We are a specialist insurance brokerage
We focus on adding value to our clients by helping them make an informed decision. Our approach combines that of an insurance broker and consultant. We focus on providing expert advice to our clients while customising their insurance program and risk management solutions.
Since starting in 2013, KBI has constantly been growing. We are fast becoming a leader in the Australian Insurance 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 our offering, advice and support to meet the specific area’s needs.
Managing Director, Travis Kenzle, shares the KBI process and explains why actively reviewing your program each year is crucial. Our approach can include completing a company’s full risk profile and finding exposures and contractual requirements that can be transferred to an insurance policy. This process helps clients understand what is and isn’t covered by insurance and helps them make an overall informed decision when securing their insurance.

"We have been working with Travis, Nick and the team at KBI for a number of years and have always been impressed with the quality of their service, their understanding of the market, and value they can offer our clients."
Riverside Resources Inc.
Travis does excellent work in designing insurance that fits diverse clients and diverse needs. We have used their insurance for three years and it has provided solid coverage.
R. Anderson & Associates Inc.
Travis and his group has been providing insurance to our junior mining companies for several years and he has provided us with outstanding service over that time. He is extremely knowledgeable in his field, is very personable and I would not hesitate to recommend him and his team for business or personal insurance needs.
"Travis was always good at being straight up with answers and getting information for us and presenting it in a way that was clear and concise."
MAC Strata Management
"I have found the KBI team great to deal with as their process is simple and the level of service is excellent. Having a single point of contact to access all insurers saves me time and makes my job that much easier, as well as ensuring we get good value for our clients. I would definitely recommend using their services."
"In a world of increasing complexity and risk, Travis has a rare ability to distil decisions down to the factors which are most important and most relevant. Over the past 8 years of working closely with him, I have learned to trust his experience and instinct as it relates to a variety of insurance products. I enthusiastically endorse Travis and his work.
"I have now been working with KBI since I was introduced to the team in November 2014. Their support and advice has been second to none. I am wrapped to see this part of the business expanding and would suggest to anyone who works in this field as a HSEQ Consultant or Safety Professional to touch base with the KBI Team as a starting point. Well done guys!"
"Through my many dealings with Travis and the KBI team, I have seen firsthand their high level of service and expertise. They have proven themselves to be leaders in the field of Directors’ & Officers’ Insurance and I regularly refer our publicly traded clients to them for advice and the appropriate insurances."
