Supporting our community stars

The richness of our Kiwi communities is thanks to all those not-for-profit clubs and societies dedicated to community well-being. We think they’re absolute stars which is why SBS came up with the SBS Star Account to help not-for-profits with the money stuff in the background so they can spend their time and energy being awesome.

And because every little bit counts, the SBS Star Account has no fees, no minimum opening balance, and provides a chance to win one of ten $500 prizes every month. That’s no small change – in fact, so far, we’ve given out over $1 million to our Star Account holders. Love it! Learn more here 

Socially responsible investing

If like us you’re passionate about looking for ways to do the right thing with your investments, we can help. Sit down with a Financial Adviser from FANZ Private Wealth (part of the SBS Group). FANZ offers socially responsible investment portfolios with an investment approach which seeks to invest in companies delivering both a financial return and a social benefit. Learn more here 

Good Conduct Charter

At SBS Bank, we expect the highest standards of ethical behaviour, model this behaviour and hold everyone, including Directors, Executives, employees and contractors, accountable for delivering these standards throughout the organisation. Our Good Conduct Charter describes these standards and provides a set of guiding principles to help us bring our values to life.

Helping to keep you and your funds safe

We all like to think we’re on the ball and wouldn’t get scammed out of money. But there’s some pretty convincing schemes out there, they change often and can happen so quickly. 

REMEMBER: SBS Bank (or any bank) will never ask you for your bank passwords or PIN numbers - in person, on the phone, in writing or by email. A bank email will also never have a link in the email and ask you to log into your account. If you get any such requests, phone SBS on 0800 727 2265 immediately to report it. Check out our Security page on this website for more information on keeping you and your money safe.
