Our story

From small beginnings in regional Victoria, we have grown from a humble broking firm to one of Australia’s leading privately-owned insurance brokerages.

Our journey has seen us stay true to a simple promise, and that is to be here for our clients. It’s that simple.
Our story starts in 1983 Echuca, a Victorian town on the banks of the Murray River. Echuca was born of enterprising spirit, where the dream of a single small punt to ferry both people and goods across the Murray grew, in a few short decades, into an industrial epicentre and home of Australia's largest inland port.

Although the time of steam-driven paddleboats is now long past, there are enduring themes of a hard work, community and an ingrained entrepreneurial spirit that have taken us from a single office in Anstruther Street, Echuca that employed a modest number of staff to a network of 11 offices and a national network of over 50 Authorised Partners. Today we employ over 180 people across industry specialists to support staff and are well on our way to becoming Australia’s largest privately-owned insurance brokerage.

Regardless of our size or how strong we are in numbers, we haven’t changed who we are. That genuine, hardworking rural spirit of 1983 lives on in us today as we remain firmly committed to supporting regional communities, small business owners and everyday Australians with their insurance and risk mitigation needs.

This year we celebrate 35 years, and our journey is only just beginning.
