The Insurance Council of New Zealand (ICNZ) is urging New Zealanders to take steps to protect their homes during the festive season.1 At Willis Towers Watson, we couldn’t agree more and believe this extends to protecting your business to ensure an enjoyable break before business recommences in 2018.

Statistics reveal that one in five Kiwis do not have contents insurance, despite burglaries being so prevalent in the holiday season. ICNZ Chief Executive Tim Grafton adds that, “Contents insurance doesn’t just cover people for theft – it’s an important part of recovering from natural disasters, fires and other unforeseen events”.2
