Ben's Introduction - July

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all well.

It promises to be an interesting and challenging new Financial Year.  Firstly, Insurance Australia Group (IAG) has now completed its acquisition of Wesfarmers Insurance Australian Underwriting (WIAU).  For more information on what this will mean for you please contact your Business Development Manager.

We are also helping drought affected farmers, so make sure you read the article on our drought relief initiatives to see how your rural clients can benefit.  In addition to this, now is the perfect time to think about Crop insurance – CGU started offering After Harvest cover last year and we’ve now implemented this feature through CropInsure.

If you’re in the ACT there have been some changes in stamp duty that we’d like to draw your attention to.

As always,  for the latest news about what is happening at CGU, please make sure you take a look at our website.
