The 3 Top Reasons Kiwis get a Personal Loan

The 3 Top Reasons Kiwi’s get a Personal Loan - FIRST NZ’s New Industry Report & Survey on Personal Loans


FIRST NZ just released a new industry report showing how visible and how much online reach New Zealand’s personal loan providers have within Google’s Search Engine. Additionally, a consumer survey was carried out, discovering that Kiwis number one reason for considering a personal loan is to finance a car, closely followed by debt consolidation.

By utilising their bespoke metric called RBR (Rankings Based Reach) FIRST revealed that not banks but a non-bank lender named “Finance Now” leads the RBR for the analysed search terms – followed by Westpac, ANZ and Kiwibank.

The personal loans market is highly competitive and lots of players are looking to gain a larger proportion of market share online. Although the competition is high, more than half of all analysed companies are not “really” doing a great job and making best use of what is presumably their most cost effective marketing channel: “Search”.

A recent survey showed that usage of smartphones and tablets will continue to increase over the next few years, personal loan providers should have a plan in place to cater for the increase in mobile visitors.


FIRST found that Kiwis, apart from considering a loan for financing a car, also apply for loans for debt consolidation, and nearly one out of 8 respondents revealed covering the costs of travelling was a major consideration for them getting a personal loan. In contrast, the minority of people mentioned they applied for a loan when making “larger” investments in electronic goods such as personal computers.
