AMP started in the mid-1800s, a time when people in New Zealand and Australia were at high risk of injury and disease. Times were tough, with many working in dangerous jobs. There was no social welfare or pension and if a main wage earner was injured, died, or simply grew too old to work, it could be extremely hard for their families. A small group of concerned community leaders recognised this and looked for a good way to provide financial security for people. They established the Australian Mutual Provident Society (AMP), and AMP was born.
We began our proud history of providing life insurance policies in New Zealand in 1854. The population was less than 100,000 and the New Zealand Parliament sat in its present form for the first time. Our customers were mainly miners and farmers and AMP was a part of their communities, ready and willing to lend a hand when it was needed. We continue to hold this strong community-focused ethos.
AMP has grown into a highly efficient large-scale organisation. In 2011, AMP joined forces with AXA Asia Pacific Holdings – a company founded on very similar principles to AMP with both companies sharing a passion for quality financial advice and for the way good advice can help change people’s lives for the better. We now provide even more Kiwis with financial security and the opportunity to look forward to a better tomorrow.
