Australian Associated Motor Insurers local Limited (AAMI) is an Australian general insurance provider. They engage in life, home, travel and other various forms of insurance. Currently, it is now fully owned by Suncorp Group.

History[edit]

AAMI is funded with its current name in December 1970, after having provided insurance policies to motor clubs under an arrangement with Club Motor from 1934 onwards[citation needed]. AAMI commenced business as a motor vehicle insurer, offering an independent alternative to government-owned and motor club-owned insurers.[1]

In 1989, AAMI diversified and launched into the home insurance market. Since then, AAMI has launched into a range of other areas, including travel, life insurance and small business insurance and income protection.

In 2007, AAMI became part of the Suncorp Group.

Community Initiatives[edit]

AAMI launched a few community initiatives, such as the AAMI Skilled Drivers Course, and has partnerships with several public service services such as Victoria State Emergency Service.
