Grow your savings and reach your goals
Term deposits are an easy way to grow your money, and start at $2,000. Please visit a store or call 0800 275 269 to apply for term deposits with a minimum deposit of $2,000 to $4,999 (not available online).
Terms that suit you
You can choose a term that suits you from a range of time frames, starting from as little as 30 day to up to five years.
Fixed interest rate
Once you’ve locked in your term, your interest rate won’t change for the length of your investment.
Take your interest at the end of your term, or reinvest. If you want an income, some terms pay interest monthly.
