About Genesis

Welcome to Genesis Insurance and Financial Services Group.

The common denominator amongst businesses, large and small, public companies, partnerships, sole traders, mums and dads, is the need for sound insurance, risk management and financial services that are aligned with the client's specific operations and individual requirements.

So, your choice of insurance and financial services broker can be one of the most important decisions you make. By retaining the services of a professional broker, you are acquiring specialist expertise complimentary to your own and in doing so, putting your affairs in the hands of others.

Genesis brings to bear the highest calibre of brokers who are experts in the insurance industry and are well versed, from the complexities of high worth clients to domestic insurances of mums and dads. Our clients benefit directly from the knowledge and observations of highly experienced brokers who have encountered a wide variety of business and domestic situations across a broad range of industry sectors.

I do hope you will give us the opportunity to demonstrate our competitive advantage and to show you the quality of the GENESIS service.

The Greeks had a word for it – enthusiasm – the fire, the spirit of the Gods. We have it too!
