About Austbrokers SPT

Austbrokers SPT Insurance have provided risk management and insurance brokerage services since 1975.

We have helped many clients get through the worst of times and the best of times.  Helping them rebuild, recover, regroup and continue to go about their business in times of disaster. Protecting them from new risks as their business grows and evolves.

We’re the ones that deal with insurers. Managing the claims, pushing the paperwork and going into bat for you, when we need to. 

Always there when you need us.

We know a thing or two about insurance too.

All our Account Executives hold either a Dip Fin Serv (Insurance Broking), Tier 1 or Tier 2 General or Personal Advice and are are authorised to provide services through our Australian Financial Services Licence.

With extensive industry and global contacts we can source the appropriate cover for you at a competitive price.

Our Values


You can count on us to do what we say we’re going to do.

And be there when you need us.

Insurance isn't the only answer

We’re risk managers at heart. 
Before we reach for insurance, we look at ways to manage or minimise risk first.

We ask to understand

There’s no judgement. We ask questions to understand and protect you.

We are on your side. Often acting as an extension of your management team.


We strive to be one step ahead of the market.  Always looking for ways to improve the experience for our customers and team.

Long term relationships are our thing

It’s possible when you have a team that stays with the business for a long time.
You’ll always know who you’re dealing with and you’ll never be a number here. 


We spell things out, so you understand the risks you face and how to manage them.

We’re small enough to care, but big enough to deliver results.

Caring Service

We care for your business like we do our own. We get to know you because we care what happens to you and your livelihood.


The most important time to be there for you is when something goes wrong. We deal with the stress of a claim, so you don’t have to.

Community Matters

It gives us great joy to be involved in the community we serve. 
Supporting your business and local charities.


When our founder and Director, Brian Salisbury, decided to branch out on his own in 1975, he was a one-man band operating out of a small office in Caringbah.

Now, he works alongside two Directors. The company employes over 24 people from around the local Sutherland Shire and surrounds. 

Our dedicated and loyal team have been by our side for many years and it means our clients benefit from dealing with people who know them. 

Customers First

From the very beginning, the Austbrokers SPT experience stood out. 

Brian credits growing up in a family of small business owners and seeing first-hand what it takes to keep customers happy as one reason for the company success. 

Austbrokers SPT always saw the need for ethical risk advice, the importance of repeatable business systems and using technology to make things easy for clients. 

And this was way before the industry was regulated and considered a profession. 

Brian is a proud founding member of National Insurance Brokers Australia (NIBA) and the team continues to belong to the association.

Today there is a strong leadership team at SPT {Brian, Peter Hanna and Arthur Kinnas} who each bring their unique style of leadership and experience to the business. 


Being an active member of our community is our way of giving back.

Most of the team live and work in the shire and that’s why we support many local clubs and organisations. We participate in local business groups and raise funds for local charities.

We started the Tom Payne Memorial Grant

In honour of Austbrokers SPT co-founder Tom Payne, we started a memorial grant with North Cronulla Surf Life Saving Club.

The grant exists to recognise a member whose contribution enhances the reputation of the club, or surf lifesaving in general.

Together with several of Australia’s largest insurance companies, Austbrokers SPT are delighted to offer this grant in honour of Tom Payne who enjoyed a long and proud history of service to the club and the community.

Austbrokers SPT encourage members of North Cronulla Surf Life Saving club to come forward for nomination of this annual grant.
