A data driven holistic understanding of strata insurance

In response to increased attention on strata insurance affordability and availability, regulation and the role of strata managers in strata insurance, SCA identified a need for a comprehensive, data-driven report detailing strata insurance in Australia and New Zealand,


SCA commissioned Dr Nicole Johnston, Senior Lecturer in the Department of Finance at Deakin Business School, to produce an industry-first report providing in-depth social and economic analysis of the strata industry. The purpose of the report is to aid consumers, governments, and the broader community in understanding key elements of the industry, and inform SCA’s advocacy platform for shaping the future of the industry.


The report, A data-driven holistic understanding of strata insurance in Australia in New Zealand, was launched 7 September 2021 and is available for download.
