BNZ Bank and AMP Insurance are the companies in question. AMP chief underwriter Geoff Dyer said that the issue was to see if people were aware of the risk of HIV and AIDS.

Investment Savings and Insurance Association chief executive Vance Arkinstall said that such questions would help companies assess the risk of the people they insure.
