We're a kiwi owned and operated bank and offer home loans, personal loans and a range of banking and financial services designed for people by people.

Treating you like a person and not a number

We're one of New Zealand's smaller banks and like to see ourselves as different than the others. We treat people well and will always add a personal touch to everything we do - from answering the phone to helping you apply for a loan online we're here to make you feel like more than just a number.

What Kiwi Bank can offer you

Over the last couple of years the way that we do banking has changed dramatically and with this change has come a transformation of the lending process as well.

You can now apply for a quick loan online by simply logging in to your online banking account. Chances are you'll already have a loan offer available to you.

Unsecured loans from $2,000

At Kiwi Bank, we offer unsecured car loans from $2,000 and secured loans from $6,000. You can apply for a loan of up to $50,000 and we offer flexible loan terms that range from 6 months to 7 years. When you apply for us you will receive a decision in just 24 hours and walk into that dealership as a cash buyer with some real negotiating power!
