ABFS (NSW) was established in 2006 through the merger of some prominent Sydney based insurance brokerages, with a history dating back to the 1980’s. Since then we have put together a team of advisers and client support staff with a wealth of experience and expertise in risk insurance (personal and business insurance) and superannuation.
Since 2006 ABFS has grown in leaps and bounds both organically and through the merger of external businesses into ABFS, but our focus remains clearly on our clients and helping to provide financial security at the time it is most needed.
ABFS forms part of the AUB Group Limited (ASX: AUB) providing you with the security of a large publicly listed company. The foundation of the AUB Group network lies in the ownership structure; with each individual business being run by a local director and gaining strength through the brand. Through the AUB Group network we have access to experts across many fields including general insurance, workers compensation, trade credit, livestock insurance & aviation insurance.
ABFS is jointly owned by the AUB Group and by our Managing Director Michael d’Apice. Our Principal, Ben Donald, is an equity partner in the business. ABFS also has 3 subsidiaries; all of which form part of the AUB Group network and provide risk insurance services. In June 2018 we changed our name from Austbrokers Financial Services (SYD) Pty Ltd to ABFS (NSW) Pty Ltd.
