Auckland, 27 April 2022 – Kiwi consumers have voted AA Insurance the Reader’s Digest Most Trusted General Insurer for the 12th consecutive year.

“We’re honoured that AA Insurance is one of only four brands to have earned this recognition,” says Richard Park, AA Insurance’s GM of Marketing, Product and Pricing. “We are in great company alongside well-known brands Whittaker’s, Sanitarium and Dettol.”

Now in its 23rd year, the annual Reader’s Digest Survey looks at 70 categories of products and services across a broad range of industries, uncovering Kiwis attitudes and views on the most trustworthy brands. Over 1,700 New Zealanders selected three of their most trusted brands for each category and rated those brands on the 1-10 scale for trust. AA Insurance was voted number one for its general insurance of car, home, and contents.

According to Reader’s Digest, being voted a Trusted Brand enhances a brand’s status and assures consumers they are choosing a reputable brand. A 2020 consumer shopping habit study conducted by Catalyst Research showed 87% of consumers found the Trusted Brand Emblem positively impacted their buying decisions.

“To be voted New Zealand’s most trusted general insurer 12 years in row is a testament to the hard mahi and dedication of all our people, even during these difficult times,” says Richard. “For us, it’s about holding true to our core principles and values, always being there for our customers, and being focused on doing the right thing for them.”
