Term Deposits can help you earn great returns if you can lock your money away for a set term. So if you have savings that you don't need access to right now, a Term Deposit could be for you. Interest rates can rise and fall without notice. But once you've invested in one of our term investments (such as a Term Deposit, Monthly Interest Term Investment or Term Saver), you'll have the certainty of your fixed rate throughout its term. 

Term Deposit1 – the easy way to lock in a great return

Choose how long you want to invest for and how much you want to deposit. If you want an income, some terms let you to select how often you want your interest paid out. Or reinvest your interest and watch your deposit steadily grow as you earn interest on your interest. We do the rest.

Minimum deposit: $2,000
Maximum deposit: $1 million
Terms:   30 days to five years
Available interest payments: Generally paid at maturity, although longer terms may let you select other interest payment options 

 

Monthly Interest Term Investment – a Term Deposit that pays monthly interest

If you want a fixed regular income, Monthly Interest Term Investment1 is a great way to manage your lifestyle from month to month. Interest can be paid out or compounded monthly, and you can organise your maturity date to coincide with your future requirements.

Minimum deposit: $20,000
Maximum deposit: $1 million
Terms:   6 months to five years
Available interest payments: Monthly 

 

Term Saver – a 30-day Term Deposit with added flexibility

Term Saver1 is the way to go when you want to lock in a good return, but might have to withdraw some or all of your money at any time. It can be handy when you have the money for a house or a car, but you're still shopping around.

Minimum deposit: $5,000
Maximum deposit: $1 million
Terms: 30 days – automatically rolls over until you say ‘stop'
Available interest payments:   At the end of each term


Interest paid on the amount withdrawn before the term expires will be 1.25% p.a. less than your current Term Saver rate2.
