Wondering why you pay your insurance premiums ?

Have you ever wondered why you keep paying your insurance premiums, when all they do is go up each year and you never make a claim?

Then watch this 3 minute video made by Sovereign about a recent claimant.

It’s sobering viewing and all too common!

Once you’ve watched it, give me a call or email to get a quote on ‘Trauma Insurance’ for yourself.

Best wishes,

Mike Bennett

In 1985, after 7 years in the banking industry in NZ & London, Mike Bennett joined the Life Insurance Industry as an adviser. In 2001 he started “Acorn Insurance & Investment Ltd” with the key principle; “to satisfy the insurance and investment needs of New Zealanders with the best products and service possible”. To achieve the guiding principle of “best products and service” the “Acorn” uses various industry research tools to identify the best products and prices to meet our client’s needs. Acorn has agencies with most of New Zealand’s major insurance companies which means we are free to use whichever products best meet our client’s needs. Believing that if we get it right for our clients we will achieve win-win solutions. We also recognise that nearly all insurance solutions are a compromise between the benefits you’d like to have versus the premiums you’re prepared to pay – with this in mind we WON’T be trying to sell you more insurance than you need or want !!


  1. Hi Mike,

    That’s a great video that demonstrates the value of trauma insurance. We also have similar levels of under insurance here in Australia and it can be a struggle to educate clients on the benefits of personal insurance. Videos like this are helpful.

    • Thanks Allan, I’m glad you approve. Just for the record; I entered the insurance industry in Oz back in 1985 when I lived in Melbourne.

      At that time trauma insurance was just evolving and Dr Marius Barnard (remember him?) came to Oz to promote the better understanding of the trauma insurance he helped create when he performed the first heart transplant in South Africa!!
      Fortunately I got to met the man and have been a strong advocate for trauma insurance ever since!!

      Best wishes, Mike Bennett
