In June 2021, it was announced that Hollard* planned to purchase the general insurance business CommInsure^, from the Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA). This includes an exclusive 15-year strategic alliance between CBA and Hollard to distribute home and car insurance products to CBA’s customers through the CBA brand.
From 1 October 2022, CommInsure joined Hollard and has been renamed Hollard Insurance Partners Limited (HIP).

What does this mean for you?
If you are a current CBA customer with home or car insurance, you don’t need to do anything at this stage.
Your premium for the current insurance period and your current services will remain the same.
What changes will there be?

- You’ll see a new look and feel in the messages you receive including Hollard’s logo alongside CommBank branding.
