Supporting big goals and big thinkers

At Ando, were passionate about innovation and know (first-hand) that big things can come from small beginnings. That’s why we support local initiatives embracing technology to shape a brighter and exciting future for New Zealanders.

We’re here for the long-haul and can’t wait to see how our partner programmes flourish and grow.

Banqer


Banqer is a financial education platform that provides a hands-on environment for students to get curious, creative, and confident with money.

Alongside our partner Kiwibank, we’re proud to support the development of financial skills and awareness among young New Zealanders, giving them a head start for brighter financial futures. By educating students about the benefits of insurance, we can help protect the assets of future generations.

Dive In


Dive In is the global festival helping the insurance industry get fit for the future. The yearly event highlights the need for diverse and inclusive workplaces and provides practical ideas and inspiration for how to bring about positive change.

In New Zealand, the 2018 event focused on the topic of stigmatism towards mental health. Ando CEO John Lyon was joined by long-time mental health advocate, Mike King and Dr Jennifer Whelan in leading an interactive discussion on the subject. This was followed by workshops examining important questions and developing practical implementations for the workplace.

Ando are proud to support diversity and inclusivity in our workplace, and foster an environment with a proactive approach to mental health.

Rescue Run


This unique event pushes teams to their physical and mental limits and raises precious funding for New Zealand’s unsung heroes in our emergency response units.

Ando was a proud sponsor of the 2018 Rescue Run, also entering three teams to raise funds for the life-saving services of Coastguard, Surf Lifesaving, LandSAR (search and rescue), Fire Services, St John and Lifeline.

In the event of a natural disaster, Ando knows the importance of New Zealanders having their important assets covered, and even more so, the critical importance that our rescue services are adequately resourced to enable them to save lives.
