A term deposit allows you to invest your funds for a set period of time with an agreed rate of interest paid to you at maturity. You can choose the length of your term deposit and the bank you invest with.
An estimated $8.9 billion a year is foregone in interest by investors failing to switch term deposits at maturity – and that’s just one sector of the investment market.
Those funds are lost to investors who allow maturing term deposits to roll over without researching if there is an alternative rate. It hasn’t always been easy to invest in term deposits – you can visit bank websites and explore their offers however switching between banks can be time consuming and often involves tedious paperwork.
