What is the Anglican Insurance Board

The Anglican Insurance Board (AIB) was established under Title B Canon XXXII of the Anglican Church at the General Synod / Te Hinota Whanui in May 2004. The relationship between the Board and Church Trust Boards is governed by Title F Canon iii, clauses 14 and 14A.1 to 14A.4. The Canon and the Trust Deed are located in the resources section of this website.

The Board provides an annual report and audited accounts to the Standing Committee of the General Synod and a biennial report to the Anglican General Synod.

The Board is registered as a charitable entity under the Charities Act 2005. Its registration number is CC40696.

What are the aims of the Board

AIB is part of the Anglican Church, and its sole purpose is to serve the Church for the benefit of all its entities. AIB aims to assist the Church by reducing insurance costs while maintaining the best protection of its assets and people. Savings on the cost of insurance means more funds for the work of the Church and its ministry. To achieve this AIB:

  • Offers aggregated insurance programmes for the whole Church.
  • Negotiates insurance renewals for participating members.
  • Provides a Risk Management guide.
