Hisco's family lived at the the St Heliers Bay Road property, which an ANZ subsidiary bought in 2011, and on sold in 2017.
The FMA says the sale should have been disclosed as a related party transaction in its financial statements.
But an ANZ spokesperson says an external auditor reached a different conclusion.
It says it considers the transaction not to be material information.
