Kia ora koutou, As you may have already noticed in this email, we are sporting a new look. Today, we are very excited to share with you our refreshed brand.

Ko matou nga Te Pūtea Matua.
Toitū te Ōhanga, Toitū te Oranga.
We are the Reserve Bank of New Zealand.
We enable economic wellbeing and prosperity for all New Zealanders.

We are committed to enabling a financial system that gives people, communities, businesses and New Zealand the confidence to thrive.

This is the first significant change to our branding since our foundation and signals our commitment to being relevant, open, and inclusive. As you will see in the coming months, it’s not just our logo that has changed. Our updated brand emphasises smart, simple and real language and imagery to reflect the diversity of the people we’re here for. I encourage you to read about the story behind our refreshed brand and engage with us on social media as we work on gradually introducing the changes over the coming months.

While we have a fresh new look, we will always remain grounded in our foundation, our commitment as New Zealand’s central bank, and our underlying values – wānanga (integrity), tauira (innovation) and taura (inclusion).

We are continuing to deliver on our core mandate: to promote the economic wellbeing of all New Zealanders. Most recently, we released our latest Monetary Policy Statement. The Monetary Policy Committee agreed to maintain the current stimulatory level of monetary settings. A month ago, we also published our bi-annual Financial Stability Report. Our assessment is that our financial system has coped well with the COVID-19 pandemic but vulnerabilities and risks remain. We are also pleased with the progress and development of new legislation that reforms our work, particularly the Financial Market Infrastructures (FMI) legislation being passed into law and the drafting of the new Deposit Takers Act.

Nāku iti noa, nā,
