Open a savings or current account

You can open an account the same day via our website, mobile app, at our branch or by calling us

Choose from our range of accounts

We have a range of current and savings accounts you can choose from based on your needs and financial goals. It may make sense to open more than one account - a checking account and a savings account - so you have access to cash for your daily expenses and enjoy the best interest rates in the market too. If you have children under 18, it's a good idea to open accounts for minors.   

We'll help you open your account the same day if you make sure to provide all the documents required when submitting your application.
