Founded in 1994 by current Managing Director Jeff Parker, and the late Jim Hurford, Hurford Parker has a wealth of experience in both Underwriting and Broking in both the General and Life Insurance industry in New Zealand.
Hurford Parker commenced business, and continues today, with a view of providing a viable alternative to the non-New Zealand owned insurance broking businesses – where there is a “face” to every discussion.
Hurford Parker was a foundation member of both Brokernet New Zealand Ltd, formed in 1997, and subsequently NZbrokers Management Limited formed in 2015. NZbrokers Management Ltd is a strong group of independent New Zealand Brokers.Collectively the Group employs more than 550 staff who between them place insurance business with local and international Insurers for 140,000 clients, with premiums in excess of $520 million. NZbrokers was formed to deliver additional client benefits for exclusive use by Member Brokers, including the development of exclusive Insurance products.
