A passion for people

Whether it’s helping parents budget for a growing family, or planting trees in a local park, we’re supporting our communities in whatever way we can.

Together, we’re doing good things

Volunteering with Closed for Good

Closed for Good is the biggest single day of corporate volunteering in New Zealand. Every year we close our doors for one day, roll up our sleeves, and get out into our communities to lend a hand. Last year, we ran 66 financial literacy projects to help people understand their finances. 

Closed for Good is just one of our volunteer days. Every staff member is entitled to take two volunteer days per year - and we make sure we put it to good use.

Financial support

Providing financial support

Our Community Finance initiative offers fee-free, low-interest and no-interest loans to families on low incomes.

Many of the loan applications are for cars, so people can get to work, or for unexpected dental bills or essential household items.

Making banking accessible to everyone

Educating communities

We work with the Commission for Financial Literacy and Retirement Income and organisations like Age Concern, to help provide resources and education to communities that need it.

Enhancing our services

We’ve made our ATMs, stores, and office buildings wheelchair accessible, and endeavour to provide services and facilities that are accessible for hearing and vision-impaired customers.

Improving standards

Together with the New Zealand Bankers’ Association and other New Zealand banks, we've supported the introduction of voluntary guidelines to meet the needs of elderly and disabled customers.
