What are the Bank of Sydney term deposit features?

  • Minimum deposit. Bank of Sydney allows for you to invest in a term deposit with a minimum of $1,000.
  • Terms. The terms start a one month and only go as long as 12 months.
  • Interest rates. Interest rates are competitive and tiered depending on how much you invest and for how long. This is at a fixed rate, guaranteeing the amount earned on your investment.
  • Interest calculation. Interest is calculated daily and deposited when the term reaches maturity.
  • Monthly interest payments. You can opt to receive your interest payments monthly if you choose terms of one year, but this will result in a reduction of the interest rate, and is not available for balances of less than $25,000.
  • Fees. You pay no fees for this account.
  • Renewal notice. Bank of Sydney will contact you in writing before the term deposit matures so that they can be advised of your intent with the balance. You will be given the option to withdraw your savings, reinvest or change the amount that you wish to reinvest.
  • Rollover. Unless you give the Bank of Sydney notice before the end of your terms, the balance will be rolled into a new term deposit for the same length of time. Keep in mind that if the interest rates have changed since your initial investment, you will be locked in at the new rate.
  • Early withdrawal. If you need to make a withdrawal before the terms mature, Bank of Sydney will charge an administration fee as well as change the rate of interest paid to reflect the difference in terms.
