What are the features of the Citibank Term Deposit?

The Citibank Term Deposit is designed for serious investors who want a low risk way to continue seeing a return on their savings.

$0 account keeping fees

With this account you will pay no establishment fees or a monthly maintenance fee.

High, minimum investment amount of $10,000

There is a $10,000 balance minimum needed to open an account. If you have over $75,000 to invest in a term deposit, you may want to consider Citibank's $75k deposit instead.

No maximum

There is no limit to the amount you can invest with Citibank Term Deposits.

Term duration

With this term deposit, you are allowed the option of terms ranging from eight days to five years. This can be with or without the 31 day notice period.

Guaranteed interest earned

Term deposit interest earnings are guaranteed. Other Citibank investment products included in the Investment Bundle option do not necessarily guarantee returns.

Interest payments: monthly, quarterly, annually or at maturity

Interest is calculated on your balance everyday and you can choose to have it paid monthly, quarterly, annually or at maturity. Interest payments are made into a selected Citibank transaction or savings account, or can be combined with your principal balance when the account matures.

Grace period

You have five business days once the account matures to let Citibank know whether you will be withdrawing your balance, or rolling it over into a new term deposit. If you instruct Citibank to roll the account over during that period you will be able to continue receiving the same interest rate on your deposit.

31 day notice to access funds early

Unless you are experiencing a financial hardship, you must give Citibank 31 days notice if you intend to withdraw all or part of your balance before the terms mature. This is only applicable for terms where there are at least two years remaining. The interest income will be reduced by 40% of what you have earned starting from the day the account was opened until the date that Citibank processes the request for account closure and depending on how the balance is paid you could be subjected to other charges.

Foreign currencies
