Asunto Insurance after 2010 and 2011 earthquakes in New Zealand
Resumen del caso In September 2010 and February 2011, four major earthquakes and an estimated 13,000 aftershocks devastated the Canterbury region, which includes New Zealand’s second largest city, Christchurch. The earthquakes resulted in 185 deaths and injured 11,432 people. The earthquakes had a major impact on Allied Mutual Insurance’s financial state given the high level of exposure to the Christchurch market, the cost of earthquake support and doubts over its ability to attain reinsurance cover. AMI received capital support from the New Zealand government in 2011 to ensure stability in the insurance market and meet claims by policyholders. The company then restructured in 2012 into two companies, including Southern Response and AMI Insurance.

Two complainants represented by the NGO Wider Earthquake Communities Action Network (WeCan) filed a complaint with the New Zealand NCP alleging that despite being owned by the government, Southern Response undertakes commercial activities through its management of AMI claims and that New Zealand Permanent Trustees Ltd. had a linked business relationship with AMI and Southern Response, because of its then role as trustee for the AMI Member Trust.
Evolución/Resultado On 9 March 2016, the New Zealand NCP rejected the complaint stating that neither Southern Response or New Zealand Permanent Trustees Ltd. are considered multinational enterprises and thus the OECD Guidelines do not fall within their scope.
