About us

At ASB, we are dedicated to our purpose of accelerating financial progress for all New Zealanders. It's the 'why' behind everything we do. We are committed to supporting our customers, people and community as we continue to innovate, so more Kiwis can build the future they want.

Who we are

  • Our purpose
    At ASB, we have always been driven by a passion for progress.

    We deliver on our purpose by providing simple, meaningful ways to help Kiwis improve their financial wellbeing, today and tomorrow. We achieve this by doing what we do best, championing innovation and fresh thinking, so we can open up new opportunities for more people to stay one step ahead.

    We believe it is important to deliver our purpose not just for our customers, but for our communities and the New Zealand economy as a whole.

  • Our values
    Living our values is integral to achieving our purpose. They are who we are, and we are really proud of them.

    Our values of Caring, Integrity, Passion, Courage and United reflect what is great about ASB and how we work together. They guide our interactions with each other, as well as with our customers and communities. 

  • Our people
    People are at the heart of everything we do at ASB. From our values and unique culture, to our commitment and support of the communities we live and work in. We believe this is what sets us apart and is just one of the reasons why more than 1.3 million personal, business and rural customers choose to bank with us.

Our history

In 1847, at 7pm on Saturday 5 June the Auckland Savings Bank, New Zealand's first savings bank, opened on Queen Street. ASB pledged to serve the community, to grow, and to help Kiwis grow. Since then, we have been committed to bringing New Zealanders the best banking products and services possible. Over the years, we've continued to rethink the way people bank and how they interact with their money, and used these insights to develop innovative solutions that meet our customers' needs.
