In 2019 Anna Dunlop-Paaka joined the team and set about expanding the range of insurance solutions available. While able to help with any area of insurance, Anna specialises in personal risk insurances including Life, Trauma and Income Protection.
We are excited to announce that Claire Dawson has recently become an Adviser as well. Along with Claire’s superior skill in managing your claim for you, Claire can now also advise you on your General Insurance needs, including businesses and farms.
Our advisers are engaged directly by Wealthpoint Limited which holds a transitional financial advice provider licence. For more information visit here https://wealthpoint.co.nz/

Using Dunlop Insurance as your broker doesn’t cost you. Our income comes from commission paid by the insurance companies we place business with.
