As a financial cooperative the knowledge helps us make wise judgements about how we use and manage our money in ways that benefit us now and in the future, enable us to reach our goals, provide for our family and, eventually reach retirement in good financial shape.
Because we’re a 100% New Zealand owned financial cooperative it’s our business to serve our members and help them to succeed with their financial goals.
