What are the features of the Customs Bank Market Linked account?

  • Market linked savings account. The Market linked account has an interest rate tied to money market rates. Compared to savings accounts and other interest bearing accounts, a market linked savings account gives you a better return on your investment.
  • Interest. The Market Linked account offers one of Customs Bank’s highest rates of interest. Only the Customs Bank Edvest savings account and term deposits can offer you a better return. Interest is calculated on your account balance every day and paid into your account twice a year on the 30/06 and the 31/12.
  • Minimum balance. This account has a minimum balance requirement of $5,000. As long as you keep your balance above $5,000, you’re free to withdraw your money whenever you want.
  • Account access. The Market Linked does not offer rediCARD or debit card access and there is no direct debit facility available from this account. You can set up a direct credit to this account so you can make regular deposits from another transaction or savings account.
  • Internet banking.  Register for internet or telephone banking so you can make electronic transfers  to other accounts in Australia. You can transfer funds to another account using BPAY provided the merchant accepts BPAY payments.
  • Minimum deposit and withdrawal amount. The minimum deposit and withdrawal amount is $500. You can withdraw your funds for at least 7 days after you’ve made a deposit to the Customs Bank Market Linked account. Your funds are available any time if you maintain an account balance of more than $5,000.
  • Joint account. The Market Linked account is open to single and joint applications. If you open a joint account, you can choose the ‘operational status’ your account. Select from one only requiring one signatory to sign for transactions, any number of signatories if more than two people are listed as primary account holders or both signatories if there are two primary account holders.
