Established in 1891, the New Zealand Bankers' Association is the industry's voice and promotes policy outcomes which contribute to a strong and stable banking system that benefits New Zealanders and the New Zealand economy.
The Association provides a forum for member banks to work together on non-competitive industry issues.
It is a non-profit unincorporated Association funded by member banks through subscriptions. Full membership of the Association is open to any bank registered under the Reserve Bank of New Zealand Act 1989.
The governing body of the Association is the Council, comprising the Chief Executive of each member bank.
Member banks work with a small professional and administrative team in Wellington to undertake the Association's work.
Affiliate membership is available to complementary organisations that provide services to banks, or are otherwise involved with the New Zealand banking industry.
