Your stories + Our progress
Helping Kiwis be good with money
Our mission is to help individuals, businesses and communities be good with money, to enable a high-achieving New Zealand. This sits at the heart of everything we do.
Our promises to you
By listening to your needs, we can recommend products and services that give you the best value, to help you manage your money and make it grow.
We make it simple
We help you make smart financial decisions by making things simple. We remove the jargon and provide fast, effective service that’s right first time.
We’re straight up
Your trust is important to us, so we promise to be honest and straight up at all times. If we stuff up for any reason, we’ll fix it and do right by you.
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.
Our unique museum in Wellington showcases over 150 years of social and financial history in New Zealand. Entry is free.
Established during the 1980’s, 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.
