In insurance terms, a ‘defined event’ (also known as a ‘listed event’) on a policy is a damage-causing event which you’re insured for under that policy.  

Under ANZ’s landlord insurance policy, you will generally be covered for the following defined events:  

  • Storm 
  • Flood 
  • Explosion  
  • Lightning 
  • A falling tree or branch 
  • A riot or civil commotion  
  • Earthquake  
  • Fire 
  • Malicious damage 

In most cases ANZ will not cover damage caused by any of the above if the damage occurred within 48 hours of the start date of your policy.  

To see the full list of defined events, see the PDS.  

 

Flood damage can be treated as different to storm damage by certain insurers, and as a result you may not be automatically covered against it.  

ANZ’s building & contents landlord insurance does offer cover for flood damage, however please consult the PDS for information about exclusions and conditions that may apply.  

Yes, ANZ also offers home insurance as well as landlord insurance. By signing up for both home and landlord insurance with ANZ, you may be eligible to receive up to a 12.5% multi-policy discount on your premium.

ANZ has a long history, founded in 1835 in London and Sydney as the Bank of Australasia and moving into Melbourne in 1838. As one of the Big 4 Banks in Australia, ANZ is the largest banking group in the Pacific and New Zealand region, and is ranked among the top 50 banks in the world. 

To help Australians learn better money skills, ANZ created the free, online MoneyMinded education course, used by 360,000 people in 2015 alone. It really works – seven out of 10 people who completed MoneyMinded said they felt less stressed about their financial future. And of course, everyone can benefit from their Money Minded Monday series of handy hints videos (available on YouTube). 

ANZ supports the Australian community through initiatives such as the GIVE program, which stands for ANZ’s activities in Giving, Investing, Volunteering, and Emergency Relief, and funding worthy causes through three types of community grants. ANZ also supports the environment by reducing greenhouse gas emissions, using more than 80% renewable energy, sustainable sourcing, and recycling waste (Sustainability highlights, 2015).
