Awards and recognition for NZCU Baywide

We are very honoured to have been recognised for our service and products

Awards and recognition


5 star rating for outstanding value from Canstar


CANSTAR Outstanding Value Car Loan

In December 2017 we were awarded 5 stars for outstanding value from CANSTAR for our car loans. CANSTAR reviewed 53 vehicle finance products from 10 providers comparing price, product flexibility, functionality, fees and charges and application process. Once again we were up against some big names and we are extremely proud to be the only credit union to receive 5 stars for our car loan product.


CANSTAR Outstanding Value Personal Loan


In December 2016 and December 2017 we were awarded 5 stars for outstanding value from CANSTAR for our secured and unsecured personal loans.

CANSTAR tested 30 loans from 10 providers and developed a comprehensive rating list to determine which products offered outstanding value for money. This included comparing loan purpose, pre-approval availability, security requirements, deposit requirements, repayment capabilities and channels of availability, as well as price and added features. As the only Credit Union to receive 5 stars for both our secured and unsecured personal loans this is a significant achievement for us and a credit to the hard work and commitments of both our online and in branch teams.


CANSTAR Outstanding Value Savings Account


In June 2016, June 2017 and June 2018 we were awarded 5 stars for outstanding value from CANSTAR for our Online Savings account.

The majority of all transaction and savings accounts are reviewed by CANSTAR each year and awarded points for comparative pricing and an array of positive features including accessibility, conditions attached to interest payments and security. As the only Credit Union to be awarded 5 stars, amongst tier 1 banks, we are honoured to receive this reward as a reflection of the quality of our savings products.

Attention Grabber Award, 2016 Wistia Choice Awards



We teamed up with Indelible to produce this award winning video.

The objective was to motivate our staff with an inspiring video that captures their emotion whilst portraying our internal values of:

Own it: We are courageous, own all our actions and always act with integrity.

Deliver it: We innovate and are inspired to deliver the best outcomes every time.

Grow together: We are in it together growing ourselves; each other and our customers.

Not only did it go down a treat at our staff conference but it also received an award from Wistia for the Attention Grabber Award, for the video with the highest play rate.
