The foundation from which we stand strong, together

Toka Tū Ake EQC is a New Zealand crown entity investing in natural disaster research to help communities reduce their risks, and providing home insurance to help communities get their lives back on track after an event.

Natural hazards where you live What we do

Toka Tū Ake EQC has adopted a new name to better represent the role our scheme plays in supporting New Zealanders.

Our new name reflects the whakapapa of our nation. Our land is constantly changing from earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, landslips and floods. Communities have lived alongside those perils for hundreds of years, and Māori have always believed the relationship and connection of people to land and nature is inseparable.
