About Us

Credit Union

Welcome to the Fisher & Paykel Credit Union; a financial cooperative proudly operated for the benefit of its owners, the staff of the Fisher & Paykel family of companies.

The Fisher & Paykel Credit Union is not a Registered Bank - rather it is a Registered Credit Union.

Ownership

The Fisher & Paykel Credit Union is 100% owned by its members for their mutual benefit.

The majority of Banks in New Zealand are public listed companies whose first priority is to return a profit to its shareholders.

Credit Unions are cooperative groups whose motivation is to provide products and services to its members with competitive interest rates on savings and low cost loans. Few fees are charged and are kept to a minimum. Profit is returned annually to members by way of a dividend.

Who Can Join and How

Membership is open to all employees of the wider Fisher & Paykel group of companies in New Zealand, their partners and children.

Joining is as easy as completing the application form and bringing it to the Credit Union along with identification such as a drivers licence or passport. At that stage you can decide the type of account that will best suit your needs.

Governance

The Credit Union is governed by a Board with a maximum of 12 Directors, elected by the members at an Annual General Meeting. All members are eligible to stand for election.

The Board determines, and implements the policies of the Credit Union and is responsible for the general management of its affairs and records.

An Audit Committee, elected by the Board, conducts regular in house audits.

Legal Protection
The Fisher & Paykel Credit Union was registered and operates under a Registered Trust Deed.

On the 5th April 2001, after a change in Government legislation, the Credit Union entered into a Trust Deed.

This initiative was designed to provide members of all Credit Unions an assurance that the financial stability of the Credit Union was being monitored.
