  • Interest is calculated daily. The daily percentage rate is the Annual Percentage Rate divided by 365.

  • When your Term Deposit matures, the bank automatically renews the principal amount and the interest earned for the same term at the current interest rate. View the latest Term Deposit Interest Rates. Please note that after your Term Deposit automatically renews, an interest rate penalty reduction may apply to any early withdrawal. For more information, please see our Terms and Conditions.

    If your Term Deposit is maturing soon and you don’t want it to automatically renew, it’s easy to provide us with your instructions. You don’t need to call us or visit a branch.

    1. A reduction in the interest paid will apply to the amount withdrawn. When the Term Deposit is invested for a term of up to two years we will require 31 days advance written notice. When the Term Deposit is invested for a term of more than two years the following will apply:

      • Where the investment period at the time of withdrawal has been 2 years or less we will require 31 days advance written notice; or

      • Where the investment period at the time of withdrawal has been more than 2 years we will require 7 days advance written notice.

    2. For early withdrawals of a part or full amount of a Term Deposit the interest accrued or paid to that date will reduce as follows:

    Percentage of Term Remaining
