Other Info:

Hollard Australia is a member of the international Hollard Insurance Group, which includes businesses in Australia, throughout Africa, in the United States, the United Kingdom and South East Asia. Hollard provides a wide range of insurance products and services to more than 6.5 million policyholders worldwide. The company currently employs over 1,500 people and holds assets exceeding A$1.7 billion. 

The Hollard Insurance Group was formed in 1980 to underwrite self-insurance programs for large corporate clients and banks. Since then it has steadily grown to become the largest independent insurance and investment group in South Africa, and now offers a broad range of life and general insurance products directly to retail customers and through specialised intermediaries. 

The Hollard Insurance Group attributes this success to a strong spirit of innovation, unyielding integrity and a passion for developing long-term, mutually rewarding relationships. By combining these values with careful underwriting, Hollard has built a powerful asset base and significant shareholder capital. 

Hollard entered the Australian market in 1999 with the same spirit and enthusiasm that make our parent company so successful. Our vision is to build an enduring business by partnering with leading insurance intermediaries and by delighting our customers with quality products and outstanding service. Our Sydney-based business is APRA approved and audited by KPMG.  

Thousands of Australians are already on board. To date, we have directly covered more than 150,000 Australians with our Home and Contents, Motor, Landlord and Life products, and thousands more through our wholesale umbrella of specialised products such as sports insurance, construction insurance and personal accident insurance through our select partners. We are fully committed to steadily growing our presence in Australia. 

Real Insurance® is Hollard's innovative retail insurance brand. Real Insurance is the only insurance brand in Australia to offer the Real BonusTM - 10% of premiums back in cash to our customers who haven't had a claim with us for three years in a row. That's real money in customers' pockets on top of the already competitive rates across our product range.  

Most recently, Hollard launched Pay As You Drive, Australia's first pay by kilometre car insurance that's already getting industry recognition by winning Best General Insurance Product from Australian Banking and Finance Magazine. 

Some of Hollard's brands include MECON, Nautilus, Petsure, Real Insurance, Real Pay As You Drive, Sportscover and Transcorp.
