Your everyday just got a whole lot easier. Even better banking has arrived.

At the coffee shop, deciding if it’s a skinny soy latte or a cup of tea. In a taxi stuck in traffic, wondering how much you’ve saved for your trip to Machu Picchu. On a rollercoaster, planning the decorations for your dog’s third birthday party…

Wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, our new and improved mobile app makes banking even simpler.

From checking your balances and viewing transactions to paying family and friends, mobile banking takes all the hassle out of everyday money stuff. You can now do more than ever from the comfort of your own phone - and if that’s not exciting enough, this is just the start of our mini digital revolution, with loads more improvements on the way.

So go on. Get yourself up to date.

Brads! ,


I was recently reminded by one of your staff that I had been a customer for more than 25years I believe.

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed banking with you, primarily, your convenient services suited my needs in my early career as a world traveler, secondly the excellent customer service of being able to talk with someone 24 hrs a day no matter where in the world or what time zone I was in. I’d like to think I’ll have another enjoyable 25 years with you, I’ll take what I can 😆
We’ll done FD keep up the good work.

Easy and secure

Love everything about First Direct ….. the service, the security (although frustrating when I forget my password but rather be safe than sorry!), and the ease of how easy the app is.

From everyday banking to transferring money to different countries or paying bills.

I could not think of a way to make it better …. Keep up the good work….and thank you!

Security steps could not be more annoying

On line banking with First Direct used to be a pleasure. With their new security measures, I now have to memorise multiple passwords that all have different monikers, none of which I can keep straight, and the site has lost all intuitiveness. Absolutely horrendous “upgrade “.
