Investing in term deposits

A term deposit provides the certainty of knowing exactly how much of a return you’ll get on your investment at the end of your chosen term by offering a fixed rate of interest.

We’ve chosen to partner with some of Australia’s biggest providers – Bank of Queensland, RaboDirect and the National Australia Bank. You’ll know the interest rate up front, and have a choice of 30, 90, 180 and 365 day terms.

You can invest anything from $5,000 to $5 million in a term deposit. You’ll just need to meet ongoing balance requirements.

At the end of the term, you can choose to be paid the principal and the interest as cash into your transaction account, or reinvest for another term.


Provider 30 days 90 days 180 days 365 days

National Australia Bank 1.85% 2.52% 2.55% 2.60%
RaboDirect 1.90% 2.30% 2.50% 2.50%

Effective from Friday 15 September 2017 to Thursday 21 September 2017. Rates are updated each Friday.
