Calculator information.

The Term Deposit Calculator calculates the approximate total interest earned in a term deposit based on the investment amount, term duration and interest rate (per annum) selected.

The calculator assumes that a year has 12 months of exactly equal lengths. Given some months are longer than others, actual interest earned will vary depending upon the month.

The actual duration of our terms are in calendar months, and the interest earned depends on the number of days the term deposit is open for.

The interest rates displayed are for amounts from $5,000 up to $2,000,000 and are based on the term duration and interest payment frequency selected. Contact ME for rates on amounts above $2,000,000.
