First Option Bank is a member-owned mutual bank that was founded in 1965. The ‘First Option Credit Union’ name emerged in 2005 after a merger between TAB Credit Union and Flying Horse Credit Union. Previously, several other smaller industry-based credit unions had been merged into what is now known as First Option Bank.
As a mutual bank, its members are its shareholders and profits re-invested into the business. While it was initially created to serve employees of some well-known Australian companies, it is now open to everyone.
It provides a variety of financial services, including home loans, car loans, personal loans, savings and transaction accounts, insurance and financial planning.
