Award notes

Canstar Bank of the Year Award: The award aims to give recognition to the institutions who offer quality term deposit products across rates, terms and product features. The winners were awarded points for their comparative pricing and the array of positive features attached to the product.

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 all months are 30 days long. 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 $1,000 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.
