Primary industries

We give specialist advice and service to New Zealand’s primary industries, helping them with their core funding working capital, foreign exchange and trade requirements.

We support and invest in some of the country’s biggest primary industry companies, with clients in industries that range from dairy processing, red meat and horticulture, to forestry, seafood and wine.

Experts in New Zealand’s biggest sector

We know your industry

Work with one of New Zealand’s leading primary sector banks.

Our relationship managers have the knowledge and experience to help you reach your growth potential—and can put you in touch with specialists across the whole of BNZ’s Institutional banking team.

Global access, local autonomy

We can help you grow your business through our contacts as part of the global NAB group—especially in the expanding Asian markets.

And although you’ll get the benefits of our access to the worldwide market, we still have the autonomy to make the right decisions for our New Zealand clients.

Specialised services for your business

Finance to help you grow your business

We offer specialised corporate finance services that can help you fund your most important projects—or grow through a merger or acquisition.

Our finance options are tailored to your business plan and recognise the entire enterprise value of your business. We can even offer security structures that separate your business from your personal assets.
