New to first direct
This product is only available to first direct Current Account customers.
To enable us to focus on supporting our existing customers and their immediate financial needs, we have taken the decision to withdraw first direct current accounts to new customers.
We hope this will only be a temporary measure so please keep checking back here for updates.
