negating the need to read the policies and the small
print, below you will find some helpful information when
looking to change policies. If your current or intended insurer
does not tick all or most of the boxes below, it is certainly
worth having Newspack review your insurance needs as they
arise, or even beforehand.
The ANF embarked on an insurance tender process over 18
months ago, the result was clear that the Newspack policy
was in most instances the best value for money, although
insurance is not just about price.
Newspack is a brand supported by Jardine Lloyd Thompson
(JLT), a leading global provider of insurance, reinsurance and
employee benefits related advice, brokerage and associated
JLT’s proposition is built upon its deep specialist knowledge,
client advocacy, tailored advice and service excellence. JLT
place their clients first, champion innovative thinking and
expect to be judged based on their results.
Insurance is mostly about after sales service. The kind of help
you receive when it’s time to make a claim, the kind of help
you receive when there is a dispute with the insurer.
So why Newspack
1. Newspack is industry-owned and delivers the appropriate
tailored cover at competitive prices.
2. Newspack profits are reinvested into the newsagency
3. Newspack can arrange insurance for all of your and your
staff members' business and personal needs.
4. Newspack make it easy, convenience is the key and
Newspack can arrange for you to package all your
insurances together and pay your premium in easy
Why is the ANF confident in the Newspack
The above four points are really nice to know but they are also
in your best interest. The four items were not enough to sway
our decision toward Newspack and JLT; some of the key areas
that really ensured this was the best option for the newsagent
a. JLT offers all new policies the option to have their
new policy compared with their old policy to highlight
any differences there may be in your new policy. (This
transparent approach removes the guesswork when
switching insurance policies and takes away that feeling
of this is too good to be true.)
We suggest you always take this option.
b. JLT have a defined dispute process that assists our
members should there ever be a dispute with a claim, this
three step process allows the dispute to escalate through
JLT > insurance company > financial service ombudsman.
2. Product innovation
JLT has the capability to assist you and your team for all
insurance needs from travel, pet, health, life, motor vehicle
and leisure craft insurance. The innovation arises as JLT and
Newspack developed this offer for your customers as well to
ensure you are rewarded for referring your customers to enjoy
the same protection as you do from JLT.
3. Industry value add
a. JLT and the ANF have already commenced working
on a complimentary service in relation to preventative
measures for work place incidents and a dedicated
return-to-work (RTW) coordinator for members should an
incident ever occur—most people are unaware that they
have the choice when it comes to RTW services.
b. JLT and the ANF are working on a subsidised RTW
program providing members the opportunity to support
their community by assisting an injured worker from
another industry retrain into the newsagent channel.
c. JLT is providing complimentary information in relation
to the ANF Work Health and Safety system and the ANF
Learning Management system for members’ benefit.
4. Premium pool
As the Newspack premium pool grows so does the value
for its members. This can mean anything from additional
complimentary coverages to reduced annual premiums—the
larger the Newspack pool grows, the larger the opportunity for
members of Newspack.
So now it’s time to check and compare—call your dedicated
Newspack account manager Tania on 1300 852 977.
Here’s what two newsagents recently had to say about their
transition to Newspack.
“Just wanted to say thanks for the information re Newspack
Insurance Broking. We have saved just short of $1000 on our
Business Insurance; almost unbelievable.”
Robert, Oatlands Newsagency, Tasmania
“I used the insurance you suggested and excellent price and
good service. Highly recommended.”
