Helping Kiwis be good with money is at the heart of what we do

We’ve been helping people and businesses grow and make their goals a reality since we opened our doors in 1861.

Supporting New Zealanders

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


We’re supporting Plunket to expand its parenting education programme so they can help more new parents across the country. 

BNZ Crusaders

In 2016, BNZ became the naming-right partner of New Zealand's most successful Super Rugby franchise, The Crusaders.

BNZ Heritage was formed to protect and share the stories, objects and artworks through our museum, art collection and archives.



Our unique museum in Wellington showcases over 150 years of social and financial history in New Zealand.  Entry is free and open to the public, school visits, and group tours.
