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

We listen

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.
