In 1996, 43 privately owned insurance brokerages joined forces, united in the belief that quality advice and service were paramount in the insurance industry. With that Steadfast was born, an Australian owned and operated enterprise. Today, Steadfast are the largest general insurance broker network in Australia and New Zealand, comprising over 340 brokerages, with over 1000 offices across metropolitan and regional areas.
Steadfast are an ASX 200 listed company, a market leader in the industry and an innovator in insurance broking. True to their original charter, Steadfast exists to drive an insurance broker network that provides unique professional services and advice to its clients. Steadfast generated over A$6.1 billion in sales in 2014-15 and the network looks after over 2 million policies for Australian and New Zealand businesses.
How Steadfast’s strength benefits you as a customer
Customised policies not publicly available
Anyone can sell you off-the-shelf insurance but Steadfast brokers have access to customised policies developed by Steadfast directly with the insurers, written exclusively for the network. Steadfast brokers are able to offer policies with greater coverage than a standard product, at market competitive pricing.
Real time market comparisons
Steadfast has developed innovative technology which allows our brokers to quickly and thoroughly assess insurance products on offer. Virtual Underwriter for example, allows comprehensive comparisons on coverage, benefits, limitations and price of policies available from a range of insurers.
Championing your claims
If you make a claim and there happens to be an issue, your Steadfast broker can call on the power of the Steadfast to escalate the matter. Through solid relationships with its insurers, Steadfast has a depth of contact with the right decision-makers to get your voice heard and will champion well-evidenced claims on your behalf in an effort to achieve positive claims outcomes.
Choice of policies from over 150 insurers
We are the biggest network of insurance brokers in Australia and New Zealand and have partnerships with over 150 insurance providers locally and internationally. Which means we can find what’s right for you: from general business insurance cover to the most niche products.
Professional, qualified brokers
Steadfast brokers access a range of tools and services developed by Steadfast for our broker network. Broking tools, education resources and technical assistance help keep the professional credentials of our brokers current.
