Looking towards a united future.
At Credit Union Baywide, we’ve been working on some very exciting changes! We’re changing our branding to Unity, for one. We can finally unite all NZCU Baywide, NZCU South, NZCU Central and ACU members and teams under the one brand - Unity. This will create one unified community with a common goal - to do great things together, for the benefit of us all. That’s what a credit union is all about.


What Unity means
Unity represents our Kotahitanga, togetherness, solidarity and collective action. But we won’t just have a new name - we’ll have a bold new modern look to celebrate. Our strong stylised koru symbol represents two entities coming together, to create a long-lasting partnership - with a respectful nod to our cultural heritage, reinvented for the modern day. We’re part of modern New Zealand, and we’re proud that our new identity reflects this.

As a credit union, we believe in the power of people – and treating our members like humans, not numbers. That’s why we’ve listened to your needs and will continue to develop our services to help you get ahead. Plus, any profit we make goes back to our Unity community. At Unity, we’re more interested in making an impact, than just making money. Because really, that’s what we’ve stood for all along - doing money together, for the good of all of us.


New look and making everyday banking easier
Things will start to look a little different, but don’t worry there is nothing you need to do. You’ll still be able to do your everyday banking the same as always. Some of the improvements coming are:

  • New easier to use internet banking
  • Updated payment options in mobile banking app
  • New look website, branches and ATMs


Coming soon…
Keep a look out because we’ll be sharing more details with you very soon!
