    So it’s all honky dory then …..no change to guidance and dividend still coming

    Irrespective of worrying how much the floods are going to cost Tower or whether there are bullish or bearish patterns on a chart we should as the man from Tower says 'our thoughts are with all those affected by these floods.'

    Does seem to be a real mess down there

    A fairly damning report on many NZ Insurers here:

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/business/125...rance-industry

    Over-charging, poor-value policies identified in FMA review of house, car and contents insurance industry


    Bolingford said: “New Zealanders rely on insurance to protect what they value most. Customers rightly expect to be treated fairly, have their interests properly considered, and have access to products that are fit for purpose.”

    She said only two of the 42 house, contents, car, business, travel and health insurers reviewed had done what the FMA had asked of them in the review, which began in 2019.

    They were IAG, which owned the State, AMI and NZI brands, and Medical Assurance Society.


    The report said several insurers had large-scale remediation activity under way as a result of the review and that would mean refunds for thousands of customers.

    Bolingford said it was very hard for customers to understand how their house, car and contents premiums were calculated, so it was disappointing to find insurers’ systems not identifying overcharging.

    She gave the example of a couple in their 80s discovering they had been charged double premiums by their insurer for two years, resulting in them overpaying by $800

    The FMA did find evidence that some insurers proactively identified overcharging, and fixed it.

    “These issues were mostly related to weak systems and processes, poor value and legacy products, and lack of ongoing monitoring of suitability throughout the product lifecycle,” Bolingford said.

    https://www.nzx.com/announcements/376349 A bit of good news in an otherwise waterlogged couple of weeks. I'd say Trademe brings Tower quite a bit of business and looks lime more to come.
