About iptiQ ANZ Life & Health


iptiQ ANZ L&H is a new format for an existing life insurance venture, powered by Swiss Re Life & Health Australia


Trading under the brand of iptiQ ANZ, our vision is to protect more people and their families by making life insurance easier and more engaging.


Our mission is to offer simple insurance solutions in partnership with people's favourite brands. Through our expertise, as well as our use of data and technology, we excel at creating and evolving contemporary insurance solutions.


Our partnerships with leading brands are an essential part of the iptiQ ANZ model. We don't sell directly to the consumer but, instead, combine our expertise with our partner’s know-how in getting the right products to the right people.


Today, iptiQ ANZ has three partners, 100,000 customers and a strong ambition to grow – by doing more with our existing partners and by adding new, innovative, like-minded partners to our model.


Backed by the world's leading Life & Health reinsurer, iptiQ ANZ is embarking on an exciting journey, committed and ready to make a difference in how Australians understand, access and own life insurance protection.

iptiQ offers a flexible working environment where curious and adaptable people thrive. Are you interested in joining us?
