Southern Response / Urupare kit e Tonga
- Southern Response was set up to settle claims by AMI policyholders for Canterbury earthquake damage before April 5, 2012, the date AMI was sold to IAG.
- (As a result of the unprecedented cost of Canterbury earthquake claims, in April 2011, AMI received capital support from the New Zealand government.) More than 48,000 earthquake claims have been settled, and the remaining claims will be handled by EQC, acting as Southern Response’s agent from 2020.
