BGS New Zealand is pleased to announce a new partnership with ANZ Bank (NZ). Based on feedback from the recent BGS NZ COVID-19 survey, we saw a need from our members around banking and personal finance. While BGS NZ is not in a position to financially assist members, we can partner with organizations such as ANZ who can offer certain financial benefits for our members.
Thanks to the partnership, ANZ will now offer BGS NZ members a competitive banking package with a range of special discounts and benefits.
The BGS ‘ANZ@Work’ package includes:
• Special discounts on home loan interest rates
• Personal credit card with no annual fee for the first 12 months (new or existing card)
• Personal loan discounts
• Life and Living Insurance discounts
Who can register for the ANZ@Work Package?
All members of Beta Gamma Sigma NZ Alumni Chapter that presently bank with ANZ and new customers that wish to join ANZ. You will need to have your income credited to an ANZ account.
How to register for the ANZ@Work package?
1) Pop into any ANZ branch
2) Call 0800 269 296
3) Visit anz.co.nz/anzatwork
Terms and Conditions
Please refer to the attached ANZ@work benefits flyer for a full set of terms & conditions.
BGS New Zealand is pleased to announce a new partnership with Donaldson Brown (DB). In a world that has undergone significant change since the start of COVID-19, relationships and trust have become of utmost importance.
As BGS NZ continues to build new partnerships throughout New Zealand, we are looking for organisations who we can both build long-term and trusting relationships with. Having this in mind, we believe Donaldson Brown is a perfect match.
Here is what you get as a BGS NZ member:
**DB will commit to negotiating a 10% discount on new Life & Disability Insurance policies with the most suitable insurer.
**You will be managed and looked after by one of your own. Cory has been a BGS member for several years now and is wanting to give back to the society.
**DB will provide a no-obligation, free review of your existing policies.
**Alternatively, this could lead to Cory finding a package that is more suited to you and your situation. It is a win-win.
Should you have any questions regarding Life Insurance, contact Cory at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have other insurance needs, let Cory know, and he will connect you with the right person at DB as they do it all.

A big thanks to Sydney University for inviting BGS NZ members to the Pivoting Business and Brand webinar last Wednesday.
We were able to watch Brian Walker, CEO and Founder, Retail Doctor Group, and Dr. Michelle Kam, Partner, Strategy, share their insights on the challenges and opportunities facing organisations responding to the changing needs of customers and markets. The discussion was led by Dr Sandra Peter, Director, Sydney Business Insights.
Some key takeaways from the session were:
***Online retail was not an economically profitable option for many stores, now it is not only profitable but may be necessary to survive and they need to demonstrate their UVP.
***As organisations adjust their business models to meet market changes, it's essential they take their employees on the journey. This includes up-skilling and partnering to utilise staff that need to be redeployed.
***Consumers have built trust in online stores and many will continue to shop online. The main exception being for large purchases and financial decisions where face to face discussions and advice are still an important part of the process.
For those who were not able to join the discussion, please find a recording of the webinar below:
