Become a member and open your Aera account

Aera is a banking alternative for New Zealanders who want to grow their savings faster and get into their own home sooner.

We'll be opening membership registrations soon. A membership will allow you to open day-to-day and Accelerated Savings accounts, and become eligible for our Accelerated Home Ownership product.

Beyond an unequal Aotearoa

We’re here to build a country of haves. We believe in a future Aotearoa that offers equal financial opportunities to all. Where the idea that you can get ahead by working hard and saving wisely is true again, and where all young New Zealanders have a pathway to home ownership.
