Other Info:


Suncorp is Australia's third largest general insurance group. The general insurance business includes personal insurance products such as home and contents and personal effects cover, motor and boat, compulsory third party insurance, workers compensation and a range of commercial insurance products tailored to the small to medium business market such as property, marine, rural and liability. 


Suncorp's insurance operation contributed $172 million before tax for the half year to December 2007. 


Suncorp acquired AMP/GIO General Insurance in 2001 and AMP Ltd's 50 percent shareholdings in motor club insurance joint ventures in RACQ (Queensland) and RAA (South Australia). Both of these joint ventures hold substantial market shares in their respective states. These businesses run independently and in competition with Suncorp's existing general insurance business. 


Following the merger with Promina, Suncorp now serves more than 6 million general insurance customers throughout Australia and New Zealand and provides personal and specialised insurances through well known brands such as AAMI, Apia, Shannons and Just Car in Australia and Vero in New Zealand.
