Growing New Zealanders’ financial wellbeing.

Toitū te pūtea.

We want all New Zealanders to be financially secure and independent, enabling them to reach their full potential.

Increased economic participation and inclusive prosperity is beneficial to all. One in four New Zealand children live in low-income homes, which can mean lower levels of education, poorer health and higher rates of criminal offending in adulthood. Growing poverty leads to poor social outcomes, which reduces prosperity.

How will we achieve this?

01. Grow financial capability.

Provide financial education and help our customers manage their money better.

02. Grow financial independence.

Help New Zealanders participate in the economy and grow their wealth.
