The SBS story

Want to help Kiwis hit their own jackpot? Be where your ideas and effort get a victory dance and doors opened? Get with real people who get your vibe?

You’re at the right place.

So, you noticed the heart in our logo - different right? That’s because we are different. In fact, we’re unique.  For starters, we’re a 100% Kiwi mutual bank – which means we’re owned by our customers (we call them our ‘Members’). In a nutshell we’re here to help and provide benefit to our Members and communities through being a prosperous and sustainable bank.

Being Kiwis and having no shareholders to fend off, means we also get to keep all our profits on this side of ‘the ditch’ to do awesome things for our Members and communities. While we began in Southland in 1869 today we’re right across New Zealand with branches, a contact centre in Invercargill (lots of us roll our rrrrs), online, digital for 24/7 access to a full range of banking services. And we all live, work and play right here. 

Our Values are in our DNA: Do What’s Right, We’re With You, Own It, One Team. It’s how we roll.

If you’ve got a warm tingly feeling by now, then you sound like one of us and we’d love to hear from you.
