Assuring and Enduring
Fifty Years of Civic Assurance : Tested by Time and DisasterBook - 2011
Assuring and Enduring tells of Civic Assurance's steady development as New Zealand's local government insurer of recourse, and a provider of other financial services to its members. Interspersed between chapters on the company's commercial activities - its corporate history, local government superannuation, Riskpool and the Local Authority Protection Programme Disaster Fund (LAPP) - are short sections that describe the natural hazard challenges from earthquakes, tsunamis, floods and volcanoes. A special chapter on the Christchurch earthquakes describes their impact on Canterbury councils, which have resulted in the largest claims by far made on Civic Assurance or its predecessors. Told in an accessible style and accompanied by plentiful illustrations, this is a success story of a company that has truly stood the tests of time and disaster.
