New look for Nationwide Finance Limited

Nationwide Finance Limited is positioning itself for the future with a smart new look and plans to help even more New Zealand businesses grow and succeed.

Nationwide Finance has been a backbone of New Zealand business for more than 30 years. CEO Steve Wilson says its recent brand refresh project has brought a more modern feel to the company’s corporate identity in line with plans to broaden the company’s offering to meet changing customer needs.

“Over the past 33 years, Nationwide Finance has been a quiet achiever – making wise lending choices and helping New Zealand businesses flourish. Our proud track record proves we’re no fair weather friend. We’ve had an ongoing commitment to our customers, even when times have been tough. People in business know that our lending solutions are far more flexible and responsive than they can get at traditional banks. We can offer industry specific solutions, without the red tape.”

Nationwide Finance will continue that tradition of flexible lending solutions, with plans already underway to introduce innovative new products tailored to meet the changing needs of existing customers and open the door to new business opportunities.

Mr Wilson says, “A key to Nationwide Finance’s success over the years has been our policy of diversification. Over coming months, we will be broadening our focus within the business finance field through targeted new products that meet the changing needs of small to medium size business owners. Customers should look out for an innovative new finance package we’re currently putting the finishing touches on.”

Mr Wilson says, “Nationwide Finance is a well established, diversified company within the Hanover Group. It has a clear vision for the future and a strong new senior management team who can deliver on that vision.”
