Once trade was by barter
— Today there's a better way
In New Zealand's early days there was no money or banking system to help in the exchange of clothing, food and essential services. But since 1861, the Bank of New Zealand has offered all the advantages of a modern bank to Maori and Pakeha alike.
A cheque account in your local BNZ will help you keep track of your finances … make it easier to pay bills. Your money is safe with the BNZ … the only bank that is wholly owned and operated by New Zealanders.
