About NZX - New Zealand's Exchange

“Our people are attracted by our unique Kiwi brand and business, there’s no other place like it! We give everyone the opportunity to learn and understand the share market and other markets as professionals and as individuals.”

NZX is a New Zealand company with a strong commitment to supporting the growth of Kiwi businesses. We are extremely proud of our passion and dedication to New Zealand – working hard alongside our customers and stakeholders to grow the markets operated by NZX.

You’ll know we are New Zealand’s stock exchange, but did you know we also operate equity, debt, derivatives and energy markets, and support the growth and development of our core markets by providing trading, clearing, settlement, depository and data. To ensure we have our finger on the pulse and are well connected to New Zealand investors, NZX owns Smartshares - New Zealand’s only issuer of listed Exchange Traded Funds, and KiwiSaver provider SuperLife. We are also a provider of wealth management services for New Zealand advisers via our Wealth Technologies business.

Our hard working and dedicated employees at NZX make up the backbone of our company, and we believe our success is made through our teams – who uphold our strong collaborative culture in everything we do.

Our Values

At NZX, integrity is the foundation of everything we do. We are resilient; we evolve as the markets change. We are open to new ideas, new thinking, new people and new ways of doing business. We operate in a unique environment and we are creative in our approach to new challenges and opportunities. We deliver, we exceed and excel.

These are the values we believe in, and that we recognise and reward throughout the year with our Values Awards. These culminate in an awards evening hosted by the Board where NZX’s Chair recognises a Supreme Award winner who has exemplified our values.
