Hold funds in a foreign currency rather than having to convert your money into New Zealand dollars. Handy if you regularly make or receive foreign payments, or if you’ve recently moved to New Zealand.

Features and benefits

  • You can access your account through internet banking

  • Convert your foreign currency when you think exchange rates look good

  • You’ll get a unique account number, so you can receive payments directly into your account.
