About ANZ New Zealand
In one way or another, ANZ New Zealand touches the lives of almost every New Zealander.
Through some of New Zealand's best known financial brands, including ANZ, OnePath, ANZ Investments, UDC Finance, Bonus Bonds and ANZ Securities, we enjoy remarkable scale, diversity, resources and influence. We also have global reach as a member of the ANZ group of companies.
ANZ is currently one of New Zealand's largest companies based on profit and assets. With that scale comes responsibility, and we take that responsibility seriously.
Our breadth and diversity is reflected in our people. We employ around 9,000 people throughout New Zealand. They come from a wide range of backgrounds, skills and specialisations and we value the richness that diversity brings to our business.
We take our commitment to corporate responsibility very seriously. We believe applying sustainable business practices will help us deliver better outcomes for our customers, our staff, the environment and the communities in which we live and work. Through initiatives such as our volunteering programme and our Staff Foundation, we take pride in making a major contribution to the communities we serve.
