Increases to FirstRate interest rates


Increased interest rates on the FirstRate Saver, FirstRate Cash Non-Auto Rebalancing and FirstRate Term Deposits on FirstChoice help you deliver more value to your clients. We’ve also negotiated with our term deposit provider (Commonwealth Bank of Australia) to introduce a special rate of 2.25%p.a. on two year term deposits.
