Kiwis should move their accounts to a NZ owned bank

01 Jan 2020

From Chris Leitch , Leader

Kiwis should make a New Year’s resolution to move their bank accounts to Kiwibank, or one of the other wholly owned New Zealand banks, said Social Credit Leader Chris Leitch.

New Year is the ideal time for Kiwis to display some patriotism, and get themselves out of the clutches of the overseas owned banks.

The big four Aussie owned banks dragged over $6 billion in profit out of the back pockets of Kiwis last year – four times more profit than the 10 largest companies on the NZ Stock Exchange. Read more
