CEO Update - December 2015

Attention: open in a new window. Print

We are half way through the financial year and Christmas is almost upon us. How time flies! It has been a busy year so far for the team at First Option.

Here is a quick summary…

In October 2015, we launched our first app – it will make your mobile banking much easier when you’re on the go. Read more...

In partnership with Western Union, we upgraded our Internet Banking service, so that members can send money overseas whenever they need to. Read more...

First Option has also introduced a new range of “smart start” accounts, designed especially for 14 to 24 year olds – tell your friends and family as they represent great value. Read more...

My team was also busy creating (and voicing) a number of online videos that talk about our wide range of products and services. You can find these on both YouTube and Vimeo.

Also, I am proud to announce that two of First Option’s products have been judged as winners in Money magazine’s 2016 Best of the Best awards. Read more...

From November 2015, your access cards will be monitored even more “vigilantly” by the new First Option Fraud Department. Read more...

Finally, on behalf of the staff, management and board of First Option, I would like to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous new year in 2016.

Dean Jepsen, CEO
