The Earthquake Commission (EQC) is a Crown entity that provides natural disaster insurance to New Zealand home owners. EQC also funds research and provides information about how homes can be made safer from damage caused by natural disasters. EQC is funded by a levy on domestic insurance policies and manages the Natural Disaster Fund, which has grown from those levies and from investment income.
