Where We Come From

Its founding principles are a critical element as to how aibGROUP goes about its business. With its origins spanning back over 30 years the company remains closely associated with highly respected former members of the insurance industry, Gary Solomon and Kerry August. In 2002 a new company CFS Risk Services Limited was formed and led by Michael Blackmore and Gary Solomon. Membership of IBANZ was confirmed before Humphries Insurance Brokers was annexed in 2004.

In the same year the company gained access to the Brokerweb Group which ensured a voice at insurance company head offices as well as providing enhanced policy documentation. In the same year Corporate Broker John Blackmore come on board and then in 2008 the company moved to its present location at 22 Kings Crescent, Lower Hutt.

Matt Roberts joined the company as a shareholder/director and one-year later the new brand of Allfinanz brought together many aspects of the financial service industry. Allfinanz Risk catered for the general insurance business and further expanded in 2011 merging with August Insurance Brokers. This was a significant merger/acquisition for Allfinanz bringing together two very like-minded companies which shared similar systems and client service standards.

In 2013 Allfinanz opened an Auckland operation by amalgamating the business activities of All Insurance Services and then in 2014 taking over the company's operations. This provided the opportunity to rebrand with an exciting new image which captured the existing business while setting the scene for an exciting future. The insurance sector will continue to face challenges but aibGROUP, with a great team of people, will continue to meet and handle these challenges for its clients.

At the same time the company will address the needs of its valued customers and partners with that openness and effectiveness essential for any business.
