When you choose a term deposit, you are committing your money to a kind of locked savings account for a nominated term. When the term matures, your funds are released with your additional interest payment upon request, or reinvested for a further term. If we allow access to your term deposit funds before the term has matured then interest penalties apply. If this doesn’t sound like what you’re looking for then you may wish to consider opening a savings account with us instead. Savings accounts are not locked for specified terms and can be accessed at any time.

What are term deposit rates?

Term deposit rates refer to the interest rate offered on your term deposit option. The interest rate is the percentage of your term deposit that you earn just for investing your money. A higher interest rate will earn you more money over the term of your deposit. Interest rates can vary between financial institutions so it’s a good idea to compare before choosing an investment option to make sure the account is right for you.

How often do term deposit rates change?

Term deposit rates are affected by a range of factors and may change frequently. Importantly, your term deposit rates will not change during the term of your deposit, but they may increase or decrease for new term deposits should you choose to re-invest at your current term’s maturity date.

Term deposits are amongst the most secure forms of investment which is why the interest rate is generally lower than other, riskier types of investment options.
