Cordell Sum Sure

Bringing greater assurance to New Zealand’s home insurance market

Cordell Sum Sure helps insurers and homeowners tackle New Zealand’s sum insured challenge by integrating detailed information about individual properties with Cordell's market leading construction cost data and building analytics. This allows Cordell Sum Sure to generate real time reconstruction estimates making it easy to help determine a nominated sum insured value.

For most properties, all that is needed is the address. Within seconds, a total rebuild-cost estimate is created, which can then be reviewed and refined if required.
