On behalf of the team at RaboPlus I'd like to wish you a fantastic festive season and to thank you for your support in 2009.
On one hand it's hard to believe it will be 2010 next week, yet on the other it seems like an eternity since we were last celebrating Xmas. It's also hard to believe that RaboPlus will be 4 years old in a matter of weeks – those 4 years have really flown by!
2009 has had it's challenges, opportunities, and rewards and I see 2010 being along similar lines.
We take much pride in what we've achieved in our brief history, but more pride in the relationships we have built up with our customers over the past 4 years.
We have a few new products planned for 2010 plus we will be taking the relationships we have built up with customers to a new level and continuing to be pioneers in the NZ banking scene when it comes to transparency, social networking and engagement with customers.
There are a number of highlights, and they are not all about banking, that come to mind when I look back on 2009:
Have a safe and prosperous Xmas and New Year. For those taking a break, make the most of the opportunity to recharge your batteries. And for those working through, I hope a break is not that far away.
