Spanning five successful years, the relationship has seen Fidelity Life representing nib health insurance products in the New Zealand adviser market and supporting advisers through joint quoting and application capabilities.

The companies said, with significant changes under way in the financial services sector, the time was right to explore new opportunities to help more New Zealanders get the benefit of insurance protection.

“Fidelity Life and nib have enjoyed five successful years together but the changes underway in the sector mean we need to think about things differently. We’ll consider what this decision might mean for our approach to health insurance, as part of our goal of setting advisers and ourselves up for a sustainable and successful future, with the customer at the centre of everything we do," said Fidelity Life chief distribution officer Adrian Riminton.

nib chief executive in New Zealand Rob Hennin said the relationship had been successful and mutually beneficial.

"We’ve been able to establish strong relationships with advisers, reinvigorate our products and build our service offering through tools such as the First Choice network, mynib and more,” he said.

“Our focus is now on the future where we remain committed to supporting the adviser market and will increase our assistance to advisers to ensure their clients access health cover that protects them and their families."
