Clarification regarding NBR article


Download this press release

Auckland, 18 September 2015 – An article printed in today’s National Business Review (NBR) magazine with the headline “Vero subsidiary ordered to pay up” has created confusion for some. 

The article refers to “Vero subsidiary AAI” but the court case which is being reported on relates to an Australian company called “AAI Limited”.  AAI Limited should not be confused with AA Insurance Limited, which is a joint venture between the NZ Automobile Association and Vero Insurance New Zealand Limited. 

Both AAI Limited and Vero Insurance New Zealand Ltd are part of the Suncorp Group of Companies.

AAI Limited is an Australian company and part of the Suncorp Group rather than a subsidiary of Vero.
