Who we are

A part of Australia's commercial landscape since we first started in Queensland more than 132 years ago, QBE is now listed on the ASX and is one of the world's leading insurers and reinsurers.

In Australia we provide one of the broadest product ranges of any insurer and offer all major lines of general insurance cover for personal and commercial risks. From home and contents, motor and travel insurance to cover for universities, cargo ships and wineries, we aim to make things possible in the communities in which we operate.

At a global level, QBE Insurance Group is responsible for providing protection to a diverse range of assets and activities, from airports and air-fleets in the US and UK, to construction activities in Hong Kong to bustling container ports in Malaysia.

Locally we helped construct Christchurch's transitional ‘Cardboard Cathedral’ following the catastrophic 2011 earthquakes to help revive and restore the iconic 19th century cathedral we insured.

We also provide 24/7 worldwide medical and emergency assistance to our travel insurance customers so we are there for them no matter where they are in the world in their time of need.
