Term Deposit holding facility
The rates below are applicable to funds in the Term Deposit holding facility. When your funds are in the holding facility, they are renewed at a fixed interest rate every seven days until we receive your instructions for withdrawal, additional deposit or reinvestment for an agreed fixed term of one month or longer.
If you reinvest on a day that is not an interest payment date, the new term will commence from the last interest payment date. No interest is paid on funds in the holding facility for the current 7 day interest period if funds are withdrawn before the next interest payment date.

Fees

Term Deposits have no set up or establishment fee. If you seek prepayment of your term deposit prior to its maturity date, you may incur an interest adjustment and be charged an administration fee.
