Trustworthy & Innovative

Policy Exchange has been operating in New Zealand for more than 20 years. We’re highly experienced: thousands of policy owners have used our service. Over that time we’ve seen shifts in the reasons policy owners access cash from their policy, and we now offer a range of options designed to meet those changing needs.

We know how important it is for you to be able to transact with us safe in the knowledge your interests are protected at all times. For this reason, all transactions are conducted through Covenant Trustee Services, a trusted and respected independent custodial company.

Policy Exchange can help get the most from your life policy. Working with financial advisers throughout the country we deal in a range of life insurance policies including those issued by AMP Life (including ex AXA and National Mutual policies), Sovereign Life, and Foundation Life (previously Tower Life). We recommend you contact your adviser if you’re undecided on what the best option is for you.

You can also call us directly on toll free 0800 476 542 to discuss any queries you may have regarding the options
