About Us

Hunter Insurance Solutions was established in 1989 by Paul Hunter. Paul Hunter recognized a need for specialised advice for areas above the 26th parallel and in 1993 Paul moved the business to Karratha Western Australia. The business was initially focused on clients in the North West of WA and this is an area in which we still have a significant number of clients. In 2006 an office in Perth was established and Paul relocated back to Perth in 2009. Today the clients we service are Australia Wide.

Our aim is to provide a personal approach getting to know our clients, to earn their trust no matter how small or large their insurance needs are. We ensure our clients are provided with the correct insurance for their needs at a competitive price.

Your dedicated broker contact also handles your claims as they know your circumstances and are best placed to get a positive outcome for you.

Paul Hunter


Starting in the insurance industry at the age of 18, I started at the very bottom and learned so much, from a lot of great people. At the tender age of 22, I was driven to offer a more personalised approach to advice, so decided to leave the security of a constant wage for the challenge of running my own business. I never looked back and grew exponentially over the following years, before branching out into Financial Services and Retail businesses, but my passion has always been insurance and the understanding of what it takes to be properly covered. Now we are part of the largest broking network in Australia, with access to well over 100 insurers and specialist underwriting agencies. Being self-employed I have a real life understanding of small to medium business and what confronts them. We really are a “people” business and the client always comes first and when things go awry, we are there standing side by side in your time of need. Outside of work, I enjoy golf, boating & fishing, as well as spending time with the family. Working towards a work/life balance, it’s definitely, a work in progress!
