Welcome to the team

We’re rapt you’re going to be part of the team. To make things easy, we’ve created this neat little site to give you the low down on who we are, what we stand for and where we’re headed.

Hey. Hi there. Kia ora. Hello!

Nice to meet you. We want your first week (and beyond!) to be a great experience, so we’ve pulled together a couple of important bits of information that will make it easier for you as you step into our world. We don’t want to overwhelm you, but hey, you’re never more curious about your new place of work than right now, right?

Meet the family

You may not know this but our parent company is Kiwi Group Holdings (or KGH for short). Kiwi Group Holdings is a state owned group that has a number of companies, each providing financial services across New Zealand. Check out our family tree below…

How the family grew

  • Kiwibank was born in 2002 to provide banking services via PostShops throughout New Zealand
  • In 2006, Kiwibank invested in NZ Home Loans and four years later bought it outright
  • In 2011, Kiwibank launched Kiwi Asset Finance to provide vehicle, plant and equipment loans for business customers
  • In 2012, Gareth Morgan Investments was sold to Kiwi Wealth Management Limited, part of Kiwi Group Holdings Limited (KGHL) who also own sister company Kiwibank
  • In 2013, Kiwi Insurance received its full licence
  • In 2016, Kiwibank established Kiwi Financial Services Retail (KFSR) as the first step in transitioning staff in branches from NZ Post to Kiwibank.

And the rest, as they say, is history.
