About us

We are a specialist insurance brokerage

with an emphasis on adding value to our clients by helping them make an informed decision. Our approach combines that of an insurance broker and consultant, where we focus on providing expert advice to our clients while customising their insurance program and risk management solutions.

Since starting in 2013, KBI is constantly growing and becoming a leader in the Australian market. Our primary point of difference is that we don’t try to be all things to all people.  We work in niche areas, where we can tailor an offering, advice and broker support to meet the specific area’s needs.

What We Do

Professional Lines

KBI specialises in the brokering and advisory of several Professional and Financial Lines Insurance products across numerous industries. These products include: Directors and Officers insurance for public and private companies, Management Liability, Professional Indemnity for a range of consultants/advisors/professionals, Financial Services Professional Indemnity, and Cyber Insurance for all sizes of companies.

KBI is made up of a combination of insurance brokers and business people who have a background in the areas we specialise in: former ASX listing advisors, lawyers, company secretaries, mining practice leaders, cyber and technology insurance leaders and risk managers, among others. This positions us as experts in the areas we focus on and gives us a unique understanding of the clients we work with.

Our clientele includes business owners, company secretaries, executives, corporate advisors, lawyers and consultants, among others. Please select the appropriate section below to learn more about the suitable insurance and our team of brokers.

Property

It’s important to protect your investments from the many risks that affect property in Australia. Whether it is a commercial building, residential strata, or anything in between, having a broker who understands these risks and the process involved is key to the insurance and risk management of a property.

KBI are specialists in various areas of the property sector, including Commercial Property, Industrial Property, Vacant Commercial Property, Residential Strata and Commercial Strata, among others. The foundation of a Property policy is typically Building Insurance and Public Liability, but varies depending on the type of building to insure.

We deal with all types of individuals involved in the insuring process, from developers and property owners, to property/strata managers and council members. Please select the appropriate section below to learn more about the suitable insurance and our team of brokers.

Mining and Resources

The mining resources space is a unique area when assessing risks, with businesses ranging from sole trading consultants to multi-national mining companies. At KBI, we have positioned ourselves to understand the risk exposures involved in all levels of the mining and resources space, allowing us to provide insurance and risk management advice customised for each one of our clients.

Our team specialises in both the exploration space all the way up to fully operational mining and resources companies, with a focus on: Mining Consultants Insurance, Geoscience Consultants Insurance, Oil & Gas Contractors & Consultants Insurance and Mining & Resources Exploration and Operational Insurance.

We consider each of our client’s operations, activities, size and contractual requirements to arrange specialised coverage that make sense for them. Please select the appropriate section below to learn more about the suitable insurance and our team of brokers.

Business Insurance

Whether you’re a small business just starting up, or an established company, insuring your business is important. Business insurance is a broad term used to define a variety of insurance products, but usually refers to the general insurances related to the business operations (see our other areas of focus for more “services” based insurance).

Business insurances can include: Public & Products Liability, Workers Compensation, Office Contents and Theft Insurance, Business Interruption, Glass Insurance, Equipment & Machinery, Portable Electronics, Motor, Corporate Travel, Cyber and others.

Our approach can include completing a full risk profile of the company, drilling down on the exposures and contractual requirements that can be transferred to an insurance policy. This process helps the clients understand what is and isn’t covered by insurance and helps them make an overall informed decision when securing their insurance.

KBI is made up of a combination of insurance brokers and business people, which gives us a unique understanding of our clients and the things that are important to them. To find out more and to speak to us directly, please click the below.
