EVENTCOVER was born out of the necessity to have an underwriting agency on the ground in NEW ZEALAND who fully understood 

and was ingrained in the NZ events industry.

Having worked as the Partnerships Manager for a major corporate broking house, Stuart Hartley felt the need to fill a gap in the market.  Having previously worked as the Official supplier to the New Zealand Event Association (NZEA), Stuart has taken this experience and joined Sage Partners Ltd, an underwriting agency and Lloyds Coverholder, to create EVENTCOVER.

EVENTCOVER'S underwriting capacity is provided by Markel Syndicate Management Ltd - Syndicate 3000 who are recognised as market leaders in the classes of Event Cancellation and Non-Apperance and are rated A (Excellent) by A.M.Best.

As a specialist underwriting agency, EVENTCOVER are able to provide a true understanding of the New Zealand events industry.

Our appetite is wide and we can write the majority of risks 100%.
