Is ASB right for me?

History

ASB opened its doors in 1847 with the pledge to serve the community; to grow; and to help kiwis grow. Over the years we've continued to rethink the way people bank and how they interact with their money. Today, ASB employs over 5,000 people to serve 1.3 million people who choose to bank with us.

Everything in one place

ASB is a full-service bank. We provide you with a range of personal, business and rural banking services including everyday transaction and savings accounts, credit cards, lending, insurances, share trading, comprehensive investment products and foreign exchange. 

Part of the community

ASB supports our local communities. We work with organisations like St John and Coastguard NZ to help make New Zealand a better place. Our sponsorships focus on community needs, sports and the arts and include ASB GetWise - a free financial literacy programme for Kiwi kids. We’re proud to be a key sponsor of the All Blacks, ASB Polyfest and the Auckland Lantern Festival.

We never stand still

Innovation is at the heart of our business. We were the first to introduce New Zealand to internet and mobile banking, and the first to open a virtual branch on Facebook.

ASB is always looking for ways to make banking more convenient. Perhaps that's why the leading financial publications The Banker has named ASB New Zealand Bank of the Year for 11 of the last 14 years.

Part of something bigger

ASB Group is one of New Zealand's largest providers of financial and insurance services. Our companies include ASB Bank, ASB Securities (share trading), ASB Group Investments (retirement savings and investments), Sovereign (life and health insurance and home loans) and The Commonwealth Bank (one of Australia's best-known providers of integrated financial services).
