The New Zealand Financial Markets Association is the professional body for wholesale (institutional) banking in New Zealand. The Association represents the interests of its members in ensuring the sound management of the over-the-counter financial markets. This is achieved by promoting effective self-regulatory initiatives, advocating for the industry, providing relevant education, and developing and implementing high professional standards to be used by members when dealing in these markets.
In 2021 the NZFMA established a subsidiary, New Zealand Financial Benchmark Facility Limited (NZFBF), to act as the Benchmark Administrator for the NZFMA owned benchmarks.
NZFMA membership is institutionally based, with members providing a wide range of financial services such as corporate banking, trading in financial instruments and trade finance.
