Kriselle's journey: We do dream chasing

Kriselle is on her laptop in a café.

Voice over (VO): “Studies show that when you write down a goal, you’re 42% more likely to achieve it. That’s something Kriselle encourages her team to do with their customers.”

Kriselle receives her coffee: “Thank you”.

Kriselle: “Whatever the ambition, it’s mine to help my team and their customers realise how to make that happen.”

VO: “Like Bobby, who’s dream was to open this café.”

Kriselle and Bobby greet each other as he gives her a takeaway box.

Bobby: “There you go Kriselle.”

Kriselle: “Thanks Bobby.”

VO: “Seeing her customers succeed is Kriselle’s favorite part of her mahi”

We transition to the ANZ office.

VO: “Kriselle started at ANZ as a grad and now she’s got 16 years under her belt. She’s seen how things have changed in Aotearoa. And within the company.”

Kriselle: “Including the dress code.”

We see an employee wearing a shirt, shorts and jandals, they give Kriselle a “Kia Ora!”

Kriselle looks at her watch: “And flexible work schedules.”

We transition to a school and a school bell rings.

VO: “Which means it’s time for the school pick up.”

Agri business

Our primary and export sectors play a vital role in driving economic prosperity and ANZ works with more individual farming businesses than any other bank. We’ve been a part of New Zealand’s rural community for over 150 years and remain committed to supporting our primary industries not just now, but long into the future. 

Farmers have adapted to shifting customer and consumer preferences and public expectations, especially around sustainability, traceability and their environmental footprint. We lend to farmers who want to buy their first farms, as well as help them with their succession plans, whether that’s for their families or their retirement. 

Retail business

Our retail business team provides expert service to privately run businesses from start-ups to established companies. Ranging from early childcare education, healthcare, to property finance, we help our customers drive value using our market connections, and by making their banking as easy as possible.

Commercial business

Strong relationships are important for business success, which is why we support our commercial customers with access to knowledge, insights and connections to help them achieve their growth aspirations.

Our customers have access to the largest specialist banking teams in New Zealand which means we contribute an in-depth understanding of solutions to manage their payments, mitigate risks, fund their growth and ultimately, manage their personal wealth.
