About Us

Insurance is such a personal conversation, yet all too often, it involves interactions with a large corporate that is anything but personal.

At Lifestyle Cover, we guarantee your experience will be different.

Founded by Nicole Skewes in 2014, she envisaged a company of financial advisors and insurance experts that delivered a far more proactive, personal and collaborative experience. One that puts people, not insurance products, first.

Putting people first means finding options to suit you, not the other way around. And as independent advisors, we’re not limited by provider, meaning our advice will be tailored to fit both your needs and your budget while giving you the best protection for your lifestyle, your family and your future.

We also make the whole process far more empowering. We demystify insurance, ACC and Kiwisaver schemes, translate confusing and complex policy terms, keep communication easy and advocate on your behalf when you need it most.

The reason we’re so committed to a personal approach is because we’re people just like you - with families, futures and important assets we want to protect too. That’s what drives us. We put ourselves in your shoes, providing advice that always considers your priorities first to ensure no client leaves unhappy or unprotected.

We help people at all stages of life. So, if it’s time to put protection and wealth creation plans in place for your future, or you think it’s time to review your current policies, get in touch for a no obligation chat.

    review rating 5  Nicole was very friendly and professional. I really appreciated the online communication and not having to try organize insurance during the lockdown levels was a great service.

  • review rating 5  I engaged Nicole to help me review, update and add to my personal and business insurance cover, as well as ACC and Kiwisaver. I couldn't advocate more for the value that I received through working with Nicole. She made everything easy, quick and simple to understand while making sure that I had all my bases covered. I was really impressed with Nicole's efficiency, professionalism, proactive communication and knowledge. It really does feel like you have a 'personal' advisor - you can trust she is always available and ready to advocate on your behalf.

  • review rating 5  Nicole de-mystifies the language, and spends time learning about you, so she can tailor the optimal suite of products to your personal situation. Her annual dashboard is really handy; it keeps you in touch with your level of cover, without needing to dive into the detail. It also means you can renew and update over the phone, as it covers all the key points for discussion. Highly recommend for insurance as well as Kiwi Saver advice.

    review rating 5  I found Lifestyle cover after a quick google search after being entirely fed up with the lack of response from my own service provider. I heard back from Nicole the next day and she scheduled a consultation the following week. From the initial phone call I have felt like their only customer. Their Service has been 2nd to none! Various providers options have Been presented to me beautifully and very clear with no pressure or obligations felt. Highly recommend Nicole and her team.
