Through the decisions and actions we take, we strive to make a positive impact on the sustainability of our business, our local community, and the environment. In addition to supporting our local community, we are proud supporters of the Insurance Advisernet Foundation.


The Insurance Advisernet Foundation was established as part of our ongoing commitment to our people, our clients and the wider communities in which we work and serve. Each year, the Foundation supports local Australian and New Zealand organisations that work to help change the lives of individuals, families and communities for the better.

Over the past 10 years, the Insurance Advisernet Foundation is proud to have contributed over $2.5 million to more than 30 different charities. We now aim to donate over $400,000 each year through a variety of community fundraising initiatives. By working closely with our staff, advisers and insurance underwriting partners, our collective goal is to leave an important social legacy for generations to come.

Over 98% of our funds are distributed to charities which means less than 2% of our costs are running expenses!
