About Us

Welcome to DPL Insurance, underwriters and distributors of both life and general insurance products to the New Zealand consumer market.


DPL Insurance Limited was founded in 1971 with the purpose of providing and administering innovative superannuation, insurance and other financial products for New Zealand personal and employee group customers.

Initially trading under the name of New Zealand Pension Plans and then as Save & Invest when SAI Life Management Limited was acquired. We became Dorchester Life Limited in 2006 when we consolidated the insurance entities.

In 2012 we became DPL Insurance Limited and now trade through three customer-facing brands:
