We’re the bank for New Zealand

We’ve been helping our customers make their goals a reality for over 150 years, and now we’re working with them to redesign banking for the future.

How we’re working with our customers


By listening to your needs, we can design banking that's more insightful, useful and relevant to your life, to help you manage your money and make it grow.

Simplifying banking

We help you make it easier to manage your money by making things simple, and being more flexible and mobile than ever. 

Being straight up

We promise to be honest and straight up at all times - and we want you to be honest and straight up with us, too, so we're always improving.

Helping communities be good with money

The Good Report is a reflection of the things that matter to us, and brings to life the great things we’re doing to enable a high-achieving New Zealand.

More than just banking



We put people first. That’s why we like to help our local communities, through volunteering and partnerships.



Protecting the environment is the responsibility of all of us – and we take active steps to minimise our impact.



Getting behind New Zealand charities and organisations and helping them to flourish is an important part of what we do.

Our heritage and history

We've come a long way since opening our doors in 1861. Visit BNZ Heritage to discover our history.

Art collection

Established during the 1980s, our art collection contains approximately 350 pieces including paintings, photographs, and ceramics.



As we approached our centenary in 1961, we recognised the need to gather and protect the records of  people, community and colourful history.
