How it works.
A simple, fee-free way to invest $5,000 or more. Term Deposits earn a fixed interest rate for a fixed period of time - from 30 days to five years.
Please see the Term Deposit Term Sheet for further information.
Interest paid at maturity
For investments of less than six months, interest is paid in full at the end of the term. You can also choose to have interest paid at maturity for longer terms.
For investments of six months or longer, you can choose to have interest paid monthly or quarterly into your nominated bank account. This provides a predictable income stream.
For investments of six months or longer, interest can be compounded quarterly. It will be automatically added to your original investment, so your investment grows quickly.
Additional access option
For investments of 12 months or more, you may be able to take out up to 20% of the amount you've invested (excluding any compounding returns), without loss of accrued interest.
20% withdrawal conditions
- You provide 32 days' notice
- Your remaining balance does not drop below the minimum investment amount ($5000)
- You use the early access option only once during the terms of your investment
- The partial withdrawal is not linked to another early withdrawal.
See our Early Withdrawal Policy for more details.
- You have seven working days as a cooling off period after you take out your Term Deposit, in case you change your mind (even if you haven't yet invested any money). After that, you can only withdraw all or part of your money from your Term Deposit if we agree
- A reduced interest rate is likely to apply to early withdrawals and we will apply our Early Withdrawal Policy.
