Financial institutions

As New Zealand's largest financial institution, contributing 1% to the country's GDP*, ANZ plays a key role in supporting financial institutions in the New Zealand market. Furthermore, we can connect our customers via a global network spanning 33 jurisdictions in Australasia, the Pacific, Asia, Europe and North America.

Tailored solutions

We work closely with our customers building tailored solutions to help them meet their business goals, whether that is managing risks, growing business or increasing returns. We introduce our experts in fixed income, equity, foreign exchange and commodity markets, transaction banking, supply-chain management, financing, securitisation and regulatory capital as needed to help our customers prosper.

Our team

Our experienced team combines their local and international experience in capital markets, investment banking, advisory, financial markets and transaction banking, with access to a global network of specialists in the insurance, funds management, bank and non-bank financial institutions sectors. This breadth of experience and expertise gives our customers unique insights into key domestic and global issues and opportunities.

We are interested in how emerging technologies can be harnessed to potentially bring significant efficiencies to our customers. In April 2018 we tested how blockchain could assist the insurance industry by providing a single source of truth, removing uncertainty, and helping make response times faster.
