NBS first opened its door in 1862 when Nelson was a young colonial town struggling for a toehold in the wilderness that was Tasman Bay. The people that chose to settle here were industrious, tenacious and entrepreneurial. They were looking to build a new life with new opportunities, and they needed money to build new homes. So they formed what is now know as The Nelson Building Society (NBS). It was a mutual society with the people of the region as its shareholders.
From small beginnings NBS has grown into a respected banking entity with branches in Nelson, Richmond, Motueka, Murchison, Westport and Greymouth.
