Frank Risk Management opens new Matamata branch


Hamilton commercial insurance broker, Frank Risk Management has just opened a new branch in Arawa Street, Matamata. Director David Bradbury said “It was a natural progression for Frank. We have significant business in the region already and having a branch in Matamata will support this”.

David joined the Frank Group in 2016 and is well known in the region from his previous broking role, sports and family interests. David is excited to have the opportunity to head up the Matamata branch. “There is a lot going on in the town and we offer an alternative to the traditional broking model which could save clients a significant amount of money”. 

Frank Risk Management was founded by Andrew Newman and Rene Swindley. In 2008 they started business with no client base, but a commitment to providing full disclosure fees and utilising technology to deliver insurance more efficiently. Since then they have grown to become a significant independent broking and risk management firm. Still Waikato-based, their clients span the length and breadth of New Zealand. Frank also operates two successful web based insurance businesses. Frankie, which provides business insurance online, and Initio, a specialist facility for rental properties and holiday homes. In 2016, they were awarded the Australian and New Zealand Institute of Insurance and Finance small/medium broker of the year. At the awards, they were recognised for their innovation, business growth and client focus.

Frank is committed to providing a higher standard of risk management and claims advocacy.  Our transparency and full disclosure leave clients in no doubt that we work for them, not the insurer. Frank considers claims are king! We are highly resourced with some of the most qualified industry professionals in the country to ensure events are handled with minimal disruption, and that clients receive everything to which they are entitled.

David would be happy to discuss risk management and insurance options with any business or farmers in the region.
