First Option Bank

First Option started more than fifty years ago as a family of credit unions providing financial services to Australian employees of local and global organisations. Now as a mutual bank we provide full banking services to our members and their families. Unlike big banks we're 100% owned by our members, not by shareholders, and we reinvest all profits back into providing better services and better interest rates for our members.
