Corporate Profile

NASFUND Contributors Savings & Loan Society Ltd (NCSL) is a financial institution which provides short to medium term financial assistance to its members – mostly NASFUND contributors.

We offer to our members a smarter and easier alternative to banks and other deposit taking institutions. Smarter because there are more ways than one to save and easier because we provide accessible services for the convenience of all our members.

Our range of services includes a selection of savings accounts and personalised loans at a very low interest rate.

History

NCSL was established in October 2003 as a result of changes made to the Superannuation Act which no longer allowed voluntary education contributions to be a part of superannuation savings.

Since then, NCSL has grown significantly introducing additional savings accounts besides the education savings account and has built a reputation for being the fastest growing savings & loan society in the South Pacific region. NCSL continues to provide attractive savings and loans products and has continuously introduced innovative services for its members’ convenience.

NCSL has a good history of strong financial performance since inception with a balance sheet that is growing every year. It has been paying an average of just over 5% in interest to its members every year.
