FMG Insurance (formerly Farmers' Mutual Group) is a mutual insurance company in New Zealand that was established from a merger of the Farmers' Mutual Insurance Association, Taranaki Farmers' Mutual Insurance Association and Primary Industries Insurance Company Limited in 1978.[1] The company is incorporated under the Farmers’ Mutual Group Act 2007[2] and can trace its origins back to the original farmer's fire mutual organisations established in 1905.


FMG is currently sponsors of the following organisations:

  • FMG Stadium Waikato - Hamilton's major sporting and cultural events venue[3]
  • Angus NZ - the New Zealand Angus Association.[4]
  • ESNZ - Equestrian Sports New Zealand[5]
  • New Zealand Nuffield Farming Scholarships - one of New Zealand's most prestigious farming awards.[6]

FMG formally held naming rights to Arena 1 in Palmerston North, Arena Manawatu's main outdoor venue. It held naming rights from 2005 until 2015.[7][8]
